Using Ivar’s roll from before to continue attacking the door for round 6Arren/Ewan/Helgar/Merion/Nempura/Albin/Findal you’re up. What do you do?
The GM posted this ten days ago. Nempura posted later that day. No one else has posted an action. I'm loathe to drop a post in a game just to extend it's death march on my campaign page.
I'm in at least one other game with all of you except Mr Clint, so I feel comfortable asking; are we serious about trying to keep this game alive or not? If we are, what posting rate can Mr Clint expect?
That will give him an honest assessment to see if he wants to keep the game going as is or if he needs to make changes.
As I've posted in other games, my life took a turn for the busy recently. It's slowed down all of my posting, so when a game doesn't have an update it makes it easy for me to let it slide. I hate letting games die, and don't want to be a part of that. At the same time, I do feel bad on my lack of time/mental energy making my posts less frequent. So rambling aside, I'm here if the group wants to continue.
Sorry, still had in mind we had to wait for the GM to post. Posted my next round's action.
It's been ten days. My question wasn't to get you to post in game. (Possibly only extending this game being on the que ten days longer.) The question was to ask how serious we were about playing this game.
We're supposed to be posting daily. Hard to do when four out of five players told to post, don't.
Mr Clint any opinion here? (I'm a little concerned that I'm the one asking the question.)
I think I'm getting to the point where I'm just kind of fed up honestly.
I don't think someone should need to post in the discussion room (particularly a player!) to get the others in the group to post (let alone daily). That shows that something here is sick.
Some either don't care about the game's posting rate (or the game for that matter), they lost concentration repetitively, don't have the discipline to post, their life has become far busier than they intended since joining, or a whole myriad of these reasons. I get that stuff happens. I get that even some think it's okay to join a post-per-day game and not do it. That's never made sense to me but it happens in every game on this forum. Whatever the reason, the game has halted on many occasions where we are waiting for a particular player to post, and it often is (as RH stated) the majority of people.
Can this game continue and thrive? Yes. Will it ever be an active post-per-day game? No. The evidence of the past has shown that. Except, that is what I joined. I like active games. My opinion is that, for whatever reason (legitimate or not), the players here have shown they cannot commit to the game as presented originally and so I vote that the GM removes the post-per-day requirement and maybe make it once per week. I will leave the game and you can recruit and/or use Nempura as a story-driving NPC, since I don't want to have to wait around any more.
Honestly? I would rather bow out than Nempura. While I do apologize for how life has blindsided me, I do feel responsible for my slow posting rates. I'd rather that I be the one who leave, if it means that the posting rate can stay up and a player like Neumpura can remain.
Oh it's not just you Helgar. I've been slower than you for longer. I got... busy recently. Robert Henry can speak to that, but it's not an excuse, and I've been especially neglectful to this game in the past. I'm not entirely sure why I've had trouble getting invested in this game. It's certainly not the other player's fault, and Mr. Clint has consistently provided excellent opportunities for both RP and combat, with extreme attention to detail. If I had one complaint, it would be that it's been about a year and we haven't leveled up at all. I get that different GM's have different styles for leveling and that it's my fault for playing a spontaneous caster with low combat efficacy, but I just find playing Arren at this level a bit of a slog. My debuffs are pitiful, my direct attacks are non-existent, and there is nothing I provide to the party that someone else doesn't also have, potentially even better than I do!
As respectfully as I can be my fault through inaction, no one else!at this point to both the players and the GM, I think it would be for the best if I stepped down from this game. I do hope that we can play together again sometime, although I completely understand if this experience has put you off.
I don't plan on dropping off the face of the Earth, and will be happy to provide posts as needed to either ease Arren out of the story, or not as desired. A stray crossbow bolt could easily be used to bring her out of the story.

Now I guess we'll wait and see if Mr Clint has any input. He posted last here on the 28th, but he hasn't posted in any of his other games since May 21st.
