DOWNTIMES INSTRUCTIONS & FORMAT
Everything on this page applies to all players.
BI-WEEKLY MANDATORY DOWNTIMES
All players will be required to submit a "Downtime" every other week by Sunday at midnight. No exceptions.
A Downtime is a LARP term which amounts to a brief summary report to the STs about what your PC has been doing for a set amount of time. In our game that will be every other week. They are a chance to notify the STs of your progress, make some game moves that wouldn't be RPd out, and other maintenance notes about your character's progress.
Failure to submit downtimes will result in a Strike. Three Strikes becomes automatic suspension of the PC for three months from the deadline of the third missed downtime. If this happens more than twice in a calendar year, the PC will be confiscated when it happens a third time.
is the final format to be used on bi-weekly downtimes.
copy/paste it into an email (one per char please, separate) and fill
in the rest.
do not save as a separate attachment. It is cumbersome for the STs,
and also Yahoo Groups Archive deletes attachments, so they will not
archive to the list.
Tip: Start your Downtime on Monday, paste in the below draft
format, and save it as a draft in your email. Then you can add to it
and edit as time goes on, makes it less of a scramble to finish it.

Hour Lounge Downtimes
You are required to complete a separate downtime for each character you have active in the game (please do not combine them on one sheet), and emailed to the STs at 11thHourDowntimes@yahoogroups.com .
Downtimes are a brief
summary of what your character is assumed to be doing during the
course of the week. This can be mundane but you must put something. It
can include actions you made in RP and subsequent follow-ups. It can
be benchmarking a process (such as building influence, cultivating a
contact/ally, learning a power).
They begin biweekly (every other Monday) starting January 17th 2010 and are due by the second Sunday afterwards, at Midnight EST. It is your responsibility to allow for email delays in sending them. Reminders will be sent out on Yahoo Groups on Monday, Friday and Sunday.
There will be no exceptions for submitting Downtimes. If you need help, you should be conferring with an ST prior to deadline. If you are RP-ing frequently during the week, just summarize what your RP was as requested below. If you can’t hook up with players you need, explain that in the DT. It is acceptable to just send in a duplicate of last time with a note about what you needed to do further and why you couldn't do it (people weren't available, etc.)
If you miss a DT, you will
have a strike against you. Strikes expire at the end of each year on
December 31st. 3 Strikes
will result in loss of character, and at ST’s subjective discretion,
possible ejection from the game.
