Let's give it another week and then start looking.

I'll be around whenever things start back up again - I have no shortage of patience.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Well. With one month and no GM input or even log on, I'd say this game is dead.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Unfortunately. Should we try to find a new GM ?

Sure, not sure how you do that, but OK.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
I'm not sure I want to go through the process of trying to find a GM, then sorting pre-play things out all over again. If you guys don't mind me sitting on the sidelines a lot during that, I'll continue on.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Hell, as long as we keep our characters, I'm good with starting at the escape itself. This prequel was nice, but it was a bit confusing, as none of us had our equipment, or anything close to supplies. We didn't even know where the ship we were supposed to get was.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Yah, sorry about that.  I think the GM may have wanted me to make Taggart more helpful, but my own version of the prequel did nothing to engender any kind of trust in the current civilization, which he has no reason to believe the other PCs are meaningfully separate from.

Aside from any detours or unpredictable random encounters the end of the prequel is just about here anyways, the amount of skipping would be minimal.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
I'm totally up for a new sequel or just a small fast forward to the point were we have found the ship and escaped the planet.

Should we open a vote to gather everyone's opinion ?

How are you all? Have you found another game where to play?

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Stars without numbers games (particularly revised) are rare, but there are many other games to play.

In my experience, they also seem to be cursed. GMs always seem to disappear on these games, generally right before we actually get into space.

I am/was very happy with the crew that was assembled here. I'll be happy to play again should we manage to figure out how to do so.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
In theory there are ways to swap out GMs in games, but I have never gone to the effort of figuring out how that is done.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Getting a new GM requires a call to the moderator team IIRC. I already had to do that in a old game and it went fluently as soon as we had found a new GM.

The first step would be to post in the GM Wanted forum if everyone is willing to continue this game. :)

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
I am good to pick this up again. You want to take point on this and be our representative for the GM hunt Raalivoar?

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
If most of the group agrees to try and continue with a new GM, I can start the hunt myself. :)

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
In order to settle this once and for all, who's up for continuing this game if we / I can find a new GM?

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
I am rather meh about the idea.

This is the first and only game of SW/ON that I've played in.   I bought the pdf to play in it.

We didn't play long enough for my character to have any real bond with any other character but Alexis, who delightfully helped to develop a back-story.  Overall, it seems far more technical resource-management-oriented than I usually play, though that may be more an aspect of the group.

Really... I'm not invested in this game at all.   I could take it or leave it.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests

I have found Stars without number to be fairly light on the system mechanics, although it does have a bit more temporary resource management than some games of similar complexity.

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
Alright. I will give Malcolm a few more days to answer so we know if he want to continue as well.

As for you Amira, I guess that if you want more roleplaying and mixed-stories between character, we can still try to see if that's what the other players want as well. I personally have no problem with doing something with more roleplaying part as long as we also keep the system mechanics in place. :)

Re: [OOC] Random Thoughts and Leave Requests
I'm good with increasing the RP. I'm more about story than mechanics anyway. I did try and get backstory with everyone, but the game was pushed to start before I could.
