Oh, no, I really didn't think it was. It's just that... well, we have basically the exact same situation, with the ISRP taking the place of the Forge. Almost everyone who plays ISRP games (a terrible term, even worse then Forge games, though I suppose just as valid) says they're the most fun he ever had, but how many are we talking about?

In my case I actually have numbers. We estimate that around 10% of the local roleplayer population play the ISRP games to one degree or another. That's around 1,000 people. We further estimate (and this is where our numbers get a lot more accurate) that more then half of them are playing primarily ISRP games.

All in all our numbers are pretty good, but they could be a lot better, and we'd like to get them there. Any ideas what your numbers are like?

As for explanations - I don't think I have to answer to you, and I don't think I'm being insulted or anything of the sort. We're all friends here. But I do want to have that conversation about roleplaying, and since we come from different backgrounds it means that I'm going to have to explain myself to you a little and you're going to have to explain yourself to me. At least professionally :)
