If for some reason you need to take a break from your character (RL issues, going out of town, just needing to take a step back), page a staff member. The staff will put your character on vacation, and then you can make a vacation post. If for some reason a staffer isn't around and you don't have time to wait, send one of us a @mail, and we'll get you setup on vacation in your absence. Note: a true 'vacation' consists of being gone five days or more. If you're only going to be gone for a few days, feel free to throw a quick post up on the Vacation board to let the MUSH know. And come back soon!
