    I want everyone that answers this thread to come up with one, two, or three things they believe is holding the RPG back. I want what you believe is the biggest factor or biggest factors to make this RPG unpostable.

    Not enough participation. The storytellers lag in their story updates.

    I agree. Many get tales started, then die shortly.

    I think we need some relevance to in game actions, otherwise there is no real entertainment value for some of us.

    Blackheart, RegentMan: Those are effects that resulted from some cause. What is the cause? Provo seems to have the idea. We must do this to get to the next step.

    Provo has a very good point.

    So far the only relation to game actions have been the city names.

    Yeah, but even that doesn't really have anything to do with the actual game part, just a story thing that happens in the world of DG5

    It would be hard to keep drawn out stories relevant to the game because our technology is progressing very fast.

    That is exactly why we use the theatre format, which is timeless in the Casino.
