Done deals
« on: December 13, 2003, 11:21:22 PM »
Is there some kind of archive where we could send the games that aren't active any more, and that won't be active ever again?  It seems like Patriot City is that Way, and that Avast Ye! is probably headed there too.  

It's not really a problem having them up, but nobody's really using them and, well, maybe I'm just a clean freak.

Personally i like to print out all the pages, dip them in tomato juice, and then try to give my cat papercuts with them.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Maybe I should have mentioned Back for Seconds instead of Avast Ye! as a candidate for possibly dead games.  It would be more accurate, that way.

I'm preparing a statement. I don't know when I'll present it though. I refuse to put myself on a time line.
Actually I might as well just make a commitment.

I'm not doing AORP anymore, I think. I'm bad about updating, and that's exactly what makes me angry about some Web comics, so I feel bad about not doing it. even when I do update regularly, I don't post much quality. I just don't know where I'm going half the time.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still very attached to the story. I know exactly where i'm going to end up, but htere's a lot of encounters and info that has to be revealed before then, and I keep forgetting the order and what I'm building to in the immediate future. That means I forget stuff, or the wrong things happen as I hurry to post.

I don't have the time to do my writing right now, even, and giving AORP the attention it would need to be quality is not going to help me manage my time better.

So much as I hate to do it (I love some of the characters you guys have done) I'm going to have to finally admit that I'm not coming back to do this regularly enough to make it worthwhile.

I'll try to find the time to write out what I had planned for the future and the consequences of actions and what was happening to some characters that no one knew about (sometimes including the characters themselves). Feel free to go to the AORP forum and reveal any dirty little secrets your character was hiding, if any.

Thanks for playing guys, it was fun. I just can't do it anymore.

AORP is Dead! Long live AORP!

Eric, it has been a true pleasure from the beginning to the end to participate in this game. I know that toward the end some others found they were posting more out of duty than enjoyment, but that was never the case for me as you know -- I never tired of it.

Anyway. I realize my character (Providian) was never central to the overarching plot, but I'd definitely be interested in knowing what, if anything, was intended to happen to him. Otherwise, I respect the decision.

Perhaps at some point I'll attempt running a game here myself. In the meantime, here's hoping I don't completely lose touch.

Goodbye AORP!

I still think you should have just asked for someone else to take over. I'm sure someone would be interested. Arthurian isn't quite up my alley, so i probably would be hesitant to do so.

I don't think anyone was prepared to do so, or willing for that matter.

Ya I'd figure that trying to take over something as epic as AORP wouldn't be an easy task.

Oh, sad.

Saint, let me know if there's anything I can help you with on the write up. It will have to be soon though. My husband and I are moving the first of May, and we probably won't be able to afford internet either. *sob*

...can't afford INTERNET?  What's up with that?  And where are you moving?
