It’s a wild, wild west. Even without the cowboys.
In 1865, tensions are running high between miners, militiamen, homesteaders, and the remaining Indian tribes yet to be expelled after the Colorado War and its infamous Sand Creek Massacre. Denver City is struggling to thrive as a metropolis of the western frontier, and the demand for a railroad has investors and iron-workers scrambling to compete. Though admission to the Union still stands eleven years away, the Coloradan identity has already been forged:
FIERCE, HARDY, ADVENTUROUS.
