There seems to
be some sort of misapprehension her about my and Kirk's
statement on the Rogue Riddles.
Neither Kirk nor
I have any particular desire to see the Rogue Riddles
end. Nor have we any particular desire to kill off the
Rogue Riddles. If anything, it is the general lack of
participation in the riddles which is killing them off.
the past several weeks during which Kirk and I simply
traded Rogue Riddle sets with little or no
participation by anyone else, and perfunctory other
participation at best, it seemed yo us the game was
dead. Our conclusion that perhaps the Rogue Riddles
have seen their day was based upon that lack of
participation, and was not the result of any
sinister motivations on our parts.
It takes time
and effort to create and then administrate a Rogue
Riddle series. The more interesting and intriguing the
riddles are, the more time and effort is required. That
time and effort is rewarded by the responses from the
players. No responses, no reward. Quite frankly, if
only one other person really is into the game, then it
seems the game is dead. Hence our notes here.
If someone wants
to continue the game, that's perfectly fine with me
(and, I suspect, with Kirk). I have enjoyed and been an
avid participant in the riddles since they began as an
off-list Riddle Chain over twenty years ago. If others
want to see the Rogue Riddles continue, then the best
remedy is to participate.
