QuoteOtherwise, about con games: the big lesson I learned at Dreamation was to take all the time I wanted during character creation. Play character creation out fully and unhurriedly. It repays you in investment in the characters, in a big way. If you have to abbreviate the town at the end, that's okay - by 3hrs 15mins you've already revealed the entire town, the players have had a couple excellent "oh ... CRAP" moments, and the PCs have begun to judge. You can spend the last half hour saying yes instead of rolling dice. Just basically ask the players what they want to do about it and have it be so.
