My intended story involves something of a prologue session or two in which the characters are youths to be followed by something when they are older. Notionally the characters would be two lifepath characters for the prologue session and three lifepath characters for the regular time.
How would you suggest handling this for character burning? - bear in mind a standard period of time needs to pass between prologue and main campaign so if you were to be strict about it then it’s not sensible for some characters to have a 2 year life path and others to have a 6 year.
Im not sure I care to be so strict as that but I am hoping someone has a more elegant way to handle it.
