A Few Development Notes
- Many of the tables required to use this system are in the Alt Character Creation – Pack System draft. You’ll need both.
- Many of the random life event tables are incomplete. Once the Traits chapter is finalized, we’ll be adding some events that incorporate those. We’ve plugged in a few numbers, so you have a general idea of where it’s going, but for now you’ll have to wing it.
Q. 1 – How did you review the material in this draft?
Did you try them out in actual play with your group? For how many sessions? Using what kind of PCs? Did you crunch some numbers in a marathon character generation session? Or simply read through them with a critical eye?
Q. 2 –What’s the most critical problem you’ve identified in these rules?
Is there an endemic problem you think is underlying this rules set? Is this material too complicated for your liking? Is there a specific rules item you think is egregiously broken and needs to be fixed? Is there anything that you simply think *must* be changed?
Q. 3 – What’s the best part of these rules?
Is there anything that you absolutely loved? Something that you sincerely think *must* make it into the final version? Anything that really contributes to the game in a positive way? Something that shouldn’t be changed?
Q. 4 – Does this system have too many steps? Not enough? Just right?
The real question here may be: how many times do you want to roll on an event table? We aimed to strike a balance between variety and too much. We’ve contemplated combining the Background and Pre-Fall steps into one single stage.
Q. 5 – Should we include free CP at the end for Customization?
We’ve toyed with idea of offering a small amount of CP at the end for final tweaking (no more than 50). We didn’t include it so far because it’s easy enough to tweak a character by dropping points in one area to add to another.
Q. 6 – Any typos, bad grammar, or other errors?
Go ahead and hit us with proofreading corrections.
Q. 7 – Have A Life Event Suggestion?
If you could add one event to any of the event tables, what would it be, and which table would it go on? Please only post suggestions you don’t mind us using in the book without credit or compensation. The events are fun to write, but there are only so many ideas two brains can come up. Help us add some variety!
