adventure length is 9 months or less. GM's should plan accordingly.
☞ There will be imposed no penalty for not meeting the suggested length, but players might judge their GM harshly for failing to meet expectations.
Epic adventures (those in excess of 9 months), must have unanimous player approval, and the GM's Cabal must be notified.
☞ Primarily so we can beg, borrow, and steal ideas, but also so that we can advise one another regarding potential pitfalls and the like.
Following each adventure abroad, the Assistant GM will run in-town adventures for the group for a 3-month period.
☞ During this time, the GM will do what he needs to for the next adventure.If you managed to earn yourself probation:
Your next rating must be above the probation level, or you will lose your position.If you did not receive 100% of player votes:
In the future, A/GMs need to anticipate players potentially being unavailable during the rating period and notify players to vote regardless of status, or some other means of recording their vote. Plan ahead!
