|A letter from the STAFF @ THE FIFTH WORLD:
As you have all no doubt noticed, we haven't been around as often as we would like. Real Life has been intensely busy for us, and with plans to build a house (yes, actually build it ourselves), finish a certification, and change careers, it is only going to get busier.
Going forward, it doesn't look like we're going to be able to dedicate the necessary time to running the game, and so we will be closing it down on June 1. In the intervening time, we will continue to push the metaplot along, and work to help players find a closing point to the stories of their characters.
We don't want to be one of those games that simply disappears one day, because we feel that reaching closure with characters is very important. When we close the game on June 1, the wiki will also go dark, so please snag any information about your characters that you want to save before June 1.
We would like to thank Jupiter and Neptune for their assistance in running the game, and all of you for contributing stories, characters, and ideas to the collaborative experience that is The Fifth World. If you have a particular story you're still looking to tell with one of your characters, please don't hesitate to let us know via page, +mail, or +request.
As mentioned above, we will continue to support the metaplot and character stories up until closing on June 1.
This was a hard choice for us, because we have thoroughly enjoyed the stories we've told together, as Staff and as PCs, but we wanted to ensure that the game didn't collapse unexpectedly or wither on the vine.
Thank you again,
-Mars and Venus.
