That alternate setting thread had gotten me stoked, definitely confirmed my support for dogs in the vineyard, really neat idea to switch it up just enough. Should we play the standard first just once though, to get the idea?
Anyway, ideas for setting:
Not too far in the future where the map has begun to open but some people are still holding on to civilization. Set in an opne map pocket where people have begun to fend for themselves, but there is still distant influence of some kind of gov. For towns, some could be tribes, some could be horticulture villages. 'dogs' are dedicated to the gods of the land, trying to stop people succumbing to control of remnant civilization and instill values of the land.
I don't know definitely room for improvement, and we may not even play DitV, but still, I had to get that out there.
