That could be a nice feature although I would have liked RP instances of mission maps more.

Sorry for the late reminder but BUMP! :whee:

We just need around 10 dollars to fully cover this month. A dollar or two here and there could help us meet this months cost. :grin:

I'm sorry Sindee. I can't make it. I am beat. :sleep: Weekdays are just too much for me.

I'm sorry Ash but I need to bow out. I am only just now getting home from work and I am already beat. Not to mention tomorrow is a workday for me and I need to be solidly in bed by 9.

However, your event is on Satele Shan at one of your strongholds?

I don't want to select "None of these rp options interest me or I don't have time for any of this right now." because it  is just a matter of time not interest. The events sound really interesting, but I am eyeballs deep in learning how to do my job. Pretty soon the busy season will hit. Things probably won't wind down until next year, for me.

During the week is hard for me, but I might be able to make it for 7pm server time.

To anyone still willing to fight the fine fight, I wish you well.

However, I have been at this point before in more than one game. I have been the one advocating to push just a little harder before. I've been the one trying to rally a community before. I have been the one giving everything to buy a community a little more time before. Many attempts and a few bouts of depression later: I failed. It didn't work.

I'm sorry to be a Negative Nancy here, but I'm not going down that road again. I love you all, but I feel the problem is cumulative, so no one solution will fix it. Maybe the devs will get their side together in nick of time. Maybe there will be a big influx of fresh blood. Maybe the community will be getting their second wind. Maybe all of this will happen at the same time... I, however, cannot afford to hold out quite that much hope and put in 120% effort to compensate for this less than ideal situation.

I apologize if my truth is different than some others and it's jarring to hear, but it's my truth nevertheless.

I hate when developer actions push an RP community to this point; there usually isn't a painless solution. One way or another, any action taken is going to be not ideal.

I'm just asking that you take into account that an exodus leaves behind the infirm and the uninterested, and consider strongly whether you should write checks your good will can't reasonably be expected to pay off later.

I hate to say it, but I doubt not leaving the server would help any either. Josh is kinda right. The game is past a tipping point. I don't want to say all the nail are in the coffin, but the chances of them turning things around are slim. Leaving might not matter in the long run, not that I am trying to advocate leaving anyone behind.

Welcome :whee: :wave:

I've observed that fresh faces and places where you can for sure find RP when you feel the need are actually more useful in revitalizing struggling RP communities than only holding events. Making sure that people can get into RP fairly on demand is the key. I've also noticed that getting out of the habit of RPing can make you less flexible for future RP opportunities.

Maybe going to Star Forge periodically can make it easier to not get rusty. Honestly, I like the idea of moonlighting over Star Forge sometime. Maybe we could have a day once a month where we all head over there to RP. I need to see about getting a C9 clone over on Star Forge. I have some characters over there but none that I would RP with.

I know in my case, I just really don't have much time for it.

In my observations, I've notice that not having the time to RP fairly frequently is a real RP killer but not for the obvious reason. I've noticed that when you lack free time for RP, you lose out on a lot of the follow up RP that keeps things going and interesting. You end up with RPs that risk being very shallow meaning your character never really gets into something compelling. Or they stop fitting into the RP whole, an isolated leaf dangling in the wind with no connection to what is going on. This could be a problem for some.

I'm fortunate in that I currently do have some ideas for further RPs to explore at least on Jessak and C9, but then I loop back to the obvious reason. I don't have time. :facepalm:

However, one day I may follow up on Jessak talking with Zenchi about seeing Pehn. Jessak having her "I told you so" moment with Effet about plants being able to burn people (yay inspiration from the news), and C9 updating her organic analysis heuristics.
