October 25th and I’ve been seriously lacking in the blogs recently. It’s been a mix of things and I’ll let you guys and gals in on it. First, World 13 is basically over, as much as people would like to believe it’s not, there is simply no stopping INSO. They work well together and have great systems in place to get almost 100% participation. The world forums are slow, so there is less to work with in terms of the growth of the world from players eyes. Players refuse to talk with me about the blog, thinking that I have other motives for talking to them.
From the last blog til now, we have lost a bunch of players, some high profile, most were simply players that lasted this long. It’s always sad to see players leave, since it means that our book on this world is closing soon. A lot of us have put many years into this game world, and to know that the end is coming, is actually a bit upsetting. I was very lucky to be hooked up with the right players from the start and to end up with INSO. When W13 ends, I will be sad that I will no longer have the daily interaction with my tribe mates, these people are my online family. As much as people complain about the world dragging, some people secretly want it to go on longer just so they can interact with the friends they have made.
With all that being said, let’s get into some stats and maps and fancy things…
There are now 149 players left. Gigantic seas of barbarian villages strewn across the world. Some players are scrambling and trying to survive, some are fighting their enemies and some are simply just there.
