About the adventure

You and your posse mounted up to help a town in need. A gang known as the Wilde Eights was terrorizing the town of Wrath Downs. The Marshal was dead. Esther Pelham, owner of the local saloon had had enough. She hired you and sure as shootin' you and some brave townsfolk drove the Eights out of town. It all ended at the local silver mine. You had the Eights cornered... then something happened. There was an explosion and cave in and choas. And the only ones to escape were you. The Eights were dead, but so were all those townsfolk that went with you. You came into town as saviors, but left as villains. The town drove you out. Esther felt bad about this, but there was nothing she could do. Now, three years later, Esther has passed away and you've been called back to pay your respects. But something stirs in the dark. Something that's calling your name and looking to finish what you started... This is a Deadlands: Weird West adventure. Pre-gens provided. But this isn't your normal shoot-em-up. The stakes are personal. Each of your characters has a tie to this town and maybe even the Wild Eights themselves. You're looking for redemption. It's time to play some cowboys and have some fun. Note that there are body horror elements in this game, and I do my best to make things eerie. But we're here to tell a great tale of the Weird West, so let's ride!

Additional Details

How to prepare

We'll play on Roll20 or on Discord. I prefer to handle combat as Theater of the Mind so the game doesn't get too slowed down. No software to install. You can bring and use your own dice if you like, or use the dice roller provided in Roll20. I also prefer to use Discord for Audio. I've run this event successfully a few times on just a simple Discord Group call

What I provide

I'll have imagery to help set the various scenes, and if we play on Roll20, I'll have all the counters ready to go.

Gameplay details

In this game you'll be doing some good role-playing, at least two combat encounters. There will also be a bit of investigation, but nothing too complex. The final encounter is more than just a combat, there's also a chance to do a Dramatic Task.
