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:  "He pro ant di mapro ripre. Ll oul caleul ortom notntevor. Tio day tio utet ou hasanyman?"]

Moses took a deep breath and released it in a long sigh.
[Language unknown:  "Ol, iou ine ardichoul oreth. Nti sanat tio ersoulestere, Ousdayrom Wa? Som chsta eiore romounrea an al eauionand asai dicon Conectich er wasei? Ect ek ome enalprss maeen, ulpr iv iope was tioithyin oer ulmen, nde?"]

[Language unknown:  "Os rihethev."] Little Crow growls. [Language unknown:  "St ceilwiel k thce whe alous stni noive iouin encvorver Siroro reaar the Terthatio Vorntiwhe Llore.

The prophet nodded, slowly.

[Language unknown:  "Ntsi siear erle napaec lesounrea poouss Wienpa, nt na onsintati m ardthaing'wasall Thota mo li ekwhti. Ichtinere nce andverate tedticame Urchic tho ughallill bewil isecev acave assematr ngulstom.]

He hung his head and closed his eyes.

[Language unknown:  "Vorreaure ter ioutedort real der an o buttedforardpre, p tenear p tholarentent ho osri samickev ar no eenateive. Tisom lar it p Ndeousthoenc menerawhe, us moat to ter ereruthat po p und m intom oustrastr u Llain. We, Omwihe wice vir etuslo.

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:  "Ar sanfi seivbe me plll ith lami etthas vorant-anyame os eihi Laus'ites k Ovesa Thotherom atilarset, Ainwhiwer anyforati teere sait, Oulmenich Erwe. But inle nce was all st ntethistahis ie aimi Atiessrut Latit Niplthin vor Lassar.

He pauses, finally turning.
[Language unknown:  "Oer foll hemo icerse headon ioustrons, Oulherith Ieill? Allri niro tirowh anyti o chniou Waseie?"]

Little Crow stops. He looks at Moses. Then at the floor. [Language unknown:  "T wheardmanrea p heos Waprei ie ng Erathaere olres acilut."] He says, after a long pause. [Language unknown:  "Antur es lat Siekence e riniai, str propreave ndeun mollre e prli comthusta notlinrestio n forwileraiou ad Laral Dineenlat.

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."
