I was just thinking, once supporting characters reach their 13 appearances, they only lack 1 Attribute point and 2 Discipline points. I think it would be really great to use a beloved guest star to replace a fallen comrade. Assuming the supporting character had already "maxed out" (on freebies at least) you could just grant them the attribute point and Discipline points and have a player that lost their character turn the supporting character into a full-fledged PC. I think that would be fun and cool in a "promote from within" kind of way.
Just my random thought as I compulsively check my email for an update lol
