Alfred's journal (Session #1)

It was a rather pleasant train ride to Kansas. I suppose it might have gotten a little dull had I not met Miss Eddie. A rather unusual lady, she seemed rather inclined to hide her femininity. I suppose I shall have to get used to that. It seems that people in the west have deep passions for unusual matters, more on that later.

The weather is abominably hot. My complaints about the summer heat in Boston seem rather foolish in retrospect. My AC and R device certainly disagrees with the temperatures. I’ll need to improve the ventilation for the Ghost Rock combustion chamber to compensate. Its interesting to see how these devices react to the increased heat. This detail was lacking in my studies, which just goes to show how useful field testing can be.

While Miss Eddie and I were asking about the amenities in town we happened across a pair playing cards. A lady had bested a gentleman at the game, and he was most put out at the outcome. He accused her of cheating and was building such a rage that his heart gave out. The unusual part was that the other patrons of the saloon didn’t fetch a doctor at all, they immediately summoned the coroner, which leads me to believe that this is a common affair in the region.

These are the deep passions I mentioned above. I’ll need to be cautious when someone gets agitated in conversation lest I accidentally put them into a similar fit.
