I'll try and make sure people submit backgrounds before the weekend, but there might be a few turn-ins at check in which I think I read is allowable, just irritating. Sorry ahead of time 😡
The background is not a huge issue, so don't stress about it. We allow new players some leeway in getting them in within their first few events. It sometimes helps because then once they know more about the world they can put something together. Also we try to avoid hard copies of backgrounds because it makes them difficult to share amongst plot writers. We ask for MS Word docs so we can post them to our directory that way any plot writer can peruse them and write up things for you:)If the newer folks have some idea of what stats and such they are interested in pre game that would be helpful. Someone will be on hand to help you get all your characters sorted.
