Thank you. We'll see if it ever comes to anything. I'm much better at planning games than at actually writing down the plans and running them. :(

Edit: Would it be horribly out of place to put a Catholic minister in Texas? I'm not familiar with the religious distribution of the U.S.

A slight tangent, but an important one nonetheless, is that any Great War survivor in your game will also be a 1918 Influenza Pandemic survivor.

Out of place no...but he would be used to being seriously outnumbered by the Southern Bapists...but really you can find just about any denomination just about anywhere...

Now mind you some of his Neighbors might not be to happy...and the Klan (KKK) might stop by for a visit...but he could be there.

(Second big Klan movement in the 1920's had Anti-Catholicism as a large part of the sales pitch..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KKK#Second_KKK.)

Could a Catholic be elected as sheriff (you elect sheriffs, right)? I want the sheriff to confess something to the priest, the priest feels he must contact S.A.V.E. but can't give any details due to confession being a holy trust.

Although I suppose a Southern Baptist minister who promised not to tell would do as well.

A Baptist sheriff might talk to a priest like he would a minister if he was personally on good terms with him. It wouldn't be a formal confession, but the priest might treat it with the same confidentiality.

BTW, there are actually a lot of Catholics in Texas, but most are Hispanic. It would be an oddity to see one in elected office in the 1920s.

Of course, it's about as likely that a 1920s southern sheriff would accuse a priest of being part of an Un-American Papist conspiracy, so don't take what I said as being hard fact.

Both sheriff and priest are meant to be sympathetic figures. The sheriff just happens to be the grandson of the wrong man.
