If you're that dissatisfied with Sryth then write to the GM with your concerns. I personally am still quite happy with the game, and I've been playing since October of '04. Sryth is not only the first truly accessible online RPG I was ever introduced to but it's the ONLY one that's consistently kept my interest in all the time that I've played it. Neither Kingdom of Loathing nor even Core Exiles has managed to do that. Then again I'm more of a fantasy fan than a Sci-Fi one so it's not entirely surprising that I eventually lost interest in CE. But Sryth has always managed to hold onto my interest. True I do manage to access most of the content but in all honesty I don't donate all that much and not often. Anyway you don't have to buy a residence to enjoy most of the game. I just think of the adventures associated with them as, for lack of a better term, side effects. And anyway there really aren't many of those yet so you really aren't missing much.

Well, I neither mind donating nor subscribing to a game, --- -with Sryth though I think it's gone far too far really, sinse now your needing to get more game content by spending adventurer tocans on things like residences and the quick stone, ---- apart from the fact that the gap betwene those who spend a lot of money on tocans to up their gear, and those who do not (and the corrisponding difficulty of some of the game encounters), is just growing.

Ce is also a business, and works on the same model as Sryth, ---- in that you subscribe to get some basic bennifits such as extra fuel, then can buy game extras. One of their key tennits though is game extras must never unbalance things, ---- so no fueling your combat ability with power alone.

Also there is no urge to donate to get extra content, ---- as with Sryth and the quests.

I'm actually rather sad to see where Sryth has gone, ---- being as I played from 2005 onwards. I admit though, when I start up the game and told I need to pay At's to access a quest via buying a residence, ---- or that my melee rating needs to be another 20 points higher which just won't happen unless I donate even more cash, ---- I decided it was too much, ---- and that from somebody who has already donated significantly to the game.

I do drop in occasionally to see what can be done, ---- but not too often I admit.

If it sounds as if I'm being unreasonable, bare in mind the mechanics. 20 dollars a year, and the game has at least 5000 paying customers or more, ---- What's the need to squeeze for more money.

Donation bennifits to games should be just a nice thank you, ---- not a necessity for getting game content.

I have a mind to E-mail the Gm and express my dissatisfaction with the game at some point.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
