I've been away from Stars! for almost 10 years now, but I've come crawling back. It looks like the community is dwindling though. How often do new games get started? I'd like to jump into a human game in a few weeks once I've gotten back into the groove, but I'm worried seeing the lack of new games started in recent years. Is hosting easy enough I could jump into it myself? Would there be enough players that would join? Hoping this game doesn't die out, I've never found another 4x that quite itches the spot that Stars did.

I'd be interested; I'd need a while to get a race ready depending on the game parameters, but I'm not super-depressed anymore so I'm not as much of a drop hazard.

There have already been two games opened up this year, so you might find it a bit difficult to find many players for the next couple of months.

I don't think FA started, has it? Most of those players might be up for a game.

I think it's in quantum limbo due to Altruist up and vanishing; if I were signed up there I'd wait to see what happens there before joining another game.

I think the best way to get a new game is to start a new game.

I am signed up there and getting a little twitchy. Let's see if we can get a response from Altruist there. If so, dracul104, you are the target audience for that game. Maybe you could start cooking up a race for either that game or some other game.

Alright, if Altruist doesn't come on tomorrow (which would make two months since he's logged in), I'll make a new game.

As I said I would, I have created a thread advertising a new game: Once More, Into the Breach. Very Happy
