I give exceptions to people from Odyssey 1, so don't worry about it.
But as to the reason I have, I have to do it, so that there would always be someone the other RPers could communicate with if the others aren't around. I...didn't expect this many people to sign up so fast, lol.
Well, I'm just saying, the new RP doesn't have room for NPCs that much, they aren't in the same area in this RP, the Gold Tribe members are going to a new land by boat with basically only 5 members with them. And all five of them will be characters, unless 5 spots aren't filled. So I can't be 100% sure if I'll be able to give you your NPC. We'll see, though.
Yea, I know what you mean. I once went to Iguacu falls, and we were right under the waterfall, and got soaked!
