Welp, I have some further
Vertigo has sadly informed me that they'll be dropping out of the RP as well. They felt that keeping up with the one post per week time-limit simply wasn't working for them, and they needed to cut back on the amount of RPs they were currently in - sadly, Alter Oration was one of those. With this, we're now down to Triss and Torran as the only remaining characters of this RP.
To be completely honest, I feel really demotivated right about now. When I came back to the Guild, I was full of energy and rally felt the urge to write and read how people responded to my posts, it was a nice, nostalgic feeling like back when I first started out those many years ago. Sadly, over the course of this roleplay, the trickling loss of the players who expressed initial interest in it, the continued disregard for the once-a-week posting rule, the almost complete absence of any OOC interactions between fellow players... The longer this roleplay has gone on, the more my enthusiasm has drained.
Which is a real shame, because I really, really
enjoyed the story when we started out. I loved all the characters that joined and the way they interacted and viewed the world, it was a lot of fun and each time I read someone's post, I actually laughed and smiled out loud. Until the aforementioned dceline, at least. Now, this is not anybody's fault really, things like this happen. People join RPs, they spend a little time in it, and then they move on (for whatever personal reason). Unfortunately, this was a project I really wanted to do, something I had spent a lot of time working on, planning for, discussing and debating over with others. It was something I had wanted to do even before
I left the guild on my several-year hiatus from all writing. And now, to see all that effort just drain away into the proverbial sewer, well, it's not fun.
We've lost more than half the people and I've lost most of my drive to keep this thing afloat. As sch, to the two remaining people who've actually stuck around until this point, I have two options for you.Option #1
: I will PM one, or both, of you all the relevant information about the story, the various planned arcs, the various important NPCs, and anything else you might need in order to keep the RP going yourselves. You'd have to either recruit new people or move on to a 1x1, but at least this way you can keep the story going if you so want.Option #2:
We put ol' Yeller down. Sad as i is, sometime you just have to close your eyes and bite the bullet. It sucks to let effort and time just go, but hey, sometimes there isn't anything else to do.
So, I leave it up to you two. I'm okay with either option and will adhere to whichever you prefer. Even if just one of you want to continue the RP, that's perfectly fine, I'll help as much as you need me to get things rolling again. But for me, personally, I'm just not feeling this anymore. I'm really, truly sorry.
