- He is a valued player and if he quits the game, he will be missed
- I won't prevent a new player from joining, but if problems arise they will be dealt with very quickly
- If this new player does indeed target him in-game for real-life reasons, I will be in his corner
We'll welcome all new players, but I'll be keeping a very close eye on the game. It is an Elders Vampire LARP, so there are a few powerful PCs I can ask to befriend his character. I think we can probably cook up a plot that makes him an important lynchpin, too.
Thanks for your advice, all. I'll keep you posted on the drama if any unfolds.
