Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, it's not a game.

Yes the server has been active the last several days an here is why:
This is a concerted effort. ALL the parts must be in place or the whole plan will not suffice to the cause.
1) Login, keep the place looking at least marginally populated, this will attract others and also reassure those who are thinking of login themselves that it is a good place to do so.
2) POST on other forums (see the related thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ) There is a delayed response to posted matter on other servers. Other readers may not read your post right away but your post remains there and is waiting to attract the attention of every user that visits that site where your post resides. The more positive posts about this server that exist on other servers, the greater the chance a player will find one. The fresher those posts the more the reader will feel this is an active and current server, and this too pulls them in. So it is NUMBERS and FRESHNESS that are the main factors. You'll note the wave of users comes in about a month to two months after the posting wave I spurred. SO GET OUT THERE AND POST.
3) Donate if you can. Coffers are very low. Kitty food comes way above server fees on my budget priority list, so do take this seriously.
Of course it does not hurt that we have the best scripting, the best DMs and the most stable and lag free server around either - but we have to tell the world about these facts because they just don't know yet.
Let us all take this with a measure of gravity. The other players are not psychic, so lets step up and help them get the message by means we humans can appreciate. POST POST POST.
Be well. Game on.
