Intercontinental Urban Shadows, part I!
We’re all still getting our bearings, but this session was already a lot of fun. Running US feels like wrestling with a multi-tentacled chaos beast. The sprawling cityscape stories from this hack push me out of my comfort zone – I like my stories small and tight. But I can’t deny that this is the first AW hack where the world feels alive and the possibilities endless. This looks like long-term campaign gold to me.
+ I love debts, factions, corruption - all really great additions that push to a certain kind of story
+- I'm torn on the XP system because it seems to promote talking to NPC's over PC's (if not all factions are represented in your characters). I love xp for debts, though
+ I didn't like the start of session moves, with five players (and with additional archetype moves) it takes a long time before you can start to play. Next session I think I'll start with Love letters instead.
