I hate to be a debbie downer Talya but your post reads like "Wah things aren't the way they used to be anymore! EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE!"

Also it's not "dead". Even assuming only 1/4th of those 200 people is roleplaying, that's still enough for some Meaty Fun.


Perhaps not "dead", but those with experience and years under their belt can attest that the population has visibly decreased - I wouldn't know how dramatic, but it's noticeable. That says enough.

The thing is, the community isn't dead, people are rping. It isn't dying, people are just sticking into one band wagon. You need to expand your self a bit more, try new things. You're not interested in religious rp? Give it a try maybe they do things you might like. Remember this is role-play, you CAN create more than one character, do that and spread yourself around and try new things. The guest and friend chat system is there you can try new things. WE aren't dying, we are just sticking to one thing because everyone else is. I am very upset on saying this, I should be proud, but my Clan, is one of the fewest rp group, that is dedicated to the in-game faction, that isn't a kingdom, or rules one and it has been around for four years already, FOUR YEARS. Yet there are rp groups that die out and gets remade, leaders replaced, mine had managed to stay alive for a good four years. I should be proud of this, but I am not, I am really upset that I am running one of the few non kingdom group out there.

If my rp group can do it, than trust me, so can you if you dedicate your time and effort in it. As the title said, Contribute. You feel like rp needs more rp, than make a group of your own. We are in the sixth age, try to make something out of it, make a group dedicated to Zaros wanting to find artifacts or fight against others to help Zaros win the contest. Or an group that is dedicated to the Voids Knights, they interact with Vallut, Godless stuff, and pests that escaped teh island, or like in the quests, were released else where and are going to be used again.

Over all it's not about "Interested on the main topic." It's about the plot, sure some group would be about Saradomin, but they can live long enough to actually, continue in making plots and story, it doesn't need to interact with kingdoms, but it does need to happen, because POK rp, is actually taking over by a lot.

You all need to stop with the "if the RP you want isn't around, go make it" phrase because it really is a poor suggestion. You're probably thinking I'm talking trash, but I will enlighten you why it offers no real solution.

Anyone knows you can make an RP whenever you want. They don't need to be told that, lol. The problem lies with getting support. It doesn't matter if you do your most impassioned project if there isn't enough RPers to get it off the ground. It can die before you've even started. Starting of an RP group seems fairly difficult (granted: outside of popular cliques/POKs/long-standing or notorious groups) because of the population; and even then, it's the same people spread thin across numerous 'samey' groups in the first place.

TL;DR: Stop suggesting "shut up and go rp", you need the interest and people for that.

And how do you think you can get it? by making it, if it doesn't work, then it doesn't work, that's why you try. I am not saying shut up and go rp, I am saying to everyone, they they need to try and be more open minded and try new things instead of sitting on one side of the ship.

And they do try. But this leads back to my point before; if they don't get the support to do something new, it crashes and burns. What are you left with?

I don't think that at this stage making new groups is an efficient solution to sustaining/creating RP.

I don't think everyone would attend nor would I expect them to, but at least saying it's open for all would give them the option. It seems to me that having a guest list for the heads of whatever goes against what we're trying to fix.


And such posts, etc etc.

Whilst perhaps it may be a bit of a mess to organise, it's probably worth hearing what those who are not in any of the catagories have to say. Whether that's done in its own meeting or another form.

Whilst, yes, the big dogs are important to hear, so are the ones who don't, you know, have a representitive.

Just saying.
