RPG - Character Introductions

For the first session, get the players to write a little card and place it in front of themselves, it should contain their name, race, class and some interesting visual feature of the character that other players might ask about.

For a quick spoken introduction, tell the players to imagine an action tv show opening credits. Each characters does something cool, then there is a freeze-frame and their name flashes across the screen. If they need a prompt, could ask for something like 'describe an adventure where your characters used their talents to save the day, etc.

Choose someone who looks like they will enjoy this to go first, to set the mood.
