I didn't realize before joining that I would be out of town starting on the 8th and that's when the last Phases of this game would likely be taking place and I wouldn't have the time to be here for it. It's 100% my fault for being an idiot and not realizing it before signing up and playing. I was just too excited to jump back in a game, especially with Sophia having teased this game to me for months. :p
but it's my fault, i'm an idiot. don't trust me with calendars.
