    Also: Laura.

    Why wouldn't Fallen get sick? They're living in bodies of clay. Because they're regenerating creatures, they'd get better and/or heal faster than humans, but that's not to say that if they eat Bad Shrimp, they don't hurl for a while.

    Not so much that they wouldn't get sick, as that it wouldn't last for long. I mean, we can heal a flesh wound in days, right? I would think a little Bad Shrimp wouldn't last more than an hour.

    But if we can, then that's cool, it makes excuses for missing games a lot easier.

    Okay, I'm totally not going to say how long an illness might last, because that would be kind of completely story dependent (like how long it takes to heal a flesh wound (surface wounds heal in minutes, not days, I think) or how long a Fallen would be sick with Scarlet Fever). But sure. You get sick. You get better.

    I'd also encourage folks to come up with a *much* better excuse than "I'm not feeling well". That's the Fallen equivalent of telling someone you won't go on a date with him because you have to wash your hair. I mean, I don't believe anyone would believe you that you're *too sick to go to Census*. Maybe, I dunno....and that would spin off a whole new story: Who poisoned Joanie!? Why can't she come to Census!? DEAR GOD, WHAT'S GOING ON!!!?

    OK, so you get sick, but not sick like humans can get, if you can't be sick enough to not be able to make it to census.

    Geez, I can't think of any reason short of Hollow Death why Corral would miss this census. (And my trauma tracks can't handle another Hollow Death, so I sure hope that doesn't happen).

    Transportation went arwy. Little bit harder for Fallen since they can't directly use technology, but many still take a car ride with their Affections or whathaveyou. Car accident. Not fatal, but enough that by the time you've put yourself together and oriented yourself, Census is over.

    Pfft, you were nailed to a tree nearly a week before census. Very Happy

    I like Wade's idea, I can go with some variation on that, and it works for if I'm just late, too. So the characters won't know why I'm not there, but at least (some of) the players and Jill will.

    Paul will also be missing the game, but I don't know what his excuse is. Wink

    I find picking something that you were working on during downtime (and not trying to hide) and having that require your time works well. It means when you do return you have results (even if not positive ones) and since it is stuff your character is working on anyways, it will be in line with what's important to them.

    example: Investigate action on the Shrouds - "I've got a lead on who these shrouds are and my informant will only meet me in Moosejaw. I need to be alert when I meet with him so it will take at least a couple days to get there." - At next game or on forums you can fill people in on the results of your downtime.

    On the other hand, I ended up with a very good, detailed excuse for being late. My new friend/bodyguard got hit by a car on our way to census. The nice elderly couple who hit her was willing to take us to the hospital, and Marley was going to be OK but it took me that long to make sure of it and get to census.

    *sigh*

    Heh, just so long as you don't ever make the mistake of getting within arm's reach - Gluttonies are hard to disentangle from. Smile

    If he was in arms reach, he'd be dead before entangled anyways.
