The adventure begins in a small town called Sutter’s Flats in southwest Texas, in early spring. How the posse ends up there is largely up to you. Perhaps they’re just riding through on their way north from Laredo or maybe they’ve been drawn near the border hunting down a bounty. Or it could be they’re on the run themselves, and it’s hard to get much farther out of the way than Sutter’s Flats!
The posse met Bill Sutter, in the bar and accepted jobs as cowboys on his travel North to sell his cattle for a reasonable price since the local buyer, Vermillion Bayou, is offering prices so low that it ain’t worth selling any of his herd here.
After some threats and a duel that left one Bartholomew Phelps dead with a bullet through the eye, our posse begin last preparations for their cattle drive.
