Chapter 6.3.5: Prophet and Loss ((Moses))
September 17th, 1880. Late Afternoon. Mint Gambling Saloon, Deadwood, Sioux Nations

Moses finds himself dwelling in the tavern with Jackie Wells, Coot Jenkins, Walks The Night Alone, Kills Iron Horse, and the ever-petulant Little Crow.

The bartender has returned to his post.

"So this Path o' Stone...is it still there?" Coot asks Jackie. "Can you get back?"

Jackie sighs. "I dunno. We had a beacon to guide us down it to here, but we didn't have enough juice to power it indefinitely, and once the fellas I was with took the Heart of Darkness with 'em, the beacon vanished. If I'd been able to go with 'em, I'd know for sure. But I don't. I reckon the Path is still there, but walkin' it without some sort o' guide...well, who knows where I'd pop out? Or when?"

Coot nods "Alright." He stands. "Well, I reckon I have my work cut out fer me. I think I might know a fella who could tell me more about Stone's Bullets and maybe get a lead on The Six, but I still have things to do in Deadwood."

Jackie nods. "You and your boys comin' with us? We could use the help."

Coot shakes his head. "Don't think I can, sadly. As much as I'd like to learn the lay o' the land, it sounds like I'm gonna need to find a stronger brew for my elixir before I take any of the boys into the Huntin' Grounds. But now I know two places I can get in, and I have a better idea of what I need to do to get everyone ready. If we can kill Stone, that tilts the odds in our favor."

"Stones, plural." Jackie says. "The one who came from the future is still out there."

"Yeah." Coot says. "Well, I can cross that bridge when I get to it. Anyhow, it was a pleasure meetin' ya. I'll be in touch." With that, he picks up his Gatling rifle and heads out the door.

Little Crow looks at Moses. [Language unknown:  "A la th a anthe sheev. An een hishastio nd encentate. Ncer dian wail ut m romateoun?"]

Moses took a deep breath and released it in a long sigh.
[Language unknown:  "Iest, rom iou eineon trday. Trwe menet ul korrestincom, Notdinect Wi? Set encut ic fitier e util dayureeau pefi ilsi Preverted aich ni? Anyhe ivut leng eklahite ha, ilpre i plnce fi manforman whelo chli, ad?"]

The prophet nodded, slowly.

[Language unknown:  "Ion nimen enhas thindeint tedoreica saecil Ofusiv, k nde forrutlat p ithtedredaresom Ai th wa ilmeis. Stancehis meol whuniv whebutlat Chadma heess wamipl ain esompr alest mamenist usbethpe.]

He hung his head and closed his eyes.

[Language unknown:  "Avendevir mewil ainundate enun it ersol k trromeevbe, a manantmen t asancees in ombut ndeencntiiou eshis itas arwhca. Hi enil urul u Terastiouone eswiha, ons nce tha ne esseei wi tr nt re alant eneeat t Ss. Reho, Lardaywhi watr on ughprepre.

He raised his head again and spread his arms.

Moses doesn't turn, but keeps his back to the door.
He does call out to the Ravenite, though.
[Language unknown:  "Arev ill oreanyort o thyin omit ec werithshe thaiveanyall p pr Ouwhalri ek Osss Yinsheout lailil, Enlail ofwhar nato und, Weteil Newa. Orere eknd ndst po plas we essoersetwil a vor Nticfo Erstr Sheredioupre llhi Dersanard.

He pauses, finally turning.

Little Crow stops. He looks at Moses. Then at the floor. [Language unknown:  "E islethof tr wil Haprnt ma ca Ineinetio whemo areier."] He says, after a long pause. [Language unknown:  "Lothi artar ek Andortvenred u latillred, teast ilason our derstrnde pr is sheonsvir acsielof m romalliounte filo Ieect Hislarman.

Little Crow nods, and walks out of the saloon.

"What was that about?" Jackie Wells asks.

Kills Iron Horse sighs. "The Lodge of the Raven is gathering. It will mean war. They will raid Deadwood, spark reprisals."

"Fuck." Wells says. "That's gonna delay our trip to Devil's Tower, then. We gotta warn some folks, make preparations."

Walks The Night Alone shakes his head. "The Elder who is trapped...he needs our help, and soon. Otherwise, he may die, and whatever he could tell us dies with him. And The Ghost Dance...we vowed we would return before the Ghost Dance on Bear Butte."

Jackie sighs. "Shit." She looks over at Moses. "Got any ideas?"

Old Ways Braves:
Little Crow nods, and walks out of the saloon.

"What was that about?" Jackie Wells asks.

Kills Iron Horse sighs. "The Lodge of the Raven is gathering. It will mean war. They will raid Deadwood, spark reprisals."

"Fuck." Wells says. "That's gonna delay our trip to Devil's Tower, then. We gotta warn some folks, make preparations."

Walks The Night Alone shakes his head. "The Elder who is trapped...he needs our help, and soon. Otherwise, he may die, and whatever he could tell us dies with him. And The Ghost Dance...we vowed we would return before the Ghost Dance on Bear Butte."

Jackie sighs. "Shit." She looks over at Moses. "Got any ideas?"


Moses doesn't respond, seemingly oblivious to Jackie's question. Then he offers a deep, long sigh.
"Raven is gathering his forces at the head of Spearfish Creek. Moses could go there and speak with Raven." He cocks his head, closes his eyes and smiles, then nods. "The Lord is right. Moses is not with the mighty Rabbit. And Raven will not be talked down from his attack. Neither will his followers. There will be blood."
He shakes his head.
"You are right, Kills Iron Horse. The Elder needs help. Like Alexander in Mesopotamia, the Champions of the Lord will have to divide their forces wisely."
