Pretty much the same thing, I visited the site for a few seconds whenever I had some free time. Only thing is I couldn't idle in chat when the site was down. Also, I started playing a lot of TF2 like Noise, though I don't know if that's because of the site being unavailable. Definitely did not go outside more though, as a result. As well as jealously glaring at the comments of people who still had a site to participate in (Alora Fane).

You might want to add some of episode 2 to episode 1 so it doesn't seem lackluster. The first part of an episodic game is usually the most crucial part, the part that people will judge the rest of it on and the part that will determine how much they donate through Patreon. I don't know if you're reading this though; I doubt it. I bet I could say anything and you wouldn't know, like Christianity is the one and only truth our universe. Anyway, it sounds interesting and I'm glad Zach is making an appearance, however different he may be.

Pseudo said he gets "the feeling that he won't be missed", so the character is most likely male. I hope it's not Zach, since he's easily my favorite character. I think it would be Donovan because most people think of him as the least useful in battle, and Pseudo could easily keep him from being a party member without changing the plot much. Pseudo just cut a playable character, so Donovan can still take the role of the prince of Goznor. Or Mereador, I guess. It was a surprise that he joined our party as a pacifist inventor anyway, and most of his skills can be replaced by items. Though I would not think of him as unpopular.

It seems like an emotion based world and characters would limit character growth because everything would be mostly one-sided. Also, I don't look forward to it coming out in small amounts (this is only reliable and good for fans if there is a large team working on something) and being severely limited, but MARDEK is clearly exciting to you again and you can make more money off of it this way. If changing it this drastically is what it takes to achieve that, so be it.

Would all the progress from past games not be carried over in that case? I would prefer to play a whole definite game, and support that. But if there was going to be a MARDEK game released in small installments, then I would like it to be some side adventures, like the adventures of Saul, The World's Saviours, and/or Lone Wolf.

You can't just leave such a charming group of people.

I enjoyed it; it has good replayability because of the different spells you can make with the runes that are randomly generated, in addition to the randomly generated maps and monsters. Unfortunately I died at the Archmage because I wasted a lot of turns not knowing what I was doing and hitting him when he was invulnerable. I got some powerful piercing spells and somehow applied a powerful shield with an infinite duration to myself though, so it was still worth it. I commend you, good sir Will.

If I was really in your position, what would I do? If I started an online community and most of the members are critical and anti-emotional people who say that the solution is to change an intrinsic part of myself or leave the site I've created as a home for myself and others, I would consider taking down the site. I know this isn't an ideal solution, but it's what I would personally do. Why bother keeping a venue for people who make my life worse open, just so they can continue to do so? Of course this is just in my hypothetical situation; it would be harder to shut down Fig Hunter since people including myself have such fond memories of it.

But what are the alternatives? Leaving the site and only keeping it open for people who openly disagree with and dislike you? Staying and explaining yourself only to be further mocked and criticized? I think you and a lot of members really need fresh starts, so maybe you could close this site and open a new one in a few months. If you just keep in touch with people you trust and the enjoy the company of here, while giving enough time between closing this site and opening the next one, it could be a pleasant community. Of course some members are bound to follow you along to the next site, and you don't want to ban people just because they don't fit in with the community you want to have (because a lot of people here fit that description currently), but you could have a conversation about how they are expected to treat members and so on.

Anyway, I wish you luck with whatever you choose to do. You've gotten a lot of what I see as undeserved criticism for a while now and I admire you for still trying to reach out and explain yourself to these people. Of course there are many people who still treat you in the same way, or worse, because of this, which really upsets me, but no where near the amount it must upset you.

If those are my options, then I would choose omniscience. In that case I would know how to solve every problem in the world and start enacting those solutions. At least the majority of people would be happy in that case, even if I am not. Endless knowledge doesn't just mean you are constantly aware of all that is wrong in the world, but also that you know how to undo all of those injustices. I think looking at things on a global scale will be more beneficial for the most people, since me being endlessly happy isn't really going to help anyone but me. Plus I wouldn't be aware of a lot of the pain in the world, so I wouldn't really appreciate it.
