I have a few buddies who're thinking about playing EP as an off-game (from our regular DnD game). Was thinking about an introductory session (just two of them) where they pick archetypes and are egocast into simple robotic bodies (mining synths) in a far off mining colony on a mission for Firewall.
It think it'll be simpler and a good intro because...
1. You start off like they do in Lack with the "adjusting to a new body" (good intro to the setting).
2. While you don't get to play the character as-is (cause the morph is different and you don't have gear) it's also a lot simplier; everyone has the same, simple body and no gear. So no obsessing about what scads of different implants, morph traits, etc do.
3. If you die, or whatever, you don't lose your starting morph.
Any thoughts (good, bad, how it can be improved, etc...?)
Obviously, some character-types will adjust better to the resleeve than others (psi have some penalties, etc). Are there any sample characters from the book that would be totally ruined by it?
