It is the most exhilarating and rewarding experience you can do in this hobby.
Just ensure you have a firm grasp of the rules, interesting NPCs, and an engaging scenario.
Is Evil Gaz's advice still around somewhere? That was always worth a read.

My advice is that if you do write pre-gens, give them a reason in their backgrounds to spark off each other. I'm not advocating PVP, but you can give them a steer on how they get on. A couple of hooks mean that the players tend to engage in more. Of course, some of the more modern games do this by design (e.g. bonds, relationships etc).

Done - can you confirm how many players that you're thinking of?
Always 2-6

Saturday “Lock Stock and Over a Barrel” Manifold Eaat End Crime (always a blast)

Sunday “The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes” The Code of Steam and Steel - went so well at 7hills. Deserves another play.

Though I reserve the right to swap them out prior to prebooking if the muse strikes.

Thanks for this!

So I see this thread in “New Posts” and think “Is it THAT time already?” Start thinking of what I might run. Open the thread. See the date. Think I’ve missed the submission deadline. Then find I submitted gsmes weeks ago.

Getting old.

DramaSystem, which I’m adopting, is all about that which is why I thought it might be perfect 😊
Just keep in mind that you're running in a 3-hour slot, which is a really good reason to either have pre-gens or a very focused and short at-the-table character generation. I could be wrong, but I thought DramaSystem took a little while to create characters...
