I like the limit idea a lot.. Sorry if I sound grumpy, but it was a pain in the butt last time when I would try to sum up 60 pages to somebody and they never posted. And maybe the characters should travel to a safer place before the current roleplay is over. Pirate territory is basically where we are at the moment.
Also, I think that in the sequel we should have a limit to how long after the story starts people can join. It got kind of difficult last time, because We were really far along and the new people couldn't understand the plot.
