To refresh folks memories about the Sunday player characters... spross is playing Tucker Harris, a Provost in Folly Hills, who has serious guilt issues, a drinking problem, and some enemies that you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley anywhere in The City. Tammy is playing Megan "Mouse" Owens, an antiquities hunter from Folly Hills, whose entire family was killed in a deliberate explosion that destroyed the family home.
I started the session off, once both players had arrived, with an introduction to the world of a|state Roleplaying Game and the environment of The City. They proceeded to process once more the basic mechanics of the game, proceeded to take on a bit of the a|state RPG Glossary, and partook in several samples of combat that re-educated them on the basic mechanics of this gothic sf Dickensian game. And just how deadly the combat system really is.
From what I saw, both Tammy and spross had a good time with the session and how everything played out, though Tucker Harris died twice during the sample combats. In any event, I'm rather looking forward to running the a|state game once again on Sunday afternoons.
