Calamity Jane Canary:
"I-I-I," She stammers, "H-have to g-g-give this to the German." She rustles the box a little. "I-I-I have t-to g-give this to the G-G-German."


It's a bomb!

...fortunately it's for the German, though, not the Australian.

Nope. He just works here.

That's...complicated. Deadwood was an illegal settlement, set up in violation of the treaty between the US and the Sioux. The Deadwood Creek treaty made Deadwood legal, but it's in Sioux-held territory, which is technically a sovereign nation. According to the Deadwood Creek Treaty, there are not supposed to be federal troops here (Custer is acting as a rogue agent), but since Custer has the largest armed force in the area, he can pretty much break any rues he wants as long as he can enforce his will, and he's declared martial law and a state of emergency. The Chinese are not US citizens, and so they have to see to their own policing (much of which is done by Iron Dragon, and so tends to skew in Iron Dragon's interests).

As for animals and updated Harrowed, its only the case when the Harrowed in question have the following flaw-and Zek does not have it.

Aura oí Death (Minor)
Some Harrowed characters wear their undeath
like a shroud. People around them instinctively
know thereís something disturbing about these
folks, though they canít quite put their finger on
exactly what it is. Itís much harder for them to
form relationships, get information, and ask for
help. Harrowed with an Aura oí Death suffer a
Charisma penalty of Ė2. Worse, their presence
causes living plants and flowers to wilt. Given 10
minutes or so, fruits and vegetables spoil in the
deaderís presence. Animals recoil at the macabre
dude. The Harrowed suffers an additional Ė2 to
Riding rolls, and must make a Riding roll to get
on a horse or other mount.

@Zek and Tan: That's not actually right. The Stone and a Hard Place update only changes the "Undeath" and "Dominion" sections of the Harrowed rules from the Player's Guide. The sections on Decay and Food and Drink and grit and sleep etc are all unchanged.

Decay has the -2 Ride penalty so it stays.

Aura o Death explicitly states that it levies an "additional" -2 penalty, which is the clue here. Where was this undead mount thing? I've never seen that in Reloaded.


@ Stray: Gotcha. I knew Custer was illegal etc, just wondering about the "normal" legal status of Deadwood. Would that make the non-chinese in Deadwood expats? They live in a foreign nation, but have no legal citizenship, I imagine. Weird.

Deadwood is a SNAFU (situation normal, all fucked up), alrighty. But yes, they would technically be expats.

That's what you're focusing on? You're alright with the Haunted Houses and the Dead walking around talking?

... and the answer is OF COURSE that Pippi Longstocking put it there, as she does every day when she goes to bed.

@Logan: on the topic of inspiring, your avatar got me to finally agree to watch Firefly when my wife brought it up last night. Only 2 episodes in, but enjoying it. Apart from Mal in the pilot, but after that smooth sailing.

My wife was disappointed that I called the villain right off the bat. Joss Whedon used the same actor in Buffy for pretty much the same twist.

Yay Firefly!

(I've been picturing Minty as a slightly palerer/shorter longer-haired ZoŽ, by the way.)

I wouldn't say I'm focused on it, so much as curious. I've get the walking talking dead, and understand haunted houses and spirits in theory. I'm cool with mysteriously appearing horses too, but I want to see the hexslingin' happen!

How much do you want to bet Sitting Duck is just repeating something some drill sergeant told him during boot camp when he was speaking his own language?
