If any of the developers have time, they should cater towards roleplaying, the UO community, is not as well as it once was.. We can blame the players, but we can also blame the developers, I remember players would have their own stories and like every two weeks would be the community spotlights... UO can't have a strong community, if the devs or anybody else, new reporters, aren't catering towards the aspects of roleplaying more often.. I mean, what happened down the road? I remember in an interview with Kerowyn, they said this.. "This has to be one of my favorite things to be involved with. I love reading. I love fiction. I love hearing about other people's experiences, whether in-game or in real life. So it's only natural that I would enjoy this part of my job as well. There are times that we'll solicit stories by posting a spotlight topic to FYI -- the last one was 'Quest Adventures,' I believe. I have the delightful task of reading the submissions that are sent to the [email protected] mailbox, and then choosing and editing the ones we ultimately post on UO.com. One thing I've discovered from reading all those submissions is that there are a lot creative writers in our community!" I agree, the roleplaying fiction aspect is the one of the best part of this game and it is the reason we have lasted so long, we all love the community, we like player run establishments, and after-all, this is an MMORPG.. Latley, the community has just been falling apart, those left that are still roleplaying and trying to cater towards it, have a very difficult time doing so, I have a hard time here on Pacific, it has slipped away, lot of people make fun of me when I roleplay, they make fun of my Orc, I can't speak Orcish to anyone, what happened there? Orcs use to be popular.. Again, this is due to the lack of anyone, including the devs, catering towards the RP community.. A lot of roleplayers have quit, understandable, but we havn't been getting any new blood, there is no interest, everyone wants the UBER L33t PWNAGE items so they can PvP, that is just a minor aspect of this game, but everyone treats it like it is the only one as of late.. We also use to have pictures of the week and establishment screenshots... Not anymore, no, we can't have that.. I think a good reason to quit the game is cause of a bad-shape the community is in, I think many players have quit for this very reason, and it is an area where the developers need greatly become involved in.. No strong community, no UO..
