one of the problems we face in my FTF games (that keep dying) is playing with players absent. if everyone can't make it to a game we cancel. then we don't play for several weeks on end and then the game dies. so i would like to try to start another game and make sure it lasts a while. i have a few ideas for how to keep it going but i would like some suggestions for how to play with players in absence. i think as the DM one of the problems i have to come to grips with (as far as playing light a player or two) is wanting ALL the players to be present for big events. i suppose if a few big deals happen while players are missing, they'll want to be there for them next time and maybe they'll stop missing games.
