The staff got to talking and discussing how Atricis' IC time runs. For years we have gone on a "3 IC months = 1 IC month" standard for time. This was because, at the time, it was the easiest and worked for a lot of people. However, times have changed, the staff realize that many of those that play here are adults with real lives that come first and can drag us away for extended periods, which also means that sometimes coming back after just a few weeks means a whole season IC has passed and opportunities may have been missed in that time ICly speaking.

So we decided to bring up a poll to the members to see where you guys sit with the possibility of our 3-1 ratio being slowed down so that less time IC passes within a single month. The staff discussed it, and came up with these examples for how things would change, as they also feel like a 1-1 ratio of time is just too slow, so they came up with timing somewhere between 3-1 and 1-1.
1 IC season = 2 OOC Months
1 IC Turn = 8 OOC Months

1 OOC Year = 1 1/2 turns IC (Amount of time for Weyrlinghood)
3 OOC Months = Egg Gestation Period (From Flight to Hatching)
Please let us know how you feel about this possibility, even if it's just by voting in the poll. Since this would be such a big change that staff don't want to do it unless the memberbase supports it.

Aincw, so far it is looking like nearly everyone is in support of the slowing of time IC for Atricis, the staff is going to shoot for having this slowed time start at the beginning of the next month. So in just a couple of days. Unless there are some of you out there who don't want to see this change and would like a chance to voice their feelings on it. You can voice yourself here or by sending a or all the staff a PM if you'd like to keep your words private. If we don't hear any negative statements about the slowdown, however, expect to see it at the beginning of the month.
