I have good ideas when I put my mind to something.
I would even be willing to DM alternately for when you are away. I like the idea of DM more than playing for something like this. It definitely fits my writing style more, as inner monologues aren't really my expertise. But describing how characters feel due to environments and afflictions are pretty fun for me.
Let me know how I can help.
That would be wonderful!

I end up 2-4 pages behind sometimes mid-game, just me trying to type in my actions or uploading an image or whatever.
Really I think this is an issue that is easily solved. Set a limit on how far the DM and any one player goes while the other players are either absent or still deciding on actions. In the case they are still there but busy figuring out actions to take, throw in a quick post like "still here, typing out my next action kthxbye" (that probably only applies to me though) while other actions that would necessitate the other players knowing what's going on, stop when you've gone too far. If you're doing something that does NOT require the knowledge of other players that it is happening, make that clear somehow and go on until you're done.
Getting a few pages behind should be no big deal. Shadow's problem the other night was being over a dozen pages behind of things happening that were quite loopy to say the least. I think you've been keeping up and contributing to the game at the pace you're at just fine, let's not prematurely pull the plug on the game because one player bowed out for having a lot more things on their plate and having to keep up with, not just a couple pages but with a whole chapter's-length worth of **** going on.
That's all I have, was there a different post?
