Maybe that can work? Not sure. But if not, maybe we'll see you again when you have a little more time here and there during the week?
You can pay up cubes and apartments well in advance. You probably will need a regular job to ensure the pay's coming in, or you could donate for 6 months rent coverage (if you're certain you want to stay with us). Doesn't have to be for a corporation, but some plain old job where you don't have to do too much beyond showing up could work, because then it can be assumed you're working throughout the week.
There are also players who seem to come for a couple of weeks, then disappear for a month or three.
These RL schedule matters doesn't rule out great RP for them when they are able to play.
It does help when the character has a "role" or an IC situation which can both explain absences and keep a roof over the character's head.
it's true, housing can be VERY cheap and shouldn't be an obstacle against taking time away from the game during the week.
It's also true that having limited game time can make the reaching of certain IC goals and acquiring certain IC positions for one's character harder or take longer to achieve.
Still, it's a game, and if it doesn't look like your plans for your current character could be achieved with a more, let's say, "casual" schedule, you may still get a lot of enjoyment and still form a lot of IC relationships with a different character concept.
No matter what you decide to do, we'll remain here whenever you want to check in again, under whatever circumstances and with whatever commitment level.
