    Update to all you who wanted them! I have not died, I have not given up the idea, and tomorrow and Wednesday are my college finals and after that I am HOME FREE for the summer. It is at this point that I'm going to start behaving like the Novakid I am with unbridled and directionless excitement and with your help we can hone all our collective ideas into something worth calling a server! I plan to start by inviting everyone who's expressed interest to join me in some kind of web-zone or skype-thing or basically a place where we can possible save our ideas and communicate at the same time. I'm doing a bit of research on how this can be possible but if anyone has ideas on how we can cleanly and efficiently launch this idea then I appreciate the help. IF not I will nonetheless weight the options and come up with something nice :) I'm emphasizing a way we can have a discussion, post that discussion where it's visible to fellow devs, so anyone not present can weigh in on what's being thought up.

    The first subject I'm going to talk about will be the whole In-Game roleplay thing since that seems to be the point where people are a bit leery, and I can't wait to show you guys the methods. And it's not like we can't forum RP too I just want to start character bonding in person :)

    So who's still on the wagon here? :p I'll email everyone even if you don't reply, but this is a shout-out to any lurkers that in the next few days the real planning will begin! Get your RP gloves on, and your thinking wigs. See you all soon.

    I've started a discussion for everyone involved in the thread for further information about joining the collaboration tool I've picked out. I decided to use the website Trello because it seems like an extremely open and user/group friendly system that is free, and which gains more features the more members join. If anyone else wants to join in on this concept please comment and I will add you to the discussion!

    I am only starting in the RP's and I am not the best at spinning a story but, I feel like it wouldn't hurt to give it a shot.

    I had a lot of hope for this community after all of the great reactions I received when I created this board. I know that I am a very organized and motivated individual capable of handling a team of creative and excited members and achieve things as long as we work to a common goal. However in the discussion topic only one person joined the collaboration and people seemed unable to leave their comfort zone for something simple and productive. I'm certainly not upset with people for this happening, just rather disappointed at the lack of follow through and how it seems people like to show they are excited about things for whatever reason, and then when they are asked to act on it, it seems much less important.

    This means that while I still will be creating the server, I am afraid that it looks like the team is not going to happen at the moment. Everyone will be invited to join the server when it launches, and even join in the collaboration at any point, but for now I am considering this a solo operation until other people seem as excited as I am.

    I assure you that I know what I'm doing when it comes to roleplaying communities, as I said in my first post, I've run other guilds and communities in other areas and whenever people are motivated and willing to work for something, it always comes out wonderful. I hope that I can eventually find people who are truly motivated enough to join this effort, and if not I hope the experience I create will be one all my members will enjoy. I will continue to use the Trello board for note keeping on the project.

    Thanks for everyone's interest and I will continue to send invites to the discussion board so that everyone who wants to join the collaboration forum can.

    I'd be interested and up for it. I have a year and a half of MMO RP experience, but little forum RP experience.

    Thanks for the interest everyone but after seeing how the initial people who said they were interested reacted when asked to actually help come up with the idea, it didn't really pan out. I'm too busy to force people to want to do something I consider fun, and now I spend my many starbound hours just exploring :p maybe in the future I'll have the inspiration to try again, and maybe people will be more interested then.

    I never roleplayed to anyone other than myself before, but I am interested in the idea of Live Action Roleplay with Cosplay Elements, perhaps with Real Life Obstacle Courses and Nerfed Swords/Weapons for Safety. As for Online Roleplay, I would never consider it as I don't trust people online usually unless I get to know them first.

    Edit: For the record, my Steam account is "Arronsyaoran" or "Asyaoran20".
    Reddit: Across the Internet, I'm known as either Arron Syaoran or Anuril, depending on the website.
    Commakaze Edit: Also, I believe that Costumes should be more durable, like the clothes in the middle ages of wool and leather(or nylon stockings if the costume involves a secretary/nurse/princess/stewardess), or perhaps thick silk or cotton unlike the cheap stuff you find in party city.
    Because most Cheap Costumes can't even survive the weather let alone wear and tear from everyday use or even obstacle courses.
