Hey guys,

Nevermind, I just realized I was responding to confusion about the wrong question.

Is there a reason you'd want to do this?

He's talking about this:
Quote from: I
Exactly. You can inflict d10s in Fallout (by shooting someone) without ever rolling Acuity+Will (by escalating to gunfighting). You just have to shoot them in non-gunfighting circumstances.

No. There's no earthly reason you'd want to do it, I can't think of a one. The rules allow it, to no one's benefit. I thought that pointing it out might clarify the lines the rules do draw, though, between Escalation and Fallout.

So ... do you guys really need an example? Any example I can come up with would be, y'know, crap plus big.

Other Game Highlights:

- The PC's threaten to burn the town to the GROUND and relocate EVERYONE!  Holy shit!  I was hoping they'd do that even as they said it...I couldn't wait for the conflict with the desert...

- Jeff narrating his own death ws really great.  He did a bang-up job.

- Bob Wolfe's PC (yes, that's his name, not his character'sname...but Mr. Wolfe is quite a character) attempted to knife a sinner in church.

- Kris' PC debating the virtue of the town building the Temple a new roof after a long day of working in the sun on the porch of the elderly Elijah.

 - Drew had his moments too but they are slipping my mind in my exausted state.  

Another solid game of Dogs...

You're quite welcome.

Rest?  But I'm not done writing my post about running accomplishments with gusto!

I want to re-read the book before posting it, though.  More on that later.

Ha! We're in the middle of a similar situation in our Dogs game (too much out of game chatter, and a time limit made us cut the game short) Raven is seriously pushing for the "raze the town and relocate the citizens" option, and Dove is pretending to consider it for intimidation value. I wonder how common this sort of thing is in Dogs?

I'll be writing up an Actual Play post this evening, for anyone interested in the details.
