Perhaps what you need to do is precisely that, let the mod die for some weeks. Then come back with a major update or such that will bring vitality back to Assassin Hunt. RW Bloodshed is surely a lot of work, due to the textures and depth of the mod, although I think Assassin Hunt, even though much simpler and a lot less complex, is more charming. This mod needs some kind of update that brings more players, not new details (although these always help, of course).
Could you by any chance, fuse together the ideas of RW Bloodshed and Assassin Hunt to create an unique mod? Or would it look messy?
