​​Welcome to Luna City; a scenic small town in Karnes County, Texas, home of the champion Mighty Fighting Moths high school football team - which doesn't win too many games any more, but the marching band are state-wide champions. The heart of downtown Luna City is Town Square - a grove of oak trees and lawns, and an ornate late Victorian bandstand. Businesses around Town Square include Luna Cafe and Coffee - run by Richard Astor-Hall, an Englishman and a runaway former celebrity chef, fleeing his past. There is Abernathy Hardware, nearly the oldest business in town, the Cattleman Hotel - which is haunted - and the Chamber of Commerce, situated in the old Luna Savings & Loan building, which once was robbed by the Newton Boys in 1922. Then there is Stein's Wild West Round-up' antoiquarian books, art and memorabilia run by the Georg and Annise from Germany, who were wild West enthusiasts from way back. On the outskirts of Luna City is the Age of Acquarius Campground and Goat Farm; that is run by Judy and Sefton Grant, who dropped out in 1968, persuing the commune life. To all these people, the intertwined and long-established Gonzalez and Gonzales clans, the Bodies of the feed mill, Patricia and Andy Pryor who run a BBQ food truck, Joe Vaughn who keeps law and order in town ... Luna City is home, and they wouldn't have it any other way.
