August 28, 2005: 2:09 pm: Game systems

Yesterday a friend of mine brought along some of his RPG purchases from GenCon so I could have a look at them (thanks, Jack!), and in addition to convincing me that I really want a copy of Polaris (and also really want the copy of The Mountain Witch that I ordered last week to show up), it made me decide to get a copy of the new version of Dogs in the Vineyard. There may not be a whole lot of rules changes, but the layout is much improved, and since Vincent is going to offer an upgrade deal, I think it’ll be well worth the money.

: 2:02 pm: Game theory (or close enough), GMing, Playing

Over on The Forge, there’s a great Actual Play thread about a Dogs in the Vineyard session that took place at GenCon. The actions of one of the characters apparently crossed a line for one of the players, and the discussion gradually develops into talking about how to deal with such situations.
