We burned up our setting and have created the FoN. I have three players and myself. We have six figures of note. One of which is a PC that is a Forged-Lord.
The Forged Lord player really wanted his character to be 13 year old kid whose father was the Forged Lord and died recently. So he has the rank and the lifepath, but not much else. He is actually a 3 Lifepath Character. I thought about giving him more, but we already fudged the age for those three lifepaths. We balanced that by having his advisor being a 7 lifepath character. I figure that is okay. He is the only PC FoN (as stated before)
So I have control of the other five (two for the human side, three for the Vaylen side). One question I have does that mean I get a color, interstitial, and building for each… and one conflict for the Vaylen side? That is a lot of scenes to fiddle with. Am I understanding this correctly?
Also, during world burning, the Vaylen came out with a lot more points. The points worked out like this
Vaylen INF 24 USP 30 INV 24
Human INF 20 USP 22 INV 29
So the humans don’t get an advantage until Invasion… is this typical? I already know which factions my side is going to activate, but I assume the my GM Human FoN’s can activate factions and create a faction war.
Any tips here. I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed, because this seems like quite a bit to manage in terms of FoN. Also, I am worried I am going to trounce my players because they seem kind of caught off guard by all the meta-game stuff (i.e. scene currency, the game being competitive). With such an advantage, I don’t know if they have a chance. All of them are far too cheap to buy the book, so I will be teaching them the rules. Any tips there also.
Oh… one other thing, I have a first printing of the book and now that I am actually using it (it basically sat on a shelf for about a year), it is starting to come apart. I heard there were issues with the first printing and the binding. Is this accurate, or just some unfounded rumor?
