This seems like a thread worth resurrecting.
I'm almost always the GM for my group, but for this campaign I finally get to be a player. That means two things:
- I'm playing a character I've wanted to play for years, rather than one that best fits the AP (specifically a Cleric of Shelyn).
- I don't mind making the GM's life hard, because he (like all my players) soundly deserves it.
So I'm not playing an Edgewatch Agent at all. I'm playing a local Cleric of Shelyn/Hobbyist PI, based (very, very loosely) on the character of Father Brown. I'll just coincidentally keep showing up where the actual Agents are and inserting myself into the investigation whether they want me there or not. Maybe I'll occasionally run off to do my own investigation and get myself captured.
