I would like to thank everyone who submitted an application to the game. I have just over 30 RTJs to review and make invitations. I will make every effort to send all invitations by August 3.

Please reply to your RTJ thread and let me know whether you would be interested in playing a potential champion if you are not accepted as a deity.

I have sufficient RTJs of quality that I may be open to a second tier or wave of players, working as Heralds or Champions of the deities.

Champions would be free agents that any deity could hire or recruit, would be able to attain mythic tiers through their deeds, and potentially usurp the position of a deity later.

I simply do not have the bandwidth to run more than 10 deities/kingdoms at this point, but champions would not be as resource or time intensive on my part.

All of the deity invitations have been sent and accepted. Champion invitations to those who responded that they have an interest will be sent after I get the demigods situated.

If you applied and did not receive an invitation and have told me you are not interested in being a champion, you will not hear from me again.

Thank you for the RTJs. They were all very good and fun to read. It made the decisions really tough.

Excellent!  Soon we'll be wandering through the wilderness with our phones out, looking to catch'em all!

Had to travel for work. Slight delay in the champion invites.

In the interests of openness, I need to let you all know that I am now, officially in the short rows on finishing up my dissertation. The document is due to the committee 3 weeks from Monday. I was hopeful that I'd get the green light when I started the game. I had hoped to have everyone melded together by this point, but I miscalculated the time some things would take.

What this means for the next month or so is that I'm going to be limited to posting updates on Fridays and maybe one other day of the week. I'll get to them in a few minutes.

If you're willing to be patient, we'll make it through this phase and I'll be able to implement everything I ever intended. However, I also appreciate that this may seem like I have sold you a bill of goods with some false advertising because you have to wait even longer.

If you want to leave the game, let me know in a PM. I'll remove you, no hard feelings on my part, and all of my apologies for things not working out as quickly as I had hoped.

That said, I'll do everything I can to ensure that you have every opportunity to RP with each other - I'll get the Champions in play and able to talk to the gods this weekend.

dude, I have been thinking up just this time of game for a few years now (I think 7), to have someone else put it together is amazing and I am learning so much already. I cant speak for the others but I am so ok with waiting a little time.

if we can get a little more breathing room for RP, the champions, that would be awesome for me... no pressure or rush though.

I am definitely not leaving so long as this place isn't actually dead.

*edit* thanks for the update.

Re: Announcements
No worries, and CONGRATULATIONS! I hope your defense is short and without surprises! And thank you very much for the update. (Now I don't feel so bad about my own tardiness!)

Also, I will be out of town this weekend.

Re: Announcements
The Defense is scheduled. Nov. 2 at 1 pm. I planned to update on Friday, but I spent most of the day talking to committee members, making sure they were happy with the direction I'm moving as I write up the rest of the document.

Will try to fit in at least a minor post here and there over the next day or two.

Re: Announcements
I just want to keep you all informed as I work toward my deadline. I have not forgotten you or the game, just been so busy, I can hardly think of anything else. Everything is due to the committee Wednesday (yep, like 5 days away, that Wednesday) and then I'll have a bit of pressure let up before I have to get to work on the defense presentation.

I apologize that I wasn't able to get you all situated and running independently before this stuff got tight on me.

Don't worry, and thanks for the update.

Just focus on the presentation on Wednesday so you won't have to do it all over again :P

Re: Announcements
All, changes are taking a little longer than I expected. Plus the formatting people are sort of sticklers.

I expect to press play again this weekend. Really looking forward to being in motion again.
