@Tsar Gatto I tried to imply in my post that there already was a prolonged journey ahead of that last few miles to Barovia. Apparently I failed :(

So... shall I trash and rewrite my post ?

I just posted! And also just read some of the OOC posts. Looks like I probably made the Barovia mistake.

@Tsar Gatto I'm sure I can simply replace my use of the name Barovia with the proper one, but what would that be? Daggerford?

Also, I just read the IC posts made while I was writing. @ypnosi, I would have mentioned Ada in my little combat section, since I also mentioned Olo and Katrina. Apologies. We can just pretend Ronan acknowledged her presence as well for now hahaha.

Don't worry too much about it, it happens. Although I suppose editing her in would also be more than possible

Nah don’t be silly, the post overall was good. I just wanted to clarify so we were all on the same page. You can just change the bits about Barovia to the Misty forest instead.

As much as I love CoS, this is way, way too crowded for me. I had concerns at 6, and 11 just seems... Very overkill.

@Lady Selune

Many thanks for the heads up, sorry you also feel that way and sad to see you go.

It seems in my desire to ensure we have a enough players in the long run that I may have caused a few bumps. Well it’s all a learning experience I suppose!

The last large group RP I was in had around 15 characters and the start and after the first few rounds of posting there were 4 of us left. The one before that had 7 and there are 3 of us after the first few rounds.

Do you guys not have these issues usually? Just trying to gauge the best way to start a large group RP numbers wise for the future. Perhaps better to set a desired number early on.

Anyway, the rest of you, I’m locking the doors!

I feel as if this is sort of chicken and egg scenario. Lots of people generally means that more will drop out. I had an RP with 5 people and a co-gm, and it’s been going for several months having only lost 1, and that was for drama reasons.

@Tsar Gatto

The tags are kind of misleading. You have it tagged as both small group and large group. So it's hard to know what you, as the GM, are looking for.

But then again I'm not the best person to ask. Every group role-plays that I've been part of on this site has fizzled quickly. So in my experience group role-plays just don't work. I'm hoping this one goes better, but we already have people dropping.

While I haven't been on this particular platform a whole lot, this has mostly been my experience in other places as well. I've been a part of a couple group roleplays that panned out to the very end, and they typically started with a group of 8 or 9 or so, and eventually dwindled down to 4-ish. So I totally get why you were hesitant to cut off character applications earlier on.

In the future, it might help to try and do a bit of a heavier screening process for the people who want to participate. Figure out whether or not they seem genuinely interested, or just want to make a cool character and dip. Not to suggest anyone here is doing that, but it certainly happens a lot. I figure anyone who has the patience to chat and build a rapport with the GM a bit prior to diving into the roleplay will be more inclined to stick around around to see the story through.

But, that's just an assumption. Maybe worth a shot going forward. I'd love to see this roleplay completed though, I'm a sucker for DnD-type settings so I'll for sure be one of those that stick around!

Hmm… Unless @ReedeThe23rd posts, I’m guessing all the players have posted at least once now?

Oh, and @Tsar Gatto, I noticed Saachi wasn’t on the character list on the character tab.

The good thing about this story, I think, is that we could continue with as many people as we've got as well as a few less. It would be sad to see them go for sure, but the story could survive. That being said it doesn't seem like anyone is planing to just disappear. So that's a good thing.

I’ll be starting getting to work on my next post tomorrow (and doing a few other bits and pieces I’ve been meaning to do, updating the characters for one).

It is my Tsarina’s birthday this day so have been otherwise occupied.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

@Tsar GattoApologies for the radio silence. I've been grasping at how to frame my posting idea for a bit, and that coupled with some outside frustrations has left me a bit sour on Fayren as a character. I'm gonna be withdrawing from this one, and I wish you all the best.

No problem buddy. All the best!

Everyone else, I shall be working on a post to move us forwards and will have that up today/tomorrow I imagine.

I’ll be accepting @Cotton into the RP, due to the few dropping and prior interest.

Just to update you all, I’m still working on the next post to get us moving I’m afraid. Been brought back to work from furlough so my time is more limited than initially planned, but still should be able to get it done fairly soon.
