1853, the California Gold Rush is in high gear. El Alisal is the most desperate town in the West, the outlaw shadow of San Francisco. The omnipresent sycamore trees of this small town swollen with gold dust hides the dark deeds of Joaquin Murietta and his lieutenants (the PCs) as they recuperate from their last big job. Only, nobody’s seen the “Robin Hood of El Dorado” for a few days… He headed out to the Diablo Range with a new lady he met, dark haired and strange. Some townfolk heard them talking crazy about eternal life, raising the dead, and bloody revenge on the white miners who violated Murietta’s wife and killed his brother back in ’49. Maybe we should go up there and check on the boss? The gold’s running out after a few days of R&R and it’s time for the next job!

Game system variant using poker cards and casino chips and Everyone Wears a Black Hat. We will be playtesting both these light variants and the scenario itself.

Note on safety and content warning: The horror elements are based on and expanded from a mix of historical characters and fictional ones based on people and legends of the time. We will be using the X card; the GM will instruct players on how to use the X card to guide tone at the start of the game.
