How active is this site? It seems posts have become sparse with the past two years, so is this site just very small or is it basically dying?

It's dying off to tell the truth.

There are a few people who post regularly...sadly it's barely a handful. We get a lot of new people who come in, make an introduction post, and never post again. And Maxwell, give me a day or two, and I'll drop a post in your RP. As one of the very few new people who actually bother to try to join/start an RP, I hate to see your efforts go unrewarded.

I would like to point out though, and this is only from my perspective. In the Sand RP, there's not a whole lot of room for another player to join. You've got your character getting on a vehicle with another character who you've painted to be by himself, and in the middle of nowhere. A place where people are left for dead. Personally, when joining an RP, I look at it from the character's perspective....Why would they be in that location at that time.

I just sort of just introduced him there. I kinda sent him off to Gawain, as there seemed to be more people there than anywhere else. He kind of just woke up there. Last thing he remembered was making a deal with an old man, with the promise of revenge, then everything just went dark. BTW I have a character that he is hunting down, but I don't think she'll make an appearance in any RPs, unless I plan on leaving, or some other major event happens.

I will be looking for a RP as soon as possible. I have a character ready to go but unfortunately I'm have to pull 12 hour shifts at the foundry so it's difficult to find time.

@Maxwell: Well, I guess my question is then, do you want participation in the Sand RP or do you plan on opening something new in Gawain. Gawain is across the ocean from Kahun btw.

@silent: 12 hour shifts can be rough, I've worked a lot of those myself, and I know how hard it can be to RP after them.

Be better if we opened something new up at a port in Kahun. Sorry, I'm use to writing stories and controlling the entire world, not actually RP, so I still need to get use to being in the presence of others.

As far as activity goes, Feila used to be a huge and very popular role-playing forum. At the peak of our activity, people were making about 100 posts a day. But, over time, the userbase became smaller and smaller, and now only a small amount of people write posts.

We're very open minded here at Feila. You can control the world setting in all kinds of different ways. I think Sade even created his own kingdom, but I never really knew much about it. I just know that he was always fleshing it out through role-playing. So, yeah, you can make your own lore and you can create your own areas. You don't have to ask first. Just do whatever you like. Some people like to go by what's already written, while others like to explore new ideas.

It's a shame I joined this site so late. Must have been fun at it's peak.

I'll still be here willing to post until the day Rabid decides to take the site down.

Is there any type of character, or personality that you're looking for to play with yours Maxwell? I have quite a few characters with different abilities and personalities.

Someone who is a very good or bad person would be an interesting thing. A bad guy might hire Maxwell to fight for him or assassinate someone, while a good guy might argue what is good and what is not. Maxwell isn't a hero, nor is he a villain. He's just someone out for revenge. That being said, he'd go with whatever side he agreed with or was paid to fight with. If I had to compare Maxwell to a character, it'd probably be Heathcliff and Guts, only less cruel (former) and less masculine (latter.)

Guts from Berserk (and the Heathcliff from SAO), I assume?
"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. Y'know, Psychologically damaged, almost completely cold and heartless, yet with some attributes of a Byronic hero. Maxwell is slightly less cold and not nearly as cruel.
Maxwell is less physically imposing than The Black Swordsman, as he uses a longsword, and only weighs about 160 lbs. He is, however, an expert with his sword.

I'm also keeping the Sand RP open for those who want to respond.
