The Institute: Shadowhunters

This is a generic message to all participants of the 'The Institute: Shadowhunters' Roleplay forum.

As you are aware, many of us are from different time zones. This can create a pause in RPs, which is understandable. Due to this, we have decided to make a rule:

We would like all players, if possible, to choose a cannon character to 'understudy.' This will only happen if there is a roleplay containing more than three people that has to be paused while waiting for one character to get online. We understand that 'real life' situations causes people to not be online, this will resolve the 'death' of the forum and help keep it moving forwards. If neither the cannon character rp'er, or the understudy are online during a main event where they are required, one of the moderators will substitute that character.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this, please message Clare or Lottie (any moderator)

I hope I have made this clear,

Okay, basically if anyones online - ask them if they want to rp. It's late for me, so I'm off to bed, but I'll message you when I can RP tomorrow. Camille hasn't kidnapped Simon yet, but I think it'll be soon
