Hi All! We now have our own official Discord server for you to use to get to know other community members and to plan RP experiences, etc as you wish. https://discord.gg/NWhQdQwF Please note that our Code of Conduct extends to the Discord. We also ask that while you can use this method to plan RP with one another, it is not the place for official in game interactions. The Game writers still rely on letters and Airtable submissions for events and the Gazette for official notice of what is happening with your characters and the world. We do not want the Discord to create any advantage for players who use it vs those who stick to analogue. But we do accept that for some Discord is an appreciate way to build community and check in for consent before engaging in in game discourse. If you have any questions or concerns as always please do not hesitate to reach out to us at gm@romancingjan.com

In Event Coordination
In Game: TO BE HELD THE WEEK OF AUGUST 19th and lasting a full week will be the Atlantic Triangle Festival in West Smithfield. This annual festival celebrating the alliances and trade between the nation of West Africa, the East Westlands and the British Isles is always a charming affair, but we expect with the betrothal of Princess Charlotte to the King of Benin, this year will be greater than all those before. We already have confirmation the Kofi will be performing his new drum opera at this year’s festival. Of course there will be the customary Dambe Boxing, Rugby Matches and sporting dog demonstrations. We look forward to seeing the latest beadwork of the Tsalagi while browsing the wares with a Kola- Ale in hand. Out of Game: The above is the Game Mastered society wide event for this month. Please use this forum to coordinate any group activities you might wish to correspond with others about. Or if you have activities or interactions you would like your character to experience at the festival with Player or Non-Player characters, announce it here or for secrets, you can also use this form: https://airtable.com/shrAGXSsv53uC3DHk Please report on your activities by August 31st so that we have time to include them in the September Gazette article! Thank you, Romancing Jan Team

As the title says about 50 of you have not received your letters yet, the writers submitted all of those in the end of last week while I was wrapping up Periodicals so I am just getting them in the mail today with the latest mail sort. My apologies on the delays. Staffing at HQ is being ramped up so these things rely less on me as a bottleneck. Your May letters should be unaffected as the writers are already moving on to those now. Thank you for your patience as we work out these kinks! Athena

Hi all! I just want to drop a quick note based on feedback I have already received from the first newsletter. For one, I am aware it could have used an editing pass. I do intend to pass these along to our contracted editor Amber in the future, but I did get a bit behind on this first one with the surprising overwhelming response of interested players for month 1 and erred on the side of getting it out to you on the 1st vs delaying for an editing pass. I am working on a few things to make the newsletter better going forward both in content, quality, and cost to produce, as this month was more expensive than the subscriptions cover due to miscalculations on my part. I have found a company that will run actual newsprint tabloids for me though that will be more cost effective, more time efficient for me AND actual newsprint! However they do have longer timelines, so I will be posting updated timelines for Newsletter inclusion in the next week, so everyone is aware of how that works. Another thing is that fitting everyone into one paper as we have now reached 125 subscribers will become too burdensome to read and produce, so I am going to add an additional paper for every time we pass another 100 mark. I will give you an option of choosing your primary paper, in a survey to go out in the next week and also an option to add a subscription so you can collect them all if you wish. The intention is that each paper will be a 12 page tabloid size paper with custom content to the subscribers of that paper, and all papers will share about 25% world wide content. The very long list of eligible partners really ate up more of the paper than I intended this time around, so hopefully this gives you more plot and interesting world information to read and start conversations about! I just want to thank all of you for supporting this project so far and all the feedback I have received. I take all of it to heart and am adjusting as we see how this works. This is a completely new format for me and one that was not lending itself to a good playtest, so I am working out the kinks as we go along. One of the biggest things is that I now have writing help and I already have a backlog of wonderful NPC letters written by Elizabeth to go over and approve! So hopefully next month goes smoother. Humbly Yours, GM Athena

Hi Romancing Jan participants and sponsors. These forums are a place for all out of character correspondence in case you want to coordinate character relations ahead of time or exchange ideas on letter writing, image inspirations, etc. Please refrain from any in character exchanges on these forums as we do not want to take away from the "by mail" aspect of this game. Your characters are currently in quarantine after all and dependent on the real world mail system for correspondence and companionship. As always please be kind and respectful of each other and follow our Code of Conduct. Thank you and we look forward to building this world with you! GM Athena
