Summary: McMurdo’s girlfriend wants him to leave the valley with her, and he says they will within a year. He’s adapting well. Most like him, some hate him. They have to do favors for other “gang/freemason” clans, such as let two assassins stay with them. Then everything heats up for them when they hear the secret that Morris the detective is on their case. McMurdo seriously plans to escape now.
Mystery/Western Story Convention: The appearance of the good guy in town who will shake things up. I expect a duel at high noon soon.
