    It was fascinating to hear about the rough and tumble early days of Hays, Kansas, though it must have been horrifying to live there at that point. I’m trying to remember if there were any references to it on HBO’s Deadwood? It will be a good excuse to watch that series again to find out.

    I was happy to get a second session of character building. I still have no idea how the “debts” work, but I’m looking forward to seeing how things play out.

  2. After Stephen got me into Deadwood (another thing that Major Spoilers got me into), I found the Hays history pretty fascinating and interested to see how it ends up being used in the actual game.

    Enjoying Brian from Modern City and looking forward to his Hays game.

    P.S. Absolutely love Sam. Such a great addition to the group (as a player and GM)!
