LAWMAN part 2

The Wyatt Earp Adventures

"Wyatt Earp was a man of action. He was born, reared, and lived in an environment which held words and theories of small account, in which sheer survival often, and eminence invariably, might be achieved through deeds alone. Withal, Wyatt Earp was a thinking man, whose mental processes were as quick, as direct, as unflustered by circumstance and as effective as the actions they inspired."

part I

1875 Dodge City Kansas welcomed the return of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. The towns previous sheriff was shot dead in the back by a trio of cowardly thugs named Jebediah McCoy and his brothers Alton and Thompson. So the honorable Mayor "Mad Dog" Kelley sent for the "Hero of the West" by telegram to clean up the city. Currently Dodge is overrun by a criminal group of horse thieves, cattle rustlers, murderers, and renegade Indians called The Gatling Gang. Their leader is Henry Gatling, nicknamed "Father Henry" due to his one-time failed pursuit of priesthood. His two main captains, Ben Abraham and Cornelius "Sleepy" Abraham manage the gang hideout bar on the outside of town. The Gatling family was one of the wealthiest Texas cattle ranchers in the territory, until Henry's older brother Earl Gatling murdered their parents for the inheritance. Since Earl was convicted then sent to jail, Henry has taken control of the family empire, and driven its "good name" into the ground by hiring outlaws of the worse sort. The Mayor has ordered his deputies to arrest any gang members on sight for crimes including murder, stealing, rape, and smuggling Longhorn Cattle illegally into Kansas just to name a few. So Henry has sent Jeb and his brothers Alton and Thompson, along with a Comanche Indian nick-named Fitz, to kidnap the Mayor and kill Wyatt and any who aid him...such as a beautiful new love interest named Madison "Maddie", and her kind warm-hearted parents
Theodore "Doc" and Nancy "Mama" Cartwright.

part II

Doc, Mama, and Madison greet Wyatt at their home in town, As Jeb, Thompson, and Fitz stalk then terrorize the family after Wyatt leaves. Kidnapped Mayor Kelley is beaten and tortured in his own mansion by Ben, Cornelius, and Henry for hiring Wyatt. In the aftermath, a funeral, a voyage north, and a moment of justice, unfolds.

Okay... Trying to be fair as well as frank... And admittedly, I'm not a "qualified expert"...
At first, and with some "reading in" it looks like you've researched a bit. Where about's this part of the story? Frankly puzzled... on several levels... So if you have approximate years and territories to cross, I can probably find them... (unless you have a specific source, and I can likely take it apart for you) - (LOL)...
First of all, Wyatt, specifically, was known for a maneuver called the "buffalo", a special type of pistol whip[ping technique, used to quickly, and relatively harmlessly (at the time) send opposition to the ground. It would generally involve inserting a forefinger through the trigger guard with the rest of the hand along the barrel of a "Colt Peacemaker" (pride of the Earp collection at the time) and crashing the gun (or mechanism - as some called it _ across the side of the "Victim's" head)... It was regarded as "relatively harmless" since it didn't usually result in the victim dying from his wound, but rendered him (or her) unconscious. Wyatt was actually fairly well known for the move, even occasionally receiving backlash over it in any town he publicly patrolled, including Dodge...
His major montra, and claim to fame was to, "take your time in a hurry"... as regards to gunfighting in general. He didn't recommend wasting any time when shooting iron(s) came out, because it was a matter of life and death, not simply a boyish version of a tea party. However, it wasn't either appropriate or beneficial to spend rounds wastefully as you generally had only five in a single gun.
Another small known factor, for Dear Wyatt :
He had at one time carried six rounds in his weapon, but once as he sat at a table in a saloon. the gun slipped from its holster and blew a hole in the wall. No one was injurred, but Wyatt healthily decided to load on five in his side-arm, and keep the "hammer" on an empty chamber in case of another such incident.
Also, since an early on situation from his depression over his first chosen wife's death and a deep trauma regarding that, he was a "born-again-straight-edge" as far as others ever regarded him after... Just in case you were thinking of twisting his story...
Not to say you can't take a little poetic license! At the same time, your comments seem too well researched to completely disregard history, and while I might not remember the sources "riight off the top of my head" so to say, I can help you look a little further on your way. It's a fine tale to tell...
I'd like to see you top the charts with a tale straight from the old west (the wild west) to a man who was sitting in as a technical director in HOLLYWOOD for the latter years of his life!
You weren't kidding about Wyatt Earp being a man of action (and activity)... BUT you really ought to take you time and taqke the journey to see and relive the man he really was!

Thnx 4 watchn

"am limited to the recreation of many Wyatt ami,ations....but I'm shooting LAWMAN 3 and I'll add in more fist fighting and maybe a pistol whip or 2

animation was pretty rough, but ok for the kind of animation it was. There are a lot of things that didn't make since about this for instance who was that young woman in the red dress and what's her relationship to the old couple at first I thought she was their doughtier or their grand-doughtier, but I saw the old man proposing to the old woman and wasn't sure what she was anymore. What ever happened to the young woman's body did they find it in the kitchen ever? There are to many blank images between the sense plus the music changes too suddenly when this happens. The music itself is pretty good, but I think you should try a little bit harder to make your own music.

There was a lot wrong with this story, but I think you could fix this if you broke this up into smaller episodes this way you can work on improving these errors.
