In my very limited experience with MYO, it seems like a group's success is largely dependent on having a "full party" with certain key roles. Missing a Stalker or a Gearhead out in the wastes would be a serious handicap. However, I am planning to run a game with only 3 players in a couple weeks (custom story, not the one in the book). Have any recommendation on how to accommodate a small party? Or do you think it won't be an issue? All I can think of is to have the party hire an NPC for wasteland excursions to fill a missing role. In a previous larger game, our group of 5 didn't have a Stalker, so we convinced an NPC stalker to join us just so we could have him make Find The Path rolls. Still, I wouldn't want half the party to be made up of NPCs. Any other creative solutions or tips?
I won't allow the Boss role, but everything else is fair game.
