I logged into Rift, as I do every so often to collect prizes from the Rift Mobile game, and found something extra in my mail box.
If only it worked that way in real life. I know some leaders who have been inactive for more than 36 days.
In WoW, if your leader hasn’t logged in for 30 (?) days, somebody can take over the leadership spot. In Rift, leadership seems to follow more of the “you touched it last!” spirit of advancement.
So Potshot is out and I am in as the captain of the Batsman of the Calamari. Not that the change means anything at all. I won’t be kicking everybody out and stealing the guild.
This is sort of how I end up being the nominal leader of so many otherwise dead guilds. Longevity.
