Gus "Moonlight" Graham is thinking that there's no need for him to get on the David, since the cancer has been diagnosed as metastasising. Next step we may have to wait 24 hours or so - family duties call, and there's some extra rules to playing stuff out that I need to try and summarise. See, Microscope anticipates face-to-face RP'ing, so the author goes with some detail into concepts that most of us already get - for example, it takes the book about two pages to basically say "no autohitting against the main characters you play, but you are free to do anything you want to "secondary characters" -- i.e. NPCs that you create, even if they're not yours. There's also the concept of "pushing", which is essentially voting a piece of someone else's post out in favour of a different proposal. I think we might skip that rule this time round for simplicity and also because I still have to think how we could work it in PbP settings without consuming bales of pages in single-line votes. Either way this all looks ... intriguing, to say the least.
