So, on Sunday past, we playtested Pauls game in development, 'Pack'. It wasn't without its flaws, but it was a very valuable playtest. I was hoping Paul would write up some AP about it.

So, Paul, your thoughts on the game?

Cheers
Malc

I thought it went really well actually

there were things I had not thought about, being player vs player conflict. which is dumb as I thought this is a lot of player vs player conflict.

things I have to condsider

how to get the characters to be more important to the mechanics by tying in the traits and conflicts of the players.

we need to talk about the concept of the characters a little more I think, it might have been the group though.

I need to frame a scene with the players getting to the starting point of the first scene, for example I need to have the players bound together for the scenes to work

I need to work out the the deal with group vs personal debt and price breaks for traits.

Hey Paul, are you still making some progress on this?

If it's the first scene, then by definition, you frame them in the scene, you don't frame a scene to get them to the first scene. If the point of the scene is to get the players to another scene, skip it and frame them right in the scene you want.
