Our Town is like… well, I guess I’m aiming for a game of D&D for people who don’t usually like D&D. I intend for it to be more roleplaying-focused than you might usually get. You are encouraged to take stupid useless feats and random skills from your backgrounds. Your are definitely encouraged to take backgrounds.
You are also encouraged to submit to the DM a list of your character’s friends and family. Just, uh, you know, for verisimilitude purposes. Not like I’m planning anything terrible for them or anything.
