If your character(s) are inactive in the RPG for a month or longer they will be marked as out of town in the registry at Town Hall. This is for the convenience of others who want to rp, but can't becasue they've reached the three places at once limit. Thus they will be freed of the old rp posts that they've been trapped in an allowed to post in new topics, if they want to.   

Anyone who is inactive will have a red asterisk by their characters, unless you have properly given us notice as to why you're M.I.A. 

Now you might be thinking, "Crap! What am I gonna do to get off that thing?" but don't worry it's not as hard as you think. To get out of the dreaded "Out of Town" category, you simply just have to rp somewhere with your character.
