<h1>Legend of Skaguay</h1> <h2>Part 1: Lighting Out</h2> <div class="textBox"><p>*Tuesday, January 25th, 1898.* It is a typically cold and rainy afternoon in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. Rain patters on the tin roof of your one room apartment. You sit on the edge of your bed. Your thoughts amble in the same circuit as they have since you were fired two months ago. 'Need money soon. Need to wire Lila. Can't do that without good news. Need money soon.' The chain of thought is broken by the soft scrape of paper across the dusty floorboards. A letter slid under your door. Could be your final notice of eviction.

"Dear Mr. Toren, After review of your resumé and letters of recommendation, we are pleased to inform you of your employment forthwith as Reporter and Assistant Editor with the Daily Alaskan Newspaper. Please note that the agreed upon rate of `¢`.34 per hour has been decreased to `¢`.29 per hour for the first two months of your employ so as to cover the cost of the included ticket to Skaguay. Should you decline the position, please return this refundable ticket to the sender along with your reproach. We have taken the precaution of sending this with a month of leeway for potential postal delays - your vessel does not leave until January 25th at 1:00 PM..."

Allen Hornsby Chief Correspondent for The Daily Alaskan [[Go to the Schwabacher Wharf!]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/seattle.jpg" alt="Seattle"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You reach to your chest pocket, and feel a hollow pang of unpreparedness. The letter's gone! It must have fallen out of your pocket in your rush to get down here. You have no recourse but to ask someone for directions. Looking about the wharf, you see four boat hands passing a pipe by a stack of crates nearby. They look like they work here. An uneasy looking fellow in overalls is clutching a stopwatch, and barks orders at the hands to get back to work. 'Must be their superintendent,' you recognize. [[Ask the boat hands.]] [[Ask the superintendent.]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You saunter up as the hands are wearily shoving boxes onto wooden skids. "I'm sorry to interrupt your work, but I must know which of these ships presently departs for Skaguay." One of the men slams a crate shut with an alarming crack. He looks at you incredulously, then nods in the direction of the far side of the wharf. "The Brainerd. Smaller one towards the end." You shout back over your shoulder as you run down the dock - "Thank you sir!" [[Run to find the Brainerd!]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You amble up to the superintendent as he finishes yelling at the weary workers. "Excuse me sir, I must find the vessel which departs at one o'clock for Skaguay, Alaska," you pipe up starkly. He turns and grimaces at you as though you are an unaccounted mark on his schematic of the wharf. "Your ticket, sir?" You quickly pull out your ticket and show it to him. He squints at it - then at your face incredulously. He scans his manifest, slowly flipping through pages. You check your watch. 3 minutes til 1! Finally, he bitterly replies. "The S.S. Brainerd. And you are nearly too late." He points down to the end of the wharf, shaking his head in disapproval. [[Run to the Brainerd!]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You finally make your way through the crowded wharf to the steam ship labeled "S.S. Brainerd." Your vessel looks like a poorly converted coal barge, but you've no time to complain as the last call rings out. At the bottom of the gangplank, you flash your ticket to the superintendent on hand. "Close call. Get on," he says irritably. No sooner have you boarded than the plank is pulled up by two workers. The hands on the wharf below cast the ropes on board. The Brainerd is presently underway to Skaguay. As the adrenaline subsides from your mad dash, you look at your ticket once more. It has a cabin number on it. [[Go check out your cabin.]] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>It turns out that your cabin is actually everybody's cabin. And that everybody's cabin was recently a hold for livestock. Now it's the sleeping area for you and ninety-seven others on board. Hay and animal droppings are strewn everywhere. You consider the temporary pay cut mentioned in Hornsby's letter... [[Do the math.]] [[Go above deck.]] [[Go to sleep.]] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/shipInterior.jpg" alt="Inside the Brainerd"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>The old salt is right. You are nearly too late, but a quick flash of your ticket to the attendent by the Brainerd's gangplank, and you have jaunted up just as the board is pulled up. The dock hands cast the ropes aboard, and the Brainerd is presently underway to Alaska. Catching your breath, you take a moment to register your surroundings. The Brainerd looks far less like the passenger liner you were expecting, and more akin to a converted coal barge. You look at your ticket once more. It has a cabin number on it. [[Go check out your cabin.]] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Two months pay, of ten hour work days, lessened by a nickel an hour... that's `$`30 paid for a spot on this animal barge. You start to miss your delinquent studio apartment back in Seattle. [[Go above deck.]] [[Go to sleep.]] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/shipInterior.jpg" alt="Inside the Brainerd"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You emerge above on the Brainerd's pitiably narrow wraparound deck, which is slick with rain. The ocean air has a far better quality to it than what you were breathing down below, save for the freezing temperature. Behind you, Seattle is becoming smaller by the moment as the Brainerd makes its way through the Puget Sound. The rain stings your face, and the sky grows dark. You return below to find a place to lay down. [[Go to sleep.]] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/steamship.gif" alt="The Coastline from the Brainerd"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Down below, you find a pair of hay bales tucked in a corner of the dim hold. Nestled here, you eventually fall into an exhausted sleep. The hum and clanks of the vessel, the murmurs and coughing of other passengers laid about, syncopate into a restless dream. You see foxgloves growing along the stone walkway to an ornate house on a hill. <img src="images/dreamHouse.jpg" alt="The Uppsala House." height="381" width="500" /> Your chest feels heavy as you open the front door, and step inside. You're inside your father in law's old house in Uppsala. [['I never did finish anything back then.']] </p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/shipInterior.jpg" alt="Inside the Brainerd"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Lila, your fiancée at the time, is sitting in the hallway. Tears well in her eyes, though she strives to hold them back as she reads one of the Gösta Berling novels. Her favorite. Through the doorway, your suitcase is open and full on the bed. <img src="images/lila.jpg" alt="Lila." height="800" width="530" /> [[Talk to Lila.]] [[Go into the bedroom, and shut the suitcase.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You quickly pack your meager belongings - namely an empty wallet, notepad and pens, and three changes of clothes - and run down to the wharf with little time to spare. Your vessel looks like a poorly converted coal barge, but you've no time to complain as the last call rings out. You flash your ticket to the first mate, a short and dirty fellow, and run up the gangplank. Less than five minutes have gone by before the gangplank is hauled up, the ropes are cast on board, and the S.S. Brainerd is underway. You look at your ticket, really studying it in detail for the first time. There is a cabin number on it. [[Go check out your cabin.]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Seattle_1897.JPG" alt="Down at the Wharf"/> </div><div class="textBox"> <p>Walking further down the hallway, you approach her. Bracing yourself on her chair post, you kneel down to speak to her. <img src="images/lila.jpg" alt="Lila." height="800" width="530" /> [["I have to go now."]] [["Come with me."]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"> <p>You shut the suitcase, and pick it up. It's heavy. You walk out the doorway of the bedroom, and are somewhere very different now. <img src="images/Scollay_Square_Brattle_Loop_platform_2.png" alt="Seattle Train Platform." height="335" width="568" /> You're on the platform of the Seattle train station. This was your commute when you worked at the Seattle Republican. Sanders, your former plagiarizing co-worker, is standing beside you smoking a cigarette. The smoke wafts into your eyes. He has the same arrogant smirk you remember. This is the bastard who stole your work and passed it off as his own. [[Punch him in the gut.]] [[Extend a handshake.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"> <p>Lila ceases her sobbing, and lowers her hands to her lap. The stare she gives you says 'I know you're not coming back.' But she only says, "You will be a famous journalist." <img src="images/lila.jpg" alt="Lila." height="800" width="530" /> With that, she walks into the bedroom. Your open suitcase is hurled out shortly after, its contents spilling out on the floor. Atop the heap of your belongings, you see your heart-shaped locket. [[Pick up the locket.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Lila doesn't seem to understand your request. She rises out of her seat sharply, standing over you. She says: "What's the matter dear? Can I get you anything?" <img src="images/lila.jpg" alt="Lila." height="800" width="530" /> Her brow is crinkled with worry. She is not crying anymore. Her hands go to your throat. She lifts you off the floor. You gasp for breath, but no air comes. She repeats herself. "What is wrong? Is it stress from work?" You try to raise your arms to stop her, but nothing registers within your muscles. You can't even writhe or contort your face in pain. You are held as a ragdoll. You need air. "Please don't fret about your work while you are home with me." "Let's go lay down," she says as she releases you. You fall to the floor, and then through it. Blackness envelopes you. [['It is hot!' Wake up.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You reach for the locket. Steam begins to shoot out of it. Lots of steam. [['It is hot!' Wake up.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"><p>A sharp jet of steam is blasting over you from a vent in the wall. You roll off the hay bales in a half-awake stupor, slamming onto the wooden floor of the hold. The first mate runs down and shouts to everyone in a callous tone: "Sorry folks; we're running her off some bad coal. Sudden lurches will be sporadic." He dutifully hurries back above deck. You wipe a spot of blood from your lip, and lay back on the bales - head away from the vent this time. Your watch says it is 5 PM. 'There is still a long way to go.' You are lulled back into a dreamless sleep. [[Awake on the fifth day.]]</p> </div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/shipInterior.jpg" alt="Inside the Brainerd"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Your swing feels slow - you clench your fist tight, but it bounces off Sanders' stomach. He chortles his weasly laugh. "Oh Sven. That's enough now." You hit him again, but this too is completely ineffective. It's as though your fist is made of cotton. Sanders takes a prolonged drag off his cigarette. "I'd be angry too if I blew the biggest story of the decade. Don't fret though, I'll toast to your invaluable contribution with Pulitzer." He nods past your shoulder. "Train's here." You turn around and see he's right - you didn't even hear it coming. The locomotive exudes a cloud of steam that billows over your head. <img src="images/train.jpg" alt="Seattle Train Platform." height="760" width="608" /> [['It is hot!' Wake up.]] </p> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You stand up straight, and reach out an open hand with all the respect you can muster for the man who plagiarized the story that would have launched your career in journalism. The smirk fades from his face. He looks at your hand warily. Then he looks you in the eye, flicking the ash from his cigarette. The smirk reforms on his round face as he clasps your hand with his, and shakes vigorously. The whistle of a train can be heard. "There's a good sport," he finally says. The rumble of the train grows louder. You glance down the tracks and see it - still far away, but moving impossibly fast towards the platform. Then you are falling. Sanders has pushed you onto the tracks. <img src="images/train.jpg" alt="Seattle Train Platform." height="760" width="608" /> You try to get to your feet, but the train is moving faster. [['It is hot!' Wake up.]] </p> </div><h2>Part 2: The Last Frontier</h2> <div class="textBox"><p>Five days at sea have passed slowly and without event, save for the briefest of stops in Juneau and other unknown ports as you slept. You step down the gangplank of the Brainerd onto Skaguay's [(color:#6B0000)[**largest dock.**]]<juneauWharf| (click: ?juneauWharf)[It was referred to as the Juneau Wharf by the first mate.] You check your watch.

Within, a thin and grave-looking individual is scribbling letters hastily at the largest of three desks. "Come in greenhorn," he says without enthusiasm. "I'm J. Allen Hornsby, chief correspondent. I'll make coffee and fill you in on the details." [[Take a seat.]]</p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/deSucca.jpg" alt="The Daily Alaskan Newsroom"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>You settle into a rickety wooden chair beside Hornsby's desk. He pours black coffee into a tin cup, then adds a splash of cream before handing it to you. "Thank you sir," you say. You sip it tiredly. It is awful-tasting, but you successfully hide your disgust. There's an uncomfortable pause as he looks you up and down unabashedly, then stares you directly in the eyes. Finally, he speaks. "Do you know why I hired you, greenhorn?" [["Because of my stellar portfolio?"]] [["No, sir."]] [["My name is Atli Toren.

"Are you listening, Toren?" You look up quickly to nod affirmatively, but Hornsby appears unconvinced. His brow furrows. "You should play up the conflicts between Jeff Smith and his enemies in your writing, because it sells papers. Think of every article you write as a building block of Jeff Smith's legacy. And in turn, they'll be building blocks of your own career." Finishing his coffee in a long swill, Hornsby plants the empty mug on his desk. "Since you weren't paying attention before, I've left a map and some guidelines on your desk. You should *really* give it a look over before bed." He throws on his coat and opens the door to leave. Over the howling wind pouring in the doorway, he says, "Bunk is upstairs. Good luck tomorrow." Then he leaves, and the tiny building is silent.

And in turn, they'll be building blocks of your own career." Finishing his coffee in one last swill, Hornsby plants the empty mug on his desk. "I'm going home.

Smith looks back as he opens the door to leave. "You and the rest of the Safety Committee just make sure nothing happens to Fay between now and Wednesday, Frank.

Has to be Soapy. He's screaming at them. As you draw closer, you recognize some of the other men as Tanner and Reid. With them is an imposing, older gentleman with his hands on his hips, and a badge on. He is speaking to Soapy in a stern, but comparatively calm voice. "You're kidding yourself, Smith," he says. "This is the only way for you and your men to go without being arrested and thrown in jail. You give the gold back - all of it - and you give up the men who stole it. Then the rest of you get the hell out of here on the next boat tomorrow." Soapy talks lower this time. His words are slightly slurred. "I've heard your terms, Commissioner. And I've nothing new to say. Go ahead and declare me in with the thieves - they're my men, and I'll stick by them." You realize he's drunk. Soapy turns and glares at you just long enough to freeze your blood before retreating back within his parlor, slamming the door behind him again as he does so. Si shrugs. "At least we tried, Charles," he says to the gentleman with the badge on. Si then waves for you to join. "We're heading to Sylvester Hall Atli. There's nothing left to do here."

You recognize eight members of the 101, including Frank Reid, are armed and standing behind them. "Good afternoon Commissioner," Soapy says politely. "I'd expected you sooner - and to be with the Deputy Marshal." <img src='images/Sehlbrede2.jpg' alt='Commissioner Sehlbrede.' height='257' width='180'/> Commissioner Charles Sehlbrede is an imposing figure, who looks as no-nonsense as his reputation holds. Contrasting with the matte black coat he wears, his tin badge gleams in the rays cast through clouds above. His Colt Single-Action Army is visible in its holster at his waist. "The Deputy Marshal is under house arrest for negligence of duty," Sehlbrede says. "I'm surprised you didn't already know that, Jeff. What with all the strings you pull around here." Soapy stands straight and faces Sehlbrede squarely. "Well, get on with what you've come to say then," Jeff says impatiently. "This is the end of the line for you and your crew in Skaguay, Jeff. You can hand over the men responsible for the robbery - I know there's three of them - and *all* of the gold they took - I know that amount too. Then the rest of you can get on the next boat out of town in the morning, and stay out of jail." You look at Si, who's staring calmly at Soapy. He has his rifle down by his waist. Frank Reid doesn't appear to have a weapon on him, as far as you can tell. Sehlbrede continues. "The second way you can leave, is by continuing this farce. In which case we'll forcibly arrest all of you, retrieve the stolen gold, and let a judge in Sitka sort you all out." Soapy retorts with an unnerving quickness. "There's a third way too, isn't there." Sehlbrede's features darken at this. "I don't know what way you're thinking of. But the only other one I can imagine is violent, and ends with you and any other resistance in a pine box." Soapy glances at the armed crew behind Sehlbrede. Then he squints at Sehlbrede. "You do what you feel then, Commissioner. Throw me in with the thieves - I'm sticking by my men." He turns and walks back inside. Sehlbrede and the armed ad hoc police force ignore you, and walk off as one body, muttering their omens. In your heart, you feel like you just witnessed Soapy signing his own death warrant.

Sehlbrede gave Soapy the ultimatum everyone expected - give up the thieves, give up the gold, and get out - or be forced out by an ad hoc police force." data-bio-image="<img src='images/Sehlbrede2.jpg' alt='Commissioner Sehlbrede.' height='257' width='180'/>">Notepad</button> <div class="bios-window" style="display: none"></div> </p></div> <div id="bg"> <img src="images/Skagway-1898.jpg"/> </div><div class="textBox"><p>Soapy curses and flips a chair as he continues to storm to the back room of the Parlor, a place he doesn't allow most people. You've never been back there yourself. "You want your answers and your drink, you'd best get in here," Jeff shouts. "And close the door behind you." You walk in and shut the door as he's asked. The room is empty except for a small shelf, a roll-top desk that is closed, and a small table and two chairs. Soapy grabs a bottle from the shelf and noisily slides a chair out to sit. It's whiskey. He pours a tall glass for himself, nearly to the point of spilling over. Then he turns and reaches over his shoulder to pull another glass off the shelf. He places it and the liquor in front of you. "Make yourself a drink," he says.

An ethereal thrush song comes in the window, gently breaking the silence. A clock ticks dependably out in the main room of the parlor. Soapy says nothing for nearly a minute. Just as you utter the first syllable of a question, he slams the table violently with his fist. Whiskey sloshes out of both glasses and pools on the table. "God *damn* it. Who in the hell do they think they are, Atli?" He wipes his chin and takes another long sip of whiskey. You meekly sip your own whiskey.

He was holding a sack of gold, and waving it around like a fool." He takes another sip of whiskey. "Then, God help them, they stole the gold from their mark. No sleight of hand, no eloquence, nothing - they just grabbed the man's gold and ran. That's not something I taught them. We are not common thieves, Atli. Their error was grievous. Hell, I'd half a mind to give the man back part of his money, until he went hollering all over town about what had happened.

"If Major Strong has caught an inkling of anything against me, he's sure to throw it in his damned Skaguay Newspaper. I need you and your boss to run a counter-article about this mistake Atli. Tell the readers that Stewart lost the gold in a fair game of cards." Soapy's words are starting to slur. "Tell them - tell them who this Stewart really is.

You push it from your mind, looking out to the wharf, now half a block away. The procession of citizens ahead nearly fills the entire 16-foot width of the wharf. "Well, this is going to be interesting," you say. "That's one way of putting it," Tom says. "I'd say it's the end of an era for this town." You nod in agreement. "I'm just glad Soapy isn't here to see this," you say.

Soapy barely looks at you, continuing his stride. "Don't try to stop me," he says. He's even more drunk than before. He screams. "I've been thrown out of three frontiers, and I won't get thrown out of a fourth." You attempt to get closer to him, but a larger member of his entourage knocks you down to the wooden deck of the wharf. You get up and try to shout to Soapy again. "Jeff, please wait!" About thirty feet down the wharf, Soapy and his men charge past Si Tanner, who is unarmed. "Stop!" Si shouts. "No weapons allowed, you hear?" Soapy only shouts curses in reply. "Stay outta my way, you sons of bitches." Si starts after the Soap Gang, and motions to another man to follow.

Reid raises his left arm, blocking the strike and grabbing Soapy's rifle. Reid makes a quick movement with his free hand to his own waist - he's drawn a revolver from his coat! He points it at Soapy's stomach, but no shot is heard. There is a fast, bizarre motion between the two dark figures. In their struggle, Soapy wrests his rifle from Reid. The barrel falls level with his waist. Frank's pained face is brilliantly illuminated in strobe as the sound of shots split the air. They come in such rapid succession that they overlap - were there five? Seven? You cannot tell. Both men fall to the deck. It all happened in a few seconds. Reid is writhing on the ground face-down, while Soapy lies on his back clutching his arm in pain. Reid's assistant guard, who has recoiled to the edge of the wharf, now runs over to Soapy. He leans over and pulls Soapy's rifle from his hands. Then he points it straight down at Soapy's chest, taking aim. Soapy shouts, fear welling in his voice. "My *God*, don't shoot!" The Soap Gang rush forward to aid their fallen leader. A single crack reverberates out across the fjord. Soapy's arms fall from their protest, limp to the deck. Soapy's killer wheels his rifle up to the rushing Soap Gang. "Go on then, you plonkers!" he shouts in a thick Irish accent. "Unless you want to die too!" The Soap Gang pause only a moment, then turn tail and run past you.
