GM's Original Notes

These notes have to some extent been obsoleted by scope creep.

This is a place where the player characters are described. Each should have a picture showing what they look like. Also a short description of what the character is like.

In this you would say "Morcor is strong and moves fast", rather than giving his ST and DX. The idea is how the character presents him or herself to the world. I hope that after each chapter or two, the players will read thru the descriptions of their characters and update them to reflect their growing competence, their death, or any other things that have affected their character in the past.

The character sheet is held by the GM and player and what is on that sheet is secret information to all others.
