Weíve been running this game for six month now.

Iíve had a lot of fun. And Iíve met a lot of good people.

However, Iíve gotten several emails from people indicating that they wonít be able to play for a while or have lost interest. Maybe it is the winter thing going on. Maybe it is people losing interest.

The question I am putting to the group is simple. Do you want to keep going? Is it time for a hiatus?

I think it should keep going. I am enjoying it. This is just a very busy time of the year for a lot of people I think. And things come up in peoples' lives.

But I am not a mind reader, so I can't speak for everybody. :-)

Um. Interesting question.

I think it's just that time of year, mate. I'm still there.

Are you yourself a little burnt? You've been busy and had your own stuff to deal with lately. Do you still want to run this game? I hope you will.

I will play for as long as I'm here and there is a game to go to.

Dude...it's winter.

We need a stable location near central Seattle.

We need more ST meetings to provide for player needs and responses many have been waiting for...for a month or so.

We should institute a referrel program...get a friend to come for 4 games, get 2 exp free.

We need a player poll, more midweek NPC activity on the forums (more NPC activity on the forums period), and more out of game events that are not just going to movies.

We need a one off event for a throwdown night to teach many of the new players, and some of the ECC players (including myself), these other ways of thinking about rules interpretation...and to bring to discussion among players and ST's how certain situations will work. For example...how many people know that pavis breaks? Does it break? Is it a one use only, then the second presence power works? Can rituals be canceled once cast? Simple things like that along with just some combat testing and experience...not just a night of number throwing, but a rigged situation where combative conflict in small to mid size groups is the goal. For example...how many combative players know that parry is not a full defensive maneuver option? The list goes on. We can make it fun, reward exp, and most important of all...switch things up a little bit.

We play pretty much two hours every week. The first hour from 6 to 7 we all wait for everyone else to show up. The next two hours are awesome...by 9:15-9:30 we are done and out the door or cleaning up. Announcements can be handed out on pieces of paper and hung on walls for people to read...we can gather up, st's can say "I need to see these people....blah...game on" and we can go from there. Play from 6:30 to 9:00. Show up early or stay late for scenes with other people...ST's can have their meeting from 4 to 6...I'll even volunteer to bring them food (they pay for of course) so they can eat and plan before the game happens.

In honest opinion...the attitude of the ST's reflects the attitude of the players...always. If the ST is forcing themselves to show up, so will the players. If the ST does not wish to be there, niehter will the players.

I'm committed to building this LARP into a community that provides for gamers with lives. Let's find people that this game fits and invite them.

A little smokey the bearish but seriously...only we can improve the game for us, no one else is gonna do it but us. We just need to decided on a course of action, dedicate ourselves to it, and get it done.

I've very glad that there have been so many positive responses about people wanting to stick with this.

After seeing a couple of people drop off, I was starting to wonder.

Don't cancel game.. game is wondeful. I really do think most of us were simply overwhelmed with the hollidays, and that things will probably pick up shortly.

File me under "overwhelmed". I've been busy, and I'm slowly rolling into being even busier as this year progresses. That said, I'd still like to keep playing as long as it's feasible for me - I have a new character concept and hope to return two or three games from now (taking this weekend off, I have standing plans) once I have my sheet set up.

I do think a player poll would do a lot of good, though, and second the suggestion about more NPC action on the boards.

My scheduling for work (Nintendo) has been... erratic at the best of times.
Until it stabilizes, I won't be coming.

You Tremere out there that read this, keep to clan, and don't sluff off!

Put me under "Way too busy for the moment..."

In the past 6 weeks, I've visited Jeff's family and my family. I've moved in with Jeff. I've finished a multi-thousand word co-authorship on Chill 3rd edition. I had my birthday. I got engaged.

You can count Jeff overwhelmed, too. He did all the above except for the book writing but he has a lead in a dance-musical that has its first performance in late Feb.

I suspect things will chill out in late Feb.

Thanks,
Jennifer (Giada) and Jeff (Armando)

Didn't read all the responses, but I'm totally still in! I'm all over playing a Tremere who actually gets to be Tremere-y. Don't cancel!

I do know that the boys and I are good for Game.

I think the biggest issue we have is the changing of locations. I'm hoping that the PUD will be th last change we have to make for a good long while.

On a personal level, i'm thinking that we need to see less interference from outside sources, and let us focus on what we can do on our own. Meaning less interference from NPC's and external threats, and let us work things out internally first. Our enemies should be other players who are right there with something to fight for rather than some ubiquitous nemesis that requires a specific ST to run that those NPC's.

Hope this helps. Very Happy

~Sean

I'm definitely still in, I've even got my new character picked out (since Terrence is blowing in the wind now) and just need to make him early tomorrow. I look forward to game every time it's happening.

Aww, don't cancel. ): I've been out cuz of work, and now I'm overly pregnant and that complicates things. (I'm dedicated to ECC, and two games in one day + a fat chic who grunts every time she stands up is not a good thing xDD)


BUT! I plan to come back after things with baby calm down (HAHA i know, Laugh all you want.)

Until then, I hope to make at least one or two special appearances and cause some trouble!


<3 keep up the good work!
