I just wanted to point people to a relatively new blog that is fairly awesome, Never See the Light of Play. It hasn't been around that long, so can easily be read from start to finish. In each post, Mr. Finn takes a game system and walks through the character creation process, with commentary. He creates a character as the post goes along and then discusses the results. Finally, he talks about what kind of campaign he might put together using that system. It's a great read and makes me furious that it didn't occur to me as a format for session reports!
