Thursdays 10/18 and 10/25

This is for any RPG related out-of-character stuff like rules discussions, character ideas, loot wishlists, etc. If it's about game mechanics in any way, it goes here.

So we're out a Dan this week and the week after. Any exciting plans yet? If we're looking for guest stars, I think Eddie and maybe my sister Madsy might be available. Or we could call one of our viewers from nearby. I figure sending out invites sooner than later would be a good idea.

Oh there are plans. Plans within plans. And those plans are stored in small boxes inside of other boxes.

Guys, Dogs in the Vineyard was pretty fun last night! I am stoked to play it again next week! I really like the way the conflict/resolution system works.

Alas kiddies, I have some good and bad news. The bad news is that I will not be attending tomorrow's DITV festivities (and Halloween dress-up). The good news is that I'm going to the World Series instead! Huzzah and go Giants!

Just something I put together after Cailin cracked me up mid-scene:

I had fun tonight. Thanks Cailin for GMing! It sort of ended up being like an old west version of Supernatural. Like, amazingly similar now that I'm thinking about it. Rolling into a town on the info that something's up, talking with local law enforcement, interviewing the witnesses, meeting the doctor, twisty plot, epic confrontation. I had a rather good time.

Glad to hear you had fun with my favorite system! Cailin did an excellent job GMing. I had a blast trying to sort out what was really happening in the town, and following the adventure of Washington "The knife block" Price.

It was fairly interesting for me seeing the Dogs played outside of their usual position of authority. In the last game I'd run my players ended up walking into town and shortly thereafter I accidentally introduced a character they weren't meant to have met yet. Long story short: They beat some information out of him and called a town meeting where they shot the four remaining cultists dead in the crowd and left telling the steward of the town to clean up the mess. Not my finest Dogs moment to be sure, but it was pretty amusing for us all that the situation was dealt with in less than an hour of game time.

On the subject of fallout that my inner rules lawyer was freaking out about, I think you started doing it correctly towards the end(unless the demon was throwing out eight ones in addition to two other dice) but during earlier conflicts with the Madame of the silver cat and those goons in the alley, blows were being taken but only a single fallout die was assigned. When you take the blow you take then total number of dice put out to match the opponents attack, so when Washington pulled out his hat in that magnificent fashion in the social conflict with Madame Lulu he'd have taken 3d4 social fallout rather than the single d4, likewise those goons Washington shot-up would've taken 3d10 rather than a d10.

Taking a bunch of fallout is awesome! So long as you aren't taking d10s that is, had Washington taken a few more d4s in fallout dice from Lulu he could have potentially gotten a long term fallout condition which would have let him advance a character stat or add a die to one of his traits had he rolled any ones in the die pool. Nothing quite like a freshly upgraded jar of dirt to help out with the pesky critters in a town.

Thanks again for playing my favorite system! I was incredibly excited and extremely entertained!

I'm glad to hear my GMing was passable to someone who knows the system so well! Sorry about the fallout dice thing, but I think next time we'll have a better idea of what's going on!

Sam, I've never seen Supernatural, but if it's anything like The Adventures of Washington Price then I'll have to check it out.
