Background is nearing completion; should be up by tomorrow evening.
A question: I was under the impression that the background and the response to the gold-land/map option were separate; am I correct?
I may simply leave things off in town after the announcement of adventurers needed and my characters intent to sign up, but not pursue the question until after an update (I'm a tad tied up atm; first day of uni after break and the department decides to scrap two of my courses).
There will be a Definite Post after everyone posts their histories ... so you should edit your History accordingly!
Also, it would be wise to go ahead and Sign the Deed (this is legitimate and No Tricks ... hence the name 'Once in a Lifetime' because it is a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to receive Deeded Land for your future!)
