::The saloon doors open slowly as a tall dust-covered man limps to the bar::
"Barkeep, a shot of whiskey, off the top shelf! And leave the bottle."

::He turns and survey's the occupants of the saloon, the gears in his brass-covered left hand whirred softly as he rested it lightly on his gun belt near the ebony-handled grip of the Mare's Leg holstered at his side::

"Name's McWhirter, Phaolan McWhirter"  I'm a  bounty hunter and a private detective. Used to be a Marshall up in the Oregon Territory. Made me turn in my badge when I got wounded in a jailbreak. Never been right since they shot my paw, but I'm gettin' by!
If I was gonna kill you, I'd be stepping over your body right now on my way out the door.

There are no cowboys on this forum.

As a woman living in texas, who can ride horses rather adeptly, and owns more than one cowboy hat, I sort of resent that comment :P

Getting out your way is looking good, actually. I've nearly decided to purchase a vehicle instead of purchasing a hundred plane tickets, which means I'll have more mobility when I'm on that side of the country.

I do hope you could stand a car full steampunks showing up on your doorstep! Cowboy, civl war & renn reinacting, piratical, whiskey drinking steampunks...

I told the boys we were going to storm your home, and they seem all for it, by the way.

And MW, I'm always down for a vehicle caravan :)

Be sure to fly the Texas flag as you come in, so I'll know to deactivate the mines, lock up the rabid wolverines, and put the robot gunners on stand-by. ;)

Galumphing through the swinging doors, smoke tendrils following, comes a burnt and besmutted figure. His eyes glass with fury as he stands to the bar.
He says nothing at first and simply stares ahead. He smells like a volcano and looks as though he was shot from a cannon . Slowly, he raises his hand, it is missing a finger the barkeep comes down.
"Coffee, please"

The smoldering man sips his coffee as bits of burnt sift from him...paying no heed to the gimlet stares and wrinkled noses.

The roar of a middling-large airship fills the street outside, and in strides a Tall fellow in a blue Republic of Texas Air Fleet flag officer's uniform, the Delft-blue trenchcoat barely showing any rank at all (it appears he's a commodore, but the Texians' sparing use of braid or insignia makes it hard to tell), and the naval-type saber at his hip, worn under the coat, sticking out the back and the open front at once,  exposes the cross-draw-mounted Paterson Colt on the front of the left hip, buckled on over trousers of the same color as the coat, tucked into black cavalry boots, which sport a pocket colt revolver and a dirk for a boot knife, one stuck into either boot, their pommels protriding slightly.

"Barkeep? a shotglass and a bottle each of your best whiskey, and whatever brandy you've got under or behind the bar, if'n you don't mind," he says in a thick Texian Drawl, "and I'll pay the deposit to take th' bottle with me. Durned ship's chandler forgot the grog ration!"

Miles (a sailor)Martin opens the door and comes in glances aroundto see who has come in or left, noticing the Texican gent he wanders over that direction and offers to buy him a drink. " Captain , might I buy you a drink ?" .               miles is wearing a deep blue colored bell bottom trousers, white shirt,waist coat with a sholder holster with the butt of a m1911 protruding and a saber hilt over the other sholder, seems to any onlookers that he would use the gun in the right the sword in the left. The shirt has patches onboth sleeves, the right sleeve shows a Thunderbird and on the left a NM flag with crossed black cannons over a red 45 superimposed on it , on the front of the left chest is a set of Dolphins pinned upside down over a submarine pin with a V-1 on deck, on the ribbon below are two stars, one gold and one silver.  below that is a blue enameled plate that has a rife-musket and a wreath, the right breast pocket has a set of three colored cloth strips pinned on it, as he turns toward you , you notice that he is limping a bit
