I have a Mandarin resit this Friday, hence the lack of much happening beyond writing complicated pictograms and trying to remember the tone and meaning for what is basically the same word.
But there's still something I can update on. When I initially planned my game, it was going to take place on Rampart. I had a bunch of reasons behind this, such as the social conflict, oriental flavour and others, but one thing I needed was player infodumps.
So I made a tourist sheet, distributed by the Guilds and costing only few Crests each.
Obviously it's unfinished, but I think you can see the way I'm trying to provide details though both infodumps and style.
And yes, the Mandarin symbols actually mean stuff. And should be grammatically correct...
