Within weeks, Murrieta forms a gang made up of the grittiest banditos this side of the Rio Grande and set out to exact cold hard revenge on his enemies. These outlaws fund their personal war by horse stealing, stage coach robbery, as well as bank heists - killing anyone who gets in their way. Murrieta is quickly dubbed The Robin Hood of El Dorado by his supporters for robbing the rich and giving to the poor - but to his enemies he's known as El Diablo. They are joined by 2 other outlaw factions; the Muerte Banditos - experts in thievery, and The Sicarios - experts in gun fighting.
To stop Murrieta and his cohorts, Vigilante groups have formed to restore order in the near lawless Wild West. Commissioned by the Governor himself to lead the fight is Captain Harry Love, a former Texas Ranger and Mexican War Veteran famed for his true grit and keen ability to always get his man. Love has enlisted some old friends to join him in the battle against Murrieta; the notorious Six-Gun Posse and the deadly Regulators have joined Love in the effort to rid California of the Murrieta Gang once and for all - come hell or high water....
After a grueling 3 day running battle between the Vigilantes and the Murrieta Gang, Joaquin and his posse barely escaped with all the gold they had stolen. The victory took a great toll on his gang and they were forced to go into hiding to regroup and rebuild. They traveled south, picking up people along the way willing to take a stand against authority and fight for the oppressed. He has set his sights on the small mining community of Lakeside, a short ride outside of San Diego, nice and close to the Mexican border.
Back up in Norcal, Captain Love has fallen into the boredom and completeness that comes from living an unchallenged life. One morning while reading his morning paper he sees the story of the raids on Lakeside and recognizes the signature style of his old rival Joaquin "El Diablo de El Dorado" Murrieta. He immediately sends telegraph messages to the leaders of the Six-Gun Posse and the Regulators, asking them to join him once again. This time he will put a permanent stop to Murrieta by any means possible, dead or alive.
As Joaquin plans his next raid he has no idea that Love has arrived in Lakeside, lying in wait. Who will survive this encounter?
