They were dueling Doolin-Dalton / High or low it was the same / Easy money and faithless women / Red eye whiskey for the pain.

Go down Bill Dalton, it must be God's will / Two brothers lying dead in Coffeyville / Two voices call you from where they stood / Lay down your law books now, they're no damn good.

Better keep on moving Doolin-Dalton / Till your shadow sets you free / If you're fast and if you're lucky / you will never see that hanging tree.

With a pistol in each hand, your horse's hooves drumming beneath you, the incessant bangs and whizzes of gunshots all around you, the shouts of angry men and the screams of the injured and dying ringing in your ears you roam the towns, plains and wilderness of the American Old West with your fellow outlaws: the daring Dalton boys, the King of the Oklahoma Outlaws Bill Doolin and all the other members of The Wild Bunch. Your mission is to get rich or die trying and if you are very clever and very lucky you might just live to enjoy your ill-gotten gains; if not... a weather-beaten cross in a dusty cemetery and your rusting pistol in a 21st century museum next to an old black and white photo of a bullet-riddled body will be your fate!

Author's Note: Following the (for me) surprisingly positive feedback on The James Gang I've decided to write the next story I had planned in that series, putting The CYS Challenge and Magellan 5 on hold for now. With a new cast of larger-than-life characters, more epic gunfights and daring robberies like it's predecessor this is the sort of story too unbelievable for fiction and absolutely incredible for being true! I sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it :)

Great game although as an outlaw group the Doolin-Dalton gang was pretty feeble compared to the successes of the James-Younger gang.

I know I sound greedy, but I need a third American Outlaws. Love this.

(And probably a few more)

American Outlaws: The James Gang was one of the first stories I read on this site and I'm glad it got a sequel. It was just as fun as the first time to go through the history of famous American outlaws. Keep up the good work, Will.

I don't have any feedback to give, because I'm half awake and running off of caffeine, but you should really look into making a longer story game along. I think you'd be really successful with it.

Just like the James Gang, this was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed this and would like to see more of your work as soon as possible.

As a sidenote, I would like to praise your work on ''Hunting The Ripper'' too. That storygame was simply outstanding, in many, many ways.

When I opened the Newly created Storygame Page and saw the New American Outlaws Story, I was overjoyed and tough Christmas came early this Year. I read through the Story in one go and I kinda got in an argument with my boss because I should be working ( You're supposed to Work at your Job... Fascinating right?)
American Outlaws: The Wild Bunch is an enthralling read and a very enjoyable and well written Story.
But (the big 'but' everything has) I liked the First one a little bit better. This story lacked The ultimate strategy of "shoot first,ask later" of The James Gang. Now it fells like you are coward who hides, turns tail and runs all the Time.

I Rate 7/8
I enjoined this Story and I recommend it to anyone, despite genre preference.

PS: I anyone cares

This was incredible, Will! This is an amazing piece of work that obviously took time and effort. Good work. 7/8
