Title: Collecting Towns
Post by: Levi Kornelsen on December 09, 2005, 11:09:11 PM
Having read many of the threads on this board, I'm going to be wandering through this board, collecting the towns (or, at least, collecting the links to them).  Many, if not most, of the towns posted here are really interesting to read, and if I ever make it to having a DitV LARP, I'm going to need a lot of towns eventually.

The links list, I'll post in this thread.

I'd also be eminently willing to collect them into a pretty PDF - it wouldn't really be much added effort - but they're still copyright of their respective writers, I believe.  So, I'll leave that up to Vincent and/or the writers, if he / they wants to figure that one out.

Are there any places other than here and the DitV main site that have towns written up for reference or use?

Here are some random DitV town collections I've found:
  • Many of the towns on these forums are helpfully linked from the DitV site: http://www.septemberquestion.org/lumpley/dogsources.html
  • http://www.meekmok.com/sassy/dogs/resources.html
  • http://www.weeksfamily.net/games/DitV/townlist.aspx

I keep my towns on my Geocities site  (http://www.geocities.com/rpgjunkie74/) now.  Feel free to use them however you'd like.

From Pages 10-26 (the current end) of this forum.  I'll go through pages 1-9 later on.  Note that not all of these towns are fully finished, as their discussions tend to indicate, and several (especially toward the end) are duplicated elsewhere.

Also, James Holloway's two towns for his on-line game at http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=205968 have utterly broken me - he could give a master course in GMing Dogs and we're not even at a tabletop - I don't know if he has the towns proper posted anywhere, but if so someone should link to them.

Boy it would rock if there were some database in which we could sort the towns folks had posted by the level of sin it'd reached (Sin, False Doctrine, Sorcerer, etc), and even if we could rate them!

snip unjustified praise of Pike's Crossing and White Srpings Branch

don't know if he has the towns proper posted anywhere, but if so someone should link to them.

Hmmmmm. I'm pretty swamped with work right now, but on the other hand writing up one of these towns shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes. If I have time tonight to look over my notes, I'll see what I can do.

I do not have towns as such.

However, I constructed a sketchy map of my version of the Territory.

In it, several towns are mentioned and sequences of events are hinted at.  Anyone designing a town might look to my map, or lexicon, or other part of the wiki for town inspirations

Towns and Places
  • Bethany Creek
  • Bristlecone Lake
  • Cold River
  • Mertonville
  • Twisted Wood Ranch

Persons and Creatures
  • The Abominations
  • Anahiwa
  • Campbell, Elijah (1810 - 1822)
  • Departed Ones
  • Geller, Solomon
  • Heap, Ukaiah
  • Kenebune
  • Monish, or Elk Standing
  • Steese, Patience
  • Tenskwatawa, the Ghost Who Walks Through Doors

I recently ran my town Crooked River Flats at Gateway 2007 and had good success. Jason Morningstar was nice enough to post it on his website. Link below:

@James R. (NoClue): good town there! There seems a lot going on though... is it more of a 2 session town?


Title: Re: Collecting Towns
Post by: Noclue on November 26, 2007, 09:14:54 PM
Yeah it definitely needs more than one session to not feel too rushed. I like it because everywhere the Dogs turn there's someone coming up saying "help me. fix this." Its a big sandbox, which may be my years playing D&D shining through. The next time I run Dogs I'm going to try a more straightforward town to see how that plays.
