We recently started trying out MCC with our home group. Since the pandemic doesn’t seem to relent any time soon, I figured that online gaming is better than no gaming at all. Despite my best attempts, I’m not a big fan of playing through video call; it just takes so much to make the session feel like a gaming sesh rather than just a performance. But it is what it is, and we’ll make do.
As I started to get familiar with the rules changes, I was aghast at the simplistic approach to occupation the book offered. There’s a rather extensive foreword in this article detailing my gripes with the rulebook design, and this article is an alternative way to figure out tribal backgrounds for your novice relic hunters.
