Christopher had reply about a question on what the chapters are about:

Quote:

Close! Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 are the GM-facing versions of Chapters 2 and 3.

Chapter 2 is How To Play

Chapter 3 is Hero Creation

Chapter 4 is How to GM

Chapter 5 is [Minion/Lieutenant/Villain/Challenge/Environment/Scene/etc.] Creation

And thus, you might guess that chapter 5 is massive and taking longer than just about any other chapter. And you'd be right. But you'll have it soon!

Thanks! That is exactly what I was hoping it would be about.

Honestly, I'd rather have chapter 5 before chapter 4, even in an incomplete form, since villain creation is the most opaque part of the system so far. I get why that may not be possible, but it would be way more useful for me.

Yeah, our group went ahead and made characters. (All of them but 1 using the Guided method, which surprised me.) Right now, I'm running them through the Stolen Legacy adventure, reskinned to connect to everyone's background. (The Vandals are now irritating junior members of an evil mystic society the Former Villain PC used to be a member of and they're tapping the mystical energies of the Lost World another hero is from.)
