    So long and thanks for all the fish.

    Temporary closure of the server



    We just want to thank everyone who participated in this lore for all of their support. As we prepare to server for the next lore and prepare all the changes needed for this lore, we hope you will all return and make this next one as great, if not better than this last lore.

    So, the lore is starting to comes to a close. The next lore is being built on another server. So, what should we do with the current server until the next lore goes live? I figure we can leave that up to the people playing here.

    This is multiple choice as its like... 2 polls in 1. What to do with server, and should we make entire map open?

    I say open the entire map and keep it running, so that way characters can still have their arcs come to an end even after the events

    As far as I'm aware I was the only one logging in for the past few days. I can't speak for other timezones but overall it seems that only 2 or max 3 people even bother coming in-game and even that is every 4th or so day. I think it'd be best to just end the lore when it ends and close the server until the new one is ready.

    I got that feeling too looking at logs and login data and all that but... just checking to see what people wanted because it literally costs us nothing to keep it running. If anything... I was kinda also using this to gauge if there was any interest at all in something like a normal server also.

    From a player aspect, I would love to see it open to free RP and just be there without a lore for people to enjoy. Most times, if you find the right people, RP no matter what it is is fun. Sort of release a bit on rules as well for looting and just let at it.

    On the admin side of things, I would close it down so we can move the server and have the next map ready and make changes as necessary as we come closer to releasing the lore. This is usually how we've done it but who knows? Maybe it'll be fun

    Not sure if hypothetical player votes are allowed, but as someone who intends to hop in next lore my vote would be to shut it down for now.

    Give people some time to breathe. Let 'em focus on their new characters. If it's an open server for now, they'll burn out drafting throwaway characters for 2 weeks of open RP (just speculation, obvs not sure if that's what you guys are doing.)

    Again, all hypothetical and from the outside looking in. Let people get active in shoutbox, gossip on Skype about cool group char apps, and get hyped.

    (Edit: if this post is only for current players, mad apologies. Hmu and I'll delete this and take away the vote)

    Good to see youre back Devon! And on that note I agree with Mr Roberts. Not many people get on the server anymore, and it would be beneficial for people to focus on making and fleshing out their new characters for the upcoming lore instead on making a few more throw aways. That's what ive done.

    Like Legion said though, it costs nothing. So why not leave it running for players to hop on and just do whatever when bored. Or even, people could just hop on to test out hydrocraft shit and stuff like that.

    I don't see a problem with leaving it running if it doesn't cost a penny, just a free open server to play on when bored or to experiment/plan some things for next lore
