I was just wondering if the characters in the game are based off of the real magnificent seven, and does anyone know if Calamity Jane was apart of the magnificent seven?
Thanks!

As I understand it, The Magnificent Seven is a movie which is based on a Japanese move (book?) titled the Seven Samurai. I am not sure there was ever a group in real life that was called the Magnificent Seven.

There was also a Western movie Called The Magnificent Seven made in 1960. That plays a role in the jokes and nods too.

What I know is that buffalo Bill was a real guy that killed a lot of buffalo. This magnificent seven could be a spoof of the seven samurai.

This is probably best answered by Blind Mew.

In the telling of the story of the Magnificent Seven, several things become clear:

1) Wyatt Chirp was shot down at some point after bringing peace to the area. The Magnificent Seven split up shortly thereafter.
2) Somehow, a Peacemaker was involved (discovered during the quest to get one for Avery)
3) Buffalo Bill blames Duck Holiday for the death of Wyatt Chirp.

Several possibilities:

a) Duck Holiday had a Peacemaker and gambled it away. That Peacemaker was then used to kill Wyatt.
b) Duck Holiday let it slip that Wyatt Chirp had a Peacemaker, and the people he let it slip to then gunned down Wyatt to obtain it.

The fact that none of the other four blame Duck Holiday says that his involvement was second hand and probably an accident.

So, will we find out the whole story, or is there a piece of the story I forgot to add in, and if so, when are we told that?

The Magnificent Seven was a western film. The characters in the game are not from the movie, but are real life cowboys. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were a famous sherif and deputy. Calamity Jane Canary fought Native Americans, and Wild Bill Hickok had very crazy things happen in his life. Billy the Kid was a famous outlaw, and finally Buffalo Bill was a show performer and soldier.
