Quote from: Jake NorwoodI've got it. I've read most of it. Haven't played it yet...I want to, but not bad enough to disrupt our current schedule. Hopefully we'll have an Actual Play report on it, oh, this month.
Quote from: deidzoebHi Matt,I downloaded Dust Devils. It looks really good. Hoping to play it as soon as I can get my gaming group interested.The movies mentioned in the rules give some good ideas, but I think it would be helpful to list some brief examples of scenarios that could be used for the game.
Quote from: hardcoremooseOne immediate problem experienced by the players as they tried to make characters was that it seemed like a humorous game to them. The half-sized character sheets, the cliched western naming convention for skills, and the fact that the Devil wasn't presented either in the rules or the character sheet as something important (their words, not mine) all led them to believe it was a sort of western parody game. We quickly corrected them, some revisions were made to characters, and we were well onour way to having a good game, but the comments from these people (all non-Forgites) might be worth considering. Some aesthetic choices about presentation*, as well as a spotlight on the Devil and how important it is to play, might drive home the serious nature of the game.
