    Liked it, and I had to really think about some of my old groups characters on this one. One of my longest running characters was a departure I created on a whim. He was a low intelligence strong man from the Soviet Union. He was really loved by the group despite his near complete lack of skills or purpose. I think he was great because you didn’t have to have a complex motivation at any point to play him. Sometimes its nice to just have a dependable screwup in the mix to keep everyone grounded.
