Welcome to Brimstone, partner!
In a less traveled northeast corner of the Territory of New Mexico, surrounded on all sides by the expansive Asphodel Meadows and framed by the Ptolomea Mountains, its the bustling boomtown of Brimstone (population 2,337). Rotten with drunkards, cutthroats, and Hell-manufactured heathens all drawn there to escape the accidental possibility of redemption, this little-burg-that-shouldn’t often becomes the final resting place for the lost. Visitors to Brimstone are largely left alone to their own devices and desires, but occasionally the rutted, unpaved streets run red with the blood of those who have crossed paths with the wrong kind of ornery hombres who don’t suffer fools gladly. For some, it’s a helluva lot easier to resolve a dispute with a dose of hot lead than a long, drawn-out debate, and the local undertakers are never starved for business.
Brimstone is loosely modeled after modern day Clayton, New Mexico in Union County. Unlike Clayton, Brimstone is much larger. With the discovery of ghost rock in close proximity its rail business is booming. Much like Clayton was in the 1800s, Brimstone is also a busy railroad and livestock town with many ranches in and near the town.
