(Lamentations of the Flame Princess) Anyone have some sample characters?

Well, it probably takes about 10-15 minutes to roll up a character with it. More time if you need to figure out the spells, less if not.

Probably buying equipment takes the longest time, unless it's hard to make up the name.

With only the fighters getting better to fight, and proper adventures, first level characters are enough for most purposes.

I work about 85hrs a week until the game. And will not be home until then. Just wishing more designers would make up demo kits.

Sorry for being quite snarky there.

Anyway, you might consider letting the demo players roll up the characters. It's not a long process and even though the character mortality might be high, they can be more attached to characters they rolled up themselves.

Depending on what kind of a demo adventure it is, you might even let players make new characters when the characters die in the course of the adventure. I once ran a D&D Cyclopedia game in a quite fast and loose manner, with first-level characters. One of the characters died in the adventure. The player then made a new one, it took like ten minutes. When she was ready, the other characters were just exploring the kobold lair's jail, and conveniently bumped over the newly-created character, who then joined the party.

It looks like the kind of game where you could roll characters very quickly. If you really don't have any time and you don't want people to do it at the convention - which seems like it would be ignoring one of the strengths of the system, but eh - I could make a batch of characters of whatever level in probably an hour or two. Give me a level and about how many characters you'd want and I'll whip some up for you if you're really busy.

I would love to let them make there own characters, but the guys I have signed up took almost 2 hours to make Dungeon World characters the last time we played. And if you have played that game it is literally a just 3 check marks on a questionnaire, they are a little slow.

Impressive. Well, as I said, give me a level of choice and a number of characters you want and I'll post some sheets here fairly quickly.
