Farewell, Necromundus

Today, I regret to announce that we’ll be ending the adventure on Necromundus in the near future.

Effective immediately, the main website at http://www.jointhesaga.com showcases only OtherSpace. The forums have Necromundus boards just for those few staffers still working on the game.

It wasn’t an easy decision to make. In fact, it’s a decision that I probably should have made back in 2008 when I was also weighing the closure of OtherSpace: Millennium and Chiaroscuro. In the end, we just don’t have the resources to support more than one game. And it’s enough of a struggle to promote an original theme text-based roleplaying game without adding the quirk of a MUD-style monster combat system. If I had chosen to close both OtherSpace games and Chiaroscuro to focus on Necromundus, I think it would have been okay. However, I chose to save OtherSpace and it appears that the space opera game will always be my favorite. So, rather than continue letting Necromundus go neglected, we’ll just let it go.

A storyline in progress on Necromundus will make it possible for characters there to make the transition to OtherSpace in a new mortal form, if they so choose.

Staffers on Necromundus will be welcome as staffers on OtherSpace – just drop me a line at OS and we’ll get you set up.

Thanks to all the players and staffers who’ve helped on Necromundus since it first came to life in late 2005.

      No, it won’t. But that’s okay.

    Well, not with that attitude it won’t.

      Ha! No, it’s just…eh. Reality is what reality is. Necromundus never really got any good traction and OtherSpace needs someone focused on it full time to keep it viable. So, it’s okay to let Necro go.

    Solution: Bring back RoE.

    A man can dream, can’t he?

      That’s not a solution – that’s another distraction. No, I think we’ll do much better if we keep the focus on a single game and roll onward.
