Using long passage of time successfully...examples?
In his article "Leap Year" (Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game Official Home Page - Article (Leap Year)), Chris Perkins talks about advancing his campaign's timeline by 1 year. Has anyone successfully done anything like this?
In particular I'm interested in those campaigns where a large time leap (months, seasons, years) is deliberately planned by the module or GM, rather than done spur of the moment. How do you get player buy-in and keep them from questioning why they haven't been involved in events? Did you come up a convincing reason why the PCs were on the sidelines or unable to change events? Or did you just hand wave it and let the players grumblings settle?
