Deadlands: New Horizons

Headline: Hunting Trip Ends in Murder and Kidnapping

The trio make their way off their train. While in the station Adam tells them that they can have the next three days off to have fun around the town. While he was out wandering, Raylan bums into a man who tells him that the demand for furs is growing. Next the twins decide to buy the one eyed girl a shotgun. Maggie decides to use her wit to negotiate a lower price, but the store owner gets distracted by her and allows a much lower price than what it could have sold for. Alistair and the twins meet up again and head out to hunt to supplement their income. Raylan catches the track of an elk and follows it. They come to a small clearing where the elk spots them and a short chase occurs. Raylan runs right beside it, but it is Alistair who gets the killing shot. Raylan starts to clean the elk while Alistair stands beside him. Maggie wanders a little bit and notices that Winchester is on alert. She then soon hears the familiar roars of a bear. She then runs off in the direction of the sound without alerting anyone else. Thankfully Raylan noticed his sister running towards it and join in the fight. The very first thing that happens is the bear claws at Maggie nearly exposing her chest. (Alistair barely fights off the urge to just stare instead of fighting) After some time the group fells the bear. All the while the mama’s cubs were cowering in trees watching it all happen. Maggie takes the bear as her pet and gives it attention while Raylan cleans the mama bear. As the three are heading back to their horses Maggie and Raylan have a sudden realization that what had happened to the bear family was incredibly similar to what had happened to them and their parents. Maggie sets up camp outside of town while the men head in to sell the furs and get drunk. The two happen to wander into the bar of Bart Benton where they get into a good game of drunk darts. The two make a bet, but all but one of their shots missed the board completely as they had never played the game before in their lives. Bart decides to show off and gets the Bull’s Ring from behind the counter. Raylen, in his drunken stupor, whips the dart back and breaks a bottle. Bart was angry and incredibly impressed that no one got hurt in that entire fiasco. Raylan then drops unconscious onto the bar floor and wakes up about one hour later in a chair and was missing only $2. He makes his way back to the camp, gives his sister her new clothes, vomits in front of the tent, and then passes out. The night goes off without a hitch.
