Failure happens in games, rolling a 1, getting a Despair on your dice. As I GM I've had a lot of fun with PC failure. However I just recently learned not to have my fun at the cost of the Player's view of there Character. I discuss that distinction in my latest blog.

The Beta Test had these Great Supporting Crew Half Page Sheets. I was surprised not to find them in the Core book. Anyone have a good Supporting Crew Blank Sheets?
