Sam Bass

Sam Bass was a man with a dream, albeit an illegal one! He rode about the state of Texas, robbing banks and sending the law on wild goose chases. He must have been a convincing guy, because he led such people as Scribe�s own relative Seaborn Barnes in his mission to separate Texas bankers from their money. Sam and his boys also hit up trains and stagecoaches on the side, but as you can see from the tale of Seaborn Barnes, Bass didn�t make it past Round Rock.
