Re: [MLP] Roleplaying is Magic: The Broken Road.
You can actually set up your own channel for this game and design the link to go there, specifically. Doing so would mean the game could be played on the IRC, though it's probably nr a good idea given the time zone spread.
Surprise Obligations (Condition) You have something occur that requires immediate attention, despite anything else you may have been doing. You suffer a -1 to all rolls to persuade any individual that you make promises of timely action to.
When the surprise obligations are resolved (or when all bridges have been burnt, and you have no one with which this condition comes into play) take a beat.
