Hi everyone! :D

Hopefully we will have some exciting announcements for you soon.

In the meantime, there are two things we'd like your opinions on!

Firstly, if there are any subjects (in keeping with the board theme, of course) that you'd like to see some avatars (or maybe even a scheme) for, do comment and let us know - I'll do my best to see that they're all covered for reopening. :)

Secondly, we want to hear your thoughts about Crimson Moonlight, one of our board RPGs. CM has sort of been the poor relation in terms of activity and the like for a while now, and we were discussing the other night what we might do to remedy that. We don't want to retire the game, but we would like to see it pick up, so we'd love any feedback you guys have on the matter. How would you like to see the game progress?

Poll #1241278 What should we do with Crimson Moonlight?

I think you should...

...keep it as a board RP, and try to generate more interest/get more people to join.
...keep it as a board RP, but revamp it a little (new characters, outline tweaking, etc.).
...revamp it as a small-scale freeform (around the size of Destiny's Daughters).
...revamp it as a full-scale freeform (a la Isle of Seven Cities or Ghost Roads).
...do something else with it, which I will now explain in the comments.

Hmmmmmmmmm, this is quite hard. *thinks* Since I'm usually a fighter FOR board RPGs...

I'd either have to go for option #2. More characters, a bit different outline... there's currently only two of the characters that I'm interested in playing... the ones I applied for, haha. And there might be one more... that I would play. I do love the idea of the RPG though, :D

My second option would be going with the last option and say that players should be allowed to create some of their own chars to add to the mix. I know that might be quite tricky for the GMs to work that in, so I don't know if that is an option you guys want to take, but that's somrthing that came to my mind to spicen things up a bit...

*has to think about the schemes/avatar question*

I didn't vote yet... need to do that when I made up my mind, LOL

[?] - she had a notion

Oh people can add their own characters... maybe we forgot to announce that, ooops. People can definitely send in their own characters though.

Thanks for the Mummy suggestion, btw. :) *adds to list*

To be honest, I intended to apply but totally forgot. It's fine as it is for me, but I'd be happy with any option.

An idea for a scheme or avatars would beeeee The Mummy, but but pleeeeeease with Rachel Weisz and not that dumb rip off. :(

That's all I have for now! LOL I'm having a hard time thinking of what you guys already have, *giggles*

I was going to apply for Carly on that one but never got around to it. I think I was slightly put off but how dead the RP seemed and I know that is no excuse, but yeah.

Anyway, I like option 2 (add a few more chars) or it would be very interesting if you could tweak the storyline a little bit and allow people to add some fresh characters, maybe like on CoTR or NF? It always makes it interesting when there are more minds thinking of characters because it creates a completely different type of dynamic. I would keep it as a board roleplay, though, instead of transforming it into a freeform.

As for schemes and avatars, how about a Dark Knight scheme, or a Mamma Mia one with some nice avatars to boot?

[%] - nobody dies today

Yes, eeep, we did ponder that maybe it was partly a self-exacerbating problem. x.x We shall see what can be done - it would be great to have you involved if we injected it with a bit of life. :)

TDK is taken care of, because it's one of the new schemes we already have waiting to release upon reopening, so yay for that. :D Wall-E would be kind of cute though, so duly noted. :)

'nother question. :D

Are you guys planning on making a role call for the RPG too? Cause it seems most of the deadness that is currently the case in the game comes from the fact that a lot of the characters are taken by people that are either inactive or never really post anymore? :$

[?] - doctor woe?

Yes, that is definitely something we had considered - and I think something that we will do, since you're kind of right heh. It can't hurt, anyway!

Yeah, Mamma Mia might be slightly off theme... *shuffles her feet*

Another one that might be cute is the Wall-E movie? It is also a fantasy so that might be quite cute. Just a suggestion :-D
