Heh. I just dislike how the only residue of some of these long-running plots is a log of someone's mudsex session.
Oh look. Fantastic ruins. Eerie sounds. Eldritch power seeping from ... oh ... you fucked an aide here. Thought I'd found something new.
I'll admit. I would've given that reaction more credence if you at the very least went over to the arm's logs section and 'read' the log. I mean, I found the scene to be pretty lame as well. But at least I've got data to judge by. You're judging with zero data and proclivity for bias that is considered "cool" on these forums.
lol @ chastising someone for not reading a log you describe as lame and disliking it for the same reasons as you. 'gosh, at least eat the turd before complaining you don't like shit!'
I mean. What kind of plots? The weirdo eldtritch shit? You had one not too long ago, no? Probably six months from now, I'm guessing. That plot somewhat finalized. But shit is going on. I mean you had some pretty cool shit happen to you, how many other people genuinely know about it though?
The lack of a dissemination of 'cool' shit is an issue. But what is the solution? Short of revealing IC info OOCly. Some aspects of what happened to you are still relevant right now to other characters.
Nobody else knows about it. I am not against bringing IC stories OOC to share before the year is up, but not when I know there are people involved who are still alive and it would either harm them or ruin their fun.
I've had two pretty deep storyline runs recently that involved my mundane characters interacting with deep magick stuff. It's quite a bit of fun to have that happen, being the weakest and most ignorant in the room, but also having the most possible to gain from it.
sneazy: Started playing with ArmSolo again. Mapping the zones against newer maps and chasm area mostly looks good. If anyone else is using it, I will make a thread and post results. Else, I'll keep doing my own thang.

mehtastic: Hi everyone. Back for a bit to catch up on how things have been and talk about Arm with a less angry and more mellow voice. Hope y'all have been doing well.

delerak: gonna hijack your thread to start a fight..

mehtastic: Haha. We actually agree more than we disagree, but I'm down to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of multiplaying in general.

thesandlady: Are the days of 250 unique logins a week long gone, or is there a chance Arm could get back to it's old numbers?

mehtastic: thesandlady I think those days are long gone at this point. People will say it's because MUDs in general are on the decline, but there are a few text based games that see slight growth. Arm's problems hold it back from player recruitment and retention.

delerak: arm can get the numbers back up. you need good leaders running clans for one which it seems arm is lacking right now.

mehtastic: Well, that's partly why I said Armageddon can't get back the 250+ weekly logins days that it used to have: because Armageddon lacks good leaders. I would argue that staff actively suppress leadership and don't give players ways to grow into such roles.
