I don't know if this will see a whole lot of use. But in other instances I've found out of character threads to be useful. Come here with general questions about the game or comments about the playstyle.
It can also be used if a bunch of people together are trying to figure out what to do next as they put together sonething that could be used as a joint post.
Or really whatever you want.
EDIT: Actually one thing already. Would initial meets be better/easier if there was some kind of holiday or somesuch going on to provide a little extra context and such?
Or I could just get right into the behind the scenes GMing through PMs. But I thought some initial time just to get a feel for posting and interacting would be good.
