A shift is a 5 hour block of time during which the game is taking place. During each shift a player must choose to either be a player character (PC) or a non-player character (NPC). Players are expected to NPC for at least as many shifts as they PC.
If you are going to be late for a shift or need to leave early for some reason, that shift should be one of the shifts that you PC.
