PbP Haven Monthly Broadcast #8 - October 2010
Wow, I guess I've missed a few months. Just been busy and such, even neglecting my games to some degree.
Still, we're still here and still going strong. Plenty of games operating. I remember back when I first took over on the haven. Almost a year now, and looking back, the haven was on life support. There weren't any active games, nobody was posting or recruiting. I even recall one or two people telling me I should just pull the plug and let it die.
And look at us now. ten or so games active, even if some have sporadic activity, including another game or two that just started. We've suffered some loses here and there (I know Xeadin still has no home internet), but he have a strong and decent community of players.
Old news to cover once more: In case you missed it several months ago, I enabled any member of the group to make use of the group blog as well as upload photos to the group gallery. Might be useful to you, might not, but if it is, have at it.
As for non-PbP game parts of our group, I'll offer yet another reminder that we have an off-topic forum (Haven's Hoarde) for general OOC chatter and discussion of PbP styles, hints, and advice. We also, at the request of a member, have opened a new forum section called The Colosseum.
Still, as always with PbP games, attrition has been nasty of the last few months, with a lot of games fading away. I do know that one of my games which has fallen by the wayside will be returning though.
Hm, anything I'm forgetting... oh yes, standard deal. As normal, I'll make a request of all our members once more. Please, advertise for the haven and let people know we are around. Add a link to the haven in your signature. Invite your friends to stop by and join. Anything you can think of to let people know we exist and bring in more people. The more people we have in the haven, the more games that will be run and the more players we have for the games we run.
Another long running suggestion. If you are a member of a game not being played on the haven, you can still visit. Post in the games list threads, and let people know your game exists. Again, if you have suggestions or ideas for me to add in these monthly broadcasts, drop me a line in this thread - community.wizards.com/play-by-post_haven...
