I am a part of a pretty regular little RP group, we have played several games together, and every person has had a turn GMing on or another game. However, over time, life happens, other things get in the way, and the game often gets forgotten. So far 3 games have been lost to time, and a 4th is bordering on being dumped as well.
Personally, and this might be a flaw on my part, but I find it hard to let go of some characters - sometimes I might "re-invent" them in a way when I create a new character. But what I would really like to do is restart the old campaigns.
Some of the problems we have are:
- Our time runs on a schedule. We effectively have to "book in" when we want to hang out, and even then it's not a guarantee.
- Some players have left. Not everyone in our original group is available any more.
- It's been a long time since we last played any of the campaigns.
Because of this, the general level of interest has fallen rather significantly. What I have done is tried to talk to some of the group's members to see whether or not they'd be interested in running the games again, but due to the above mentioned issues, the interest isn't all that high.
The part that I'm most interested in is bringing others back to restarting the old campaigns. Most of them are ones that other people ran, so how can I try and convince them to restart their campaign(s)?
