Quote from: nikolaYou've just set the weirdometer too high for your group.And, if I might be so bold, you haven't seen the right Westerns. Go rent High Plains Drifter and The Outlaw Josey Wales. There's nothing supernatural in either (though there's something seriously weird in High Plains Drifter), but the stuff going on is all the same as in a Dogs game.I have a hard time not seeing Dogs as being the best game available for doing Westerns.
QuoteAlso, religion was a central part of America in the 19th century. All the original American religions - Christian Science, Mormonism, Spiritism, the Matthians, Jehova's Witnesses, Born-Again Christianity, and all sorts of other unique religions were a tremendous part of the social landscape.You can't have a Western without it.
Quote from: demiurgeastarothbut the fact that they know those things are sins in the setting takes all the fun out of it. ...The players who feel this way said it was brought home most strongly in the last session, when there was a saloon in town, and they realised that all the things they suddenly wanted to do, and would do in a different Western game, were actually wrong in this one.
Quote from: nikolaDid you just say that your players won't play bad guys unless it's OK with the other characters?
