Gold City is a place where bandits roam freely, and take what they please from the good people of the town. Although the Sherriff and his deputy can sometimes bring law to the lawless folk, but the gangs of bandits are far too numerous to be completely destroyed. The Mayor agrees something needs to be done. He announces that every day, the towns-people will vote on who will be lynched. Finally, order could be restored in Gold City.
Day 6, Sunset
The town wasted no time deciding who to lynch. The whole town agreed that Username_Taken should be killed this day. They had decided to lynch him before he could even defend himself, and before the narrator could even type up a half-decent description.
Username_Taken was hung. Despite the town's confidence, he was in fact a Townie. What a shame.
Day 6, Sunrise
The sun blossomed from under the hills, and a new day started. Everyone had survived the night, but it became clear that there had been atttempts at each other's lives. ImperialScouts still limped along from the day before, and Username_Taken now had a painful-looking gun wound just below his shoulder. The town gathered around and got straight into the debate. The lynching of a bandit was more vital than ever now, as the loss of another townie life would result in a victory for the bandits and the fall of Gold City as a place for the free.
Day 5, Sunset
caswindu was taken to the gallows, to the sound of curses from the audience. It had become clear to the town that he was a bandit, despite his uniform. The sheriff tied a knot around the poor fellow's neck, and the crowd watched caswindu hang.
It was painfully obvious he was the Cavalry Officer. The town's demise was almost certain now, as there were now as many bandits as there were townies. The few remaining people of the town hoped to change that, and loaded up their guns for the coming night...
Day 5, Morning
Light spread across Gold City as the sun rose from under the hills. The town gathered together once more, although one was missing. Near the bank, the body of Tanotrooper was found.
From his clothing it became obvious he was a Local Indian. Another Townie had been killed. Grim as ever, the town entered the saloon. Username_Taken, ImperialScouts and Trexxen arrived slightly later, all looking rather tired. ImperialScouts limped behind the other two, and once the three latecomers arrived, heated debate began once more in the town.
Meanwhile, a cavalry squad arrived from the nearby fort of Legoredo, to see how the progress was going. Angry to see that no bandits had been lynched, they began placing wanted posters all over the town.
With the town's demise not far away, the town became more determined to rid themselves of the banditsand finally be free.
Day 4, Night
Tanotrooper passed through the streets, seemingly pleased with his work during the day. He walked past the local bank before coming to a sudden halt. He stood where he was, transfixed, staring at a loaded pistol aimed at his head. He began to shout, but the noise of the gunshot drowned it out. Tanotrooper was left on the ground, covered in a red liquid.
Day 4, Sunset
The town had decided. wouwie13 was to be put to death. Suspicions arose about the man from the very beginning, and his disgustingly curvy name did nothing but further prove he was a lowly bandit. The sherriff strung ol' wouwie up and hung the poor man.
After a thorough search of his house, it was discovered that he was infact a (Townie).
"Why don't we just search their houses to begin with?" asked an inquisitive sherriff. the mayor scoffed.
"Keep up that additude, son and you'll be the next one lynched."
And so the day ended, after a rather peculiar 120 hours, and darkness fell upon Gold City. Several town members loaded up their revolvers, and prepared for the grim upcoming night..
Day 4, Morning
A rooster cried, greeting the new day. The sun rose above the barren mountians, unleashing light upon the old town. The townspeople got out from their beds, still tired. They gathered at the saloon, happy to see that, once again, everyone had survived the night. Almost immediatly though accusations started flying, occasionally interrupted by the swilling of alcohol. Nothing unusual there.
Day 3, Sunset
The town had decided. lukeiamyourfather was to be hung. The poor man hardly had time to even defend himself. He was taken to the gallows, much to the delight of the crowd.
"But wait, I'm innocent!" he screamed, but the time for talking was over.
lukeiamyourfather was hung. His house was searched. Items found there were a whip, luggage, and a picture of a stagecoach. It seemed the man hung was none other than the local Stagecoach Driver. Another loyal citizen had been killed. The sky darkened, and the town went back to their houses for the night. Others stayed behind and loaded up their guns, knowing that now was the time to strike..
Day 3, Afternoon
The sherriff took a break from his tireless efforts investigating and headed to the saloon for a drink or two. He sipped at his grog, only to be interrupted by a loud racket out back. The sherriff left his table and ran to the noise. He rammed the door open to find TheBrickster hanging from the ceiling on a noose. The sherriff sprung into action, quickly cutting the rope on which theBrickster was tied. TheBrickster tumbled to the floor, gasping for breath, and the sherriff let out a sigh of relief. TheBrickster was saved, but it would take him a while to recover from the incident.
Meanwhile, the Mayor sat in his office impatiently, furius at the inactivity of the town. He doubted the town would ever be rid of criminals at this rate. The arrival of a mysterious man hadn't seemed to rouse the townies, despite the new information he had about some of the citizens. Will this information save this good town, or will it serve only to dismantle the remaining law left in the damned town.
Day 3, Morning
A rooster cried, greeting the new day. The sun rose above the barren mountians, unleashing light upon the old town. The townspeople got out from their beds, still tired. They gathered at the saloon, happy to see that, once again, everyone had survived the night. Almost immediatly though accusations started flying, occasionally interrupted by the swilling of alcohol. Nothing unusual there. There was about to be something very unusual, though. The saloon doors flapped open, and a ragged looking stranger walked in.
This stranger went by the name of Username_Taken, and although none knew him, he seemed to know quite alot about them...
Day 2, Sunset
The townspeople had been confronting each other left, right and centre and had come to no conclusion. The mayor sighed.
"We'll continue in the morning.." The townspeople returned to their houses, even more suspicous of each other..
Day 2, Midday
The Day was getting late, and the mayor was getting impatient. The inhabitants of Gold City, paranoid as ever, had spent most of the day trying to lynch everyone in sight. The mayor finally stood up, furious.
"Why you dirty yellow-bellied cowards! You folk are the most indecisive lot I've ever layed eyes on! Ya'll better finish this here investigation soon, or we're going to bed lynch-less tonight!"
With those wise words, the town once again began to route out the criminals from the good town. Or tried to atleast ...
Day 2, Morning
It had been a long and restless night. No doubt the bandits had been busy. The town awoke to the call of a rooster. All but the Brickster... he slept a few minutes longer. The town gathered together at the gallows, surprised to see everyone still alive. Rumours had already started spreading however, and it surely wouldn't be long until someone joined ricecracker in the graveyard.
Day 1, Sunset
ricecracker had been the name on the lips of many of the townspeople the whole day. Not the delicious snack either, but one of the citizens. ricecracker had tried to prove his innocence, claiming to be the deputy sherriff, but the town was having none of it. Ricecracker was taken to the gallows and hung..
Ricecracker's badge fell to the floor, with the word 'DEPUTY' engraved on it.
"Oops, looks like he was a Townie after all" said the mayor, his cheeks now a reddish colour. The townspeople, feeling rather silly, returned to their houses for the night, hoping the next day will be more successful. The bandits, however, loaded up their guns and prepared to rid themselves of a few more town members...
Day 1, Morning
The inhabitants of Gold City gathered around their trusted mayor, who clearly had something important to say. The noise of the townspeople died down as the mayor's booming voice echoed throughout the city.
"This town is in great peril! Many a bandit has made this town their home, and now, something has to be done. As the mayor, I have come up with a solution - we will all search the town, trying to route out the outlaws, and finally free this town of evil. Anyone we find suspicious will be hanged. Now, harden your hearts for the coming task. Once this is all over, we will once again be able to roam freely without the threat of bandits!"
The crowd cheered, despite the mayor's flawed system. For their spirits had been uplifted, and they would follow the mayor's plan the all the way, or die trying. The townspeople walked back to their homes, and so, presumeably, did the bandits.
