Coming Soon... The Refuge: Reboot!

02 May 2018 - 04:18 PM

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

The time has come for the people of Weyard to set aside their differences and come together as a single community. Will you join us?

Ahoy, GSAR! It is with pleasure that I announce the launch of Forum of Weyard, a board made exclusively for roleplay as our favorite GS characters! The product of GSUN staff discussion, the FoW provides a space for us to step into the shoes of familiar characters and engage in some light-hearted RP with other fans of the series. You'll find many familiar features on this RP board, including an "Entrance Hall" and "Answer the Question" thread. Now the challenge is to create believable posts from the perspective of your chosen GS character!

A few rules and regulations:
  • Please register under the name of your chosen GS character, and update your profile picture to match.
  • You can choose to declare which character you are playing, or simply play anonymously! It's the characters we care about here.
  • Limit one character per person (for now).
  • Please do not duplicate characters already represented on the Forum.
  • Please stick to GS canon as much as possible (e.g. Iodem should not be portrayed using Psynergy, and Isaac should not go around claiming he's actually married to Mia). Of course, you have creative license to develop your character in areas where the games have left room for imagination!
On Tuesday, 8/1, we'll be launching a mini-adventure for all of our characters to get involve in. Be sure to check back then for more details!

Let us know if you have any suggestions for how to make this a more enjoyable and rewarding experience. Post and be merry!

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's already been 5 years since the revival of GSAR in August, 2012? To celebrate, we'll be hosting a week-long event filled with posting, games, and more. The fun starts on July 28-31, with a GSUN Mixer hosted by Golden Sunrise (see their awesome flyer below). Afterwards, we'll continue with more GSAR-focused activities through the following Sunday (Aug. 6). More details to come; we hope you'll join us then!
