So, who's the bad guy here?

So, the Native American looking guy was trying to get the people of Butcher's Creek to leave because the water was poisoned. He says that the mining company only found lead and arsenic and it was his job to get the people to leave. So, the lead and arsenic was poisoning the water? The mining company accidentally released it into the water? So Arthur actually harmed those people by getting rid of the Native?

Or did that Native guy add some different poison? I don't really understand what the deal is here.
Your sig is extreme cringe by the way. Very embarrassing. -Colossus-X

I think he was trying to rip them off of their land with that contract at the end

the guy pretending to be an indian works for the mining company

he was trying to trick the butcher's creek people in to signing over their land to him so the mining company could quietly sweep the poisoned water under the rug

I loved it when Arthur told him to drink the water. The dude was horrified because he knew what was in the water. The poor dopey people of Butcher’s Creek would’ve bought the St. Denis bridge if it was offered.

Did Leviticus Cornwall own the mining company? That scam seemed right up his alley.

The Native was working for the mining company. And the paperwork he was trying to get them to sign was basically saying they give up all rights to sue the mining company due to damages caused by their mining. The lead and arsenic in the water was due to the mining company screw up so the people there would have a great case to sue the crap out of them for damages.

Speaking of Butchers Creek and the totally normal people who live there...

Ya wanna have some fun?
Go to butchers creek at 4AM (some say 5AM)(EITHER WAY... TIME FLYS IN THE GAME)
and look under the floor boards of the shack by the road there.. it glows red... a glowing red pentagram!

If you want to have a better look at it... toss a stick of dynamite into the shack and blow the floor.

Fair warning- save your game before doing this so you can be like Cher (turn back time) in case it goes poorly.
Be sure to have proper long and short guns and plenty of ammo... just in case the good, normal, stable minded folks of butchers creek take offense at your attack on their church... they probably wont, it will be fine. Just explain that you wanted a closer look at the gateway to heII, for science or something. They will probably be reasonable and go back to peacefully butchering pigs.

And speaking of pigs...
For proper atmosphere, before all the fun starts, pick up (and put on) your pig mask hanging on a hook by the butcher area.


Watch out for that damn goat. Bastard gets me everytime I go there lol

After crawling around in that s*** in the cave behind Elysian Pool for the poisoned treasure Arthur might develop something worse than TB...
