Hello everyone! I know that unfortunately things are very very slow here. I am one of the guilty parties, however, as I rarely have time to build, which while annoying, I never really change. However, I have very much enjoyed much of the time, the posts, and the personalities that I have been able to interact with here on this forum. Thus, my question is: are there any other roleplaying groups or forums that people like to post pictures to? I would love to be involved (even if only part time) with such a group as I have enjoyed here

I'm not aware of anything at the moment, other than the boilerplate EuroBricks and Flickr. Seems like forums are overall experiencing a bit of a lull. Not sure if it's relegated to the Castle theme, Lego as a whole, or if it represents a bigger trend of moving away from the forum format and migrating to apps like Instagram.
I think the lack of official castle sets has definitely had an impact. I was going to say it's been a couple of years but looked it up and the last Castle theme sets was actually 2013-14 so this year will be over 5years!? (I realise Nexo knights was technically filling the castle quota - but I'm talking about a 'pure' line).
Forums and fandoms like ours need enthusiastic TFOLs with time on their hands to keep things buzzing and I imagine most new TFOLs are probably into current themes (Star Wars, Super Heroes) than searching out old ones.
As for activity, I'd be up for another round of 'Tales of Merlins Beard' if someone has an idea to run one. I'm also thinking about writing a final challenge to wrap up Lands of Roawia as it would be nice to bring some closure to that (if no-one objects!).
