Quote from: ks13This goes way back to a demo that Vincent ran at Vericon, many, many months ago. I have to say that I was rather lost, or perhaps that the concept never really fell into place for me. Most of this is probably due to feeling completely in the dark about what the game was about. I know absolutely nothing about Mormons, so when you say the game is about Mormons or a Mormon-like society, it doesn't tell me anything. For most people it seems to bring about some image or framework with which to work, but I have nothing to go with. How do I roleplay something which I have no reference point for at all?
QuoteThe issue of playing a religious character isn't problematic, but I would find it a lot easier to work off of a made-up religion that is described in a few paragraphs and everything else is an interpretation of that. DitV implied that you have some starting point grounded in a real religion. But not knowing what's involved in the Mormon culture, how they act (in a general sense), address each other, or express their religious views didn't make it easy to jump into the game (for me).
