Man I kind of torn on this issue. On one hand I liked having multiple characters with Brant in Draconia and Monahangay traveling around. It was fun but my other character (an elf who's name escapes me) only got a few builds and fell by the wayside. I'm really not sure which is better/worse but I think having multiple characters helped to separate LoB for other groups like LoR where you can only have one. So those are my thoughts on the issue
I know...I'm sorta miffed...I can see so far the trend is for one. We could still build minor characters linked to our main character though.
I'm just mixed if I want to be a Platinian or a Draconia.
I think people will do fine having one character, and supporting characters (almost like your character's party) could support him/her. I also wanted to ask if it would be possible for players to switch their character's faction? Of course there would be rules, and maybe you'd only be able to do it so many times; but make it so a player can switch sides without killing their character? Just a though.
