Dogs in the Vineyard I haven t played it much, but I did write up a town that I tried to run a small local convention It was rough, but fun I m planning to play this again, hopefully in the not too distant future.I m currently reading listening to Orson Scott Card s I liked it, but I have the same issues with it that I found with Apocalypse World by the same author Dogs are the weird RPG that s clearly very narrative focused and can potentially be a sublime experience, but at the same time it s saddled with very unintuitive mechanics which after the first read through seem like they detract from the narrativethan support it I m sure that if you play a session or two of the game, you ll find that those mechanics are not a big deal after all, I liked it, but I have the same issues with it

then I have been educating myself on what has been going on in RPGs for the last 15 years Dogs in the Vineyard is of course on every indie RPG shortlist, and given how much I loved Apocalypse World, I knew that I wanted to read Dogs as well I was lucky enough to find a used, affordable print copy of Dogs on the Half Priced Books website, and I couldn t be happier that I did.I am a big fan of not

simply and thoroughly Dogs is a mere 155 pages, and whi D Vincent Baker s indie darling RPG about the moral and physical tribulations of young keepers of the faith in a demon haunted 19th century Utah is very worth the accolades it has received.My overall thoughts are Awesome concept but too complicated for people new to the genre, would make a few tweaks Here s a somewhat unstructured review based on notes I took while reading Character creation is cool and the introduction to the system as part of it makes a lot of sense I think this wo Dogs in the Vineyard changed the way I approach roleplaying games It s intensely character and situation focused, and the way it works out sets up some very cool and often agonizingly difficult role playing situations It s the leading edge of RPG design that breaks away from the traditional RPG design tropes in a big way If you re a veteran g I m so excited to try playing this game sometime It s very different from Dungeons Dragons and really from any other RPG I ve come across It s set in something roughly approximating the American West in the 1800s, but with a twist to it your character is a member of God s Watchdogs, and it s your job to travel from town to town and make sure that people are keeping the Faith You re basically a religious zealot with a gun, although how you want to play it are you the good guys, savin I m so excited

but with a Every RPG game should have a dice or card game at their center which would be fun to play with all the fiction and acting stripped away Baker s Dogs in the Vineyard has that in spades It s core mechanic is basically a complex poker game with dice The fiction is affected by who wins, often resulting with the winner getting waythan he bargained for The setting is pseudo mormon paladins in a West that never was It is b An entirely fascinating RPG I love the setting and its very conservative ideals, because I can see how they d cause great conflict and great roleplaying The mechanics offer up interesting narrative possibilities, and the emphasis on player interest and direction I really like the setting of DitV but I m doubtful about the conflict resolution system I d need to hear an AP to get a good handle on it and see the added value We ve played a small nine sins campaign of a Christian type of Dogs, and it worked really well The settlements easily lend themselves to a one settlement per week schedule that makes sessions really tight Our game was fully impersonal though, which I think is the most interesting feature of the book and most newfangled Indie G I really like
