Some of my players have expressed interest in continuing play with their preseason selves.  
Have you continued on your own?  
Did the radio ever work for you? 

Do you listen to Pink Floyd?

    Ahhh, we didn't really get to do much with the radio system in the Preseason.  My crew has played on from there some, though I doubt we used what would have been official PP plot and such (well, positive of that since I do some dev work on it now).

    The radio system was something we were greatly looking forward too.

    We made new characters and increased the OL to 4.  We made them fictional meta versions of ourselves.  As our peer group and global population is smaller, we have only us to compare.  Therefore we started at 40 in SPEW.  Then we got 80 Gestalt.  (dont yell yet).  For 11 GL each we went to fifth tier in Support basic and trained skills.  So each player has 10 things they can do...Lastly the players opted to bump up to 50 in a stat or two..
    .
    Paradigms were not picked yet but will be used.
     
    We start with a base 10 in general supplies, food, Misc. (DP dice will remove this fast)  Complimented by two harpoon guns with one round each.  200' rope, 1 walkie talkie (wet needs to dry), 10 gallons of water, two sails, and a small first aid kit.  

    We start shipwrecked with minimal food and resources.  

    It is 1500 or Time 7.5...
    we will awake on the beach at high tide to the sounds of a passing CDC helicopter.  It is a two mile walk to the remains of civilization.  Small fires can still be seen throughout the city with none left to tend them.  The fog starts to roll in with a wet mist.  Was that a Raptor?  Where will we head?  

    I will let you guys know next week...

    Did I forget anything before we start?

    I think you pretty well have it.  Probably a little overpowered on the character side, but you note yourself that you are aware of this in the description.  OL 4 will likely be pretty intense, which can be a blast to be sure, and your higher powered team should be able to cope with this for a fair bit.  I like the low supplies to start things out, keep the characters desperate at the start is a good way to get rolling - make them work up.  The start is nice as well, puts them a bit off balance as things get going.

    Look forward to see how it plays out for you.
