What is canine within the Vineyard?

The online game is determined in "a West that by no means rather was"—loosely according to the Mormon country of Deseret in pre-statehood Utah. avid gamers are "God's Watchdogs" (Dogs), who commute from city to city supplying mail, assisting out the neighborhood and implementing the judgments of the genuine religion of the King of lifestyles. this can contain whatever from providing new interpretations to the town's Steward to executing heretics. canine have absolute authority in the religion, yet now not in the legislation of the Territorial Authority, and so their activities may end up in clash with the govt within the East.

Mechanics

The online game includes a type of clash solution, the place die rolls are utilized in poker-style bids.
Characters' records and characteristics are represented by means of cube swimming pools. at the beginning of a clash, the Gamemaster and different gamers come to a decision what's at stake, make certain which swimming pools are appropriate, and people are rolled at that time. the nature with the initiative places ahead a "raise" of 2 cube, whereas narrating a component to the clash that's precious to his character's place within the clash. The opponent needs to reply by means of declaring a number of cube whose overall exceeds the full of the cube which have been used to elevate, or "give"—i.e. lose the clash. If 3 or extra cube are wanted, the opponent suffers "fallout"—a detrimental final result to be made up our minds on the finish of the clash. If just one die is required via the opponent, the assault has been "turned opposed to the attacker" and the die might be reused to elevate within the subsequent around. The opponent now starts off a around by means of asserting cube which the 1st personality needs to fit, and so forth till one participant or the opposite supplies. avid gamers may possibly usher in new cube by means of "escalating" the clash, from non-physical (discussion) to actual (running away) to brawling after which to gunfighting. If the clash didn't begin with non-physical, avid gamers may well de-escalate from gunfighting to dialogue, although it happens simply infrequently. The GM's algorithm in clash is particularly uncomplicated: "Say certain, or roll dice."
One of the main powerful points of the approach is "Town Creation" the place the ethical panorama of town is specified by the shape of characters, their wishes, and what they've performed to one another. this offers the GM the power to ensure that purely enticing meaningfully within the city is attention-grabbing and making wins or losses less significant to them. through representing the townsfolk and their pursuits, instead of proposing a tactical problem, the GM is ready to pose attention-grabbing questions of the gamers and provides them possibilities to pass judgement on their very own characters.
