I'm torn about whether or not to do a hard reboot of my latest RP or to let it die and try something else for a while. I did a lot of work on the RP's setting and while it was playable there was much more to do. I had taken a break from it to help other people with their settings and that may have been a mistake. I also do not think i was clear enough in the direction I wanted to go, maybe I was too ambitious again.

You could rework the RP, flesh out the setting a bit more, maybe make some changes to it.

Speaking for myself, I think it was mainly the lack of pace that killed my interest in the RP. Nothing much happened for a while so I started pursuing other interests and by the time it seemed to get moving again I'd moved on to other things.

I know a lot of people dropped out and I'm not blaming you for that. One thing I would say is that OoA didn't start with the same energy I've seen from other RPs. Our characters came aboard the ship, chatted for a bit, then there was the ceremony which we skipped, and then there was a meeting where the characters chatted some more.

Next time I'd suggest opening the RP during the launch ceremony. Set the tone with the characters all standing proudly for an inspiring speech from their captain. Then you can cut to the briefing or a reception after the ceremony where our characters can introduce themselves to each other and chat. Maybe the captain can interrupt the reception with the briefing, saying he's just received important new orders that he must share immediately with the senior crew and civilian staff. At the briefing grab everyone's attention straight away with a big quest hook. Instead of a general "We're gonna explore space and fight pirates," that we got the in the briefing, let them know that an infamous pirate vessel, the Jolly Roger (come up with an better name) has been confirmed operating in the ship's mission area and you must depart ahead of schedule to track it down and destroy it. Then cut to a few days later and the players' first encounter with the enemy ship, which has ou can either treat as a Big Bad recurring villain or a fairly straightforward 'training mission' style space battle so everyone can figure out how space combat works in the RP. The Bridge crew do their thing firing torpedoes, taking evasive maneouvres and calling out shield percentages. Finally, when the enemy ship's disabled, the marines board her and find a cargo of stolen scientific equipment which they have to call the civilian characters on board to identify. Everyone gets to do something and do it quick.

Hopefully, this won't let anyone have a chance to get bored. :)

I'm thinking of making a slice of life RP, with characters from real video games or original characters you made yourself.
The basic plot is that, every time a video game is created, the characters are sent to a distant planet. Bugs can effect everyone and everything. (For example, a character from a game with a lot of bugs can be distorted or incredibly messed up.)

Any thoughts?

RP INTEREST AND FEEDBACK REQUEST
Please provide as much detail as possible.
RP's Overarching Concept: Teen military cadets fight for the survival of America's public sector. Also, they're mailmen.
Genre/s: Comedy, Action, Satire, Academy
Character or Faction Based: Character
Detailed Description: In an alternate world where the 2008 Financial Crisis never happened, public trust for corporate entities and calls for privatization of public sector assets are at an all-time high around the planet. The United States of America are the primary target of the fledgling phenomenon known as the New Gilded Age: benefiting from higher profits and an heightened capacity to succesfully lobby in Congress and other political organs, multinational corporations manage to obtain more and more legal leeway from the government: worker laws become a joke, the word "minimum wage" is banned in the constitution of multiple states and Walmart obtains the right to use repurposed convicts as unpaid workforce.

By the early 2010s, an increasingly red-blooded Congress overruns the presidential veto and signs the "Paul Act" into law: the safeguard of "personal and corporate economical interests" is reclassified as self-defence. Companies can now use armed force against individuals, organizations and other companies deemed as threats against their economical livelihood. Corporate Warfare becomes a day-to-day occurence in modern America, as IT companies, petroleum multinationals and car makers start deploying paramilitary assets and private military contractors to wage armed attacks and sabotages on competitors. Almost every industry or sector of value in the US has got its own war.

Our focus is on one of the bloodiest, widest ones: the Postal Wars. Once one of the few, shining examples of public sector investment in America, the United States Postal Service has been since undermined by budget cuts, privatization attempts and most importantly, a continuous stream of attacks on USPS vans and mailmen at the hands of the ruinous private forces of FedEx, DHL and the nefarious United Parcel Service. Originally a pacific force, the USPS is forced to gradually morph into a paramilitary organization, complete with ranks, officers, a full-blown boot camp system and a command training academy. Grumman LLVs are weaponized, or even replaced by surplus military hardware, while the air wing of the USPS is resurrected with the help of remote controlled drones, to provide both a speedy delivery of parcels to customers and high explosive artillery to corporate mercs.

You and your friends are fresh trainees from the United States Postal Service Postman Academy, a strict military highschool meant to form elite couriers and soldier-mailmen. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will stay you from the swift completion of your appointed appointed rounds. You will execute dangerous deliveries in corporate controlled zones, engage in high-speed chases with your trusted modified van, and bring victory to the American public postage sector against corporate anarchy. That is, if you don't go crazy first.

Pack your guns, boys and girls. We're putting the "postal" back in "going postal".
