This thread is in response to consideration by some players on the prolonged inactivity of several participants. I would like everyone to post their intention to continue participating, their inability to, or reasons their participation is restricted but still continuing. This will let us decide what to do with the nations of those participants who are clearly out of the game.

For my part, yes, I intend to continue participating, but between playing through STO and the fact that I just started working again and I'm working long, 10+ hour shifts and jostling around sleep times, that participation will be limited for a while (though I'm still available for mod decisions, don't expect lots of story posts from me).

I will continue participating, even if posts are as infrequent as my flighty muse dictates.

I will also continue participating, even if I suffer from chronic and severe writer's block.

I find it unlikely that I will be able to continue for the foreseeable future. Real world activities take up so much of my time I haven't had time to keep up with the in-game universe for months.

I apologize, but I should most likely withdraw.

I'm still participating but school has resumed and that has to come first. I have a lot of different story arcs that I have planned out but I need to actually get off my ass during my free time and complete them.

I'm still participating and following along, albeit in more of a reactive than proactive state.

I remain.



"The 4th Earl of Hereford led the fight on the bridge, but he and his men were caught in the arrow fire. Then one of de Harclay's pikemen, concealed beneath the bridge, thrust upwards between the planks and skewered the Earl of Hereford through the anus, twisting the head of the iron pike into his intestines. His dying screams turned the advance into a panic."'

Well, I doubt anyone will be surprised that I plan to stay in for the foreseeable future...

For a number of cases, I support leaving the nations in game as NPCs: either because they're heavily involved in stuff that's already taken place, because the player might legitimately want to come back some time a few months from now, or because there's honestly no reason to remove them at the moment- no advantage to be gained by clearing those sectors from the map.

I'm in, as Thompson Hunter can attest to. :P Anyway, I'll participate as much as I can, given time restraints and writer's block.

I return.
My previous reasons for dropping off of the face of the earth have one by one removed themselves, and I now know when I have time to participate through August of this year.

I'm still interested, but I seem to be severely lacking in motivation for the moment.

Oh well. Maybe some exercise will help...

Still here. Just got double-fisted by university bureaucracy and have had a major bout with situational depression. I am for the most part over it, and will try to get back into the swing of things over the next few days.

Anyhow, I am still in, just that I am rather stuck with what to write next.

What about players whose nations aren't on the map?
