And so, with much groaning and gnashing of teeth, our intrepid heroes escorted a herd of cattle across the Denver/Pueblo border. Most of the groaning and gnashing of teeth came straight from the mouth of Machine-Gun-Sullivan who has the worst time any human has ever had identifying with other living creatures, more specifically horses (or in this case a mule). He did manage to survive, and insisted on a motorized vehicle instead. How sad. He did fare better than his compatriot, however. Winona Thundercloud was bitten by a very poisonous snake and nearly died. The venom was extracted and she lived, but I’m certain she’ll be more cautious when sleeping out on the range. With the cattle delivered, the intrepid heroes received a substantial reward. Not all of their companions could join them, however, and missed out on all the fun. Oh well. Easy come, easy go. The heroes attained rank 3 in the Roughnecks shadowrunning system. The missions will be more difficult from here on in, but at least the heroes will have a better idea of what they’re getting themselves into.
