And If Everyone Else Jumped Off A Bridge.....


After reading the other aether journals of my friends from Steelhead City and The Independent State of Caledon, I've decided to start a journal of my own. This is actually one of two chronicles that I'm writing. The second set of chronicles, entitled "Weird Wild West Tales", is currently being worked on and should be available soon. But first....


An Introduction

I left the old country some years ago, searching for my sister, Angelica. After arriving in this country, I enlisted in the army. I became a member of the Capper Brigade, quickly gaining rank of Captain. We were considered the most mentally unstable soldiers in the entire army.....or any army, for that matter. After my tenure was up, I resumed my quest in the search for my sister.
Some months later, while I was participating in a poker game in Ford City, I received a telegram from a fellow Capper, Darien Mason (an incubus and estranged son of Hades, himself), to join him in Oregon territory. The telegram couldn't have come at a better time. The other players in the game seemed to have gotten upset over me in regards to the queen that I had in my hand, and I was unable to convince them that every card deck had five queens.
I arrived in Oregon, beautiful territory, btw, to Steelhead City. There, Darien, who at the time was sheriff of Steelhead, showed me the town. I decided that Steelhead was to be my home, although I still tried to search for Angelica.
Through events that I don't wish to delve into, the job of sheriff passed from Darien to me. Steelhead had gone through some changes of it's own. No longer a quiet place, it had become quite popular, and thus, was a target for the outlaw group known as "Griefers". Needless to say, my new position kept me quite busy.
Eventually, I did find my sister, and the town discovered a secret that I had kept from them, although it was revealed in other aether journals. But all that, is best kept for another time.

Welcome to the blogging world my dear Sheriff!

Indeed, welcome my fellow Capper! The Black Hat never knew of your lycanthropy, but I did always wonder how you shrugged off that musket ball to the chest saying "it's just a flesh wound!"
