    You find yourself on the edge of civilization early in the morning. It's a nice city, the last of its kind going this direction. After having purchased what you require for your journey, you stand around a man calling himself Josiah Barnes. You are part of a circle of men, women, children farmers, traders, miners, trappers, and other sorts of people all who will be joining you on your journey.

    Josiah Barnes

    "Welcome to the precipice, the end of the civilized world" Josiah says in a charismatic way as he stands in front of the semicircle. "You all have come here for various reasons. But all in search of a better life in the west. I too have come in search of this dream. I was a doctor in a city, driven to search for a home in the Frontier. Now, I am glad you all signed on to join my wagon train, because we will all need each other if we are going to make this trip. We all have various skills that can be used for the betterment of us all as we go through the various trials on our noble trek. So, my friends, are you ready to begin? I hope so, as we set out in an hour. Spend it as you will, but be ready as destiny wait for no man."

    Robert listened intently as Josiah spoke. He briefly looked over the others but said nothing. After the speech, Robert headed over to his wagon to double check the security of all his gear. Especially the mining tools. No sense making the journey and not being able to do any mining. He glanced around at the town and was happy to see everyone going about their business. He smiled. They have jobs that they will work at all their lives and still have nothing. He looked West to all those miles of uncertainty. "I'll take my chances out there" he thought to himself as he waited for the others to be ready to begin the journey.

    A small girl, no older than 8, runs up to Robert. "You a miner right?." she says with the curiosity of thea young. "My daddy fixed up a whole lota miners back home. Hey, you ever been in an explosion? I heard that miners can get caught in them explosions."

    Cecil knew that this was his last chance to make good in the brave new world. All his worldly goods were in that wagon. Do or die matey he thought to himself.

    The journey to this god forsaken town had not been easy, but now he was ready. Making sure that his water kegs were full, Cecil took sometime to visually check out the other members of the wagon train.

    "Damn that girl has got some muscles on her" he muttered to himself, looking over at the young woman with the blacksmiths tools @K-Man

    Cecil looked at the others, trying to decide if he should make friends with any. Safety in numbers and all that he thought.

    Ian stands in the back of the group, listening to Josiah talking about the coming days.
    Ian's hand rests near his revolver on his hip. His eyes shift about, always on the look out for potential threats.
    Ian knows he will have to travel with these people, but can he trust them is the question...

    Ian tentatively introduces himself to the others, and tries to ascertain their intentions.

    Ben stood with Ayashe a little apart from the rest of the group, (civilization made him uneasy), half listening he was more interested in his new traveling companions. Ayashe was nervous as well, her English was coming along well and she understood most of what was said, she looked at Ben after the speech he smiled "are you ready for the next great adventure", smiling Ayashe nodded. Together they checked their gear, Ayashe the wagon and Ben the animals. All seemed in order, their supplies seemed a little light, but what he had seen there was lots of game on this land and was confident they would not starve. Eager to get going he checked his weapons saddled the horse and made sure they were fed and watered. Leaving Ayashe in the cart he went over to some of the men to introduce himself.

    Josiah shook Ian's hand as he introduced himself, then he shook Ben's hand as he did the same. "It's good to meet the two of you." Looking at Ben Josiah says "A Trapper yes? Your skills will prove quite usefull I'm sure. I'm glad you will be joining us." Then looking at Ian he asks "And what is it you don, or did?"

    Robert smiled at the little girl. "Sounds like your Pa is a sawbones. Never been in an explosion that's why I still have all my parts. You run along now. I'm sure your ma is worried sick about you".
