I'm sorry guys. This is officially dead.

There are a few reasons, namely that this whole multiple player setup isn't my thing, at least not in this configuration. There is also the pretty big problem that you guys all tend to post at 3am. That's been totally fine for every other adventure I've done but I can't stay up till 3am to be the NPCs and such (well I could, but then my holidays ended).

I've been so long in posting this because I've just been really disappointed in the whole endeavor. Build a forum game seemed like a good idea at the time and I really wanted to make whatever came out of it work.

I'm not sure what I'll do now forum-game wise, I miss doing it but I'm torn between doing something totally new(maybe something else the build a forum game thread spat out) and making a new build a colony. I'm still in the sci-fi mood so Mayard and Alucard will have to wait.

So. This kind of game isn't your thing and time zones screwed PC-NPC interactions up.
It's okay.

I hope that this has been a useful experience for you, Lincoln. I felt that this was going to die, because nobody had really clear ideas of what this was going to develop into. Maybe you should railroad things a little at the beggining of the game, so that we don't get these awkward moments of "Hey, I wasn't talking to you" or "the GM said something but we RPed another way".

Anyway, I wish you luck.  know that the next forum game will be great!

To be honest, I liked your colony building games much more ;)
I hope you find a new idea to try out ;)

You guys are just so damn supportive. This is why I do my games in bay12.

Have some bonus Art:

I don't know why but I find that image hilarious.

I think I will just do another build a colony, give you some starting options this time. I'm a bit apprehensive about it since the last one (Helvus) died because of lack of interest. I feel like running stuff by you guys but this thread probably isn't the best place to do that and it doesn't feel like I have enough stuff to ask to warrant a new thread.

You could always go with the space station idea as a build-a-colony thing. Exploring and Repairing an old abandoned station... who knows what could be onboard? Channel some Stargate Atlantis

Or, alternatively/similarly, we wake up in a derelict mining station (or somewhere else where we could get a good supply of resources with work) and decide to make it a functioning home.
