Anyone know why this seems to be dying? Again?

Happened last time, too; I posted basically the same thing with edits to the app and rules and such.

Quick post, because I really should be returning my attention to the lecture I'm in, but I've been doing some creepylurkism around Nat and NEI's threads (May First in particular) (also, those avatar swaps are disorienting) and thought: how about having a team of RPers of that quality in some weird-scenario-of-the-month thing, except with different guest hosts? It'd be a great way for inferior RPers to lazily amuse themselvesobject lesson in good character roleplaying. :p

So, through centuries of slaughters and killings the humans eventually wiped out dragons.......Pfft, yeah right!

In truth, what few dragons were left went into hiding, using the magic given to them by some higher power (will elaborate on this later) to assume a human form and hide amongst their killers. Throughout the generations, they mingled and blended in, some taking humans as partners and having offspring, which eventually leads to this RP which takes place in the 21st century in and around the small little town of Azle, Texas.

Let me preface this by saying that, if you're lurking in our threads, I'm very worried for your mental health. Have you met him? He's a psychopath.

Beyond that, I suppose it's a fine idea.

Well, no, I haven't met Nationstateslandsville. So that's what psychopaths are capable of! I do find the sheer crass weirdness quite enjoyable though...
Perhaps it's because I haven't done that much lurking in EH- I get the impression that it's a huge, monolithic, intimidatingly sized thread that's harder to acquaint oneself in. Like a more disturbing Doctor Who with more Eldritch Abominations.

Drugs. Lots of drugs. And then more drugs, followed by hordes of hot fanservice lesbians. Then, we have a torrent of racism and stereotypes, punch some assholes, followed by drugs and dick jokes. Legend says there's a "plot" in there, but the mythical beast hasn't been seen in centuries. Then we ignore the plot for fanservice, dick jokes, punching things, and getting lots of KFC.

I'd say drugs, except for Olthar and myself. The Penis Queen must have some funky Wisconsin cheese to do that sort of stuff. How a Mormon manages to come up with nonsensical crap like the rest of Night's homesizzles without any drugs is something you'll have to ask the Lord about, since I don't have a clue.

Despite this, Elfen High has a very rigid and solid canon that stretches across not just three arcs, but possibly a dozen roleplays and has a very in-built world.

Basically,

Which, mind, is also going to make the ending of this arc hell because of how many things we need to wrap up.

We've accidentally crafted a Tolkien-esque world, complete and resplendent in its complexity and comprehensiveness, all built around dick jokes and lesbians.
