Got a quick but important Editorial Simulation update for the participants and the audience, so here it is.
Due to other commitments, player Dolores Tinari has decided to drop out of the game. Therefore, her editorial slot will now be taken by new player Kurt Onstad.
As this is happening before the first move has taken place, I see no reason for it to impact on the game. Within the fictional world we are creating, we shall say that Dolores was offered the job but turned it down, and so it was thereafter offered to Kurt.
Everything else proceeds apace. Next move should happen next Saturday.
