Clipped in the City

Here, once again, are a few pictures from various periodicals published in the City, and their accompaning headlines:

ROGUE AUTOMATON MENACES CITY
A novelty automaton from a boardwalk attraction inexplicably began to rob patrons at gunpoint.  Where the automaton got the gun has yet to be discovered.

ARMED GIANT ON CRIME SPREE IN FREEDONIA
Across the plains of central Freedonia, authorities are chasing an armored giant (likely a hillybilly giant, but possible a golem) responisble for the robbery of several banks and at least one train.

SORCERER PREFERS BLONDES
A cadre of adventures rescued women kidnapped by a rogue thaumaturge before he could preform the ritual he presumably had planned.  Whatever their original hair color and style, all the women had been magical transformed to long-tressed, platinum blondes.  The women were unharmed by their fifteen hour ordeal, and in fact evidenced little emotion due to mesmerism.

The world is a much better place if slack-jawed hillbilly giants roam the backwoods. :)

Ha! It's nice to see Ned Kelly reincarnated as a hillbilly giant.

@Johnathan - Glad I can be of service.

@ze bulette - Me too. There a lot like chimpanzees with guns in that respect.

@Christian - We can only hope, my friend.

@Tom - I've looking for the oppurtunity to use that picture of that infamous antipodean for a long time.

I once (or twice) ran games of a Boot Hill kitbash that featured things like Native American Shamans with real magic and the Fearsome Critters of Lumberjack tales.

Helmet wearing, gun-totting, hillbilly giants would fit right in.
