Alan adds some more local colour to his Western town of 'Hurricane'.
Hurricane is a diverse and inclusive little community on the edge of nowhere. Here are 18 new citizens, all with something to offer the town. All towns need some entertainment, and nothing says entertainment in the Old West more than a couple of beefy pugs beating the stuffing out of each other in the street.
Well, nothing is more entertaining except maybe the town drunk shaking his leg to the sound of the fiddle. The undertaker looks on, sensing a customer in the offing.
There are still fortunes to be made prospecting in the hills...maybe. These three hopefuls heading in to town for supplies still think so. Or maybe they are so far gone with hard work and sun that they just can't face the truth that their dreams are ending in a hole scratched out of the desert stone.
Someone has to keep the peace, and when the law turns its head away it falls to the citizens. These three have tooled up, sensing trouble.
The West is changing, and the railroad is bringing new wealth and opportunity. These three have just arrived from back East, with powerful thirsts and eyes for the main chance.
Excellent stuff Alan. I'm really enjoying watching 'Hurricane' come to life over these past few months. My favourites from this group are the shifty Eastern Speculators and the stoic Barman - such great characters.
These featured 'Huricanites' will give Alan 90 points to add to his total.
