GURPS Old West/Horror:
Railway heist... arrest... haircut... murder!
Fantastic session running St. Cecilia's Blasphemous Bordello from One Shot Adventures. Two characters managed to steal a crate of silver from a corrupt mining tycoon on a train. Meanwhile, two others nearly got into a gunfight with a wanted seditionist and managed to arrest him, using Public Speaking to sway the town to support them. The tycoon, instead of leaving town as expected, stuck around to try and find out who stole his silver. The thief, a wily and beautiful grifter named Luella, panicked and convinced the nuns at the orphanage to cut her hair and loan her a more sober outfit so the tycoon won't recognize her. Her tears were real after realizing just how bad the haircut was. Meanwhile the silver was hidden in the Bulgarian doctor's office and the outlaw was locked up in the vault at the former bank. Party sleeps a nervous night at the bank, worried that someone might try to bust the outlaw out of jail. Instead, shortly after midnight, one of the nuns from the orphanage crashes against the window, leaving a bloody streak on the glass. There's been another ghastly murder at the orphanage. Despite accounting for all of the demonic candles, there is still evil afoot. Time to track down the elusive candleman at his hog farm outside of town.
(This was our third session on this "one shot." We like to luxuriate in the characters and setting. I'm guessing we'll play twice more to bring the story to a close.)
