If we have a group of 4 and 1 of those players is "ahead" via another Charterstone play group, will that player have much of an advantage?
Also, does it make a difference if that person is just one or two plays ahead, or has played through all 12 sessions?
Will this potentially lessen (or possibly ruin) the experience for the 3 new players?

Thanks!

That player is probably going to have a little bit of an advantage knowing what might be coming up next but as long as he/she is not exploiting that knowledge on purpose, it should be fine!

Agreed, but given the fact that there are multiple paths in this game due to end of game options and the permutations to building and crate purchases, it shouldn't be too bad.

I've played through 9 games and I think there will be a slight advantage to those who have played before. However, without saying too much, you might know what's coming up but that doesn't mean you can exploit it to much benefit. I think as long as everyone has a clear idea as to what scores points at the end of the campaign there shouldn't be a problem.

Knowing what's ahead may lead to a 1 or 2 Glory differential at the end of the campaign. There's not really much they can do differently with advance knowledge, as far I can tell. The biggest advantage they will have is knowing what the results of guideposts are, and working towards winning those to the detriment of everything else in the game. (:

If you are that person with more knowledge, and you want to be nice, try pointing out that meeting the guidepost in game x is REALLY important, or footstomping what looks like it might just be flavortext in future games.
