This is a fairly important sort of update, and it’s probably best not to skim it quickly. First of all, I’d like to say that this is one of the most unique RPG’s I’ve ever participated in, both because of its original structure and because of the caliber of players we’ve seen in here. I love playing here. What’s also fantastic, is that we’re an RPG that’s made it after an entire year of being open. Most RPGs see a lot of activity for four to six months or so, and then quietly settle back into oblivion (and usually, that’s fine).

The game, however, is admittedly quieter than it was a year ago (and I’ll be the first to admit that I never thought we’d come this far). Everyone has commitments and other sorts or priorities, and we can all relate to that. It is with this in mind that Aqui and I have decided to do a little bit of restructuring to preserve the community we have here, and that you all have helped to create.

1. From the date of this post, players will be given a week to post for each of their respective characters. If you know you’re going to be exceptionally busy or you just don’t have time anymore, that’s okay! Just let us know! We’d like a clean sweep—inactive players will be removed, and we can start fresher, a little more closer, with who we have left.

2. After the first initial week, the rules will change. Instead of requiring one post every two weeks, we will be looking to see one post every week (which still isn’t too much to ask for), and that everyone has managed to comment at least on one other journal (and hey, it’d be cool if people did logs, too). Players who miss posting weekly will be given a “strike”, and we’ll function on the three-strikes-and-you’re-out philosophy. This isn’t to be strict or to force people together, but to make sure that everyone gets included. If you don’t think you can keep up that level of activity, just let us know.

3. Awhile ago, we also posted a poll to see if the community was interested in group chats. It seemed that the majority was, and that’s a great opportunity to plot and to get to know the folks you may not talk to as much—move beyond your bounds! We are, however, looking for volunteers to START said chats as I am often busy in the evening and Aqui is British and thus in another sort of time zone. If you’re interested and have the time, please let one of us know.

4. And, last but not least, we’re also opening up character applications for everyone. If you were ever interested in applying for a second character, feel free to go ahead!

That’s about all, folks. Take care, and we hope to see you in game. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to ask.
