A little off topic for the moment, but, I am still here =P. Unfortunately since all of my games, except one, have died, I haven't had the heart to get into anymore and with me now finally going after a degree, time is tight. So that is why it seems I have disappeared. I still lurk and read stuff though. Maybe one day I will get into things like the "old days".
Oh and thanks for the sentiment Arcane! Good to know someone misses me -chuckles-. I've met my fair share of people who just hate me for some reason -shrugs-. I know I can be too blunt and straight forward at times though. Not the greatest quality over the internet, heh. And yeah, my Betazoid Lusandra was sexy... lol. Besides being sexy, she was very fun to play. I hope I can bring her back at some point.
I can't commit to being a rescue GM, if that is what part of this is about, but I certainly love this idea. Finding good GM's is certainly harder than players. Its a shame to loose a good game for any reason. I have my fair share of games I wish wouldn't have died.
Mordae, is this thread open for constructive criticism/ideas on how to prevent games from dying? I admit to not reading all of this thread, its late for me, so please excuse me if I am asking something you or someone else may have already mentioned.
