On p. 45 of the rules, it says that people should read out their secret character goals for all to hear at the start of the game. and then be reminded by the GM not to act on out-of-character information.
Does anyone here actually play it this way? I can see how, with excellent roleplayers with a gift for comedy this might help, but I can also see how this could thoroughly spanner the works. It could lead to players ignoring the group goals and instead concentrating/wasting play time on thwarting the efforts of other PCs to achieve their personal goals, and how out-of-character information could easily be abused.
