The Four Houses OOC
I know that this post should be done on the 4h_mod account, but since it's not paid I cannot do polls on it. :(
It's time to decide if we want to continue to keep the_four_houses open or not.
First off, I'd like to say that this game has been awesome. I know it sounds over dramatic, but in many ways it helped save my life, and those of you that know me will know that this is really true. I've met great friends, and the love of my life in this game so it's a fairly serious decision to close it or not.
The thing is, I feel like the game has run it's course. We have a second game open now, 4h_tng, and because of this we know the future of the characters in this game; their course is set. Also, at the other game we have many more OCs that we've put a lot of time in, and have more of an ability to make our own instead of being stuck in the rut that JKR has set for us in canon, there are years separating this game and the next and our characters have grown accordingly.
In my eyes, keeping this game alive means that we also run the risk of having our characters turn around and do something else (as we've seen happen time and time again when we've planned storylines). If something were to happen in this game it could change the whole dynamic over at TNG causing major plot problems and I don't think we should risk that.
To be fair to everyone, because this game is no longer just mine but OURS, I'm going to take a vote. Decide however you want (one vote per player), and whatever the majority decides will be the fate of the game. If we do decide to close it up, then we will have a large summary post about what happens to catch us up TNG, and so we have some closure here. If the vote is to keep it open, then we all need to make sure that we keep up to date on our posts.
Do we keep playing The Four Houses?
