Cheyenne warriors are riding near the Platte River in central Nebraska, an area known to be Pawnee country. The Society of Black Sun Shields patrols the iron tracks of the railroad to see if there are signs of any bluecoats crossing on to Cheyenne country. The society shields were designed after a recent eclipse, thus giving power to the war shield wearers.
