An Update? What?

Hey guys!

By this point it has been years and years since TortallMOO was at all active, but I never really forgot it. And recently, I've been thinking about trying again.

It's not a matter of whether the game will be put back online or not; I've already sent the core file off to someone who's said they'll host it for me. But whether or not I'll actually make an effort to find players and update everything is a bit up in the air.

So, for the second time in three years: Is anyone interested in starting up again? Whether or not you'd join, do you have suggestions for a come-back plot or any changes you think would be necessary? Does anyone even read this LJ comm anymore?

Feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Vaguely interested. :) Now that it's 7 months past. As for a "come-back" plot I think it would need to be large enough, yet scalable in either direction, to scale from 10 players to 50+ players. Pardon my over technical note. To that effect, some kind of fair or celebration (a lot hinges on how much canon is used and to what extent one diverges from it). Pardon my over technical note. Anyway:
- royal progress comes to mind:
- king/queen & entourage(queen's riders, knights, etc) tour country?
- are there jousts or local events/turnout on the way, npcs or multi-play required to create atmosphere?
- coronation might be interesting, canon issues, but not a huge hindrance
- wars or conflict create plenty of stuff to do, although it help to have the events deal with before hand and lead up to that, since that needs a base to move forward from.

Not sure what kind of events are more common, I haven't read the books in a while (and unfortunately I don't own many, despite having read most of the ones I know of).

I occasionally check here (just for kicks), when my poor brain chances upon the thought (remembering having looked before...). This post is proof and point.

P.S. Did this ever get hosted, was it up and went back down again, and what's the status quo now?

It was up and then back down. A lack of reliable hosting is going hand in hand with a lack of interest in this one :/

Tried posting something anonymously yesterday or the day before, might as well have vanished because of LJ's moderation policy. Not sure how often you check this. So I got an account, now it should be obvious what I have and haven't posted. Point I was trying to make is that there are a few free and relatively inexpensive hosting services especially for this. Any particular reason you are having trouble with reliable hosting?
