Our returned roster then, is Lady Helena, Rufio, Hero and Mayu.
I have pm'd Kat, our RP can go on without her, but be a shame to lose a good character for plot.
I'll leave this here in order to maybe generate some interest from new players (orochimaru as well?) to fill those we've lost.
So-Rufren Mayata is open to new interest!
In terms of the RP itself, I believe it's someone else's turn to post...once (or if!) it's back on it's feet, I'll post up the appropriate OOC and character threads.
