This is the final episode of season two. We will be taking a break after this season to rest, recuperate, and celebrate an entire year of Sounds like Crowes! We will return in early February. This wednesday november 7th marks one year from the release of our first episode. Amelia from the Character Creation Cast podcast skyped in to talk about year one, and ask us some questions you folks sent in.
It’s night still, outside of tombstone, by that old hangin’ tree. The Crowe boys have hung their ma’s killer. Ain’t done it without cost though. Everyone’s got a price. Even the judge.
The Crowes finish their fight with the judge. How will they survive his judgement?
A mother’s love goes a long way. It pushes folk to do things they wouldn’t otherwise. Forces brothers into a murder. Ain’t the right name for ‘em? The boys have found their revenge. Put their momma’s killer face down in the Arizona desert. All that’s left is to fight whatever the hell the judge was holding back. The hangin’ judge don’t wanna be hanged. Even the spirits of his hateful guns ain’t down for the count. He casts a long shadow, shadows of rabid dogs and hellish fowl. The Crowes ain’t done yet.
(Also yeah, that ain't how aiding someone's action works in savage worlds.)
An interlude, a chat, a ritual. Confessions. Blood brothers at last.
Caleb and Isaac sit fireside with Ben from Pod of Love to talk about bringing his experience as a priest into the weird west, and how to make romance in RPGs a rewarding experience.
Please consider supporting this great project.
The Crowe boys are back together in Tombstone! Following up on their lead to find their Ma's killer.
Where we left off last time, was at a bar in the middle of who-gives-a-fuck Arizona, Harper has been tracked down by two folks. One: Anne, a woman hell-bent on avenging her brother’s death, and Two: Harper’s brother. Hell-aided, come to save Daisy Crowe

The Crowe boys are finally healed up, shopped up, not liquored up, and all up to get it done. Will they buckle up and get this thing done? Bottoms up, and paws up, let's find out.
Isaac's twitter handle is still missing from my outtro. He's @AbelTheCrowe
Hey folks! First up, there's an issue with Google Play not processing our latest episodes. I've contacted google support, but I've tried all I can on my side, so it's up to them to fix it asap unfortunately. If we can't get the issue resolved in a week, I'll try to send out another update.
Secondly, our fan gun historian has thankfully provided us with more info on the guns featured in the last episode. Check out this thread of tweets for more info on what Abel bought.
The Crowes learn more about the enemy of their friend, and perhaps even gain a new ally. Dragoon pistol: https://www.collegehillarsenal.com/shop/product.php?productid=1755

The Crowe Bros mosey towards tombstone. The wounds of war scar the living. Orson Sharpe finds his place in his new pack. The brothers indulge in their newfound moral freedom.
It's a fight for survival, both for their brother and for themselves as the Crowe's continue into the pines.
If you're curious about "The monsters that kill with their eyes", here's some references. I did modify them from traditional folklore to interact with Thaddeus's phobia. Plus, it seemed out of place for things to shoot lightning out of their eyes in Sounds Like Crowes.

The most fascinating thing I found while researching the Navajo is their creation legends. This link also contains images of their sand paintings they use for healing songs.
The Coming of Monsters:
"In the Third World, there was a time when men and women had lived apart for a long time. During that time, some women had used animal horns or long stones or bird feathers for sex. Now, in the Fourth World, some of those women were pregnant. One woman who had used an antelope horn gave birth to a child with no head. The people held a council and decided that this baby would be abandoned. It was left to die in a gully. But it lived and grew to become Déélgééd, the Horned Monster.
A woman who had used an eagle's feather for sex gave birth to a round, headless child with feathered shoulders. A council was held, and it was decided that this baby too should be abandoned. It was left in an alkali pit. But it lived, and grew to become Tsé Nináhálééh, Monster Eagle. It made its home on Tséteʼiská, a peak beyond La Plata Mountains.
A woman who had used an elongated stone for sex gave birth to a headless child with hard skin and a pointed neck. The people met in council and decided that this baby should be abandoned in a fissure in a cliff. They placed the child and closed the fissure with rocks. But the child lived and grew to become Tsé dah Hódziiłtáłii, The Monster Who Kicks People Down the Cliff. It made its home at a place called Knol ghi nee, beyond the Carrizos Mountains.
A woman who had skinned a sour cactus and used it for sex gave birth to twins, headless creatures with no limbs. They had two depressions at the top that looked like eyes. The people gathered and decided that these infants had to be abandoned. They threw them as far as they could. But the twins found shelter in brush and survived. They grew to become Binááʼ yee Aghání, the Monsters That Kill with Their Eyes.
One monster came about in a different way. A woman named Loose Running Woman went off alone in the direction of the sunrise. After defecating, she used a smooth pebble from the river to clean herself. She placed the warm stone in her genitals just as Jóhonaaʼéí, the Sun, rose above the horizon. Seeing this, the Sun sent a ray into her. In only nine days she gave birth to a large child. Having no husband, and not knowing who the father of the child was, she abandoned the child in a rocky place. But Jóhonaaʼéí knew that the baby was his, and he protected it from afar but never visited it. The child grew to be large and powerful and very angry. It was called Yéʼiitsoh, Big Giant, by the people.
The monsters hid along paths, and killed and devoured travelers. They killed many people, and the people began to live in fear."
The Crowe boys enter an unnatural forest, in the unlikely hope that their brother's salvation may lie within.
The Crowe boys must deal with a rising threat, as their journey through the Arizona night takes them ever closer to Tombstone.
