I'm very happy for you, Vincent. It's a beautiful book. How many possible covers are there, do you know?

20, maybe? I didn't count. Fewer than 24, but not by much.

They're a joy to see and hold. Makes a nice memento of my Gamestorm memories as well!

July 10 at the latest. I'm shooting for mid-June.

So I couldn't find anywhere in this book a section on when you change highlighted stats
Did I miss that or do the same stats stay highlighted from character creation on?

Also: I got my answer from John on making MC moves when a PC v. PC roll fails, but you may want to discuss that in the actual Rulebook.

At the end of any session, anybody can say "hey, let's change highlighted stats." Just go again through the same stat-highlighting process you started with—for every PC, the high-Hx player chooses 1 and the MC chooses 1.

As a player, you're allowed to say "but I want something other than cool highlighted!" or "hey would one or the other of you highlight my weird?" or "okay, but I like my highlights fine as they are," but you aren't allowed to insist. You can tell your preferences but it's not your choice.

That's what we do (except we do it at the beginning of sessions, for some reason lost to the mists of time).

I can't find anything about that in the book. The book implies that you set highlights at chargen and that's that.

Setting new highlight stats every session is really good.
