NEWS & UPDATES
The second part of the GSARP prologue, Light and Glass, is now up.
Hello everyone! The promised plot teasers for the GSARP have arrived at last. I apologize for the slight delay in getting this to you, but I hope you enjoy it and I hope you are feeling excited for the start of the GSARP!
I am pleased to announce the official title of the first campaign of the GSARP:
Golden Sun: Alchemy's Reckoning
You can read the first part of the prologue, The Unnatural Storm, here. The second part of the prologue, Light and Glass, will go online sometime tomorrow night.
Please let us know how we're doing and give the GSAR team some feedback in the GSARP prologue discussion thread. We would love to hear from you!
It's a dead end - the thief is backed up against a wall, staring fearfully in your direction. Your pouch is clutched tightly in his hand.
However... something about the whole situation seems off. The feeling of being watched that has been plaguing you all evening has returned in full force. And if serving under the Town Guard for the last decade has taught you one thing, it's how to recognise danger...
S E V E N
Had to delay this slightly as I won't be here tomorrow, sorry.
I have decided that, given my busy schedule, it would be a good idea to try to focus on a single forum feature to be worked on and hopefully released each month. So I've listed a few features that have been in the pipeline recently - please vote for the one which you would most like to see completed this month. If you want to to rank them by priority, you can do so in a reply to this thread.
This is more to gauge community interest than anything else - I might end up working on more than one feature throughout the month, or none at all. And please note that this is in no way a promise that the 'winning' feature will be chosen or will actually be completed in the time period (especially since we're already almost 1/3 through the month)... but I'll try my best =)
I haven't included big projects like AotA (will have an update on this in April), though I might choose to dedicate a month or two to it later in the year when it'll be easier to make more significant progress.
A few days before the end of the month, I'll ask for a list of potential requests for the next month.
I will most likely be typing up a proper announcement later this weekend after I have spoken to several members, but recent events have necessitated an immediate response lest anyone get the wrong idea of what kind of behaviour is acceptable within our community:
In my absence, the words of another Administrator (Ryu, Zip if he's ever around) is law. In their absence, the words of a Moderator (Patsy) is law, until someone with higher power can step in and deal with the situation. While I can understand that some people might be unhappy with this, it's just too bad. This community is quite open in terms of what members are allowed to do, and in order for it to stay that way, a clear power hierarchy is necessary in situations where administrative action is required.
If you honestly believe that an Admin or Moderator is abusing his or her power, or makes a request that you honestly think is not in their power to make, take the matter to me, and I'll respond as soon as I'm able to. DO NOT throw yourself into a rage, refuse to comply, and start publicly verbally abusing the person in question. It's highly disrespectful, and achieves absolutely nothing.
I may now be forced to write up an official document concerning Forum & Chatroom Conduct (as well as a list of possible punishments for infractions) - I really didn't want to do this since I'd like to believe that members of our community can act with restraint and common sense, but I may do so if the rest of the staff think it's a necessary action going forward to prevent situations like this from occurring in the future.

What exactly is it? Essentially, an interactive story with some interesting "gameplay" elements. What is it about? You'll have to wait and see. All I can say for now is: things are going to get strange.
The Prologue is now live. It's very short and very basic, and in no way indicative of what's to come, but it's more of a test of group mechanics than anything else. The next update will come sometime soon, depending on whether or not any major errors are discovered.
To get started, take a look at the little box on the sidebar of the board index.
