This is Red Ryder, and he's in some serious trouble. Rolling a barrel full of gunpowder with a lit fuse is not something I would throw lightly at my players' heroes. We're probably looking at, at least, 6-36 points of damage from that barrel, if not higher (thankfully there would be a save vs. missiles for half damage!).
This is Myra North, and her boyfriend Jack tells us that chartering a trans-Atlantic flight at short notice was not difficult in 1939 (this would almost surely not be the case any longer further into the war years).
This is Tom Mix, and his friend Tony "Lanky" Jones demonstrates the difference between an ordinary person using tracking and what a professional tracker like a Cowboy, Explorer, or a Mysteryman would find; anyone would be able to find the horseshoe prints at the campsite, but Lanky is able to identify the owner by the shape of the horseshoe.
