GST Requiem

Roderick and Rick have now officially taken over. We’d like to take this time to thank Hannah for all her work.
A message from the new GSTs:
Firstly, the calculations involved in the Feeding rules were expected to be done automatically as part of the character builder.  As an interim measure, there is a calculator here.  You should be able to copy the whole thing into your own spreadsheet.
Secondly, we’d like to get some thoughts from you on what you want from your national requiem GST.  We can’t guarantee to do everything that is asked, but will consider all you send.  If you want to send us some thoughts, here are suggested topics.
What sort of nationally run plot would you like?
Are there any particular Lost Secrets that you are interested in uncovering?
If there was to be a Requiem Weekender, what would you want out of it?
Have you any comments on the Requiem Addendum?
(Please bullet point these to make it easier for us to answer your points)
Is there anything else you want to say?
(Please bullet point these to make it easier for us to answer your points)

Requiem GST Team Elect

GM Election

This is just a bit of notice/reminder. We’re intending to request the NC calls the GM election a bit early as we believe it’s important that the new GM be involved in the 6 month review process. Ideally we’d like the election to be finished before November, as we’ll spend that month planning the review ahead of actually carrying it out over the following couple of months.
This may mean a longer than usual handover period, as our term ends in April 2016, but we’ll discuss exactly when we’re stepping down with the new team. Our expectation is that initially they’ll just be working with us on the review and other elements of handover will take place in the new year.
Given all this we want to encourage anyone considering standing to start thinking about it now. Feel free to contact us with any questions about the role. And we really do recommend standing as a team if possible – we’ve found that having a second person is absolutely invaluable.
Pam and Fran
