Hrm, how MUCH earlier would the game be going?
It would be 4PM to 10PM your time. Given the kibitzing and boot time sessions typically have (DnD is sometimes called 'Geek golf'), if you show up at 6 you'll have missed somewhere between nothing at all and an hour and a half. If we're mindful of it, though, we can get things that don't involve your character out of the way first, etc.
Taking occasional individual breaks is not uncommon in chat based games, and generally goes okay as long as people are aware of it. I ducked out of an Exalted campaign regularly for dates. >_>
DOES NOT COMPUTE
In other news, if everyone is ready to go by THIS Thursday, I'll be late. Shouldn't be an issue after that :)
Decided to have the class list in one place >_>
Think the closest thing that will happen this Thursday is maybe coordinating final character design.
Also, if people get character descriptions together, I can try to do renders again. : )
