Flying Lead follows events in the small town of Shingle Springs, Montana, roundabout 18seventysomethin’
Player-lead, anything can happen… and does; it’s a hard life in them thur’ hills, so players have to keep their wits about them. They’ve got to make their money from wheelin’ dealin’, pannin’, mining or just plain banditry, but the hard bit is avoiding all the temptations that’ll see that coin end up in the strongbox of one of the many businesses in town. Or of course, the dollars might end up lining the pockets of the shady type that’s just stolen/conned/won it from them!
But even the richest character knows that money ain’t everything; tycoons or paupers, everyone’s mortal. This latest game saw a night of deep politics and treachery, ending with nearly a dozen long-standing characters heading for Boot Hill… including the town’s undertaker! Now, who wants to earn a few coins digging the graves?
