Frontier World – Session 03 (27/09/16)

An eager Native and a reluctant Stranger head towards the whereabouts of the roaring. Here they find a huge grizzly bear in clear pain and someone unconscious on the ground, not too far. The Native figures out the bear is going through labor, which keeps it distracted enough for her to get hold of the body and carry it away: it is revealed to be a black guy, matching the likelihoods of  Jon Jon. He wakes shortly after up with a contusion and almost total amnesia (couldn’t remember the colour of his own skin).

The Gentlemen delivers his bounties to justice, but there Grim turns his story around, claiming innocence and accusing the Stranger of Miller’s homicide instead.

The Outlaw, the Gentleman and the Gunslinger head into Black Bisons lands, looking for Jon Jon who had been seen heading off in that direction. It doesn’t take long for the tribe to find them. The Gentleman manages to strike a deal with chief Longhorn for free passage in exchange of booze. They camp for the night at the meet up point. In the morning they are joined by the Native and Stranger with Jon Jon, but also discover that the Outlaw’s posse horses have gone missing.

They go back to the Bisons, which has apparently have the horses into custody. They agree upon a future trade of animals for guns and also some kind of support from the tribe for delaying a certain train due to come to town in few days.

Back to Stringsville, they leave Jon Jon to the cares of Doc, who reckons he may recover his memory, but can’t say when. In the meantime Grim had to be left out of jail by the sheriff, for lack of evidence, and is proceeding to cover the Stranger with infamy all over the place. They decide to go and seek the Outlaw’s elder sister, Lucille, who may have evidence to incriminate Grim and free up both the Stranger and Jon Jon from suspects and accusations.

According to the Outlaw, his sister is likely planning a train robbery from her cove in the hills caves, two days ride away on the south-west side.

Frontier World – Session 02 (20/09/16)

It doesn’t take long for the captive to spill the beans about a meeting between the Stranger’s very ex partner and his elder brother, at the old parish, 1 day ride away south, down into the caldera desert. The Gunsliger stays behind at the farm to ensure ‘good faith’.

On the way across the desert, the Native has a face-to-face with a rattlesnake which concludes with her poisoned and feverish trying to make her way back to the farm.

Two more to go: he Stranger and the Gentleman eventually reach the destination, where they find the partner apparently digging his own grave, kept at gunpoint by the elder of the Jeremihas. Upon quizzing, in light of his current predicament, the partner admits he had screwed up the Gentleman’s job: he was supposed to ‘persuade’ an old banker, Mr J. Miller, about selling the Canary Graveyard mine to Mr W. Ford from Michigan (the customer, soon to arrive in town as the rail bridge gets reparired), but upon signature he got greedy with the deposit and offed the man. He the tried to get rid of his Stranger partner. Unfortunately, later on he figured out that the old man had written the selling deed in favour of Jon Jon instead, his back housekeeper, now gone missing.

The Outlaw is keen about the business opportunity and decides to contribute by offering his help and making his posse available, in exchange for a partnership in the Gentleman’s venture.

On the way back they find the Native lost, dehydrated and hallucinating. They rush as quick as they can back to town (after blowing up the farm, as planned) where the Doc manages to save her skin.

In the meantime the Outlaw and the Gentleman ask around town and find out that Jon Jon had last been seen rushing north, straight into the Black Bisons territory.

The next day the Native and the Stranger head to the sacred ground, in the forest, to gather medicament herbs for her recovery. From there, a feral ursine roar is heard coming from up north.

Frontier World – Session 01 (13/09/16)

The Stranger woke up hurting in a ragged bed inside the Gentleman’s establishment, with few hazed memories of what happened and a vivid one: being shot by his own partner. They were coming back from a ‘collection’ job, going through the forest behind the Hanger mountain. The bastard fired in his back, legged it with the goods and left him for dead at the mercy of ‘the Cub’ (a man-eating 500Kg grizzly living around there). He just manage not to bleed out and get in the saddle fro his bronco to dutifully carry him back to town.

The Gentleman was not pleased: his customer would be in town in less than two weeks if the rail repair work at the ‘roller coaster’ bridge were on schedule. He decided to took the matter into his own hands and assembled a posse with the Stranger, The Gunslinger and that little Native girls for going after the bloody Jeremiahs brothers – the former gang of that backstabbing thief.

After a three days ride south, they found them in a rotten farm up the hills. Just few on site, the others nowhere to be seen. They claimed attention with a gunshot: that never fails and actually brought a handful more down the hill on horseback, led by Heath, the younger and most hotheaded of the bros. The Gentlemen drove a hard bargain, which the Gunslinger settled for him by mowing down the counterpart with his Gatling gun, taking great care of sparing Heath, with whom the negotiation would continue.
