[5th Anniversary] Djinn Hunt

01 August 2017 - 08:07 PM

Calling all Djinn hunters! Seven Djinn of each type have snuck into the forum, looking for strong travelers to help reunite them with their friends. They are drawn towards clues of recent human activity, so you can find them in the most recent posts (made by anyone, images edited in by admins) of threads active within the past three months. These Djinn want to be found, and so are clearly visible, and can be 'captured' by the first person to find them and post (on-topic) in a thread after they appear. The member with the greatest number of Djinn at the end of the Anniversary event will be awarded a Djinn-hunting medal and points for their clan!

GS Pronunciations, part 1

11 June 2017 - 10:59 PM

How do you pronounce these names that come up in Golden Sun? I realize this might be tough to do without audio, but I've done my best with the text, haha. Syllables in capital letters are stressed/emphatic. If what I've typed doesn't make sense to you, or the way you pronounce something doesn't appear, feel free to type out how you pronounce them. x)

GSUN Discord and future plans

09 May 2017 - 02:36 AM

We are pleased to announce the unveiling of the GSUN Discord, a mixing pot where members of all the GSUN sites can chat with each other, and help us communicate between sites about different events and activities!

As far as those events and activities go, the staff of the GSUN sites are currently thinking about moving away from the huge quarterly mixer idea, towards more frequent, single events open to all and hosted across the various sites, with the primary goal to better suit members' busy lives. Anyone with feedback on that is welcome to leave it here.

I'd like to announce such an event, Golden Sun Against Humanity this Friday at 10pm EST, when everyone is invited to check out Discord to join us for some classic Cards Against Humanity, spiced up with custom cards related to the game and our community!
