View Full Version : Dogs in the Vineyard help

I've been a hardcore 3.5 D&D, Star Wars d20 and hopefully Cyberpunk and BattleTech gamer. I played a game of Dogs in the Vineyard at a convention and fell in love. Besides the book, what useful information can you share for running a game with a group of people used to D&D.

Ooh, that's a good question. I haven't run it, but I did play it at a Con so, I'll tell you what the DM told us.
Sometimes you want to lose, to make a better story. Conflict is more then beating the tar out of things, it's words and arguments. Conceading a point is not losing the war, it is but oen battle. And sometimes, you can lose the battle, for story purposes.
