    Absence List
    If you're going to be absent for a few days, post here! We ask that you try to give us a return date as well as a list of characters that you play. Absences over a month long may not be exempt from inactivity removal.

    If you do not post with your characters for 2 months in a row, they will be inactivated even if there is an absence posted. Notices with no return date or a date more than a month in the future will be removed after one month.

    Please use the form below so that no important information is excluded. Remember that you can post partial (posting notably slow or a break from one specific character) or full absences here!

    [b]Characters Affected:[/b]
    [b]Date Leaving:[/b]
    [b]Date Returning:[/b]
    [b]About the Absence:[/b] Optional.

    What’s the difference between scarce and absent?
    • An absent player, for whatever reason, can’t get on much—if at all—to post or chat. They might be travelling, spawning, hosting company, or particularly buried by work/school. They might need an LOA for personal or health reasons. If you’re absent, we might see you in the box occasionally, and you probably won’t be posting much. Absences can exempt a player from one Activity Check, but absent players may not create new characters as long as the notice is posted.

      A scarce player is still likely to be around, but not as frequently or as long as usual. Posts will be slower but not altogether gone. They might be wrapping up school things but (like Kayte) still around off and on, they might be under the weather but still well enough to internet, or they might just be adjusting to a change in work hours. If you’re scarce, we’ll see you less, but it won’t be so much that we’ll cry ourselves to sleep missing you. Scarce players may still make new characters, but making more than one will nullify your AC absence.

    Characters Affected: all
    Date Leaving: May1st
    Date Returning: July? August?
    About the Absence: lbr I've been scarce the pst few weeks and its likely to continue through this month. Jaxon has tbal games and all sorts of end of the school year activities going on. Not to mention I've done no baby prep for the upcoming arrival of baby Hawke#3.

    I'll be absent for sure from June8th unto whenever we get acclimated with new baby. That is, if i don't miraculously go into labor before induction on the8th. I've been induced with my other2though so I'm not holding out much hope of not having to be induced.

    About the Absence: They called in hospice for my aunt like two weeks ago and now they're calling my mom up to Indiana to be with/help take care of her since she keeps getting weaker.  So 20 hour roadtrip to drive her up tomorrow evening and then flying back next Wednesday and suddenly everything is happening all at once.

    EDITING to extend for the funeral and more travel

    About the Absence: I'm doing a roadtrip/graduation party/Father's Day/huge celebration at my dad's in Minnesota and seeing as I'm driving I won't have much time to post or be on the internet! There is wifi at the hotel & my dad's and I'm bringing my laptop but don't expect many posts as this is the first time in over 5 years all my sisters and I will be together under one roof. Also potentially stopping by Niagara Falls b/c why not & it's not too out of the way on the way back so. #yeah Skype, text, and Facebook are all good ways to get a hold of me (also Nolan.)

    About the Absence: London arch exhibition for two days, followed by an internship interview I'm high key terrified for on the 23rd! Plus then 4 or so hours on a coach so I'll be whacked.

    I owe MJ all my love <3
    Jenny has sold her soul to gods of architecture and is most likely absent to some degree unless otherwise said. If you need me, various people have non-charming ways of throwing stones at me
    Name: Nolan
    Status: Scabby
    Characters Affected: All
    Date Leaving: June 17th, 2017
    Date Returning: July 2nd, 2017
    About the Absence: This internship thingy is turning out to be a lot more difficult than I anticipated and my supervisor thinks it's a great idea to keep piling on unnecessary work for me to do :) So basically I'm stuck researching / writing / filling out applications all day long and it's pummeling my muse into a mushed blob of grossness. I'm finishing it at the end of next month but wanted to give myself some time to feel less stressed about posting for the time being.

    As always, I'll still be able to tend to OOC things such as WW, Buddy, and staff duties along with graphics and such. I'll try to get to my owed posts by the end of the month, though I apologize ahead of time if that does not happen! If I have a thread with you, please feel free to poke me on Skype or shoot me a PM and I'll get to it when I can.

    About the Absence: Tonsillectomy time! I get them out tomorrow morning and have to stay in overnight. I don't know what my internet situation will be in hospital but I'm going to try and bring my tablet because damned if I'm sitting in a bed for 20 hours with nothing to do. My activity once I'm released into the wild again will depend on the pain post-surgery. I'm working on the assumption that it will be pretty horrific but computer will be a good distraction. I may, however, feel like staying in bed for several days. I don't know yet.
    Rune's set skills are phantasmagorical <3
