We rise early in the morning knowing this will be a fateful day. Thaddeus presses a potion into the hand of each party member saying to drink it when we find the dragon. It will help fortify you for the battle head.
At the blacksmith shop, Roland is finishing the assembly of an 8 foot tall iron man with a ghost rock boiler. It emits a scream as the boiler comes to life, the robot stands and looks at Roland for a command. At this point there is a rumbling in the town, and the skies start to darken.
Meanwhile back at the cabin we notice the weather is turning. It is getting darker and cold. Fossar notices a small girl right outside of the cabin. She asks to see Maverick. She introduces herself as Sally and says we helped her family when we first got into town. She says she thinks we are heroes and she needs our help. She says her mother is ill and the doctor is busy. Thaddeus agrees to go with her. Maverick goes as well.
As we leave it feels like an earthquake. We see a huge tendril burst out of the ground by the horses. It grabs a horse and decapitates it. The other horses runn oft (O Brother Where Art Thou), and three zombies appear from the hole the tentacle made.
Jimmy flies out of the cabin and attacks a zombie. He slays it with his tomahawks. Maverick shoots the tentacle and it falls and shrinks back into the ground. Thaddeus throws a potion that explodes and shakes the zombies. Fossar engages them in lively conversation. They respond that they are here to destroy, which the posse can’t understand but somehow Fossar can. He attacks one of them and wounds it. The zombie swings and misses. The girl cowers in fear, and starts to ride away.
Another tentacle and two more zombies appear. We also hear the outhouse break apart. Lucille jumps on a horse and get ready to ride. Fossar kills one zombie but then his shovel flies out of his hand. Jimmy kills the last zombie near the cabin, but we have more to deal with. Maverick shoots the tentacle to the south and kills it. The zombies close with him but they miss him. Thaddeus shoots another.
Maverick takes out the the remaining zombies. We all jump on horses and ride for town, except for Lucille who rides north. Before she leaves she gives a slip of paper to Maverick. We don’t see her anymore.
Once in town we goes to the girl’s house and find her mother. Thaddeus treats her with his medical knowledge. Maverick goes to talk to the blacksmith and sees the automaton.
At that moment, more tentacles and skeletons break out in the town. Roland commands the automaton to attack with its buzzsaw and flamethrower. They attack and bind several party members. Bat Masterson and the Russian engage but have no success. Fossar dispatches a tentacle. Jimmy tomahawks a zombie. Thaddeus entangles a tentacle and zombie. Maverick finishes off the tentacle and the zombie. The party that is left regroups and talks. Maverick and Thaddeus decide to head out of town and meet up with Lucille, who gave Maverick the location she was fleeing to, somewhere in Saskatchewan. Jimmy goes to assist the Dust Boys and they head out of town as well. Fossar heads to the mine alone.
We see a plume of black smoke rising from the area that was Paradise Falls. The townspeople are never seen or heard from again. Fossar’s fate is unknown.
