comment Looking for a Space marine RPG similar to Starship Troopers (the Novel)
+1 for 3:16, which is superficially Starship Troopers/Aliens but subtextually The Forever War.

comment What are the reasons for limiting number of players in Dogs in the Vineyard?
"I wouldn’t go over say four" is not a phrasing a good writer would use for a "hard and fast" rule. Vincent Baker is a very good writer.

comment How does acquiring a template that changes hit dice affect pre-existing hit points?
You could also multiply by 6.5/4.5 (expected values from d12 and d8) and round, so 18 HP would go to 26 HP.

comment “Punishing” characters for stupid actions
Added a few more thoughts above. Seems like you're conscious of the possibility of being non-fun mean, so acknowledge the temptation and choose to be "fun mean" instead.
