Listening to this now.
They mention things taking a long time to get past the Character Creation/Accomplishments part.
As someone who only runs it in one-shots (a campaign would get kind of samey, I think, and I believe it helps to not have to remember town info over two sessions for players), I get 4-6 people through character creation/accomplishments in about an hour. 2-2.5 hours to find out what’s going on in the town. 45 mins or so for the players to argue about punishments and then resolve the session.
How does this fit with other people’s experience?
