Okay, I've been thinking about this for a long time, and I'm really sorry. I have no more excuses, no more reasons why Rude can escape/isn't there.
I have no idea what's been happening in the RP. It's hard to keep up with, and I've lost track of it all, so I really should go.
This was my first RP, and it was good, even though Rude was the last character I ever imagined doing.
