Points Arising for November 1672
Players' deadline for November 1672 is Friday 12th February 2021
Next month is the start of a new season. All characters start the month in Paris and all duels must be fought. Any vacant appointments not taken by player characters will be filled by NPCs. However, if a player character appoints the position, they may leave it vacant. (If you have an appointment or a rank that allows you to appoint other characters to posts, don’t forget to do so).
Next month is December and mistresses’ influence will be renewed at the end of the month. A good reason to court a new mistress next month and gain twice as much influence. :-)
I have been forgetting to apply my own rule about postponing duels where one duellist has NMR'd (or been floated). I have started doing so again this month...
I had no orders (“No Move Received”) from the following and they suffered the consequences:
BDH Barry D Hatchett (Ray Vahey) has NMR'd. Total now 1
CdC Conrad de Coverlet (Stewart Macintyre) has NMR'd. Total now 1
EdL Eclair de Lame (Peter Farrell) has NMR'd. Total now 1
LV Lascar Vivrebras (Olaf Schmidt) has NMR'd. Total now 1
NdB Norman de Bastille (Mark Williams) has NMR'd. Total now 1
WdB William de Beast (Simon Peck) has NMR'd. Total now 1
RdM (Craig Pearson) has been floated at his request.
X2 (Mark Nightingale) has been floated at his request.
Toby Nightingale has decided to retire his character as he’s struggled to keep up with the game. Thanks for playing, Toby and maybe we’ll see you back some time.

It is worth sending orders in even if they're a day or two late: it's possible I can still action the orders and will probably be able to use any press. It also reassures me that you're still out there.
Orders (and press) should be emailed to the LPBS orders e-mail address - you'll get an automated response when the message arrives in my mailbox. Please give your name and your character's name and specify actions in full detail. If you want a query answered before the deadline, please use the main LPBS email address.
