    If...I may post my opinion...

    It all comes down to organization. KPU was and probably will be poorly organized. It released without a map, without any system, and without a plot. There was no direction, which was what really pissed me off as the kind of person who really really really likes planning (but oddly enough, never doing.). So I tried to do it. I tried to make a plot, I tried to make a villain. Something for the students to strive towards. The next paragraph can be skipped if you want, but I think it helps me get my point across.

    The villainous team's first outing would have completely destroyed the students, but the teachers would have saved the day. This would have made the students respect the teachers, and give them a goal - to defeat the villains. The second attack would have the students successfully fend off the villains, to show that they had grown. The third attack would have the villains defeat the teachers, but the students would be able to push through and succeed, which would show that they have finally proven themselves as equals to, some better than, the teachers. A final attack would have defeated them completely and thoroughly, only for them to rise again for the final battle, when they were no longer on defence, and would take back what was theirs.

    Which I had posted in the admin thread. Unfortunately, somebody else had already made a villainous team, so it got rejected. So I asked her how the plot would go. She didn't say anything. Which really, really annoyed me (I left a comment which thinking back could have been a lot better worded and not as forceful. Not that it would have changed anything, but I would emerge as much less of a jerk.).

    Now, you might argue that KPU isn't about villainous teams, but about socializing and getting to the end of the school year. To which I reply, yes, I totally agree with you. So...why do we need a villainous team again? I mean, there was a "villainous team" section in the original plan which was incomplete, so I kinda went ahead and...oh...ohhhhhh. See what I did there? "Plan". "Incomplete". We did have a plan, but it wasn't complete.

    And that is the problem with KPU. If we're going to grab our defibrillators and bring this sonuvagun back to life, we need to get ourselves organized. We don't need a villainous team, we don't need any fancy schmancy battle/leveling system, all we need is planning and organization.

    So, who wants to be a GM?

    I don't mind getting involved with this but reading many ex player comments I think the problem is not everyone agreeing.

    Also, Glitch most of your points are good but I disagree with the starting from the last point instead of starting again. Mainly because if it was faulty the first time there's not point restarting it from a mess, especially when there seems to be a new wave of interest.

    This is just my opinion though.

    @White Len; Much as I'd like to do a game solely about character development, it would turn into pretty much a high school drama/sitcom. A villain would give the game a defined goal to strive towards, and a villainous team works a lot better than what System Error had in mind.

    Matter of fact, I think I may have a new idea since we've lost our previous villains' creator. That will be something to discuss later.

    And I think I can satisfy both those who want a restart and those who want to continue from where we left off. It's a bit cumbersome, but it could work: The very first version of the game was archived and kept readable by guests, so what if we just archived the last incarnation but kept it playable by those involved at the time? Then we can start over without throwing everything out completely.

    @Glitchipedia; Why can't character development be tied into the fight against the villains? My character, Aaron McCallister, exemplifies this quite well IMHO: After losing to that Shadow Gengar, he started to doubt himself and he decided he needed to become stronger. In fact, I was really hoping he'd have a chance for a rematch against Shadow Gengar sometime down the road, after he became stronger abd had a chance of defeating it.

    You've had more court dates than second dates.

    I don't think there was a chance of defeating it. System Error rigged that fight so there was only one way to win it, and he never indicated what that way was until well after the fact.

    But anyway, I never said that villains and character development were mutually exclusive. It's just that a game lacking villains would lack a defined goal, and thus fail to give players a reason to keep playing beyond a certain point.

    I think what we've most needed from the beginning was a way to keep battles from becoming god-modding contests. In fact, I think I even interrupted a battle and called a confab to discuss the problem.

    The trouble there is that the GMs are too lazy/busy to actually referee battles. If we can fix that problem, the whole battle system can pretty much be resolved.

    If I joined in it, I'd definitely try to become a ref xD I'm fairly active.

    That makes two of us. By the time I worked up the courage to poke my head inside, it was being closed down. I'd like to give it a shot, if it were to come back. (And if I could get my hubby off the freaking PC every once in a while...!)

    Well, folks, it's happening. We're rebooting the RP. It could take a while to plan everything, though, so don't expect it to actually open anytime soon. Thanks for your feedback.

    @Glitchipedia; Are you making it a complete restart, or... ?

    Yeah, it looks like a total reboot at the moment. The previous versions are still archived and probably will be viewable, though, and I'm hoping we can have the last version remain playable by those signed up at the time.
