Long before the dawn of men...
Strife was already a major
component of life.
Wherever a creature shared a piece
of land with another...
It was just a matter of time ....
Until a struggle full resources
would ensue you.
Men was no different. Showcasing a
perverse fascination with violence.
Men and civilization brought forth more
innovative ways of taking human lives.

Or making love.
Where the latter 2 are quite
limited in scale...
Man has gone beyond imagination...
With his capacity to destroy life.
With one push of a button.
Between uncontrolled crime in the
And escalating war in the
It was all just a matter of time.
From the ashes a new world was
Men's unstoppable appetite for
Must be contained.
A ban on all firearms was strictly

The gun gave way to the sword.
Leaving the authorities to carry
the hope of their nations...
On a tip of a spear...

Personified in our case...
With a wood cutter.
Nicola is his name.
And this is his town, his land.
The God forsaken place where our
And as many ways as there are of
killing a man...

Welcome to our show, the town's
midnight main event.
The occasional challenges are
On one side in the gray suit, red
hat, is Killer # 2.
Representing the colossal

the proletarian league of defense...
And on the far side, in menacing

On the contenders of the hour...
Killer # 2.

'Cos we're here to challenge Nicola's
reign in the name of the people!
So any gang in the province has a chance to
challenge The Woodcutter and take the town.
But as the leader of the biggest
And the cold often exceeds the
By sending only 1 killer to defend
You can roll the dice and die with
your men or...
Take the safe bat and come back to
work for Nicola.
All this will be forgotten.
Even the buffoon part.
You want me to work for a

Killer # 1?
What should we do with him?
Kill them all.
Another gang, another night,
And when will the wind bring a real challenge?
Ask the most powerful man east of the Atlantic.
Rest assured, his wish will be
But although our villain is constantly
challenged in his own quarters...
It is quite unlikely that his world
order will be shaken from within.
An outside intervention is needed.
An intervention brought about by
some means of transportation...
Many a time... a train.
