AAAAAGH I NEED ANOTHER PC
Still worried about whether having the slayer's band friends and the slayer's monster-hunting friends be largely separate will lead to divisions, although it feels more natural and plays up the "your passion or your duty" theme. Buffy and Angel both build families around themselves, very much involved in their calling... of course, they both have over a hundred episodes to do so.
Some of the vampires now have names and shticks. No casting yet.
Lacking casting for the PCs too, apart from Dianna Agron as the Cordelia-type lead singer and social-fu expert.
