ENDGAME ; OOC POST

We're finally here -- the beginning of the end! Just a bit excited yet? Here's a basic outline of the timeline.

The endgame plot will take up the entire month of March, there are 6 stages which are spread OOCly about 4-5 days apart. ICly the stages don't take that long, so when each new IC post is released there will be an indication of how long that stage will last so the characters can react accordingly.

All IC posts will be made in the econtra_events comm, and some stages will be interactive where the characters can reply to that post, and some stages will be reactive, where your character reacts to the events through regular logs and entries. It'll be easy to tell, because on reactive stages (like the first one) commenting will be disabled on the Events posting.

This post will be used for all OOC questions/etc.

Now the curtain rises...
