I said it was because there's nothing to do, my characters have nothing to do, and a few personal reasons.
Overall it's mostly
"There's nothing to do."
You have to create rp for your characters, I'm sorry there's not am event planned every single day. Actually, more often than not there is because of Kamaoe

Unlike the economy, event trickle down is a thing. One campaign event can trigger a dozen or more player events in reaction to it as characters react and prepare for what's next.

Because those events are the epitome of HW. Lol, i see what you're saying but they aren't immensely effective for everday HW RP.

But they are. A major campaign event draws more players in than any player event. The offshoot player events then also pull people. The increased player count from all this sustains a higher degree of everyday RP since more people are online, making more people interested in logging in (don't tell me there's never been a time you saw only 3 people online and decided against logging in).

Without its campaign events, HW is indistinguishable from any of the other RP servers out there, saving for lower fantasy in general.

I agree that campaigns are needed, i meant exclusively the trickle-down events that result from campaign events

Ian, as someone who quite literally used to log in every day and tried to do that exact same thing, it doesn't always work. I'm the last guy you should be walking up saying "You have to create rp" to.
Outside of the mini events, I tried to make plenty of rp on multiple occasions with every character I had interest in playing at the time. My point being, there's nothing going on and if there is it's typically-
*enters, orders drink, sips.* or *enters, orders drink, socialize with the person closest in small talk, finish drink.*
There's only so much Everyday Tavern RP a guy can go through before getting tired of it.

It is, i do it all the time.

See: Ignoble's ball
I was there and it was fun. There were still less than 20 players, and it was one of the more successful recent events. The server is on a downturn and if you ask most people the answer will be "there's nothing to do." Your own success at remaining active doesn't change that.

What i've also been doing is, with Cymic, having him send letters to folk for certain things like. He's hired someone to subtly fuck with a specific political leader. Also, the recent thing with the music & QP. If people just get a bit creative, they can find ways to attract RP and reach out to people who you don't normally RP with.

It is a holiday. It's Christmas Eve. Families are in town. Food and presents tomorrow. Please, please, please- Can we let this thread go quiet for a couple days? I understand the frustrations and I know that everyone here wants to make their voice heard. But can we at least agree to let everyone have a holiday and enjoy it? It's not fun to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas with my mind focused on the arguments here instead of family, and I know its the same with some other staff.

Can we agree as a collective whole to enjoy our holiday and return to the regularly scheduled discussion on Tuesday?

Dates just happened to line up. I’ll be here next month if there’s still nothing.

No one is raising a pitchfork, it’s just agreement that the people recognizing a problem are right.

(As well, we didn’t stop for Kwanza or Hanukkah.)
