On this particular night, I hung out there for about two hours, and I never did see anyone else come through. It was a ghost town. Now, of course there are always busy nights and slow nights, so I hoped that it was just a slow night. But as the moments kept slipping through the hourglass, I got more and more concerned. Eventually, I hit the portals and shot off to Stormwind. You could always rely on someone hanging around Stormwind park, chilling at the pond or one of the many bars there. But, on this night, nothing. Not a soul was around. I'm pretty sure even rerolling a female nelf and hitting the mailboxes wouldn't have produced any roleplayers.
I have been able to catch a little RP here and there recently, but there's no missing the fact that we're in a pre-expansion lull. While raiders are busy smashing Icecrown Citadel and PvPers are rocking out in the arena, there's just not a bunch of new content out there for roleplayers. We've seen this before, of course, but it's still a bummer. Roleplayers just aren't logging on right now, at least not with the same reliability they used to. So, what do we do with ourselves while there's an obvious lull such as this, besides eagerly contemplating the backstory of our soon-to-be worgen and goblins? What have you been doing to keep the current roleplay content fresh?
