...Did you try PM'ing the players involved?

No one's been inactive yet but if they do go inactive i'll do this after an unresponsive PM.

...>_>

PM'ing your players instead of doing anything else is the best option available. Initiating something they have no notice of (as a PM can also proceed to the email of the user if the correct thread options are stated) and its in general, a more polite thing to do along with a public memo of what you'd be doing if the player runs inactive.

I know, as I said above, Tis will be my last resort.

I have a player in Utopia who hasn't been on bay12 since 2 days ago, and another player's action depends on him. He has until tonight to post but I'll put this here just in case.

My RTD is a group of people who are in a zombie infested city trying to create a new world. The inactive player is an alligator wrestler who used to live in the swamp and just killed two cultists. He can go exploring or help attack more cultists in the cafeteria.

Walk into the cafeteria. "Hello, have you seen my DEATH? I'm sure I left it somewhere around here." Then epic brawl.

He has a hunting rifle already and he's a good wrestler.

You should make a GM version of this too. Players asking for updates when their GM goes missing.

That's a bit tougher, especially with games that have a lot of stuff behind the scenes, but I'll definitely consider it.

I wasn't serious, but it could be funny for simpler games.

What is the action of the player that depends on him?

 :o
... The player posted, but mine is the one whose action is dependant on his.  Quite, quite interesting to hear it could have been decided by commitee!   ???

If there is one, then seek until you find it.
If there is none, then never ever mind it.

Particularly if they involve a certain Owl?
