Now you have long time members like Shadow and Windy who have kept this game up as long as it does not inconvenience them. 
This is a fair assessment.   

Kind of a late response to this thread (personally wanted to avoid over-posting as I feel like w/ the given, sporadic activity; I didn't want to oversaturate & appear unavoidably abrasive [but that could just be the anxiety talking ಠ_ಠ])...
Buuut, thanks for that bit of insight, it really helps me get some perspective on the state of things, being some guy that's come out of the woodworks wondering:Spoiler
But I guess this brings me to my final position -if I haven't already stated it elsewhere; anybody know of some ongoing, patreon-esque platform whose proceeds go to anybody still involved in development or simply hosting a functional server?
tbh I don't think anyone is actively developing a Promi at the moment
Earth Empires is still trucking I guess;  it's along the same lines, but not really a promi (...iirc it's older than promi?)

There are some fairly mature versions of promi out there available for download, imo FAF is probably one of the more solid - https://github.com/jbarbero/frostnflame 
But QM(T) was probably the most widely used - https://sourceforge.net/projects/qmpromisance/ 

fwiw, it costs very little to host a promi with the normal <250 player count.   
Probs get by with the low tier $5/mo shared hosting plan most places offer.   
A loooong time ago when most internet sites were static iirc we did have a host get upset at us for CPU usage, but with the monsters most modern webhosts use it really shouldn't be a problem. 
's why I'm kinda surprised Disl said multiple people shut down their promis due to costs...  $60/yr + $15 or so for the domain isn't all that much.   'course, I say that while RWL mooches..   

If you wanted to launch your own go for it, I can provide some mild guidance if needed.

Hah, which ones did you get?   
There's currently four responses, it's set to pick one at random

Code: [Select]
    switch (mt_rand(1,4)) {
    case 1:
        $msg_body = "The acre is a unit of land area used in the imperial and US customary systems. It is defined as the area of 1 chain by 1 furlong (66 by 660 feet), which is exactly equal to  1 640th of a square mile, 43,560 square feet, approximately 4,047 m2, or about 40% of a hectare.  The imperial measurement system is weird.";
        break;
    case 2:
        $msg_body = "The US State of Rhode Island is approx 775,900 acres";
        break;
    case 3:
        $msg_body = "Beaches, plains, hills, mountains.  It's all the same to me!";
        break;
    case 4:
        $msg_body = "For the US in 2013, the median lot size of a new sold single-family house was 8,596 square feet, or just under 0.2 acres.  You've got $users[land] acres!";
        break;
}

I'm open to additional ideas, iirc it was Krowdon that suggested the LandFarm had a voice I just made it mildly informative.

Here you go -

Code: [Select]
        global $users, $lratio, $uera, $cocounter, $spellswork, $config, $cterms;
        if ($lratio >= 90) {
            $peasants = 0.1 * $users[peasants];
            $users[peasants] -= $peasants;
            $amt_armtrp = $peasants * ($users[ind_armtrp] / 100) * $config[armtrp][prod];
            $amt_lndtrp = $peasants * ($users[ind_lndtrp] / 100) * $config[lndtrp][prod];
            $amt_flytrp = $peasants * ($users[ind_flytrp] / 100) * $config[flytrp][prod];
            $amt_seatrp = $peasants * ($users[ind_seatrp] / 100) * $config[seatrp][prod];
            $users[armtrp] += $amt_armtrp;
            $users[lndtrp] += $amt_lndtrp;
            $users[flytrp] += $amt_flytrp;
            $users[seatrp] += $amt_seatrp;
            saveUserData($users, "networth armtrp lndtrp flytrp seatrp peasants");
            if (!$cocounter[hide])
                SpellSucceed(commas($peasants * ($users[ind_armtrp] / 100)) . " $uera[armtrp], " . commas($peasants * ($users[ind_lndtrp] / 100)) . " $uera[lndtrp], " . commas($peasants * ($users[ind_flytrp] / 100)) . " $uera[flytrp], and " . commas($peasants * ($users[ind_seatrp] / 100)) . " $uera[seatrp] have been pressganged to your $cterms[army].");
            $cocounter[armtrp] += $amt_armtrp;
            $cocounter[lndtrp] += $amt_lndtrp;
            $cocounter[flytrp] += $amt_flytrp;
            $cocounter[seatrp] += $amt_seatrp;
        }
        else
            SpellFail("You need " . commas((90 * $users[labs] / $users[raceinfo][magic]) - $users[wizards]) . " more $uera[wizards].");
    }

And I 'spose you'd like the constants -

Code: [Select]
// Troop Production Multipliers
$config[armtrp][prod] = 1.2;
$config[lndtrp][prod] = 0.6;
$config[flytrp][prod] = 0.3;
$config[seatrp][prod] = 0.2;

...we kept the original promi names on the backend, so
peasants = workers
armtrp = rats
lndtrp = weasels
flytrp = stoats
seatrp = skiffs

We're based on 18 year old QMT code and diverged from there.

And we do have built-in round themes I could run.
Forced teams, Emperor, Ladder, Storehouse, Race Roulette, no Leaders / Pub Market / Private Market....
None of them 'more important', just different themes with different styles of gameplay required.   

ie, for Emp rounds an admin would setup an account with a massive amount of troops, land, and resources with the goal being for the players to break him like a pinata. 
Those rounds were interesting to watch, different factions would form with different strategies -- some with the goal of simply swooping in and robbing the team that broke the Emp first. 
iirc one round the Emp remained unbroken not because he was too tough, but because the players squabbled amongst themselves, lol.   

The problem is most of the themes don't really work all that well with less than 20 active players, and we're lucky to pull five atm.   

In the past we've done membership drives, one of our admins even paid for Facebook ads.
But RWL faced the same issue as the other Promis, that when Promi was written there were much fewer online games and now there's a ton of 'em. 
And I think the ROC suffered with Jacques' death, but smaller websites have been mostly abandoned for Facebook, Reddit, etc... 

Basically...   yeah.
Wish you would have come around earlier  :P   
fwiw, I found RWL a few months after it launched, #116 first round.  Haven't always been active, but never really left.   A bit sad to see it so quiet, but then again I don't really have the time to devote to it anymore.

Woo critter prom reigns supreme (...many of the other promis kiiinda looked down on us, lol). 
Our playerbase has tended to be pretty friendly, esp compared to some of the other promis.

It's probably mostly the community that held people here, though the theme can bring people in. 
We were loosely attached to the ROC (Redwall Online Community), which has largely faded away, but we got a chunk of our membership from there.  

tbh we're about dead here. 
Many of the other promis shut their doors while they still had a larger playerbase than we do now.   But /shrug, one of my other sites is basically paying for the host so it doesn't cost me anything to keep the site up.   
As long as a handful want to keep playing I'll leave the game up, takes me a few min at the end of each month to post the results and reset so nbd.  If we get to the point where noone signs up for a round I'll close it up.

Hah, welcome. 

You are, in fact, late to the party.   
RWL turns 18 this year and is just kinda limping along, a handful still wander by occasionally.   
At it's peak we had somewhere around 200 active players iirc, this month's round ended with three. 

You're more than welcome to sign up for a round, we're currently doing monthly resets and I just did July's.  Feel free to poke the handful of other players.   
If you need any technical assistance send me a forum message, I haven't been good about checking my in-games.
