Last week, most of the posts were about the background details for the characters, and the history of the game setting. This weekend, we finally managed to start the game, and introduce the characters to each other in a very basic scenario (a robbery at an electronics mega-store). The main purpose was really to get each player familiar with their characters, flush out any design flaws, and get the story started.
Overall, very successful. Spider Monkey was determined to need some modification (swinging was redundant to his running with clinging ability), but otherwise everyone was fairly happy with the starting point. Experience as planned will be high for the first several games, at 10 pts for each character, which will allow for rapid customization. But as a starting point, here are the 4 characters that began the game yesterday.
