Tuesday night, eight o' clock, let's meet up online and take an hour or two to build characters!
Beforehand, check out the shared doc "Earthdawn Campaign Intro." It's got some background on your home that is pretty darn well written if I do say so myself.
There is also an editable pdf character sheet you can download. The weird thing about it is I can edit and save it using Preview but not with Reader. So, if you've got a pdf-viewing alternative to Reader, that would be thuper!
Peter "Blackheart" is also playing, but he can't make tomorrow night so I guess he's on his own.
