Quote from: Doctrine & Covenants 89:5-175 That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him.6 And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make.7 And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.8 And again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill.9 And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.10 And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man—11 Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving.12 Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine.14 All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth;15 And these hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger.16 All grain is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—17 Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain.
QuoteAlso, if it were me, I'd handle the classic gunfight as two conflicts: one to get to the gang boss through the gang, then a followup conflict to fight the gang boss.
Quote from: SeanA. Towns. It seems as though the 'ladder of sin' is primarily a tool for GMs to construct towns, and that the way the Dogs engage with the whole situation is more important than their uncovering each step upon the ladder. That is, the 'solution' to a wife's Pride that she should be richer and more respected than everyone else in town might wind up being ferreting out her pride and counseling her, or it might be setting her crooked husband straight without much interaction with her, or it might be a gunfight with the various underlings in her husband's business, etc. As I understand it the Dogs don't 'win' or 'lose' by figuring out the GMs setup, but by learning as much as they can about the situation and the actors in it and then making a judgment. Yes? Any extra tips here?
