QuoteAs part of that revision, I will include more Old West setting-type information. I do not aim to create a comprehensive guide to 19th century history, a timeline, or anything "authoritative." I aim instead to package a valuable section on giving context and "fuel" for your Dust Devils characters and creating good situations for play.
Quote from: Matt Snyder on January 03, 2006, 03:27:12 PMHow have you handled Indians in your Dust Devils play? Was it an issue among players? Did you do it "second nature" or give it serious thought to include?
Quote[li]What do you think is NOT acceptable in my portrayal of Native Americans in a Dust Devils game? Why? Where do you draw the line? Do you draw the line at all?[/li]
Quote[li]What would you absolutely expect to see in Dust Devils revised regarding this topic?[/li]
Quote[li]Do you have any connections with tribe members? Can you put me in contact with anyone who could provide input or review?[/li]
Quote[li]Are you aware of concerns/issues with the title Indians, Native Americans, Indigenous, or other titles? Do you advise a particular usage, and how do you handle such usage with "Indian" in the fictional usage for the game (No one in the Old West said "Native American," obviously).[/li]
Quote[li]Do you think a separate supplement, download, or article devoted to Native Americans would be worthwhile?[/li][/list]
QuotePeople, this topic can be loaded, political discussion. It will not get acrimonious. I will ruthlessly delete aruging and bullshit. I may also split off threads if necessary.
