No Move Received
Players who do not submit their monthly actions by the deadline without notifying the GMs will be treated as if their character has contracted a virulent illness that month, and is bed-ridden. Support costs will still be automatically deducted. If the character does not have enough money to cover all costs and fees currently owed, the associated loss of a Status Level will still apply (entourages, mounts, neighborhoods, etc. will not be abandoned without direct player orders).
These diseases are fairly harmless, but if they drag on, there is a chance that infection will set in and permanently weaken the character. After one monthís illness (after 1 NMR), the illness will do no permanent harm on 2+ on 2d6. This chance increases by 4 for every subsequent month that the illness is not treated (each subsequent NMR). If the illness does harm in any month, the character will lose a point of strength and / or a point of constitution permanently (roll d6: 1-2: strength, 3-4: constitution, 5-6: both). After 4 months of continuous illness, the character is so debilitated that he is removed from the game.
Characters of players who NMR who are at the frontier have death etc. rolled with no modifiers. A -1 modifier to death will be imposed for each month’s NMR after the first.
