I got the stats done for 2 more of my Ripper scenario PCs: "Doctor" Blackburn, the Irish-American quack, and Professor Dodgson, the legitimate academic. That puts me halfway to my absolute bareass minimum of 6 playercharacters. I'd like more. I don't want to run into another bought of "oops, the monster ate all the PCs". Just such an occurence ended a previous con game of mine a whole 2 and half hours ahead of schedule.
