On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

After his family is killed by outlaws, Rodney is raised by a kindly Indian. When he is grown, the Indian tells him that it is time to learn about his own people and sends the boy down to the wagon train. However, Rod sees and hears things which don't lead him to look kindly on the travelers. That is, until he sees Mandy. So, unknown to the wagon train, he leaves things in exchange for interesting items, not knowing that two unscrupulous crooks are planning on framing him for their crimes.
