Campaign Time Progression
When out of game, campaign time will progress at a 1:1 ratio with real time. This will allow PCs to earn gold in town (Profession), research spells, create items (Craft), or perform other tasks that can be best accomplished out of game. Anything that can be accomplished out of game should be taken care of via the forums.
Obviously, during a gaming session, time may progress much more rapidly than out of game so there may be “lost” days. We are aware this is somewhat hard to swallow, after all a character who adventures regularly can effectively live more ‘days’ than a character who’s player takes a month or two sabbatical and stays ‘in town’. The reality is that it is much easier to deal with from a game-play perspective and we foresee no real detrimental effects to the campaign.
If you are still having a hard time with this concept then all I have to offer is, “It’s magic.”
