Hi, everyone. J here. I want to first
express my appreciation at the patience each of you have demonstrated in staying
with us despite the long period of inactivity. For that, I take full
responsibility, and I apologize. I have not had the time lately I so
desperately wanted to give to the upkeep of these games.
That being said, I want to make official the hiatus
Ascendants and Halo are now on. Posting is suspended for the time being,
until a later date when I will again have the time needed to run these
I want to thank each of you for your creative
contributions. You have all enhanced the world of these games and made my
idea into something much better than it was before.
BUT--I also want to assure you that these groups will
not descend into cyber-oblivion. In fact, we are hatching a new scheme to
keep us all entertained and challenged until the games can finally become active
again. So it's with a bit of excitement and trepidation that I introduce
to you the concept of virtual seasons for both Ascendants and Halo. The
idea is simple, while the execution is complex. Myself, and a handful of
writers will take the stories currently underway or in development and continue
them as written chapters (or episodes). Those of you not writing can sit
back and enjoy the hard work of the writer.
I know this isn't the same as playing. It's not
meant to be. But I felt that this was better than the alternative of
letting so many good ideas go to waste or go cold. I'm sorry if this makes
some of you angry and you decide to leave. No one here will blame
you. You came here looking to rp, and we're not doing that right
now. However, I encourage each of you to remain with us and see this
through, sink or swim.
If any of you still have that rp itch you MUST scratch,
feel free to look at other rpgs some of us run. Just check the links
section in the group.
In any case, I will keep all of you updated on new
developments, and hopefully we'll crank out the first chapter of Halo's virtual
season soon, if all goes well. If this is a final farewell to some of you,
I wish you success and fun. To those of you willing to stay, I say welcome
aboard the newest idea. Let's see what we can do.
