Ya female interest would be awesome right about now. Lol. But maybe if you give more about the rp, there would be interest. Story, character sheets, etc. I know how you feel, I been here. It takes time to get interest. Just keep providing more things(bait.), and sooner or later you will get a bigger catch.
Also, I dont see why people couldnt play witches. Also there is only one Keeshin.
Oh, and I can play a female character alongside the male weopon I am making. She can be a weopon for someone as well. If people are not bothered by a guy playing a girl.
