Thanks to TBH for getting this thread up. I'll try to put out a some more information/thoughts about Kingman soon, but as folks are still (hopefully) adjusting/tweaking/creating their characters, I thought these might be relevant when it comes to planning out who your kids are, where they come from, and some of the specifics about their lives. To get a sense of what Kingman is like compared to other ares, I'm including the corresponding stats for Seattle (v5 city), and the USA as a whole.
