BIG IRON \\ BIWEEKLY TASKS [10/14]
« on: October 14, 2019, 01:03:35 PM »
      ❝ Everybody gather around. ❞ Brock was stood still in the middle of the saloon, hands in his pockets and rocking back and forth on his heels. They'd only been in Graveyard for a couple of days, and yet it felt more like home than the trailer park or schooners had ever been. Despite this twisting feeling in his gut over the idea of living a life of normalcy within this ghost town's boundaries, at least people would begin to feel safer now that they weren't exposed to the elements of the windy prairie. Brock held onto a sheet of paper, gesturing towards in briefly before walking over and tacking it to the wall.

❝ Here are some tasks that I'd like done in the next two weeks, thank you very much, folks. ❞ He cleared his throat before wandering away and taking a seat at the bar so that people could have a good look at the tasks.

Spoiler: TASKS. • show
• Clean the firearms in the gunsmiths to prevent any weapon degradation.

• Dig graves for the bodies which were found in Graveyard upon arrival.

• Groom the mustang horses as they're beginning to look unkempt.

• Trade with a nearby group for some supplies to rebuild what the group lost.

• Investigate the abandoned mine to see if there is anything worth taking.

• Play an after-dinner game with everybody to help lift their spirits.

Once again, Annie found herself in what everyone referred to as a saloon, a term she had never really heard of until now. The mention of tasks catches her attention, eager for something to do, even though she still has to find herself a home. Oops. There was always time for that later.

Stepping forward once Brock walked off, she skimmed over the list and while cleaning weapons seemed interesting, she didn't quite feel like accidentally blowing her head off. So she settled on digging graves for the bodies littered all over town. It wouldn't be her first time.

"I'll be digging graves," she announces, only loud enough for people nearby to hear, before moving out of the way so others could see.

lhamo didn’t want to do something that would take her attention away from the injured. so of course, she would be picking a task that should could easily stop and tend to someone if needed. “ill clean the weapons. if i can clean them in silas’s area, i need to keep more of an eye on him now that he’s awake.” she offered, glancing to brock.

so there were now tasks for everyone to do. didn’t it seem like there was already plenty on their plate already, getting settled into this place? however, as he glanced over them, he supposed that these were things that should actually be done.. and he hated to admit that brock was the one that came up with them all. he spared a glance brock’s way before glancing over the list. looked like burying dead bodies - not his preferred task - and cleaning weapons - also not his favorite - were already taken.. but which of these were something up his alley?

“i’ll get a group together and go investigate the mine.” he highly doubted there would be much worth taking. then again, the worst that could happen was, what? getting black lungs (as if they weren’t already charred from his previous smoking habits)? at this point, he’d take that risk merely for some fun adventure. he looked towards brock for a moment, then ended up giving a short nod. with that he then strolled off to get ready to head over to the mine.

      Hands curled into fists, both resting on either side of his hips, Kronos squeezed passed others within the group and flitted his gaze through the list. Oh bitching hell, all of the available tasks were way too demanding for a man of his capabilities.

Grooming the horses? Oh, the cheeky bastards would probably kick in his pretty face in if he ever got too close. He understood their point of view, though; he too would kick someone like him in the face if they ever got too close. As for trading... what was Kronos supposed to even say? He squinted at the request. He'd probably return with some moldy marshmallows and a hairdryer that obviously wouldn't work rather than anything of actual use.

That lead to one last task. An after-dinner game. ❝ I'll take the last one, y'little weirdos. ❞ He glanced between the other three before whistling and wandering away heedlessly. He could play truth or dare, or maybe spin the bottle. Oh, he was the harbinger of joy.
