That isn't what I am saying at all.

What I am saying is that even a fast PbP game, something like 5/day or more is still going to have conversations advance very slowly. Stuff that would take a...

This. I always take six people to a game because I expect to lose a third in a month. Take 6, keep 4 is better than take 4, keep 3.

Even if I don't, hey. 6 people means more interparty dynamics...
