Mod Announcement: One Year Remaining

Hello, Animus. We come to you today with a very important announcement: Tower of Animus will be ending in approximately one year. In June of 2014 the game will have reached its end. Why are we announcing this now? To prepare you for the future, of course! Here are some important dates:

The bestiary will close for new monsters in January.
Player plots will close on January 31.
Our last application cycle will be in April.
The final activity check will be next May.

This June will mark a very plot-important happening for the Tower, and as such the plot will become faster and more involved. While there will still be downtime (July, for example), Animus is going into a stage where the tension mounts up to its final conclusion. Of special importance is how this game ends depends on you. There are several options on what can happen at this point, and now more than ever the situation is going to depend on all of you getting involved and searching out ways to interact with the plot and break through the mysteries of the Tower.

Everything will be a little more clear once June comes, of course. Stay tuned! If you have any questions, you can put them in the questions thread as usual.

... I kind of feel like I do when I'm in the middle of a really good book that has absolutely drawn me in, and just realized I'm getting close to the end.

When the game ends... would the mods object to players creating something along the lines of a spiritual successor to the game? I'm not using the word 'sequel,' because obviously, we don't know what the ending will actually entail and if a sequel in the typical sense is even feasible. But I think I speak for several players here when I say this game is incredible, and we want it to live on in some way.

The 'good end' / 'bad end' memes being very good examples of the kind of thing I'm referring to.
