Hello members, lurkers, and passers-by, and welcome to the pre-opening PSA.

It's been very quiet here and we felt it was past time to drop some knowledge. The game's opening has been in limbo for a while as we debated waiting to garner more attention or just opening and going full steam ahead with a very small group. At last head count the party consists of mods Ellis and Ollie, apped members Mil, Wings, and Spazzy, and two or three people who have reported an interest in applying/are actively working on applications. That is a very small group indeed! We're willing to go forth and make that work, because we figure even some small game action is better than nothing. It'll be cozy and probably a bit slow, but hopefully we can make the most of it! The setting has plenty to offer after all.

In the next day or two there'll be a pre-opening post from one of the mod characters, who will be arriving about a month before everyone else starts trickling in, and will thus have time to get established and be sort of a beacon for new characters when they arrive. Keep an eye out for that if you want to see how that goes down. And on Sunday the 25th, we'll open properly.

To start things off, there will be a communal open-to-all post, since characters will essentially all be arriving around the same time (at least in this first wave). Players can request to engage with NPCs, though at this early stage we'd really like to encourage forming character relationships immediately so players can start building plots around them. We have a small but very interesting spread of folks so it shouldn't be too difficult to get them interacting in neat ways.

And that's about that for now! Feel free to ask questions here or just say hi and introduce yourself to the little family. Thank you for putting your faith in this little baby game and for your patience as we sort this stuff out!

P.S. If you have not already done so, we highly recommend tracking this community. Most games operate via Plurk, but we're outliers and should not be counted and will be doing all the community updates here, so it's a good idea to watch this space for announcements!
