Quote from: boredoom on October 02, 2006, 05:38:11 PM It seems the mechanics fragment the group, which isn't really what I'm looking for.
QuoteIn other words, with regard to my character's status as a liability, it isn't luck: the approach I took towards creating a character - have a bunch of different Muses that were not connected to each other or only loosely connected to each other in order to "see where they would take me" - was not as effective as having a group of Muses that were designed to work in concert with each other. (Which is completely obvious to me in retrospect and may even be part of the advice given in the book). Although, in my defense, during the first session of the game I had really lousy cards, so the difference between my character and Thor's, while slight at first, grew pretty quickly as he started consistently earning points
Quote from: Matt Snyder on October 04, 2006, 11:48:38 AMI recommend that you let the game play out a bit longer. I have observed players take these two alternate paths you describe. The more focused player burns brightly ... until his story arc resolves. And, then he's left pretty open and relatively "weak" as he basically starts from scratch. Meanwhile, the player with a varied character is a slow-burn, and builds up a considerable amount of effectiveness and versatility over several sessions -- at least 4-5 sessions.
