During a time when the American frontier was still young, a prosperous silver strike in the Arizona territory brought about the city of Tombstone. Everyone knows the stories and the history of the "Old West". What they do not know is the entire story. The non Human communities were not friendly back then. The term "The Wild West" was coined because of the constant conflict between Werewolf, Druid and Vampire. The poor Humans were simply caught up in the crossfire of the times. This is the story of the West that few people hear. The stories of the struggles, shameful acts and triumphs of the Veiled West.
