I'm down if the character is still available. When/how often do posts happen?

It's still available Eb, so you're welcome to join. As for your question, take a look at the forum. We post pretty much every day. Would that be okay for you?

Why don't you read through the previous posts and get up to speed, and then we can include you as soon as possible. Let me know when you're ready.

The logical place for him to go is to his uncle’s bookshop. Let’s assume that he telegrams the others to let them know that he’s back. We’ll try and get him involved as soon as possible, but it might take a little time, so please be patient.

I suppose I could also meet them at the Army and Navy, as surely one of them has left word that they can be expected there Monday evening.

How would you feel about me rerolling the stats, or even just redistributing the skill points a little more to my liking? Leaving the background, profession, and relationships the same, of course.it would be something to do in the meantime.
