Unfortunately, due to other commitments, I've not been able to spend the necessary time on either option, and I fear that we're too close to the end of the day for it to be worth pursuing further today, so if I survive the night, I'll pick this up again in the morning.
Now, I don't have an issue with metagaming, and I recognise it's all part of the game. But when I post that I'm on a train, and therefore unable to devote the time and effort required, seeing that being factored into the game meta is disappointing.
Sorry, but the only way to reply is to make this entire post OOC. I beg your forgiveness.
Those comments were not made as part of the game, and we should avoid factoring posts from outside of the game into decisions made in game. Nevermind that your comments imply an expectation that we are following the Status Thread (I know I don't) and that we are all up to date in there before we make decisions here (not likely, given the pace of that thread). Factoring external shit in has been the source of arguments in past games, and in some games has even been explicitly against the rules.
tl;dr: Don't ask us to factor stuff from outside the game into decisions made in the game.
