I'm definitely going to keep a hold on the notes so I can run it if I need something that week (since I usually GM).  In that case, do y'all mind if I use others' characters as pregens?  Feel free to use mine (though you may want to modify it as he had a lot of skills that were largely useless for the scenario)...

Go for it! Whoever uses mine will do a fuckton of running around.

I'm going to great another pregen character to play opposite of Whitworth, so I'll let you guys know when I have him done.

What'd I tell you, guys? Totally called it.
Jesus, how was the chatlog that long?

On a more related note, it was a fun game.  I think the chatlog proves that.

There was a lot of time spent on the chatlog while Charlie72 was murderin'


I killed one person! In self-defense!

I'll try and get the recording on the community site ASAP.

I... am... bummed...  :(

I wanted to play so very badly. I guess its a good thing I didn't, because I would have gone the serious route and tried to "get into" my character...

Sounds like it was a blast.

If anybody else plans on doing running this game via Skype, let me know, because I am definitely in!

I think we did try to get into our characters, and did a pretty good job, the "problem" may have just been that Charlie did it too well which made it absolutely hilarious because from an outside perspective it was pretty easy to tell before about halfway through that things were just going to go to hell...

I don't mind if you throw mine in. Modify at will, too.

You played the negotiator right? I felt bad for you that your skills couldn't be fully utilitized. Felt bad for the medic, too, because he was in such high demand that he didn't get to do his own thing as much. Salkovich: thanks for playing the medic. You get the workhorse/beast of burden award.

Negotiator could be an interesting character to use as a pregen and build one or two encounters around. I'll have to think about it when I revise the notes. How do you guys think that character archetype could be best realized?

When I make pregens, I'm thinking about making 6 characters.

Point Man (secondary role would be electrical repair / handyman)
Point Man (secondary role would be infiltration expert / lock pick expert)
Medic
Biochemist
Psychologist (secondary role would be computer repair / technician) - Whitworth

I need one more so what should it be? The secondary role of the sixth character would also be computer repair / technician, like Whitworth. What archetype should that be? Negotiator?

I was the negotiator.  In all honesty, I suppose it was a bad idea to think I could negotiate with anyone after reading the pregame text.  It was worth a shot, though.

I wouldn't mind if you threw in my character (probably with a few modifications).

When I revise, I'm going to include a few people that haven't been affected by the image.

Since I'm looking to run this soon, I sent you (patrick) a question via PM. Answer at your leisure.

Version two of the game notes will be available later this week with the first set of revisions. Post any comments / suggestions of things you want to see here. If you want a new copy of the game notes, PM me with an email address to send it to.

This version will include:

6 Pregens
1 Major Edit
Several Minor Edits

Specifically looking for suggestions on improvised weapons and traps using standard office furniture that I can rework into game terms.
