Ok, I have taken the following into consideration:
1. I have precious little time
2. Chaosmark is in exile, Cappo is not the right mood, Alec is buried in schoolwork and Roack and EchoMirage remains.
3. The majority wants a slower game.
Thus I declare the game in a stasis. We haven't even penetrated the first layer of the onion, so I guess there isn't any danger of you guys forgetting the story (so far: bang, crash, boom) and I would rather not that we got any further before the crew is back on track.
I hope I can persuade you guys to rejoin at a later stage! Right now I am putting this game ON HOLD!
