Benjamin and Seriah have confronted evidence of hatred and murder, the end of the path that starts with pride. It could be Ben’s love for his brother blinding him from the will of the King of Life, or it could be an explanation for all the dark signs they have seen in Heaven. Even as inexperienced Dogs, their choices represent the King’s will. If they falter in judgement, they will falter in faith.

  1. Phillip Bailey says:

    Thank you all for one of the best series of game sessions I believe you have produced so far

    1. Aly Grauer says:

      *salute* We’re really glad you liked it!

  2. Bradley Null says:

    This was an incredible story. Possibly the best actual play I’ve listed too.

    1. Aly Grauer says:

      Wow! High praise indeed. We’re honored by this. Thank you!

  3. Kallunnah says:

    I agree I loved this one. It was quite original and put on the table a whole new series of motivations. Conversations about faith can be truly uncomfortable to listen to but this just was done really well. Congratulations to all of you!

    1. Aly Grauer says:

      Agree. Faith is a delicate subject to handle – for some people, it can be too personal, too sensitive, and for others, not worth respecting enough. We were really glad to have a chance to try out this fantastic game and also to kind of ‘represent’ in a positive, open way. 🙂

  4. Benton says:

    Have to agree. Possibly the best dramatic One Shot yet!

  5. Heath Wilder says:

    I’ve always wanted to play this but was a bit hesitant on the rules and setting. But wow! You guys were phenomenal. Can’t wait to get a game going. It really captures that western feel in a way you don’t find in most pulpy action RPGs.

    Also I can’t wait to see the spin off “Goats in the Vineyard”

    I have to also extend my praise to you all for a first-rate series. The three of you weaved such a wonderful and dramatic story. I could feel the harsh cold that permeated the environment. The sense of foreboding and oppression as the King of Shadows insidiously made the devout give up little pieces of the faith with clever words and reasoning. The power of the faith of those who held on, and the room for redemption was also breathtaking.

    James and Drew, I did tear up during the final exchange between Lumply and Benjamin. Truly moving.

    And not to forget Aly, the practiced patience/love expressed at the end with Benjamin and Jimmy as the three road out of town was sweet and made me wanting to see more of these characters.

    I notice that Aly is again in one of my all-time favorite series (see my comments from Steamscapes). Is this a sign that the Network needs to add a new personality?

    Bravo.

    1. Aly Grauer says:

      Thank you, Solicitor 6. Thank you so, so much.
