Abilene Session Notes – 24 January 2015

November 17th, 1878

We blew the dam, took out the camp soldiers, freed the slaves, and quit ourselves of Dixon and Burns all in the span of a few moments – but we had the element of surprise.  Captain Dane made sure we had no such advantage when we hit the farm.
The party and their conscripts gathered in the darkness near the farmhouse.  Captain Dane called out, he told them that they “had made an enemy you can’t possibly wrap your heads around” and while he couldn’t do anything about that, he asked if there was a way to resolve the conflict without further bloodshed.  Onesimus asked for the old witch, and Dane replied that was not possible.  Knowing the Grinder would show up within hours, Onesimus shouted that they were willing to wait.
During the silence, Sheriff Dent arrived, having been alerted by the explosions.  He had been searching for the mine in the hills, but hadn’t thought to look down by the river.
Ahiga and William spread out from the main group slightly, but the silence continued.  Seri, having become bored by the inaction, sneaks to the barn and tosses a bundle of dynamite, destroying the front of the barn, killing six of the defenders, and beginning a firefight.  During the fight, a large number of the Lindsborg prisoners are killed by the entrenched defenders in the farmhouse.
The gun battle rages on…

Abilene Session Notes – 3 January 2015

November 17th, 1878

As if a camp full of slave-driving soldiers over the hill wasn’t bad enough, turns out the dead are up and walking too.  Trying to put down a passel of zombies without waking the entire camp was a bit of a chore.  Thankfully our Chinaman knew how to keep things quiet…
The party assaults the slave camp.  Seri flies to the damn and blows it with dynamite while the party fires into the camp from cover.  The mine is flooded and the surprised soldiers are gunned down.  During the firefight, Dixon and Burns attempt to sneak up on Holden and Patton and are killed.
