i learned a while ago that some publishers used to sell the book blocks, without covers, on the assumption that customers would want to cover all their books in a consistent style and honestly that rules
these are the only two good formats of books
then take your 2-6 rascals, shove them into a situation that is ready to fall apart in three different ways and watch them find a fourth
you want to weave everyone's characters together? either throw them in medias res together or ask everyone one (1) leading question about their relation to someone else at the table
character creation (fully random, if possible) in less than 10 min or i'm outta here, i got dishes to do i can't be fucking around with chargen for two hours
also thinking about how they learn things like mechanicals sort of as an afterthought (one i talked to said she got an A in mechanicals but remembers none of it) and like, this seems backwards
i don't want to live in half of someone's creative vision that was compromised because the HVAC needs to go somewhere.
