How do you suppose the town burned down? Maybe a spot fire from the nearby forest fire? So weird how everything around the town was spared though

Arthur might know more than he lets on...

From trailer 3

(I assume it's just a shot set up for the trailer, but maybe, clutching at straws, there was some removed event in Limpany)

The more I play it, the more I spot gapping holes in the original design they cut out to ship the game.  Lots of content that goes nowhere except for a couple resource items.  In this case, Limpany has that gold bar though.

 

Limpany seems very out of the way too for a town, like it was specific to a mission and not as an ambient location.  Towns typically have a road through it and don't dead end.  You could weakly say it was a gold mining pop-up town, however there's very little in the surroundings to suggest the magnitude of this establishment.  It's not just a couple of tents and a riverside gold sluice box.

 

The abandoned Ewing Basin up north is a better example of a gold "town"

Having said all of that -- I love the mystery of Limpany!  I want to know more :)

Rockstar probably threw a couple of molotovs to make the shot look cooler for the trailer...

I tried to do some investigating around here to try turn up some clues.

Most reasonable one I could come up with was that the town sherriff captured one of O'Driscolls boys, possibly someone close to Colm (the body in the cell) and either questioned him or killed him. Colm had his gang retaliate by burning down the town as a message, which we know wouldn't be too far fetched for him.

 

I'd be interested in any other theories anyone has.

Looking at its location, is logical for it to not have a road going through it, but to be next to a road instead (which is the case). Limpany looks like a small mining town, nothing else. 

 

Newspapers should explain what happened there, tho. Or some letter/note you can collect somewhere.

We will see it in RDR3 as a functional town, when we play as Arthur in the epilogue, who will have the wrong hairstyle.

Really? I think it's position sitting on the Dakota River isn't really out of the way at all,  one of my personal problems with that river is that there's a road next to it pretty much running the entire length of the river and i can't find an out of the way spot

I notice there is a burned area of forest north of the town, I assumed it might have been a spot fire (embers carried by the wind)

Is there though? I tried to find an article,  but my newspaper boy is glitched and I can't buy any copies of the New Hanover Gazette

From the size of town it is without a reason to construct back towards the cliff like a cul-de-sac, I'd expect businesses to want the most exposure they can to people passing by.  So here's two dynamic ways the town could've been placed.

It's a minor point after-the-fact, so I'm not saying it's a bad place... only that it could've been even better with some common world ecology thought or a more prominent story point to explain its location.

I wish Rockstar let you read Newspapers on their Social Club, them you can access them whenever you want.

Just what I was thinking yesterday tbh. Its a shame because this could have potentially been one of the best towns we got, right along the river is such a nice spot in game.

I did notice that but I was thinking the fire could have spread the other way, from the town to the forest. But still yours is probably more likely than my theory, well spotted.

I burned the place down after I took only 1 gold bar and then found out about the glitch too late!

The gold bar in the sheriff's office has respawned for me over 5 times so far. Each time after at least 4-5 ingame days. No glitch or nothing, just finding the lockbox closed and with a gold bar again.

 

 

 

Colm O'Driscoll had the town burned down.

I think the location and layout actually make some sense. The town is next to the ford in the river, so it's at a crossroad of sorts. If you go to the left of the jail and up the hill it's looks like an old trail that is no longer used. It would be similar to the layout you have in blue. I think it old became a cul-de-sac after it burned out and folks stopped using that trail.
