Writing post now.

I see in colors, can only smell in grey,
Blinded by light, I drown in dismay.

See, now thats the problem I've always had with these 'planned' updates; especially when you have them known to others. Things rarely go according to plan because most plans don't last very long, and this is a good example of that.

You place a deadline down for when your gonna update and either you end up risking leaving people behind or not following through and giving some bad impression.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Yes, planned updates do have the added weight of the ticking clock, but leaving updates until 'all have posted' or otherwise unstated periods can run risks for the roleplay as well. Such as- having a single player delay an update due to not posting.

I give you that there is always some leeway to be had in any case- life has a wonderful habbit of throwing the proverbial wrench into the mix at the most convenient times. But at what length of time does the risk of losing the momentum of the story (and attention of your players) outweigh a single delinquent poster? The noted 'needs of the many' if I may quote from a certain pointy-eared greenblood.

It is not often that I get to play advocatus diaboli with you Reever... :p

Revan, just so we're clear, I said Aldegar kicked the man between the shins not in one of them. You know, in that place most people would not like to get kicked in.

Got it, i'll edit that in about 30 minutes then as i need to walk the dog. but the general jist of the update for aldegar will remain the same if thats ok? unless you want me to change the entire thing.

Your the GM, theres little reason for you to change that part of the update on my whims or anything. Though last time I was hit there, it was a bit of an uphill battle to continue on like nothing happened.

It is a rather sensitive weak point no matter who you are; unless your nerve responses are nearly dead or something.
