All projects should begin with their requirements in this case "Agile user stories".
These allow you to build software that meets the real needs of the users.
Since its their story to start with and not the "Chinese Whispers" or "Broken Telephone" games we all have seen at one point or another.
The 3 stages of Agile Planning.
The daily planning is the Daily Standup or Daily Scrum huddle.
Great for knowing
What task the person committed to complete yesterday and where they stand.
What task they commit to do today.
What risk/roadblocks do they see that could stop today task from happening.
The daily scrum is about snychronization, commitment, and
accountability. Each individual invites self and group inspection on
the work he or she has accomplished the previous day. This daily
ritual is an important input for team adaptation throughout the
sprint. This brief interlude for reflection and seeding the current
day's work is an essential component of Scrum.
This is very beneficial approach IMO.
Whether it is done with OO or RPG has nothing to do with it IMO.
I like it a lot more than jumping off the "waterfall" onto the unseen rocks.

There appear to be shades of Agile, so we've picked up the bits that
seemed to make sense such as requirements before coding, but I don't
believe we are doing standups, sprints or pair programming.
IMO, the parts of agile that would benefit ANY team (regardless of how agile they go) are sprints and standups.
Pair programming, especially for experienced people, would only result in injury and death (and I'm only half kidding there).
