Greetings from Fort Leavenworth! (No, I'm not in federal prison.) Given my crazy schedule lately, the pace is actually working fine with me, because I'm less likely to miss key encounters.
That being said, I'm fine with skipping the more repetitive stuff, as long as DM C is OK with botting me on occasion during more consequential encounters. I still have a few weeks before things settle down. I'm here for one more week, then at Fort Leonard Wood for a week.
I don't know anybody. I DM a play by email campaign, and when I tried to convert it to PbP on these boards, I got a very negative response, so I know my players wouldn't be interested. They're all old geezers, like me.
As an aside, I really don't mind if the game stalls occasionally, as my other game does as well. We're all adults, and real life takes precedence. Losing players is a drag, because it takes time and effort to replace them, but it happens.
The boards are full of players looking for games. Of course, it's hard to find good players (like we all are).
