In some ways I agree that we need to advertise in game as well. However, it is a very fine line between probing interest and spamming. Players don't like constant messages about fleets trying to get established.
So, I think the first step is here on the forums, get 5 to make the fleet and then once we've got the fleet in game start PMing friends and new individuals.
Things have still been very quiet...I wonder if rp exists in the KDF at all these days.
It exists! But it is definitely rare to find someone who is willing to participate in RP lately.
... in some ways, you're even worse than the Borg. At least they tell you about their plans for assimilation. You're more insidious, you assimilate people - and they don't even know it. - Michael Eddington
Interested as well, eventhough i must say that most 'o the RP i have come accross did happen in a bar and was great fun!
My intent was not to judge those who enjoy Roleplaying in bar scenes. However, most of the old school roleplayers want role playing to take part in missions and more of a storyline. Not just social interactions.
Also, many who claim RP in a bar scene have alterior motives (like making online dating) which isn't always welcomed. That is why so many are wary about it.
Never the less, there wasn't enough interest to start a fleet up. sorry.
