In approximately the next month, we're going to be wrapping up the Western storyline and jumping back to St. Erasmus and the 1600s.
If there are any storylines that you need to wrap up, please do so within the next few weeks. If you need help setting anything up, please contact us ahead of time and let us know. We can usually set something up with a few days' notice, but please don't wait until an hour or so before you want to play and hope we'll be able to do it, because we might not.
If you created a character after we jumped to the Wild West, we will be setting up a forum on the board where you can submit a new profile for your character that is suitable to the 1600s. We'll be putting up some guidelines there to make it easier for you.
We are also looking for storyline ideas for the summer. We have our major storyline in mind, but we'd love to get your suggestions as well! These can be for just your character or a small group, or for everyone in the game. We don't need to hear about general personal relationships (character Y is getting into a fight with character Z), but if you have something more plotty in mind (character Y is being haunted by the ghost of her dead terrier), be sure and let us know so we can see if it fits.
If you've been in the game for a while and are looking to pick up a second or third character, or if you would like a one-shot NPC for the storyline, PM us with any ideas you might have. We're going to be setting up a plot that will be heavily sailing-oriented, and we'll be introducing a whaling ship to the island, so new sailors will be welcome.
This will also be a really good time for any of you to get back into things if you haven't played in a while. Please feel free to contact us, and we'll be happy to fill you in on what we have planned so far if you'd like to try to intro a new character or bring your old character back in.
We'll set up the planning forum for new characters as soon as we can. If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to ask.
