Brigadier General John Pershing looked up at the miner standing before his desk. The man was emaciated, disheveled, and filthy. He also noticed a very heavy sack tied to the rope that served as his belt.
Your comments are not on the actual page. Just one from Don M, and my reply. This scenario and terrain was designed by Garth on his basement table. He also does HO Railroad, so he had minis to draw upon and experiencing creating layouts with his children. So he gets credit for that. I get credit for the narrative. We are not really running a campaign, I just shoe horn in a points based game somewhere. Sometimes it's places where I have lived, like Shreveport, Waukegan, Tyler, but not Pennsylvania, because if the Martians are here, then it is truly "Game Over man". It's a big country. But I have only vacationed in the Rockies, and that rarely. So I look at maps, Google using keywords like "Gorge", "Ravine", "Pass" and pick an area.
I love one comment from someone on one of the other "Rocky Mountain Pass" campaign, that the creek was on the wrong side of the railroad. It tells me my readers are really looking at things, which in turn, means I have to pay attention to the details. I may spend 8 hours writing one of these up, but hundreds of people seem to read them, so the details matter.
Japanese telephones work pretty much like ours, except the person on the other end can't understand you.
