    A letter was put up on a small job board in the sprawling city of Saint Denis. It seemed like an insignificant job, just a normal feller looking to sell his goods to a small holdfast up in the mountains...but the pay seemed well for just a simple job. It read:


    ATTENTION GUNSLINGERS, COWPOKES, AND THOSE IN NEED OF A GOOD BIT OF MONEY

    THE AMAZING MR MAGNIFICO, OF MAGNIFICO CURES, IS LOOKING FOR ABLE BODIED MEN (OR WOMEN) TO HELP HIM DELIVER A LARGE QUANTITY OF HIS MANY MAGNIFICENT ITEMS TO A TOWN WITHIN THE COLD, COLD WESTERN AREA OF THE GRIZZLY MOUNTAINS.

    THERE WILL BE NO BACKGROUND CHECKS REQUIRED FOR THIS JOB, HOWEVER, YOU WILL NEED:

    A GUN (AND/OR SIMILAR WEAPON) WITH ENOUGH AMMUNITION TO SURVIVE THE TRIP
    YOUR OWN RATIONS FOR THE TRIP
    WARM CLOTHING FIT FOR HIKING
    OTHER HIKING EQUIPMENT
    A HORSE (LESS LIKELY TO BE NEEDED BUT IF YOU WANT ONE, GET ONE)

    IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE ONE YOU WILL BE PROVIDED THE FUNDS NECESSARY TO THEN PURCHASE WHATEVER YOU NEED.

    THE REWARD FOR THIS JOB WILL BE 300 DOLLARS UPON ARRIVAL, AND 300 DOLLARS WHEN WE GET BACK TO SAINT DENIS.

    IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING ME, THE INITIAL MEETING WILL BE AT THE BASTILLE SALOON AT 8:00 PM ON THE 31ST OF SEPTEMBER, WHERE ROOMS WILL THEN BE ARRANGED FOR YOU TO GET SOME SLEEP BEFORE THE LONG TREK.

    HUMBLING AWAITING YOUR ARRIVAL,

    MR MAGNIFICO OF MAGNIFICO CURES


    Whatever the mission truly was about you took it anyway. I mean 600 dollars is a hell of a thing....and with free gear as well? What wasn't to love.

    Welcome to, what is most likely, my last attempt at a Western RP. The setting we are in is one set (sort of) in the same (or extremely similar) world as Red Dead Redemption 2, during 1908 (1 year after the Epilogue).

    This will be where a group of randoms from town work for the mysterious Mr. Magnifico and deliver whatever he needs delivering to the odd town of Briarwood within the Grizzly Mountains.

    In this RP your character might die from multiple different means (falling, the cold, wildlife, bullets etc) so be warned of that. We may also be using a rolling system for hits and such, so there is another warning.

    The normal rules apply.

    Copying is the greatest form of flattery eg it was good, so I decided it would make sense if I did it that way

    Name: Nomad (Dasodaha or Dashel Darhah)
    Gender: Male
    Age: 25
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Equipment: Rations, rope and grappling hook, hatchet, rifle.
    [​IMG]
    Personality: They seem rather aloof, not much of a big talker. He beleives actions speak louder then words. He cares very little for the words of the white man, but cares very much about children, women and animals of any race, usually opening up to them more. Basically he doesn't like talking to or taking orders from white men.
    Strengths: Tracking, Navigation, Multi-lingual (mostly english, spanish and some different native tongues), hunting, long range shooting and shooting from horse back.
    Weaknesses: Mistrust in the white man, poor social skills in towns, low alcohol tolerance.
    Backstory: Born to the Apache people in a small tribe in the South West, he lived a peaceful life among his people and was pretty well liked among them. He was an adventurous type and was a master of bow and arrow. But when the white man came they saw sister and brother tribes slaughtered. So the cheif of their tribe was part of a deal made with the white men, the tribes would have protected land in the wilds where the white man could not build. After that Dasodaha had a spirit quest and saw himself in a great battle among the white men, fighting along side them. He then left the tribe to live among and understand the white man. He earned the name nomad, learned how to use a rifle, but was mistreated by many white men, finding kindness from women and children. So he wanders the west, from the towns to the wilds, taking on jobs and waiting for the day when the battle he saw will happen.

    As a side note there will still be some prejudice towards your character, even though there is slightly less attacks on your people seeing as many of them have been relocated into reserves.
    As a secondary side note I would sayyyy that the two rifle skills are different seeing as shooting from long range is a completely different ballpark to firing a gun from horseback.

    Backstory:
    Born into an underground slave operation a good time after the Civil War, Luella was forced into labor at the early age of five, having taken the place of an older brother that fell ill after repeated whip lashings. She was pulled off the field and into the stables later on in life, giving her a love of animals: horses in particular. Not too soon after that she was forced into the home of her master where countless horrors would riddle her dreams for the rest of her life. Her opportunity for escape came in the form of abolitionists who discovered the plantation still using slavery and freed its slaves under the cover of night. Now in the west, she enjoys the free nature of being able to drink at will. Her dark skin a proud reminder of her heritage, no matter how wretched her history may be. Her chains serve as both a reminder and weapon to all those that dare her into a drinking challenge.​

    Name: Kenneth James Harrell
    Gender: Male
    Age: 28
    Appearance: With his face as seen in the gif above, Kenneth sports a muscular build and stands at 5'10. He wears a standard hat pictured in the winter picture, NOT the common wear hat. Always carries a satchel.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Equipment:

    • Black Schofield Revolver with ammunition
    • Lancaster Repeater with ammunition
    • Hunting Knife
    • Horse named Marianne
    [​IMG]
    Personality: One for a quip, Kenneth starts this journey as a optimistic young man looking for coin. His moral code is slightly bent, as he's willing to do what it takes for him to live, and he's seen as less than honorable in his style of fighting. Kenneth is a boisterous individual, capable of distractions and one to be blunt when it needs to.
    Strengths:

    • Literate - The man can read and write.
    • Gunslinger - He knows how to clean a gun, to aim and shoot one.
    • Hunting / Horse Knowledge - The man can keep a keen eye out for tracks, and knows where to pierce his target once finding it. Not all hunts are on foot, so it leads to the man being able to properly ride a horse, keeping light feet, and have a sharp eye.
    • Hand to Hand Combat - Ordinary to a bar's setting, Kenneth has found himself in bar fights. Each time he's won or lost, have only furthered his knowledge in taking and throwing a punch, or how to tackle and grapple a man.
    • Endurant - The Man has seen his fair share of scraps, and managed to come out alive. He keeps on kicking for as long as he can, so he can later dish it back out.
    Weaknesses:
    • Risk-Taking - He's known for chewing more than what he can swallow.
    • Loud-Mouth - Kenneth doesn't hold his tongue.
    Backstory:
    • Born to a lowly farmhand couple, where he spent his childroom working alongside his father on the farm.
    • Loan Sharks later killed his mother, where his father and him managed to escape. His father later skipped town with Kenneth, and the two settled in a cabin deep the woods. Kenneth in his teen years came out to be a hunter with his father, where his father died by a bear when he was 17.
    • Kenneth remained to live alone in the house with a girl he fancied from the nearby town, the two managing to barely scrape by with starvation. Said girl taught him how to read.
    • With the promise of coin, Kenneth and the girl he fancied, Marianne, joined an outlaw Gang to earn more coin and glory.
    • Years pass in the dishonorable group, Kenneth learned the hard ways of the West with it. In a train robbery gone wrong, Marianne was killed by the law, alongside every other member of his gang- Kenneth survived by jumping off the bridge they were going across to the water below.
    • Years 25-28, Kenneth remains alone in his ways. He held a part time job as a ranch hand, a hunter, and even, just once, completed a bounty.
