COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Collista & Company arrived in Moosehead City, “Send a couple of your men to the Depot, Bill. We don’t want anyone leaving—or arriving.”

“For how long, Collista?”

“As long as we’re here,” she replied, “We also send as many men as needed to take-over the marshal’s office, maybe you should supervise.”

“Kill him?” Continue reading

“Kill him?”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Greetings Cheveyo. I am James Butler Hickok—do you know of our friends already here?”

“Yes—they have become part of the Carstairs gang.”

“WHAT?”

“It was Collista’s idea,” he replied, “She convinced Carstairs the she, Boomer, and Mac were on their side.”

“What can we do to help?”

“We’re on our way to clean Blufftown of all remaining gunfighters—join us?”

“First, we need to visit Danger Bay,” Hickok replied, “Meet us outside of Blufftown.”

“Very well,” Cheveyo replied, “You likely won’t find any answers there.”

“I suspect you are right,” Hickok agreed, “But—still…” Continue reading

“Let’s ride!”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: With two of Carstairs’ men watching—helplessly, the Silverthorn riders and a covered wagon—manned by two Farkleberry brothers Medlar Jr., and Braddock, loaded the Silverthorn family quickly and headlined towards Blufftown.

Several of the riders remained behind to prevent the two gunslingers from following until the wagon was out of sight.­ And after warning the two men, “If you try to follow—it WILL cost you your lives.”

By the time Collista, Carstairs, and company arrived at the store, the Silverthorn family was nearing the Adventure Train stopped on the tracks awaiting their arrival. Continue reading

“What’s on your mind?”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Carstairs and his bunch are BACK!” she exclaimed, They’re at Collie and Big Mac’s cabin—they are acting as though they will join them.”

“Ah—thank you Akecheta-Apenimon (Fighter-Worthy of Trust),” Samuel replied, “My son, it is once again time to assemble your riders.”

“Do you know their plans?” James asked.

“To kill all of your family!”

“We must draw them away from Danger Bay—and back to Blufftown,” James said, “You must tell them you saw us ride in that direction.”

“I will do that, James—somehow.”

“Do they know you are sentient?”

“That’s the problem—they do not.”

“Then I will send Chaska-Kohana to my riders and have them ride past the cabin,” James decided, “To get the interest of those outside the cabin.” Continue reading

“That’s the problem—they do not.”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Let’s get down to business, gentlemen.”

“Shouldn’t your husband join us?” Carstairs asked.

“He’s getting supplies,” Collie replied, “For dinner. If he gets back before we’re done, he’ll join us.”

“Ain’t you a-feared, little lady?” Hank Carlson asked, “All alone and all?”

“Sonny?” she replied with a touch of sarcasm, “It is you who should be ‘a-feared,’ I got y’all outnumbered—so shut-up—or leave.” Continue reading

“Let’s get down to business, gentlemen.”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: They were just entering Blufftown past the RR Station, “Hey Bill,” Rufus MacLintock had a tinge of excitement in his voice, “Riders in town!”

As he spoke, the riders were at the opposite edge of town.

“Three guys and a woman—riding away from us.”

“Aw Rufe,” Carstairs replied, “Let them go—they’re no threat. I don’t think they even noticed us.”

“Yeah Rufe,” his brother Ade added, “Our time would be better spent in the saloon washing the dust out of our mouths.” Continue reading

“You have a smart bride, Mac.”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Now that I’m part of the ‘Rootin’ Tootin’ Posse,’ will I see the train and its tracks?” James asked,

“Who said you were part of the posse?” Mac asked.

When he saw the crushed expression on the youngster’s face, Mac said, “What say you, Boomer?”

“We could do worse.”

“We don’t accept just anyone—especially one who is not of the 21st Century,” Mac was clearly teasing.

“Carl Hubert McIntyre!” Collie exclaimed, “Let this man be a part—we could bring him to meet his descendants.” Continue reading

“Hubert isn’t my middle name.”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “I said to Cujo,” Collie replied to the delighted Mac, “Let me get this right; ‘NOT without me, Cujo!’, yup—that’s it.”

“The ‘Posse’ will be delighted to see you, Collie,” Boomer grinned, “We can always use a new member.”

“They’re back in the 21st Century as all had things to attend to there.”

“But Cujo bends time so our absence is never noticed.”

“She does, but since you three were late in arriving in the 19th Century while the other time-travelers were here, she’s giving you more time—the others may, or may not return while you’re here.”

Episode 1—Scene 3… Forest City Rooming House Office… “Welcome Gentlemen—We’ve been told by Mr. Carstairs that you are the best of the best gunfighters. You stand to make a whole lot of money.”

“That sounds good, what must we do?” Continue reading

“I just brewed some fresh coffee.”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously—from Adventure 6: “There’s a good deal of money riding on our ability to take over the entire county,” Lea added, “IF we can find someone trustworthy to work as our foreman. I will require absolute loyalty—disloyalty is a death sentence.”

“My four friends and I are completely trustworthy,” Carstairs replied, and then added, “And if you try to cheat us, TRUST me—you will die. Do I make myself clear?”

[…]

All but Daisy, Mac and Boomer had arrived from the Nineteenth Century—and no one had noticed—except Calista McIntyre, “Where are Mac, Boomer and Daisy?”

“They have work to do there,” Cujo replied. Continue reading

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “I strongly suspect our efforts in both Moosehead City and Blufftown failed,” McGinty/Bannon concluded, “We can settle-down here for a while, I expect.”
