On Saturday, I posted that I'm participating in a character creation challenge for January, as in starting Friday. Since then, I've managed to get two other people into it, Craig Oliver at Traveller-CT.blogspot.com, and my dad over at Alesmiter. It's more fund to do this with other people and get some cross-talk. Also, the originatior of this idea is Carl "the Tardis Captain" Stark, with a page on the idea here, and blog as well.
To be honest, I'm kind of looking forward to this whole thing, and getting some good ideas out.
