Here is my suggestion for getting together Wednesday since James can't play.
We'll update and work on those characters. Look up things, answer questions and get our grey cells percolating on those.
Also bring one favorite game moment memory with those characters. If you need to, make yourself an index card with a couple notes to help you remember. We rarely get to talk about old games and those stories really help not only the GM’s memory but insights into what you enjoy as players.
If you have notes about any of your characters I would appreciate having a copy.
