We're here to tell a story. Your character will spend a little bit of time with us and then move on to many other rich adventurers in a long career. I want you to come away from our time together feeling like your character had an impact, and was impacted by their teammates and the quest they shared. If we do this right, everybody's character is present to best the challenges together, and have fun doing it. I'm here to ensure that the story and the hooks for these things keep flowing.

Posting Expectations and Botting Policy:
I generally expect one post per weekday (Monday-Friday) and one post over the weekend (Saturday, Sunday).

When you know about absences that will affect your ability to fulfill this expectation, please let me know ahead of time. If unforeseen circumstances occur, the below policy will kick in and keep the game moving along. If you are absent without informing on expected return for a week, I will assume you have dropped from the game and recruit-to-replace (through about one-third of a module or scenario) or continue without if the table is still legal.

IMPORTANT Please ensure you have supplied botting instructions on your character profile (see Bot Buddy’s Guide to Play-by-Post Character Botting, page 6 for instructions on how to do this).

I will bot you under the following circumstances:

  • It's combat, and 24 hours have passed;
  • The group needs a skill check from you, and 24 hours have passed;
  • You tell me that you will be gone for a few days, and ask me to bot you.

I prefer not to bot, but I want the game to keep moving. If I do bot you, it will likely be minimal. I won't use player non-renewable resources except in dire situations or with your permission (most likely, Cure Light Wounds charges when absolutely necessary). I may take consensus and/or input from the remaining party when choosing bot actions.
