That is the question.
Shakespeare references aside, though, I'm wondering if I ought to open this game up to other people, since Real Life seems to have eaten about four of our players.
I'm leery of just throwing it open, however, given experiences I've had with other LJ games I've run - where I got people who antagonized other players, submitted characters that were nothing but a collection of "kewl powerz," were too oversensitive, or just didn't fit in with the rest of the group. There were also people who participated in one or two scenes and then just...vanished (Seriously. They were there, and then they were gone.).
On the other hand, I really like this game and all of you, and I don't want to see it die for lack of players. I've had that happen more than once with other games I've GMed and played in, and it's never been pleasant for anyone involved.
So, opinions on opening this game up to other people? As andreu_blackman
's player said a while ago, the setting seems to encourage it....
