I wasn't sure what to do, but I didn't want this thread to be buried in case someone needed it, so I decided to just provide another reminder that there's a new update (And bigger news).
That said, I've been thinking about reopening the game to applications. I originally closed them because I wasn't aware just how long this game would run on (It's hard for me to believe that this has been going on for over a year), and it felt like it wouldn't be fair for old players to suddenly have to deal with new people that are starting out unscathed. In hindsight, this was a mistake, because, while it is easier for me to update, things are growing too stale and small with such a small group of players.
Certainly this could also be attributed to the fact that I'm quite frankly too hesitant to kill someone. I'm afraid of being unfair (Especially now, since people have been sticking around for so long), and this has been working against the game's basic survival theme. When players meet, the confrontations should be quick and concise, yet I want to give both equal chances of surviving if they choose to fight. If the game were opened up again, however, I could probably afford to be a little more ruthless in my designs.
I'm going to leave it up to y'all. This game wouldn't exist without its players, and if people don't mind then I'm sure that I could think of a way to enable new Super-Powered showing up.
