Deadlands: Tempestuous and Fickle Forces

Session 3

The Busybody and Arrival in Denver

Mordecai learns from Terry, the bartender of the Rusty Spur, that a man in town named Edward Jones likes to collect firearms and would possibly know how to go about procuring a gatling pistol. Mordecai and Tuxedo decide to talk to him. Devil Jim talks to Terry and asks about Hooper. Terry says he saw him and a few other “hard” men sitting in the back of the bar. Devil Jim talks to a whore who says she noticed some “hard” men enter town about a month and a half ago and believes they left for Denver. She says one was an Indian dressed in cowboy clothing. p. Mordecai and Tuxedo go to Edward Jones’ house. After a short and tense conversation with Jones, Mordecai exits and confers with Tuxedo. They come up with a plan to sneak into his house, but it ultimately fails and ends with Mordecai and Tuxedo hog tying Edward and his Wife Edna to a table. Mordecai takes Edward’s gatling pistol. Tuxedo goes to find Jim. p. The posse stay overnight and Tuxedo leaves to investigate a possible huckster on the edge of town, but the man isn’t home. While searching the Jones house, Devil Jim finds a gatling gun. A neighbor spots Jim carrying the large wooden crate inside and tells him she’ll be right over with water. In an effort to cast a hex, Tuxedo is almost taken over by a manitou. This experience doesn’t sit well with him. The neighbor eventually becomes suspicious and the posse ties her up as well. p. The posse waits around the house until 3:00 PM, then head for the train, Devil Jim stopping at the General Store to buy a Bible and some cigars. The train ride to Denver is uneventuful, other than Tuxedo lighting one of his new cigars with his gift Bible. p. Upon arrival in town, the posse eventually find room and board at the Inter-Ocean Hotel. Tuxedo attempts to break into the Museum, but is noticed by a passerby and flees. Tuxedo and Jim retire to their rooms while Mordecai heads toward the common room. He eventually gets into an argument with two hoods after asking them where he can find some work as a hired gun.
