Thank you, Rob.

I've been fan since the Nuren Campaign, and I've thoroughly enjoyed everything you've given to your communities (be they the URealms community, your twitch community, your YouTube community, etc). I wish I'd gotten to be at more of the live shows for URealms over the years, pretty sure I only actually made it to a few of them for more than 20-30 minutes, but I've watched every episode of every campaign on YouTube since the live shows began. I may not have been around for the Unforgotten Realms comics or animations back before the live shows, but I'm so glad to have found your content.

Way back in season one, I introduced my sister to your content (her favorites have always been the "Played It For The Plot" series), and during season two I introduced one of my now-closest friends to your content too. He and I have played a few homebrewed games of URealms with a couple other friends, and we've watched a fair few campaigns together by now. My (unfortunately now ex) girlfriend of three years and I watched almost every campaign together after I'd introduced her to your shows, as well, and from what I'm aware she's still a fan too. Your shows have helped me build relationships and find common ground and interests with people who I either had little in common with, or had drifted away from.

I just wanted to put this out there to thank you for the community you've built and all the work, stress, and hardships you and the rest of the team put yourselves through for our sake. I'm sad to hear about URealms coming to an end like this (for now), but I'm hopeful that all of us fans can rally and help support everyone for all the work you've all put in for us over the years. Maybe if we're lucky we'll get live shows again in the future when we've earned it and if you've found that passion again.

So, as the title of this post says, if you even see this, thank you, Rob. From me, my sister, my friends and loved ones, your fans, and everyone who your content has touched. Thank you so much for what you've done and will hopefully continue to do.

  • I'm glad you enjoy the show. I think no matter what happens next year, your going to still enjoy it by the end of Christmas 2020 robSneakyMouse
  • I'm definitely looking forward to whatever it is you crafty ones are up to for 2020. I don't think I ever won't enjoy the shows. I'll still talk about them whenever I play other tabletop games (or hopefully, official URealms games! Might have to convince my tabletop group to run one of those sometime soon...), and I'll certainly still tell people about the show. The amount of people I've gotten to watch Murder Bros and Buckeroos (my favorite set of campaigns) is going to keep growing no matter what.

    Thanks again, Rob. Can't wait to see what you get up to next.
  • Well Rob it's been a pleasure all these years. Started watching you UR flash shorts when I was in middle school. I've grown up with you as a creator and yes I'm sad to see it end, hopefully not forever. I get it we all have issues in life that take place or we get burned out. I understand the loss you've felt with players leaving and doing all the work. Please never feel like you're alone it this. We are YOUR fans. Let US help you. Im sure numerous viewers would join up at no cost. I would. But again if it's tearing you up and burning you out, take a break. Work on you, I had to do that myself after quitting a job that I loved but it just was too much demand. I'm getting off topic now. Please never forget MOST if not ALL of us will support you. Don't lash back and be the better person man. Hope to see you turn around. Peace out boyscout! 
  • i wonder if the site will continue to exist... 
  • @migueldcr They have said that there are no plans to close down the forums.
  • I enjoyed the show in all its complexity and simplicity, URealms shows made me excited, the shows that are capable to excite me are very few...(3) 
    Well watching roleplaying battles was the fun part to me, the overcoming the impossible odds, the 20 or 1s, and the lore's unconventionality was interesting and novel 
    Let's see what the future holds...

     
  • when you think about it when rob wants to pay players 12% of the total show for roughly 12 hours on a Saturday when iron man made only 8% in endgame for months of work. just a thought
  • @Megalomaniac Not saying I agree or disagree with you here. But Endgame also had a LOT more than 4 star actors. 
  • @Megalomaniac @MasterDJV ;Also Iron Man's 8% is 1000000% (or something) more than what URealms as a whole makes. Sure you can argue that that this 12% is too much payment for these people we know and love, and rawb could just tell them to take less or get other players, but I think rawb is allowed to decide that he wants these people, who make the show what it is, a decent amount of money. 12% of the profit isn't a lot when you consider that they are on screen for 100% of the live part.

    i still think 3k for 12 hours is still a lot but i see what you say
    i do have other topics like this one that i would like to hear another side of if anyone is interested in a debate

    What's happening with the whole donation thing? Is he no longer accepting them? The donation page says there are no current donations.
  • @Sweatingdwarf123 We didn't make the November goal so we failed my man. Didn't make the monthly budget. 
  • @Rob
    Damn that really sucks. I was ready to give what I could each month. Here's to 1 last year of amazing content! Thanks for more then a decade of entertainment. 
  • Oh shit. I finally got my financials in order and was gonna donate
  • edited December 2019
    Eh, Urealms died the moment you announced its cancellation this pitiful resurrection donation goal was doomed to fail, hope you are gonna give back the money to those who still have a shred of faith in you @Rob ;
  • @Bjort
    I gave money to it. I don't feel like I need my money back. I donated knowing full well it could not get fully funded. It sucks it didn't work out, but he doesn't need to refund anyone over it. 
  • @Bjort it wasn't a donation goal to resurrect, it was a goal to rest it. You don't value me or my work my man.
  • So if we did reach the goal then it would rest? And now that we haven't its awake! Huzzah Urealms is back Ya'll @Rob ; 
  • @Bjort Im sorry your disappointed, but you are just being rude now man. If your only here to hate at this point then its probably not worth your time anymore.
  • Yeah man I don't support the whole way the situation has been handled but you have overstepped a little bit here @Bjort
  • @Sweatingdwarf123 Fairly certain it's way more unacceptable to say which of your fans don't value you or your work because they're discouraged with the direction you're taking your content in.
  • @Bjort @SMSoo man, can you do this in a thread that isn't literally called "Thank you, Rob?"  I get your upset with how hes handled it, I am fairly certain everyone has there own problems with how the situation was handled, but can we not do it here?  This is a thread for remembering the good times in the past and thanking Rob for them.
