  1. As a gm, i just run games where chargen is quick and part of play, so pregens aren’t usually necessary.

    That said, i have one idea on the back burner that has specific characters, and in that case they have default genders that players are free to change.

  6. In the past, I would often choose well-known actors for modern-era PC images. The upside was that I could convey a lot about a PC’s intended personality by “casting” them correctly. The downside is that it would often telegraph a hackneyed portrayal on the player’s part. E.g., you use a pic of Keanu Reeves and the player says “Woah” all session.
