Dates: April 1936
Player Characters: The Silver Ghost
After getting his release through the intercessions of a bribed judge and a good lawyer, Evan Sabre has departed San Francisco and is attempting to supplant Patrick Nunzio as the underworld leader of Seattle. Currently, his plan involves the freighter Purple Emperor, which has smuggled a cargo of opium into Seattle and is preparing to exchange it for a cargo of kidnapped women. Sabre plans to sell the opium and use it as a stake to continue his criminal business.
Nearly twenty-five years on, there is little of this adventure that I remember directly, but one image does stick in my mind: that of the Silver Ghost, moving stealthily along the docks, the bulk of the cargo ship beside him as he prepares to slip aboard and begin making some criminals’ lives really, really miserable.
