We can still hold out hope that he hasn't changed his mind and is just taking a bit go get it started.

Reminds me of when I wanted to write a Fire emblem Fates fanfic. When I realized that the story I wanted to tell had a scope as large as Avatar the Last Airbender, I lost basically all of my motivation. It would have been a great story, but I am not the person to tell it. Still proud of the stuff I did write, but it will never see the light of day.
That hits me right in the heart. I had a homebrew tabletop game with 8 players once. It was, I kid you not, a self-insert Homestuck fangame. The 9 of us essentially were playing ourselves, if suddenly Homestuck had happened to us. Only one of the players had ever read Homestuck.

It was supposed to be 6 parts. It took 2.5 years to get through 2 parts. During that time, my players got jobs, dropped out of or finished college, one transitioned, and one's girlfriend forced him to completely separate from the rest of us. Scheduling got harder and harder. My energy faded. The end of part 2 was a good enough stopping point, so I left it there before I could destroy the good vibes completely.

I still have the notes and scenes I wrote for parts 3 through 6. Nobody but me will ever see it. I'm proud of what I've created, but I also know that such a cringe fanfic should never see the light of day. :P

And here I am 8 years and 200k words into a Pokemon fanfiction only just about to hit the second gym in Emerald and still going. Glacially slowly, I admit, but going.

2 pokes per month is a good balance between showing enthusiasm and keeping the pressure low (at least, for me)

I've taken the last week to read this whole thing for the first time. This is very cool (awesome, you might say) and I am glad I took the time to read through what was a huge part of the forums when it was running.

(Sadly several of FFS's links are dead, such as all the dropbox ones.... none of the actual update images, though.)

If there's any possibility of a reboot I'd be very interested, but I understand if the scope of that project ends up being too big.

FFS probably changed his mind. The story he wanted to tell in Warrens was a very ambitious one. I can imagine FFS remembering the sheer scale of the thing and weeping.

Reminds me of when I wanted to write a Fire emblem Fates fanfic. When I realized that the story I wanted to tell had a scope as large as Avatar the Last Airbender, I lost basically all of my motivation. It would have been a great story, but I am not the person to tell it. Still proud of the stuff I did write, but it will never see the light of day.

I came to terms with the end of Warrens years ago.

nah

(i had some stuff come up but i still plan on doing it. about a month or so ago i spent nearly three weeks backing up every single warrens image when i heard imgur.com may start deleting stuff. i heard someone else also made another copy so we're good to go in case imgur starts deleting stuff -- i can reupload it elsewhere as a megaproject then re-link in here if that happens!)

(all i'll say is the next 6-7 years are going to be a very fun time. i will not elaborate.)

Whether this comes back or not, I still think this is the best forum game to ever appear on b12, before, now, and in future.

(As someone running a current one)  Aww.

(But yeah, I think Warrens is better than mine.)
