Thanks for the input guys. We had another prep session last weekend, to finish the details of my test subjects' characters, and to give them a brief rundown on how the game system works.
So far, this is on my plate:
A dapper gentleman-slash-thief by night, a rogue wizard with a penchant for blowing things up, and a drug addicted Lee Rekka seeking enlightenment. Gentleman Thief and Rogue Mage meet Lee Rekka in prison (Thief and Mage got suckered by corrupt police, dunno how Lee fits into all this yet).
I plan on them busting out just as the town they're in are under attack by barbarian raiders (or mercenary brigands). So they basically have to escape the town, and/or choose to stay and help out the townsfolk. I'm fleshing out some of the NPCs that the players can interact with (a militia captain, a temple priest, a farmer with a missing kid, etc), although I'm unsure if I could act out small kids with a straight face.
I haven't planned out the details of the world yet, but the players seem keen on a Discworld-esque world, eg, stone Trolls, dwarves, vampires, werewolves, no elves, etc, so I think I could go with that after the session.
