The Western States have entered an age of wonders. Technological innovations transform the lives of her people. Automobiles connect vast distances over glistening highways. Radio waves carry new voices, thoughts, and art to ears around the nation. Neon lights hold back the night on the shoulders of massive dams. And the train—ceaseless, thundering, unrelenting—powers it all; pumping food, material, and people through the veins of this great extractive beast.
But these new wonders have not brought blessings to everyone. With the Federal Government in the pocket of powerful Robber Barons and Vampires; the poor, and the land itself, are dispossessed and exploited. In The Western States, many stow away on the freight trains in search of paying work.
And then there are the monsters.
Werewolves prowl the Northern Prairie. Big Foots leave the woods in greater numbers. The dirt itself seems to have risen up in the Dust Bowl of the Southern Prairie. Vampires haunt the elegant mansions of Acadia, ruthlessly running their railroad lines.
The Federal Government has effectively abandoned its people. The wealthy can afford protection, but most communities are struggling to cope. This is where you come in.
You are an adventurer, a laborer, a wanderer, and a monster hunter. As a member of the International Brotherhood of Itinerant Sellswords (IBIS), you travel the rails of The Western States, selling your skills to whatever Neighborhood, Town Council, Grange Hall, or whoever will pay you for your next meal. You are a Knight of the Rails.
It’s a dangerous, precarious life, and probably not one you had planned to enter, but the people need your help. And righteousness is its own reward. Right?

Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible.
Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order.
We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders.
Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
