The 'Children of the Gods' have been born

In other words, we got character creation for my new HERO game done yesterday.

It was quite a sight to see - we had the HERO 5th edition book, two hardcopies of the HERO Sidekick (basically, the stripped-down HERO rules, but OK for character generation) and a PDF of HERO 5th Edition Revised on lostsatyr's & my laptop, all being used at once.

We started at around 1 PM, broke for dinner around 6ish, and by the time everyone was done, it was around 9 PM. As ambrose_rinaldo (or was it tarbis?) put it, "We just put in a full day's work!" :D Then again, I guess that's what happens when you have two characters with multiple forms (Multiform, for those familiar with HERO/Champions) and we have a person starting late.

Well, the hard part's over now (as I told im_a_woman). Playing the game is much easier than character generation. :)

So, next week, the newly-generated "Olympians" go out on their first mission. *bounces up and down excitedly*

I'm guessing a fair percentage of players weren't too comfortable with HERO?

I think only two of them had played before, and of those two, one of them said that character generation was "as much of a pain as he remembered it being" (or something like that).

I know that after helping 6 players create characters and using some of that time to create antagonists, my brain was pretty well oatmealed...I had to work to get it into gear to help out our latecomer. :)

FYI, apropos of emerald_facets: I just finished Blogathon 2006, and I'm going to go home and sleep now. Maya McCallahan probably won't be posting anything till tomorrow sometime. *zzzzzzzzzz*

*sighs at the idea of playing in a regular game that you're running*
