The Darkness of Futures Past

In a growing trend, we have Spirit of the Century Amber games.

And consider just how many questions and thresholds a GM might want in order to help sort out choice Players for a long-term campaign.

[FATE Amber] The Darkness of Futures Past on RPoL, thread #3

[update 9/27: the game never started and is now gone from RPOL]

The same guy posted that to the ADRPG lj group this morning. I admire the effort he's putting in, but geez, even I wouldn't ask for three concepts per player. When we did recruiting, we only asked for one.

Yeah, he's asking a lot.

Based on his system choice and how he expects to populate his game, I'd say he's really looking for an elite response.

And to get more than 'retread PC concepts' from other Amber games.

The wonderfully interesting bit is that I'm in the middle of pulling the SRD for FATE apart, trying to decide how to do the very same thing.
