Dogs in the Vineyard

Postby Saunders » Fri Jul 04, 2014 1:00 pm

I WILL PREPARE FOR YOU A GARDEN ON THE MOUNTAIN,
I WILL PREPARE A LAND OF BALM AND VIRTUE.


Chronicling the journeys of God’s Watchdogs, young men and women called to preserve the Faithful in a hostile frontier territory. They travel from town to isolated town, carrying mail, news, and doctrine, healing the sick, supporting the weary, and pronouncing judgment upon the wicked. They travel through a landscape of high mountains, icy rivers and cedar woods, falling away westward into scrublands, deserts, buttes and swells. The summer skies are heartbreaking blue, but the winters are long and killing.

Their flock are religious pioneers, fleeing persecution and violence in the East, trying to establish a society based on faith and righteousness out in this frontier. They’ve made the long trek westward but they’re still in danger: their towns are small and isolated, vulnerable to attack from without, sin and corruption within. Under pressure, their pride becomes sin, their anger becomes violence, their resentments become hate. Winter and the demons howl... but for God’s Watchdogs, holding the Faith together.

I would be game for a one-shot if we can find a good time.
