Who's Playing?

Dear SoI Community,

I'm thinking of giving the game another whirl, having tweaked my character concept to something a little more backstory-/vNPC-heavy in hopes of making it more off-peak- and alpha-friendly -- less dependent on in-game code, events, and PCs for plot hooks, interest, and so forth.

However, I can't just jump in now, since I have a support ticket to wait on, so I thought I'd ask: who else is still around? Are there times of day, spheres, or clans that are either particularly active or particularly in need of activity?

Regards,

Elisabeth

There are still quite a few of us pretty active and since things have settled down I believe a bulk of the playerbase, atleast in Utterby, is finally united and moving forward as one. I know the Lodge and the Guard are always looking for members but with a strong backstory to expand upon I doubt you'll have any trouble creating immersive scenes wherever you decide to go.

I'm glad to see you giving it a try once more though. My advice? Play something you'll enjoy and worry less about Alpha, bugs, plots, or clans in need.

Thanks, Eru.

Hopefully I'll still recognize a few faces whenever I manage to get on. :?

I tried getting back into things but I'm struggling now, what with school and everything, plus some bad initial experiences. I think it's just because I play in rather off-peak times. I might give it another shot soon though, once I catch up on all the school assignments I haven't done yet.

Orcs could use someone to spice it up, not sure if its your cup of tea or not.

Someday, I shall figure out orcish RP. Meanwhile, I'm pretty much the worst orc player ever.

The current plan has both myself and Riv playing humanside semi-regularly 4-6 p.m. EST (or possibly a little earlier) and irregularly other off-peak/European times. We're in Bahrain, UTC +3. Starting, hopefully, sometime in the next week or so.

Please don't kill us. :P

I might come back to play here and there as time permits. I want SOI to flourish and I couldn't bear the thought of it going away. :cry:

Come, join us!

Seriously though, the game can only get better with people who genuinely want to see our beloved game grow into something that we can all get throroughly addicted to once again. ;)

after giving the game a two week red card. I'm returning to check to see if things have gotten less frustrating.

I haven't been really. I popped in a few times near the opening but I haven't found the time commitment to get immersed in it. I think that I'd like to, but now that I'm working full time my recreation time is limited.

I have sent the gremlins out to abduct you. I know I should be good and supportive and let you get on with your productive endeavors, but really, if I'm playing, then I can hardly be expected to leave you in peace. :P

(Also, since your playtimes will be limited, please tell us roughly when they are!)

I haven't found any time to play, since applying to PhD programs has sucked up all of my time.

You find time to do what you want to do. :)

I'm not even going to bother explaining how that is logically redundant.

Now if only I could find money to do what I want to do ...

Theoretically they would be post 8pm eastern time on the weekday nights, and possibly random times on the weekends, though I may be starting to work on Saturdays as well.

That'll be post 4 a.m. for Riv and me. :?

We'll have to cross our fingers for weekends, I suppose, unless we start getting up early mornings (we're both working second shift these days).

Well, having peeked in-game, it appears that there are significantly more people playing than this thread might suggest (at least during U.S. evenings) -- they're just mostly not people I know.

Possibly not forum people.

Give it a whirl! You may be pleasantly surprised. 8-)

I've been quite pleased with the game myself, lately! Kudos to both staff and players. :nom:
