Reading some old emails (2005 era) I came across the initial player pitch for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG I ran; it was set in a high school, and these were the character generation guidelines that I sent around.

  1. There are no ugly people in California; they all got moved to New Jersey.

  2. Cool _is_ more important than clever, thank you for asking.

  3. If there's a choice between saving the world and going to the mall, you are allowed to phone a friend.

  4. Beach Bum is a legitimate career choice.

  5. "Like" is not a word, it's a punctuation mark.

  6. Smoking, drinking and drug taking are almost certainly grody to the max.

  7. No taking the piss ...
    7a (Unless it's funny)

  8. Intellectual isn't a dirty word, but nerd is.

I really should run some more games ...

I don't think it was until around 2007/08 that I played your Buffy game, but I really enjoyed it...

I miss tabletop roleplaying a lot, but until the kids are a bit older I don't think I'll be doing much of it; I need them to be on a tighter, earlier bedtime schedule in order to have people over for dice ;-)

I would travel to play your games, should you run them and be seeking players :)

Would just like to interject that there really are some *very* ugly people in California.
