General James Mattis Presidential run announcement
On April 26th 2015
(Image Link)
Hello Tacoma!! It is so glad to be back in my home of the Pacific Northwest!!!  *Crowd cheers*
In November of 2008 America elected Barrack Obama to be our next president and I am going to be honest I gave him a chance and I tried to work with him and hope for his pun intended hope and chance he was going to bring us!

Well itís now 2015 and I still am wondering where is the change and hope we were promised?  We are still losing our jobs overseas, We have higher taxes, We still are arming people we donít know about and have a even weaker military than before! We are in a even higher defict than we were a decade ago and government is bigger than it has been in recent time!

Amercia needs real change right now!! *Crowd cheers* and that is why I am running for President Of the United States!  *Crowd cheers lounder*.   I am a well respected Marine general who will bring back the Amercia I grew up with and loved!!  I will rebuild our milltary and crush the everlasting life out of ISIS and will arm the right rebel groups in the Middle East and try to end our mission in Afghanistan once and for all!!   I will cut taxes for hard working Americans and businesses and get out or reform these unfair trade deals!!  I will reduce wasteful spending and go for a balence budget amendment!!   I will make Amercia one of the best places of getting healthcare with a competitive system that gives you cheap and excellent healthcare! And I will put Amercia First over any other country, Thank you!!  *Crowd cheers*

Announcement from Phil Bredesen in Nashville, Tennessee on March 12th, 2015

(Image Link)

Quote
Hello, Tennessee, it's good to see you all again.

*Crowd Cheers loudly*

Quote
Alright, alright. I know you love me. I love you too. I want to get to the point everyone. 8 years ago, we elected Barrack Obama to be our President in a 356-173 landslide. We gave him our trust for his hope and change that he promised us. He betrayed that trust and that's why, in 2012, we took away 24 of his electoral votes and North Carolina and Indiana didn't go for him. Now look at our country, inside and outside. We have fewer jobs in our countries than we did in the 90s and the recession only seems to be getting worse. The DOW jones is getting lower and lower and companies that have our jobs are fleeing to countries like China because we tax them to oblivion. Our International respect has fallen apart and our nation's standing continues to get lower and lower.What will we do to change that, you may be asking. Well, I want to announce my candidacy for President because I want to Make America Great Again.

First, I want to completely reform Healthcare. the ACA has been proven to be somewhat faulty. I want to change it but not completely get rid of it. Instead, I want to split Healthcare into dozens of 50 separate companies and have multiple companies under that company in every state to compete with one another to improve the quality of the Healthcare. I know what you might think that thinking that this will get rid of preventative care. I assure you, for those who are above the age of 35, they can keep their preventative care package and receive subsidies from the government.

Next, I want to give Tax cuts to the lower, middle, and upper classes. The more the upper class can invest in the economy, the more the Economy can get on the path of recovery. For years, the upper class has been taxed and look where our Economy is. Are you better off than you were 8 years ago? Has our nation gotten better or worse under President Obama? The economy needs to be pumped with investments and instead of having the government  getting it's hands on it, we should let the economy become better and spread out. I promise to give a 20% tax cut to the Lower Class, a 24% Tax Cut to the Middle Class, and a 28% tax cut to the upper class. This will allow our economy to be on the quick path to recovery. A final 20% corporate tax rate will allow businesses to return and give more jobs to our unemployed citizens.

Then, I want to bring up our fossil fuels and our Alternative energy balance at an almost mixed balance. I'd say 52% Alternative Energy and 48% fossil fuel energy. I know that global warming is a real threat in the future. The distant future. As of right now, in the present, there are people risking life and limb for their families and to give us the energy we need for our daily lives in coal mines. These people can do little else and barely make enough to have ends meet. Putting these people out of the job can not happen. Just because in the future, say 100 or 200 years from now, global warming will be a serious problem does not mean that right now we have to take thousands out of the job.

Finally, I want to bring up foreign policy. For the last decade, we've treated our enemies and rivals like North Korea, China, and Russia with kiddy gloves, just giving them a light slap when they did something we didn't like. It's time we stop that. It's time that the United States is respected internationally again. It is time that we as a country and the world's super-power get the respect we deserve. I don't think we like what's happening in our foreign relations and I want to change that.

I will be fighting for you when I run for President. I will be campaigning to make sure you all get the best Nation possible. I love all of you and I want to Make America Great Again. Thank you, I hope to see you all on the campaign trail.

Phil Bredesen would Leave Nashville and would campaign for the entirety of March in Iowa on his policies before going to the key state of New Hampshire and campaign there.

ďHello my fellow Americans! Iím here today to make a huge announcement. I am running for the Republican Nomination. I love this country and I want to see it prosper. For 8 years we have been led by Barack Obama. Iím sure heís a great person, but heís been a failed leader and you all deserve better. We have some other good candidates running this year, but I ask for your vote. As Governor of New Jersey, I have achieved a lot. I will approach the country with the same attitude: The well being of the people are my main concern. I will defend the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness like our founding fathers stood up for. I love you all! May God Bless all of you. Thank you! Bon Jovi Forever!Ē

Senator Rob Portman of Ohio Presidential Annoucment

(Image Link)

March 15th, 2015

Ohio State University

"Today I am proud to announce that after discussion with my wife and children I will run for president of the greatest nation in the world, the United States of America. For the last eight years, we have had a president who is inexperienced with both the economy and foreign policy, a president that is a party good-old-boy and today I say enough! We need an experienced conservative maverick in the white house. We need a president that puts real hard-working Americans before their party.

We need a president that is going to call it as he sees it, When I am president I will call it the opioid epidemic and I will call it radical Islamic terrorist. We need to fix real problems plaguing Americans today and stop the partisan turmoil.

I am ready to serve for the coal miners of West Virginia, the small business owner from New Hampshire, the soldier overseas, I am going to serve you. Let's put America back to work! "

Rick Santorum Campaign Announcement
 April 3rd, 2015
(Image Link)
ďToday, I am announcing my candidacy for President of the United States! The last 8 years has seen a decline in moral values, and that has got to be put to a stop. As someone who fought against the big government for 12 years and for those core values, I know what it takes to restore them. We have to remember those forgotten men and women, those blue collar workers that work day and night in jobs such as manufacturing. The term ISIS must be called out by its name, radical Islamic terrorism. The enemy cannot be defeated until we call it out my its name with true intention and meaning. I have a plan to defeat ISIS, by adding the necessary resources to the region to make them retreat from their hidden locations. I plan to campaign door by door and county by county to get my message across and I need your help to help restore the values of this great nation. Thank you all and God bless!Ē

Janet Napolitano Steps Down as President of UC, Announces Run For President in Phoenix

(Image Link)

ďAs many of you know, itís been made public that I have announced my resignation as UC President. I did not take this decision lightly, and itís been an honor to work for such an incredible American institution, as it was an honor to serve all of you as Attorney General and then Governor of this great state. The United States is at an inflection point, much like we were 8 years ago, when the Great Recession began to show its first stages around the world. As a country, we made a decision, and that was to elect Barack Obama and his message of hope, change, and a brighter tomorrow. After serving with the President for four years, I can say we donít agree on everything, but we both believe in a stubborn optimism for this country. He was handed the largest financial crisis since the Depression, chaos around the globe due to mistrust of America after the war in Iraq, and a political establishment in Washington that decided to obstruct his every move.

After 8 years of successes, failures, victories, and defeats, what we need is a leader with broad, executive experience. We need a leader with solutions. We need someone who has run a state government and had to work across the aisle to ensure the wheels wouldnít come flying off. America needs a steady hand, who can whip Contess into shape. When they refused to help children brought to this country without documentation, I wrote DACA to give them a chance in the only country theyíve known as home. I promise you, as I have before, that I will fight for you. Iíll fight to stabilize our healthcare system by adding a public option and allowing the US government to negotiate prescription drug prices. Iíll fight to ensure that we retrain our forgotten workers whose jobs have been lost to automation. Iíll fight to make our energy production greener, cleaner, and more efficient. Iím here to announce Iím running for President to carry my fight for you to Washington!Ē

Ted Cruz Joins the Presidential Race

(Image Link)

March 23rd, 2015 - Liberty University

"Hello everyone! It is a distinct honor to be able to talk with you today, here at Liberty University. Your's is an institution of higher-learning with an unparalleled commitment to the Constitution and American freedom.

I'd ask all of you to think of the state of America today. For nearly eight years, we have suffered under the big-government liberalism of Barack Obama. We have seen government grow and freedom recede. All the while, our President tells us his course has been 'helping' America. Nothing could be further from reality. The results of his course are clear; our economic growth is anemic, our role as a global leader has been diminished, the family itself is under attack, and the fundamental freedoms, on which our country was founded, are continually threatened by an ever-bigger bureaucratic behemoth in Washington.

Let me tell each and every one of you something; things DO NOT have to be this way. We do not have to accept the economic stagnation and cultural malaise of these last years as the new normal. America is a nation where the seemingly impossible can be realized. I want you to imagine a nation with booming economic growth, a foreign policy guided by moral clarity on good and evil, and a Constitution treated with the respect it deserves, as the single greatest instrument for promoting human liberty in history.

In order to see these things become reality, we need to see millions of courageous conservatives, all over our great country, stand up and demand their government back. I firmly believe a bold, positive, conservative message can unite the people of this country and unleash a new wave of American liberty. I'd like to lead the charge in bringing that conservative message to the American People. For that reason, I am running for President of The United States! Thank you! God bless you, and may God always bless The United States of America!"

Jim Hodges Campaign Announcement
(Image Link)

(COLUMBIA, SC)-"Hello fellow South Carolinians, Columbians, and fine people that I had the honor to serve years ago. Many of you may be aware that there has been some speculation, mostly online, about me running for president. While many of these rumors have been passed of as nonsense and completely unrealistic dreams I still wanted to address them personally. And the truth about these rumors is thatóthey're true. I, Jim Hodges, am officially running for the highest office in the United States."

"Recently, I have become concerned about the growth of divisive and extremist politics over the past few years. I'm worried about a takeover by extremist politics because we know that they do not work. We have seen several examples of nations with extremist policies over the years, right and left, and they have all resulted in failure, economic collapse. America has always been most prosperous under moderate policy, moderate presidents, and that is exactly what I hope to deliver."

"Our divided society is also a problem. People talk about how lazy congress is and how our government never gets anything done. And the true fault lies in our current congress's lack of cooperation, it's inability to ever be bipartisan. I've already talked about how moderate politics are best, and these policies happen when opposing sides come together. I want to be the encouraging voice for the bipartisanship. I want things to get done, and I want these things to be helpful and successful."

"There is much more I would like to talk about, many more ideas that I have for our country, much more than I have time for today. But what I can tell you is that these ideas all follow my philosophy of moderation and cooperation. This is the philosophy that we want, these are the policies that we need, and these are the ideals that will be delivered if you vote for Jim Hodges in 2016!"

Rand Paul Presidential Announcement! (Louisville, Kentucky)
(Image Link)

Hello everyone! Today I am here to spread a message of hope and prosperity for America! For too long we have seen our country ripped off time and time again! Today I have decided that I am taking a stand against the very things that have prevented America and it's people to have true prospects for the future! I will take a stand against the Washington machine that is now overburdened with bureaucrats who believe they know better than the American people! I will take a stand against the unimaginable size in which government has grown into! I will take a stand against unconstitutional foundations and uphold the precious values that our founding fathers left behind!

Right now the Republicans need a new type of republican. My fellow Americans, I am that different Republican who has a plan for America's future and to see to it that anyone regardless of their position can succeed in our society! It's the idea of the American dream and our values that have been undermined and ignored time and time again! Ladies and gentlemen it is a pleasure to announce that I will be running for President of the United States! This is more than just a campaign!
This is a movement that will be strong as the days go by! This will be a movement based on our founding principles and the policies that help to protect the freedom of the individual! Now with that being said, lets defeat the Washington machine and unleash the American dream!

Deval Patrick running for President
Boston, MA

Hello, everyone!
Recently, rumors have been going around that I will be running for this country's highest office. Well, starting tonight, they will be rumors no more. I would like to officially announce my candidacy for President of the United States!

Throughout the past seven years, we have seen one of the most successful administrations since FDR. However, Barack Obama's accomplishments been under attack since the day he took office, particularly the Affordable Care Act. Since Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in 2011, they have voted over 60 times to repeal the greatest reform American health care has ever seen. It will literally be hazardous to your health to vote Republican next November, because if they get control over both houses of Congress and the Presidency, millions could lose the health insurance they need. As governor of Massachusetts, I oversaw the implementation of a health care bill, and it worked wonders; within three years, 98% of Massachusetts citizens were insured.

My own reforms will mostly fall under three categories: education, innovation, and infrastructure. We need to give a boost to our public schools. These children are the generation that could have to pick up the pieces from ours if we don't fix problems like climate change. I strongly support and support investment in green technology. As governor, I joined a regional initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Regional initiatives are a good start, but we need national reduction of emissions to save our planet.

The first thing I will advocate for as President is a bipartisan infrastructure bill. Republicans and Democrats agree that America's infrastructure needs improvements.  I created the Massachusetts Department of Transportation as governor, and as president I will strengthen the federal DOT.

Thank you for your time. I enjoyed serving you as Governor, and I look forward to serving you as president!

Mark Dayton: Progressive with Results!

Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"Thank you all for coming here today. I stand before you to say that there have been a lot of people out there throwing their names around out there for President. Let me ask you something, can any of them truly claim that they have achieved progressive results despite being forecast as the bringer of the apocalypse and the destroyer of Minnesota?

As Governor, I raised taxes on the wealthy in our state by $2.1 billion and invested $900 million in public education, as well as raising our minimum wage. Republicans predicted an economic disaster. Our budget surplus is now $2 billion. Median household income in our state is now $8000 above the national average and our job growth is second in the Mideast.

Why do I say this? Because I get results! It's all well and good to push for these laws in the Senate-believe me, I know how hard it is, seeing as I was there once-but it is another thing altogether to enact these laws. I have, and they are working! I am a progressive with results, and it is because I want to see these policies enacted nationwide, that I am declaring my candidacy for President of the United States of America!

45% chance for Bredesen Nomination
25% chance for Dayton Nomination
25% chance for Sanders Nomination

I think that Phil Bredesen can carry the south if he can attract enough conservatives and Attack Sanders enough. He may also be able to carry several other conservative states simply because he is a Conservative DEM.

Dayton and Sanders, However, will have a slugfest. They will both be seen as Progressives with Bernie only saying that he's a democratic Socialist. If Dayton can hit him enough times on that, he may be able to focus on Bredesen then. Sanders will just have to appeal to the masses and attempt to get the youth vote. All in all, unless one of the two becomes a strong number two, Bredesen could ride to the Nomination.


37% chance of Cruz Nomination
35% chance of Portman Nomination
20% chance of Paul Nomination

For the Republicans, it might be extremely tight, but Cruz may be able to take enough conservatives and Paul may be able to take enough Libertarians and youth to defeat Portman. Portman, at the same time, will have to attempt to attract all 3 groups and keep the establishment happy with him, which won't be an easy feat. All in all, Portman may be doomed to lose if he doesn't find a way to attract those 3 specific groups and shake off the establishment.

()

Cruz: 272/46.4%
 Bredesen: 266/47.3%

And that's my election Prediction. Honestly, a lot can change from then to now, but at this point, it looks like it'll be Cruz v Bredesen.

Thoughts?

Sestak Announcement Speech
Independence Hall - June 19, 2015

(Image Link)

Ladies and gentlemen...

My life has been dedicated to serving America. To helping protect our freedoms. My father fought to defend democracy in the face of tyrannical regimes across the globe in World War II. I served in the Navy for thirty years. After that, I served in Congress for four years, making sure I always put the people first. I have always been devoted to democracy and serving the people first and foremost, as was my father before me.

So it pains my heart to see what's happening in this country right now. Throughout the country, America's wealthiest - Wall Street Bankers, Corporate Executives, political machine leaders, special interests - are all gathering in luxury office rooms... in Washington, in New York, in San Francisco, in Chicago, in... Boston. They are gathering and they are deciding who will be the Democratic Nominee for President.

They may have already decided. I don't know. They've already propped up their foil... the spooky bogeyman socialist Senator Sanders, who they're hoping will push the masses to vote for the loyal party establishment candidates. On the other side, the Republicans are trying to do the same thing with Senator Cruz. They both want the same thing: a President who will look out for their interests above all others.

When I ran for Senate five years ago, the Democratic establishment refused to support me in the election. They preferred to have a conservative, Wall Street Republican over an outspoken liberal, progressive veteran. During the Iraq war, I was fighting wastefulness and inefficency on defense from inside the Navy, while the Democratic establishment silently signed off on George Bush's Wastefulness as he handed over billions of taxpayer dollars in a gift to the military-industrial complex. In fact, it was the Democratic establishment, along with their corporate backers, who allowed this unnecessary, costly war in Iraq to happen in the first place, and it's time to let them know that we have had enough!

I first ran for Congress after my daughter beat cancer in 2005. It was thanks to TRICARE, a government health insurance program for veteran families, that she was able to get the treatment she needed to survive through it. If it hadn't been for that program, I... I... (holding back tears)...I would have lost her ten years ago. And it was then that I thought: "Why shouldn't everyone have access to the same treatment. No one should have to go through losing a loved one because they couldn't pay for healthcare costs."

I decided to run for Congress because I wanted to give that opportunity to everyone. And we've made tremendous progress: we passed Obamacare five years ago. But it's still not enough. If we want affordable healthcare for all, we need a strong public option, which was removed from the Obamacare bill by Democratic corporate interests. We need to keep pushing. And yet, some of the candidates in the Democratic field want to undo the progress we've already made on affordable healthcare.

And this ultimately speaks to the main issue with today's politics: both parties, the Democrats and the Republicans, are dominated at the top by these corporate interests. Goldman Sachs. Lockheed. Countless other banks, hedge funds, and massive corporations, holding the levers of our government. And I think we ought to remind the corporations of something I said five years back. I think we ought to remind them that the words of our Constitution that was signed in the very building behind me are we, the people. Not we, the corporations, nor we, Wall Street. And that is why I am running to be the President - the People's Presdent - of the United States. Corporations have held far too much power for far too long, and we need to send a bold statement reminding them who holds the power in our democracy. WE, THE PEOPLE.

Thank you all, and God bless America.

Politics is a dirty, dirty business. No matter how high or low you are in the Polls, if you have scandals and something to be discussed, then expect to be attacked on it. It'll also be possible that doing such a thing is a Kamikaze move, in which a candidate is going down but they take someone down with them. It can happen, though it's rare.

Knock them out quickly. At the same time, Patrick practically left himself wide open. Had he not attacked Bredesen when he was so low in the Polls, then he would've been seen as a better Candidate.

Also, I reccomend writing up the next turn's National and State Polls as well as the debates today so you can post them all at once tomorrow.

Candidate interviews can only be done for candidates over 15% in the national polling, and its one per term.
Did not see this before posting my update. Iíll adjust accordingly.

Maybe you shouldn't play as Hillary at this time. You can choose Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, or Sen. John Edwards, as I don't think anyone wants the hot potato Hillary Clinton had.

Just a note to all of the candidates, I think there is too much negative campaigning going on. Some candidates are getting in back and forth political quarrels with each other. While there is nothing I can do to stop candidates from running negative campaigns, I would like to politely encourage candidates to run more positive campaigns, so that there is a lighter feel to the game, and so that all candidates have a decent chance at winning.

There are still plenty of other things to attack Hillary on (Killing Gadaffi even though he said he would step down). Not to mention, I can hit her where she hurts by just striking up my likability while I doubt Hillary could After everything she has done thus far.

No, we are not going to debate a candidates character here. The polls determine if a candidate is likeable, other candidates do not. We need to all be respectful of one another. Is that too much to ask?

NOTTYLER is clearly violating the game rules, which say simply put, do not leave tons of replies and campaign updates. It is hurting the gameplay.

NOTTYLER is also violating another game rule. Constantly responding and attacking other candidates obsessively.

If NOTTYLER keeps this up, I will ask (more like force) him to drop out and drop out his candidate myself. Is that clear?

I also want to give a reminder to History505 of these rules, just because he is giving too many attacks and campaign updates.

Both of you, this is your last warning. Am I clear?

It isn't horrible, but there are things in it that probably won't happen and I think are wrong, mostly because I made the map like if the game had just started and nobody had done anything yet (my next maps will be made considering what happened so far during the turn the map os being made)

That is what I did last time, but I accidentally closed the tabs in which my drafts were on. I need to be more careful next time.

Use Google Docs and then select 'available offline" if you ever find yourself without wifi. GD is a life saver for these things.

I think going from 6% to 9% is very considerable during the campaign. Next thing we, he could turn the 4 way race into a 5 way race

Here is my own prediction for the Dems and Reps that have been slightly modified with Jindal and the war between Bernie, Sanders, and Clinton:

(Image Link)

I just don't see Sanders having an appeal to the Indiana and Great Plains voters when there is Bredesen as an alternative to Clinton. Result is the same, Clinton nomination

(Image Link)

If Jindal does what he did in the 2012 game, then, well, we could be seeing a Nomination of Jindal as he would be seen as a more moderate Ted Cruz. Still, as of rn, Cruz and Paul might get the nomination.

I think you're short changing Bernie in the West/Desertland. He did well there when it was just against Hillary, he should do even better with moderates splitting vote between Hillary and Bredesen.

Also I think Portman would probably win his home state.

That map is definitely wrong because you have Ohio to Paul and D.C. And Virginia to Jindal but those are definitely going to Portman since they are D.C. Insiders and moderates. And if Portman doesn't win Any of the first four states he would drop out

Than perhaps the best choice is Lieberman. He has been an Indpendent since 2006 and has more favorable stances than Bernie and can easily sneak voters from the Reps.

I think this will be the first official results of each primary for each state if the current polls continue:

(Image Link)

Bredesen is currently leading in Iowa and possibly SC too, so expect him to win those states, Bernie may be able to snatch NH, but NV is a sure Clinton win.

(Image Link)

Cruz can definitely carry IA but he may not be the best fit for NH, SC, and NV. I fully expect Jindal to carry SC and NV while Portman carries NH

Agreed. Although, not sure what I am doing wrong exactly. I don't play these types of campaign games often. Any tips?

You're best bet is to continuously state how you're going to implement your ideas and what they are. If possible and needed, defend them. Don't rely on surrogates, fight to show everyone how you stand.

I think your running a good campaign but there are just not that many libertarian Republicans in the party and you are focused too much on youth who usually don't vote Republican or even vote at all

So I essentially need to outreach towards different voters. I think that's probably best.

While I am unsure on their chances, Jeb would not be the first person to be in one party, only to run under a third. George Wallace was a democrat who went to a third party in 68, teddy did it in 1912, and both Carter and daddy bush only had one term so could still run.

The best election game that I ever have seen is Electoral.io (back in 2016). Despite the fact that it is the online game, not a real political race,  should say it is more interesting and exciting. Like in the real presidential election you should choose your candidate (Trump or Clinton) and start to collect money and votes for it, absorbing opponents. It is really fun and unpredictable. As politics in real life though...

Paul isn't a pure libertarian and given that Cruz and Paul both rode in on the same Tea Party sense of anger at government, I feel that they have a certain kinship. Either way, I'm not going to change it now.

I got plenty of time if I decide to drop out, but I don't know how well I'd do as a co-mod. I don't have any experience running election games, dunno how well I'd do if say, asked ot make polls.

I am discontinuing this game. This is due to the fact that I have almost no time to work on it anymore, plus the fact that I have lost quite a bit on interest in it.

Oh and the rumor news thing is in case someone wants to drop in as King to replace me. Otherwise I will post a thing saying he dropped out, a different third party person can pop up if someone wants to.

Unfortunately, I'll have to drop out, considering I'm moderating a new game now.

Can I switch to Jindal?

So you would have Deval Patrick drop out and be Jindal? I'd be fine with that.

Jindal suspends his campaign and endorses Ron Paul for the nomination, citing a split in the conservative vote which would lead to a brokered convention, putting "party unity over party politics".

(Sorry, forgot to post this when I withdrew, had a busy week)

Can't wait for the new turn! Also just wanted to point out that it looks like whoever was running as Portman has gone completely inactive in the game.

Noticed that too. I'll look into it. If they gonna continue to be inactive I might just have to say they droped out. Also I need to redo polls before I post. I talked to wxtransit and they wish to have his last act as the character be what happened. I.E him dropping out and endorsing Paul. Sorry Vespucci. I know you wanted to take him over. Would you be okay going back to Deval?

I'd be Portman if his player dropped out (he's running the 2000 game, so that might be his focus). Patrick can stay in for the interim.

Is this game dead? (I think we are all waiting for the Debate and state polls before we campaign).

I apologize for the wait. I have been debating and have decided that I do not feel able to finish the game. I'd think people wouldn't want to replace the mod again. Most of you are in other games anyways. I'm gonna say the game is dead.

It was an honor to play this game.

If anyone is wondering, WfA is still taking players.

If WfA goes bust, I might do another game in which players can play as someone from my TL Good Ol'Rocky Top. I might make it soon if I determine WfA is dead for good

You should do a real life one not a made up one since I think people are more active in the more real life ones

Yes. Or may I suggest one with all fictional characters.
