Greetings Illustrious adventurers!
You will pardon my terrible bad manners in arriving late at what amounts to my own party. I humbly beg your forgiveness.
I thank you all for agreeing to participate in this grand experiment known as Full Light, Full Steam! I hope it will be a rewarding and educational experience for us all!
We made great strides in setting things up for our adventure at our last meeting, but some items remain to be done. Chief among them are certain elaborations that must be made on each character prior to the commencement of festivities. Those of you who have access to the rulebook can find a smashing description of this preparatory activity on page one-hundred-and-six, but for those of you who may lack the wherewithal to peruse this useful resource, I shall summarize in brief.
Each player should take the time to elaborate on their character in text or image. You may write a brief history of your character, produce a suitable work of art depicting your character, or both. An important consideration in undertaking this activity is to make reference to your character's thematic batteries in the course of producing your creation. Doing so allows you to charge your thematic batteries by one level each prior to the commencement of play.
Once these creative endeavors have reached their inevitably satisfying conclusion, you should post them here to the wiki in the "In Character" section for all to observe and admire.
I would like the characters to have their background complete within the week. I am currently deeply engrossed in engineering the first situation for your stalwart adventurers, but you may avail yourself of my assistance should there be questions which you need answered.
Thank you all once again for your participation - adventure awaits!
Mr. W.H.L. Edmonstone
