There will be a large chunk of time later this afternoon and early evening (GMT) in which I will not be here. My wife and I are going to see Thor [the movie, obviously, not the norse God of Thunder himself. That would be silly. Frankly, he never returns my calls, he missed my last birthday, and he's really just a blow-hard, pumped up tired excuse for a god. He's not even immortal, for God's sake (ummm, so to speak)].

Was going to see Thor (the movie) but the theatre wanted £10 a ticket. I said that's ridiculous and we walked away.

The sounds of someone putting books and dice into a backpack.

"Where are you going?"
"It's Wednesday, you know what I do every fortnight on Wednesdays." The silence is heavy, the tension builds.
"I thought ... I thought that other game" the words are spit out with venom "had been cancelled?"
"No, just put on hold last session." The silence is heavy, the tension builds. Finally ...
"You love that other game more than me."
Sigh, "no, I love you both the same, the other game is ... different, that's all. I thought we had this settled?"
"You may have, but not me. Oh, mister big time role-player, playing me in this forum and that, that slut game over at that whorehouse of a gaming store."
"Don't be like that, that other game is fun ..." as soon as the words were out of his mouth, he knew it was the wrong thing to say. But Chichester said nothing, just standing with its head down, looking out over the back garden. "I didn't mean that you aren't fun ... it's just ..."
"You don't need to explain," Chichester said, its voice low and sad. "Go on, go to that other game, it's none of my business anyway ..."
"Don't be like that Chichester, I won't be gone long ..."
"No, just long enough to have your fun with that ... game ... typical gamer, one game is never enough."
"I'll be back, I swear ..." As ST found his coat, he saw out of the corner of his eye Chichester grab the whiskey bottle. He knew then that Chichester would be drunk and possible violent when he returned in a few hours. This mainly was the reason he never told Chichester about all the other games, it was just too much aggrevation. As the door slams shut, Chichester lets out a mournful cry, and in a small voice.
"But I love you Storyteller, we have something special, those other games ... [of course Chichester knew about the other games, games can always tell] ... can never give you what I do."
You hear ice being put in a glass and whiskey being poured, heavy sighs.

Going out. Don't ask where, can't tell you, would have to kill you, that sort of thing. Probably be gone most of the evening, chat among yourselves. Very Happy If I don't return by Friday, I'll be at the Hotel Americano, Mexico City, room 12b, olay.

Rather than create a thread called PC absenteeism, I thought Id post here.

I'm going to have to take a slight break from this game, until the 21st. After that I'll be back as usual.

Just thought I'd let it be known.

The sounds of someone putting books and dice into a backpack. The ST comes into the room and finds Chichester sitting on the sofa. The ST sighs, expecting the usual arguments and recriminations. "Well, I guess I'm off to my Wednesday game ..." Silence. "I'll be back later ..." Silence. ST turns to leave.

"So, you aren't even going to say anything about your new game?" The ST stops, half-turns ...
"How did you know ... that's not till Friday evening ..."
"Player let it slip." Heavy sigh as ST damns player for his big mouth and easy virtue.
"Player is gay and a known fabricator of lies and fictions." Chichester looks up at this.
"I think they like to call themselves evolution-challenged or something. But apart from that, lying and creating fictions, is that not a Storyteller description itself? Besides, other player is involved too and he's not gay, ummm, challenged." This was true, other player was involved.
"I wouldn't put it past other player to have got player to mention it just to get me in trouble. He is subtle and his ways are sometimes devious." This was true.
"So, you aren't denying that you will be seeing another game?" Chichester looks up, hoping perhaps that ST will deny it; hoping that player and other player are merely executing some plot to advance their PCs. As player is the ST of new game, ST begins to plot to bring new game to its knees. ST smiles a cruel grin as an idea begins to form.
"We will discuss this later Chichester."
"Yes, we will." ST leaves, the idea forming in his mind temporarily pushed out by the chilling tone of Chicester's voice.

I am going to be away from the game for a little while this afternoon and early evening. My wife got a day off work and so we are going to the theatre and out for a pizza afterwards. I don't think this will cause too much disruption to your PCs' plans but, if it does, well, it's just a game for christ's sake. Smile

Following Jacob's logic.

I'll be in France in about 6 hours until Saturday. I'll be able to log on but at a reduced rate.

Basically, be prepared for delays from me - if you're in a conversation with me feel free to duck out and if you're gonna attack me then be aware this will be a drawn out affair.

I will be away for a good portion of the evening tonight, going to see Reginald D Hunter at the City Hall. Should be a good evening.

Sorry about my absenteeism as well. Internet problems. I'll be picking up at an appropriate time as soon as I think of one.

I got a call a short time ago summoning me to the hospital, sorry but I do not have any more details than that, and I will be back when I am back. Again, I have no more details than that.

Blood was taken at 9am and as of 4pm still no work up and results. I had to come home to take care of Jake. Hopefully I'll hear something before I have to call my father-in-law at the usual time.

Thanks mate. Well, we waited and waited and the blood tests revealled nothing. The people at the hospital did not, apparently, do what Ellen's GP wanted them to do, so now more tests and visits await us in the near future.

Since I cant post in the announcement section to update, the Lovely Lady of our dear Admin's life has told me she is getting a router on the way home today and believes this should fix all internet issues so that she can return to us our beloved and dearly missed, all powerful and utterly amazing Admin...
