The guys over on Fear the Boot have a useful tool for bring an adventuring party together called a Group Template. You can find it on the Fear the Boot/Resources page. It is handy for making sure you have a party which can work together to achieve the objectives of the adventure. The Resources link above has many other good tools for not only running a face to face game but play by post games as well.
