Due to the lack of interest in DOF, the game has been shut down.
A new game is currently being developed, one which takes place in our own universe!  So keep checking for updates to this new game!

    Probably Gonna Close

    So yeah, this isn't really going anywhere and hasn't since day 1. People just aren't interested in old archaic methods of using their imagination anymore, if it doesn't have flashy graphics, people aren't interested. So yeah, game's probably gonna close cause I don't see much point in keeping it open for 7 people, most of which are on the same faction.

    We could move to a bigger site, or try a new system...

    My site only has like 10 people and I keep it open, but then most of them are in different factions. With only 2 / 3 people in a single faction at most.

    And what would said bigger site be? We've already moved once and tried at least half a dozen new systems and it's been dragging on for like a year overall and it's just not gone anywhere. I get the message, text based RPs died in 2002.

    Well, all the Star Wars RPGs section is spammed with Guild sites... Most aren't even guild sites about RPGs...

    And the site I was mentioning were both mine, our sites are the only live Text based Star Wars RPGs... I got another one using a dice system like KOTOR, WEG and WotC... But everyone hates dice even though it was in KOTOR.

    Well, most of your members are also my members and I just double checked the stats, DOF has been *trying* to run for 2 years and yeah, it was always dead to begin with

    Well, like I said, nobody likes using their own imagination, too much work I guess, if it's not flashy video games, nobody's interested, it's just another sad reflection of the times

    Yeah. Too bad really. I enjoy righting it out, you can get more descriptive that way.

    Ultimate Star Wars RPG is on the top, but were like 5th place for members because like I said the rest are Guild sites spamming categories to get members.

    I hate guild sites, I think they are a big factor along with video games.

    Yeah, it really is too bad that there isn't a good repository or something online where people can share the site with others who would actually play. Like I don't know 100% for sure yet if I'm gonna close up shop, cause I really liked where the new stats were headed, but we just need some players! Tris, you don't know anybody who'd play do you?

    Well, RPs overall, even the story ones are generally failing. I mean my community at FT:TUF, once a thriving RP spot, doesn't have any interest in playing RPs there anymore, heck even the little games like corrupt a wish aren't doing so well these days

    I got another idea now... My parent's have a extra site thing on GoDaddy, we could make one site for all of us. One large Roleplaying community, we could divide it into three sections. One is like Ultimate Star Wars RPG, one is like DOF, and one is like Final Destiny...

    It's a long shot, but it may work

    Blue Planet is alternate reality on other RPs, not the RP it's self...

    I mean create a new site, still acknowledging the events from our respective sites. Or we can create a new site molding our sites together.

    No, we'll only lose more people that way. And I'm talking about the trafficshare on BP

    To answer your question DW No, sadly, I don't think anyone I know would play.

    Didn't think so. I'm trying one last thing, but it's not gonna attract new members, if anything it'll just succeed in keeping old ones

    Yeah, moving sites almost always guarantees loss of players

    I have an idea. Try advertising on every RP out there (that has members). I know of multiple DBZ sites that have multiple members. It might be DBZ, but it's worth a shot. And there are Harry P. RPs out there that have many members. Try those.

    Oh, man, this reminds me of Never-Ending Saga. Doesn't it, Nuch?

    Yeah, this reminds me of Never Ending Saga, except the Head Administrator is still here Razz

    And Jodi your Zandar?? Never knew that Shocked

    Despite that KOTOR won over 50 game awards, people hate dice...
