Question for Otherverse America Fans

Just a quick question- if I were to publish an Otherverse America specific adventure path in the next year or two (most likely sometime in late 2013 or early 2014), what should the AP emphasize?

Should it focus on Lifer, Choicer or Fed-Gov characters, or should it be designed around a mixed faction party?

Should the AP be combat heavy, or emphasize investigation, romance, politics, or some mix?

Should the AP venture out into space, either through adventures set in the Near Earth region (The Lunar colony, the belt, Solomon Station) or go father out? Likewise, should the emphasis be on Lifechained or extraterrestrial threats, or on human adversaries and military adventure?

Drop me some comments. Otherverse America is a big enough setting that finding out exactly how you will play with it will help me focus this idea.

Blessed Be,
CHRIS

I believe that the first adventure path should emphasize the main qualities of the setting - it should show what's quintessential about it; later adventure paths can take things out to explore the secondary and tertiary features of the campaign.

That's why I think the first adventure path should focus on the Choicer faction, and that it sould have a mix of combat, investigation, romance, and politics (though perhaps a slightly greater amount for combat, and slightly less for investigation).

Definitely keep it on Earth, on human adversaries and military adventures. That's what I think, at least.
