sigh Which leaves me, The Fixer, and Amul (when he returns from holiday) as definites. JeanMichelle, I believe, is still on board and just needs to make a character. Weylund is a who-the-deuce knows at this point, but I'm really hoping that he's still on board.
Which raises the question, what do we do now? Do we want to start a campaign with an ASG and 2, 3, or 4 players ready to go? (and speaking for myself, I'm still stoked - I had just opened up MetaCreator on "Covenant" to throw a proposal together when I saw Ravenscroft's post) Do we want to keep working, and put it on hold until we get more players (maybe put outa call on the recruitment thread and on our respective Facebook/Livejournal/Twitter accounts)?
Or, do we forge ahead with who we have now and bring in new characters/players as we get them, to keep from losing any more momentum then we already have? Personally, I favour this option, as it is quite workable with the background we have now. After all, the all-call for new magi to Iberia just went out a season or two ago...perhaps it takes a while for other magi to decide to come to Phoenix, or they want to come once they get other stuff out of the way ("Dangit, woman, I can't leave now, I have this Arcane Connection-range Infernotron MCC to finish enchanting!")
