Guilty Before God is a game of judicial dueling. Duels took place for a great many reasons in American history. Ultimately, someone’s honor was besmirched and they felt that the only answer left to them was to resort to violence. Dueling pistols were kept in wooden cases, lined in velvet. Knives and swords were also good and honorable dueling weapons. Shotguns and rifles were also used, sometimes at a [shocking range].
