So picked up the beginner game. Long time table top gamer never been into RPG's before. Great things is that wife and daughter actually like this system and it was the first that I picked up! Doesn't seem that in this case seem that simple means less challenging or less tactical.
My question is, that since I have been nominated the GM for no other reason than I am the gamer and I want to have a character that is involved in the group, what should that characters involvement be while I am also GM'ing? I am thinking that for now, to keep wife and daughter going and to get my character going, I am thinking some kind of "guardian angel". Gamewise, maybe a faulty droid that has to be told specifically what to do in the game so that he can be involved for now, repaired later when our group expands, so that he can be a full fledged PC. Or, option B, make them spend a destiny or two to have my character give advice or participate in some manner, otherwise he "disappears", like a guardian angel may behave.
Comments, thoughts and/or suggestions? So again, being both a GM and PC is temporary. Has anyone done this before, or anything like it?
