So, I have this common situation of a gaming group consisting of pretty busy people, with some other busy people lurking in the wings. Our current Ashen Stars campaign is struggling a bit. Mystery details are hard to recall or use when there could be a gap of three weeks before sessions (as we calling the regular game off, in every case that one of the five players can't make it).
So I thought of a DramaSystem game, with a setting that allows each episode to feature a slightly different cast, from a pool of about ten or so, when missing players are assumed to be away, maybe doing procedural missions (maybe with some outer resolution system of therof). I also thought of taking turns on the GM position, because playing in DramaSystem look like a great fun.
Has anyone did something alike? How may that influence the token/benny economy? Any recommended series pitches that justify unplanned disappearences?
