Understood, Sandman. Do you think your schedule will free up in a couple weeks, or it will go beyond that? I can wait. If you’re not sure, then we can go forward with an open recruitment.

Those are good suggestions, Stereo! Stating what could happen during player abandonment will be a good disincentive for that sort of behavior. I might also add a bit about the assumed play style of Fate as far as getting involved (making stuff happen rather than being purely reactive).
