Hey lovely people of the Refuge!

The staff is excited to announce that we will be performing a forum reboot this summer! Now, you’re probably wondering what on earth this even means. To start, here’s a brief run-down of the "why":
  • It’s no secret--our forum has been pretty quiet for a while now. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.
  • Our beloved Golden Sun games, while still awesome, are not quite as relevant as they used to be (the most recent installation, Dark Dawn, was released eight years ago in 2010). We feel that a bit of rebranding is now appropriate.
  • Our forum software could use a little upgrading. Dave promises the new software will be much more dynamic and responsive.
And now, for the "what":
  • We’ll be moving! Over the next month or so, we (meaning mostly Dave) will be setting up a new board with a new url and layout for our community to enjoy. This does mean that you will need to create a new account on the new forum in order to participate in community discussions and events.
  • Rather than revolving strictly around Golden Sun (no pun intended), the new forum will have a general gaming focus. To reflect this, our community will be dropping “Golden Sun Adept’s” from our name to become simply “The Refuge”.
  • Scheduled to return: our cherished 4-clan system! After creating your account on the new site, you will have the option to join one of four rebranded clans. New world-building campaigns are bound to ensue.
  • Any previous world-building done on GSAR (i.e. Tellurian Republic, Draconian Federation, Aeolian Empire, Samudran Kingdom) will not be part of the official lore over at the new Refuge forum. Worry not, though! The GSAR forum and all of its contents will be archived for everyone to enjoy, and the new Refuge forum will also maintain a subforum dedicated to Golden Sun and our original GSAR shenanigans.
So what happens now?
  • The staff will be working behind the scenes to get the new forum set up and to prepare some preliminary content. We’ll keep you updated as new developments occur.
  • We hope to roll everything out by late June. In the meantime, please continue to use the current GSAR forum and Discord group to your heart’s content!
  • We have added a new text channel, #forum_reboot, to the Discord group, where we would love to hear your thoughts, questions, and suggestions regarding this upcoming transition.
Until then, post and be merry!

With love,
The GSAR Staff

Anyone interested in a live discussion and sharing input for the direction for The Refuge, please share your availability for this coming weekend, specifically for ~7pm EST Friday through to 3am EST Sunday morning, which is Dave's availability. The time stamps you see in the schedule are in your own timezone. No need to make a password to 'sign in'. https://www.when2mee.../?7057213-obySu

We'll share highlights of the discussion afterwards with those unable to make it, and input is always welcome here on the forums and in #forum_reboot.
