Am I the only one who misses the earlier times of RP? Back when things were more active? Hell, even when I was a n00b things were fun. I remember looking forward to visiting the forums every day to see who all has posted, and then post in reply to them. Sometimes things were so hectic that something I replied to would be on the second or third page by the end of the hour. Now we're lucky if someone's posted anything in the past month.
I looked back at the original Titan website, and browsed through a dozen other forums. I saw a lot of names that I remember, but I never got the opportunity to talk to these people very often. Gakhan, Azrael, Ember, Lady Lillian, King Jupiter, Carrianna, ScribeDSK, Magerone, Flaminfairy, Boywonder, Frenzie, DSPY, Phaeton, Sporon, Domarr, and lots of others.
Man, what I'd give to be able to go back at least 6 years (if not further). Looking back, I'd even have chosen a completely different character than the one I did. I know that everyone has grown up and a lot of people are in or went through college, got married, and had children. But still, most of the RP'ers I know have quit RPing in order to play MMORPG's like World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, Everquest, etc. I was guilty of playing WoW from May of 2007 to August of 2009, but I'm so glad I quit playing that game. Its like heroine, I swear. You can never get enough of it.
Does this depress anyone else, or is it just me?
My SignatureI am the freezing touch that takes life away,
I am the one whose soul is unclean.
A master of dreams, awakened to the night
I haunt the Astral and reap the mortal lifeThrough the moonlight's mist
I enter your soul
Which withers from purity I defile
I am the Darkness, the Night that lasts forever
