Hello everyone! It's time for another State of the Game, and we've got some pretty big news.

The short of it is that Soulgemmed is moving into an endgame state, but this is not the end of the Soulgemmed community as a whole.

I've done a lot, and may I stress, a lot of thinking and debating on this decision. I love you guys as a player base, and you guys are the entire reason that this was a difficult decision to make. You're all incredible people, and together we've managed to weave quite an interesting story. For my first foray into modding, I simply couldn't ask for a better group of people. You made the game what it's been, and let me stress just how much I care about each and every one of you.

However... I cannot continue providing that experience as the game is now. Soulgemmed is a very intensive game to mod, and while I could try to find additional mods I don't think that would be the right choice. It would be difficult to maintain the same level of detail and involvement into events, and I do not wish to create a half-baked experience for you guys. Simply put, you deserve better.

That is why I've decided to move into an endgame situation. You deserve better, and I'm going to give you all the means to do so. After Soulgemmed ends, I will be creating another experience for you all.

The details are still fuzzy, but consider it to be more of a laidback sandbox-esque game, or a more structured musebox, or... I'm not too sure how to describe it quite yet. It will be invite only, and I'm extending an invite to all former and current members of Soulgemmed, though if you wish to move on to other games that is understandable. Apps will exist as more of a formality, there will be a very lax AC with incentives for more activity, and there will be events and an overarching plot, but of a much lower intensity. There will be familiar faces to all, and possibly new ones as well. The tone of the game will be much more lighthearted, but that isn't to say there isn't means for darker subjects to happen.

Also, Miki Morikawa will be your King.

But Bee, what's the timeline on something like this? When's Soulgemmed going to end?

I'm not entirely sure yet! I do not plan on closing Soulgemmed until this new experience is ready to go, as to give players the time to wrap anything up within Nyoi-cho, and to facilitate a smooth transition between the two. I suspect this will take at least two months, and I will keep you all updated if this changes. I am also going to continue with events within Soulgemmed until then, so please look forward to more fun while I get everything situated behind the scenes.

Bee, Bee! What about our characters?!

You'll be able to transplant your characters directly from Nyoi-cho to this new world, if you so wish! Or, if you want to bring new characters over, that's fine as well! You could even wipe them clean and start anew; it's all up to you in the end.

Bee! The narrative?!

The narrative shall continue, and there will be a proper endgame within Nyoi-cho.

And seriously guys, seriously...... I can't being to explain just how much this community we've formed means to me. You're all amazing and it's because of you I feel like I can do this. I've been in RP communities for a long time, and I've never felt so at home in a game. You guys are more than just fellow players--You're friends, you're a community of people that I care about dearly, and I'm honored to be a part of this community. I don't want this community to dissolve away, so I'm going to do my best to keep us all together.

Endgame Info & Plotting

On Sunday, July 16, the world will end.

Wait, don't look so bummed! It's not all worlds, just this one. In a few months this will probably be a hilarious memory rather than, well, terrifying.

Here's how it's all going to go down!

  • At dawn on July 16, there will be a great cracking sound heard throughout the city and across the entire island. At the same time, an uncountable number of Tears will open, scattered all across Ruby City. While these Tears appear stable, the sky around them definitely is not--the reality of the city itself appears to be cracking and crumbling, like an ancient painting. This will get increasingly worse until the end of the month, at which point the world Ruby City is in will fall apart entirely.
  • On Monday, July 17, Dil will make a network post with a simple but dire announcement: this world is falling apart, get out sooner than later or you'll be stuck here when it collapses entirely. Please note that Dil will not be responding to this post, so you won't need to wait on further information to proceed with endgame threads!
  • In case it wasn't super clear what's happening by now, by late on July 17, all visible animals including those listed in the bestiary will start fleeing into Tears.
  • Also on Monday, July 17, a catchall log will go up for all of your endgame threading needs! This catchall will be open to any former players or former characters who want to pop in, so that their characters can reunite with current characters, pop into the world they most want to live in, and have the best possible good end. This log will run until the end of the month, at which point the world of Ruby City will collapse and the game will officially close.


Feel free, current and past players, to use this post to plot, and watch [plurk.com profile] rubycitymods for further plot updates!
