And that is the problem.
Don't wait. When we sit around and wait for somebody to do something for us to react to, the game slows to the speed of the slowest player, who may be absent. For example, Nightblaze hasn't posted anywhere in a week. Hopefully, it's a minor and temporary problem - computer issue, work spike, surprise all-expenses paid vacation to Tahiti - and not something more serious, like a personal emergency or the dreaded Spontaneous Catastrophic Interest Failure. In any case, if we wait for Nightblaze to post, the game may already be over.
This stage of the game will require a lot of roleplaying with NPCs and piecing together clues. It will be slow
, and can move, at a maximum, as fast as CD. CD, I strongly suggest that you make a habit of responding to whoever has
posted at reasonable intervals. You don't want to let one player monopolize the conversation, but if literally days are passing without anybody else contributing, then you have a de facto monopoly anyway. For everybody else, I suggest responding as soon as your character would reasonably do so. If nothing else, just ask a question, or have your character try to figure something out. Hell, we can make sidebar comments to the Fortress of Solitude just to keep the story going! We have no excuse to wait for days and days.
