Another player wants to join my current OSR group, so I provide the same service to him that I provided to the others as well: I offer a couple of pre-made characters. Somehow, these tend to be a success with my players: they adopt the frame work I provide and flesh it out to make their own character based on the little “start-up help” (and even adapt the few lines of back-story). Seems like my provided selections are at least convenient. Well, time for a few new 2nd level LotFP characters! And finally, an opportunity to test a brain-child of mine.
