I wouldn't necessarily say that me and Crazen are the only ones left. Grox's time is better spent elsewhere right now due to certain circumstances, but he's pretty much still here. And Returnae does still pop up from time to time.

Anyways, you summed up the recent half-decade pretty accurately. And yeah, Hydro has been up to his necroing habits again.

Actually, I was kind of contemplating the same thing, that is the status of the community, or the loss thereof. Which is partially why I've been tossing up several ideas.

So far, I've been thinking what if we built a collaborative webcomic out of the universe? We could set up the drawing board on a forum, post the comic in a comic hosting site, attract folks from sci-fi sites we frequent, then build up from there. I mean, really, we might want to greatly tone down some of the more blatant parodies of other IPs, but even with all that stripped down, we could whip up even better replacements if we butt our heads together.

Another thing I've been thinking of is making a DeviantArt group, so we could unite the people that are already there, then let others open up their own accounts. We'd probably focus on art, honing those that need some catching up, or introducing people to mediums that they'd probably be more apt in. Still, there does exist a text category for deviations so lore and actual storytelling aren't totally out of the picture.

Or we could do both.

What say you guys?

This whole three-year section of my life was a turbulent time for me. I matured as an artist and a storyteller, made friends, had fun. There were high points and low points. But the GSU has officially ended without a doubt. I first had my fears when Gec left, and then when we migrated to Kosmosis many didn't make the trip with us, having left already. The board flourished for a brief while, though slowly. But when Kitkat gave up on the bino, I realized that my beloved galaxy had come to an end. Yuu and Crazen are the only ones still going. It pains me greatly to see Yuu's undying optimism wasted on a graveyard, but this has come and gone.

It all started back in 2005, when Will Wright first announced his upcoming project, Spore. Until the game's release in 2008, many Internet communities emerged in an excited, creative wave of anticipation and speculation. The first RP in Gaming Steve was Prison Escape, which featured many races that became mainstays of the classical galaxy. Nauceans, torpals, oifan-umtag, baobas, necromonicon, yunimians... But this was only the first half. After the game's release, many were disappointed with its rather inadequate features. But the RP community kept on going strong. It was at this point that I arrived on the scene.

The perrachi were my first creations, and still my favorite. I can't say how many ideas I came up with for them, but it's a fact that at least 70% were never actually implemented, like the rest of the World War. In the post-Spore GSU, dozens of new (and short-lived) members came to the forum. A couple stayed and developed their creations. From the ulandians to the Nameless to komodiles, I'll always remember those days with fondness. It's a shame how many ideas were never fleshed out, but perhaps one day in the future we'll have moved on. Maybe evolved forms of them will appear in published works like books, films, and RPGs. Maybe there will be a naucean on the big screen in 2020.

But now scant few remain. I have recognized the obvious signs and made peace with myself. This forum's time has come and gone. It's sad but true; I've accepted that. To see Hydro occasionally kicking around his ancient stomping grounds seems almost senile in a strange way. I don't want to do that. If veterans of these past years of glory are willing to continue the universe in another medium, another incarnation, go ahead and contact me. I'm more than willing to do that. But I feel that the GSU's forum-based form has died. The optimist in me says that it's merely matured and developed, that it's anticipating in its cocoon, ready any moment to burst free in a different body. It's grown too sophisticated for the crude ways of a message board.

I sincerely hope that that's the truth. If so, we must make it happen ourselves, not just hang around a tomb and reminisce. Therefore a new, hopefully longer golden age could be kicked off, a mature and cultivated sci-fi story. But when speaking of the here and now, it's time to move on. It's been a wonderful time, but we've got to say goodbye. This stage, this level of evolution is at an end. I'll see you later somewhere if we continue instead of quit.

But with less wizards and more space battles.

It'd probably result in lots of arguments regarding stats, but hey, at least we'd be doing something.

I was thinking.

Do any of you want to make a children's card game out of the Kosmosis universe?

Sorry 'bout that, memory kinda failed me back there.

Anyways, looking forward on the story's conclusion, Bard. Sorry about the case of inactivity. I'm sure this'll still rock if you want to convert it to story or synopsis format, what with your attention to detail even in your stubs, let alone this sizeable RP.   Smiley

So far, the only guys that are posting are you, me, Grox, and some time ago, Ovi.

Hmm... I wonder how the others are doing.

And me? 0.0
