    Is the harem theme the avatar theme for this week or something? Or is it just one of those new "fads" all you young wippersnappers get into these days. I probably missed something.

    I refuse to dress Rot like that anyhow. *shudder*

    It started as a spinoff from the Critical Failure week, with the number of people using Critical Failure (Use Rope) for their avvies, spilling over into the Kiss-or-Kill thread.

    So...I hate to ruin the silly mood, but...

    As an earlier post of mine may have hinted, I've been considering just dropping the Empire for a while now. I know some will be highly disappointed if I do, but...

    At points it seems like some people actually seem to dislike me for keeping it around, and it's rather overwhelming doing it all on my own. I've tried, repeatedly, to try to reduce that overload, but it's never really worked, and what little I did manage in that department always seems to fade away. And, with all I've tried, it just doesn't seem like it's possible to do anything with it other than leave it as is, overwhelming and stagnant and outright causing some to dislike me for it, or simply drop it.

    In addition, it often seems like it's little more than an obstacle to others' plots.

    It's gotten bad enough that I've actually considered just going to the Inside OP, blanking it of any references to the Empire, and deleting the Empire registry posts. And it's hard for me to come up with much reason to keep it, as well.

    And yet it's still a hard decision to make for some reason, so now I'm asking here. I don't really know what to do. I'm presently leaning on dropping it, if only because being outright disliked by some (still not saying any names) for it isn't worth the trouble.

    Do what you think is best, DC. I know that doesn't really do anything for you, but meh. Just thought I'd say it.

    I, personally, think you do an excellent job with it. Maybe find some players who are willing to help run it in positions of power?

    As one other note, I don't dislike you for having the empire. If anything, I like you more for it. I like having a governmental power center in the Nexus. Especially one so well roleplayed.

    I'd kinda like to see it stay but if you think it going away is best then well... *shrug*

    If you could find some people that would actually help and work to take some of the responsibilities of the Empire I think that would be great. Remember, great leaders delegate.

    I'd rather the Empire become npcs than just vanish completely. I like that they exist, and I know it's a tough and often thankless job running the law and order side of the city for everyone. You've done a great job with it, but if it's not fun for you anymore, then it's not.

    DC tried to recruit players to assist in the government stuff a month or so back with no luck. Is anyone interested now?

    I suppose I'll make a character list for myself too.

    Dipsnig Razortooth, the pessimistic, grumpy and irritable goblin leader of MERC. A thief and a spy by proffession. Has two riding wolves: a female one named Viima and a male one named Kullervo, who's Viima's mate and the father of her cubs.
    Wenomir, a master swordsman and martial artist, one of the leaders of what's left of Vigil. All serious, no sense of humor, lots of scars, rather violent.
    Michalson Barring, a half-elven shadowmage from Sigil and a chosen servant of Lady Death, charged with hunting down undead. Has permanent wounds on arms and forehead. A bit of a layabout. Ex-member of AMEN, now a MagCorp employee.
    Dorota Brońska, an alchemist. Works in Erin's Emporium, is in a relationship with her co-worker Crissy. Tried to kidnap Wenomir once and is rahter ashamed of it. Has a flying homunculus named Horatio and a golem named Sizewell.
    Reelshka Trollfinger, a goblin architect. A member and resident fix-it-all of GLoG as well as member of its council. Rather stubborn and unbending in her opinons. Aunt to Brinika and mother to a half-wolfen boy named Tuskfang.
    Anatolij Fedorowicz Eliaszeńko, a Cossack from 17th Century Ukraine who ended up in the Nexus and became a Mortal Coil soldier.
    Brinika Trollfinger, a tiny goblin girl and Reelshka's niece who visits her aunt and friends in GLoG sometimes. Nosy, curious and musical. Followed around by Caretaker the GLoG drone who protects and obeys her. Also chosen to be the Maiden aspect of Mother Eve.
    Sophie Mouchabiere, an Imbued hunter of the Redeemer creed from the World of Darkness. Former social worker. A member of GLoG and the Sacred Order of the Cunningham.
    Thariza Brighthorn, a Charr gladium serving in HALO. Heavily armoured, skilled in protective magic and vehicle maintenance. Not too bright, strangely reluctant to take initiative and prefers to obey orders. Character retired/dead.
    Mark, a Marrenoloth type Yugoloth. Hired by Decker's father to keep an eye out on her. A very chill, friendly guy who likes drinking and playing cards and chess. Carries an oar around and has a boat in an extradimensional space. Character retired.

    What a crazy random happenstance. I come back after a few days away to expouse an idea with just that!

    Right, so this is gonna be an attempt of mine to create a large-scale plot that hopefully will involve a large number of people... If I manage to grab their attention and hold it long enough.

    Right, so, without going into much detail, I was thinking of letting loose the cultists of the All Devourer into the Nexus as a pre-emptive leadup to the actual elder being (Y'know, Ancient before even the first stars were born, Vast and unknowable, that sort of thing.) comes in and tries to nom the place. The cheery bit is, anyone can join in reguardless as, well, it kinda affects all of existance.

    This post is both half a heads-up and half checking for interest in an elder evil coming in and trying to turn the Nexus into a snack.

    So, yes. Comments? Questions? Nay-saying and general befuddlement?

    I was hoping to get more replies, hence why I hadn't responded, but it seems the conversation has been derailed, so I may as well say something now.

    I'm surprised at the positive opinions from some. I only really knew the opinions of the more chat-inclined among us, including at least two who outright admitted they wanted it gone in favor of the...well, anarchy that existed before it came around. Still, I suppose I can try to set something up...First I was hoping to get some people to play as ISF officers, as sometimes dealing with Inside alone is a headache. Been considering making ISF HQ its own thread to make where you're supposed to go for that more clear-cut.

    Also, on a completely unrelated note...

    I like the Empire a lot, and support it as is.
    However, in case there is continued pressure for the death of the Empire and the reinstitution of ANARCHY, I suggest a compromise: Maybe instead of losing the Empire completely, some sort of controlled die-back of influence? While the Empire would still be the official government of Inside, it's deteriorated such that outside of the city center and the other major parts of the city (like the port and near the walls) they haven't been able to enforce things as well as they should have, so this supposed 'Anarchy' is starting to find its way back. There could be a few set aside 'slummy' areas, or even some of the more cosmopolitan areas where crime has risen to the point that the Empire doesn't really have the resources to handle things, so they pretty much let it be and allow all sorts of criminal acts and debauchery happen there, unless something really big and attention grabby happens, in which case they blow your planet up send in the SWAT teams.

    I too think the Empire shouldn't be ditched. At worst, you should turn all of them into NPCs. I could have Grimzig assume a more important role there if you'd like.

    Honestly, I had been the one to originally control the Riot Suppression Squads(basically SWAT), and well, when the Empire changed leadership, the leader of the squads didn't like it.

    Yeah, Edijar was very much the loyalist. >.>

    I'll gladly take over any part of the Empire you wish though if you need help.

    Kris: I thought there was something already like that in place, but apparently the details on the Zones were lost in the conversion between Rebo's old Inside OP and mine. I've put it back now, with more detail than before, I think. So yeah, I kinda figured there was a crime infested slums type place already. >.>

    Moff: Not much to say about the administration side of things at the moment. I was hoping for something of an elected council-type thing in charge, but I'm not really seeing the point of establishing too much about that unless I find enough people with interest.

    Also: I haven't gotten much feedback about giving ISF HQ its own thread. For those unfamiliar with it, the ISF's basically just Inside's police force, with rather heavy paramilitary leanings. Considering lessening those a bit with the justification that some of the heavier ISF equipment is being taken for the Imperial Army since K-Corp, basically the IA's main supplier, exploded, as well. Anyway, the purpose of giving it its own thread would be to provide more of a place to go to sign up, since the offscreen signup and such have generated a bit of confusion in the past. I'm still not very confident about it, though, since all my other recruitment efforts have failed. =/
