Greetings,

pretty self explanatory title.

Our group consists of 3-4 people, 2 of which are a constant in our line-up.

Granted that the ideal setup would be the same 3-4 players for the duration of the campaign, how feasible or advisable would it be for someone to take a day off or be replaced for a given number of games, since this is probably going to be the case.

In other words, should we absolutely wait for 4/4 availability or is it no bigie if one of us skips a session or two?

Thanks in advance for any informed feedback

G.

If someone has to skip a session for whatever reason, the best thing to do (if they don't mind you playing without them!) is to replace them with an Automa for the game. That way, they'll get some points, their charter may grow, and they'll still be viable to win the whole campaign.

If someone misses a game and is not replaced by an Automa, it greatly reduces their chances of winning the overall campaign.

Also, if you prefer not to use Automa, you can just award the player an equitable amount of glory for the game they missed.
