Quote from: Ice Cream Emperor on February 12, 2007, 05:34:59 AMI already plan on reducing the maximum number of players to 4 for the con slot, but I was also thinking about using pregenerated characters.
QuoteI'd also appreciate any advice on the whole thing -- are there any tricks that have worked well for getting players through chargen quickly?
QuoteKeeping initiations short?
QuoteReducing the number of players is probably a good thing--more spotlight time for everyone--but using pregens is a bad idea, in my mind. The way a player makes his or her character is your Big Red Honking Flag as to what sorts of conflicts will interest him or her. Give them a pregen, and their investment is lost, I'd bet (I know I don't much give a fig about pregen characters--I tend to get them killed in spectacular ways).
