    Hmm, yes, maintaining interest seems to be the main task at hand. Unfortunately, I dont really know how to do that. :/

    No its the matter of exterminating the humans for their breaking of the treaty :p however there is a bit more behind that. There is a long forgotten history between the humans and the Tardiin... well forgotten by the humans at least.

    Well huh I might change my last post then to explain things better (change who they are encountering). Since you really didn't respond to the attack that much it will be ok. Hopefully that will clear things up some... though it doesn't fix the lack of interest at hand...

    I see, but what matters is what the players know. For example, I kinda thought along the path of the stargate: universe plotline, where I figured the aliens wanted the ship for something, like its technology.

    I'm not saying that's a bad plotline that you put in there, but at the time it just seemed...convenient. I don't know, you probably have a much better handle on the plot than I know, it just kinda looked that way.

    Its not a plot hole... spoilers below

    the Ark jumping CAUSED the aliens to attack. Humanity have been exiled (thus the name of the RP)to Kharak thousands of years ago under a long forgotten treaty that prevented them from ever using hyperspace again. When the Ark jumped they violated the treaty and the Tardiin detected it. Trying to make an example of the humans their emperor ordered the destruction of Kharak.

    I'm not really sure, but some things seem a bit too....convenient? Like say, the aliens happening to attack just as the Ark jumps away from the planet. Things like that sorta seem like awkward plot holes, and I have found that plot holes kinda tend to make people stray away from roleplays. It makes it seem like the story wasn't all that well thought through.

    Smaller and more focused may be better as well. Larger roleplays do take much more control, and odds are one or more people will at some point drop out. Perhaps a smaller more dedicated group would stick with it better.

    What would you do to polish/tidy things up?

    Wondering now if I should have gone more the Battlestar Galatica route keeping it smaller/more focused.

    Hmm, well it seems like we have three options then. We can continue, and hope that the other two people actual do join. Or we could kill the roleplay, which would be a shame, and not something I would support.

    Or we could try to redo it. Take a break and rework some things with the story, polish things up, then start over again and see if that works.

    Whatever you choose, I would hate to see the roleplay get shut down, its a fun concept and world that you have created.

    Thought this might be better to bring into VMs than speak all doom and gloomy in the OOC... honestly I'm not too sure. Its not looking too good for the RP. Garet is going to be leaving, Mansel (sp?) Is MIA (i contacted him too), and not sure if the two interested people are actually going to put up SUs or not.

    I will admit I'm not the greatest GM and Sci Fi on this forum is an uphill battle but damn it I don't want to give up...

    Haha, fair point! Thankfully, I've never had to post a full length post from a cell phone, but I do know that its not fun. By the way, I should have my next post up tomorrow night. I was going to do it tonight, but Olympics, and Shaun White....well, I like my snowboarding.

    I was hoping to post before now, but didn't happen. I know it can be frustrating waiting on someone who seems active enough to post in a RP with them either being online a lot or posting elsewhere. Sadly a lot of my activity lately is through a cellphone and not a computer and you DON'T want to see me post from my cellphone. English is not my strong point....

    Haha, no problem man, I totally understand! I've been there in roleplays before, whether GMing or just playing where posting takes a while for various reasons. Its important to remember that we all have real lives to take care of first, and everything else second!

    I was just wondering because you said you would wrap it up soon a few days ago, so I was just curious. No worries man!

    Just FYI human ships do not have shields yet so that will need to be editted out of your post
