Vacations and Absenses
Please. Please. (And again) Please. Let me know if you will be absent from posting for a lengthy period of time. I'm even making it easy for you, post here, in this neat thread that's a notice and will catch my attention when unread. This allows me to know if you won't be posting for a week. Another thing, if you aren't posting because you feel there's nothing your character can actively do... THEN POST THAT! Post that your character is standing around watching the others do their thing. I don't think that's happened here but that has bogged down so many games in the past. If you still can't think of a single sentence to post then mention it here if you haven't posted in about three days. Of course combat scenarios count as well.

Posting frequency is the biggest weakness of pbp games and can make or break them. Communication can also make or break a game so any confusion, any questions, any lack of posting, let me know, either here or in PM.

Thank you for enduring yet another rant by your friendly DM.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
I'm visiting family before the holiday, and I'm finding myself stuck with a mobile internet connection that, in addition to being a lot slower to work with than what I'm used to, also appears to be making my computer crash and give me Blue Screen of Deaths frequently.  I'll be back home on Tuesday night, so until then, the DM should feel free to NPC Nenor to move things along as needed.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
Just stopping by with a quick message - finals season is upon me, and judging by how intense it's been so far, I doubt I'll be able to participate much here for the rest of May.  My last final this term is on the 27th, and after that, I'll be moving out of my apartment, so that's likely another couple of days I'll be busy.  At the start of June, I'll hopefully be able to return, though I'll be traveling across the Atlantic on June 5th, spending the summer with my lovely lady - still, I should be able to get online and post at least a couple of times each week through most of the summer.

GM, feel free to NPC my character if needed to move the game along, I won't mind at all.

*flushes like crazy*  I won't be traveling, but I will be busy from June 5 to the middle of August as my amazingly sweet fiancÚ will be visiting me during that time.  However, I'll still check in several times a week to post if need be.

Re: Vacations and Absenses
It's kind of expected for a game to slow down during summer months. That said, if you guys can keep the present pace up, which is already fairly slow, we should be alright. If you can manage to pop in a couple times a week I'll be more than happy.

I know I can definitely do that, and I'll nudge him along whenever necessary.  :p
