With some activity taking place behind the scene on the Forums, I feel I should update people on the situation. Imperia has experienced a very chaotic past three years, and nearly saw it's death. The last year however, especially the last half year, has saw sudden growth with the return of many people from days gone by. The command structure was reorganized, with Jewel and TDO taking on positions. Jewel is currently acting as my right hand, in regards to Imperia. TDO has temporally taken on the mantle of overseeing the Forum's overhaul as over the last few years it became bloated and a little over-complicated. Right now, I want to touch on a few key developments.

1 - The Wiki: Thanks to Cirridyn, the new Wiki is up and operating. Already myself, James and a few others are exploring it, getting the hang of it and we will be setting up information on it. Given the Wiki is the most current source of information, it will take priority over the Forum and Website in terms of what information is most relevant. My involvement in it will increase as the temps decline in my area.

2 - The Forum: TDO is helping to redesign it, to make it less a requirement and more an option. Long term goal is it will serve as a stepping stone to the Wiki, and we are in the midst of reorganizing *EVERYTHING* on it.

3 - #TwistedBlade_Inn and #Imperia - Once more open for business, with social play and a few plots occurring randomly.

Now, this post is mostly about the Forum itself. As of last count, we have 118 members on it. In helping us sort out what posts to keep and what to toss out, I am going to ask two things of you all.

A - Reply to this post, and tell us of your current status. You are either Away with Intent to Return, Active or Departed/No Intent to return. You don't have to go into an explanation, just this will help us. If we get no response from you, as of 30 days of this post, we will assume you are No Intent to Return.

B - If you do not Intend to Return, assist us by telling us what to do with your material. We are giving the option of either telling us to remove/do a complete purge OR keep it for posterity. Requested removals of events, characters, or property which would result in harming the setting will be handled on a case by case basis at the Imperia Staff's discretion.

Things are improving for us, and they will only get better.

EDIT: If you are unable to respond by Forum, respond to me by Email at mdodd1978@gmail.com . Thank you.

I'm still floating around. Not promising activity or complete inactivity. Glad to hear that Imperia is still around. Things seem just a little bit more right in the universe to know this. I was thinking about dropping by sometime, but recently experienced some catastrophic computer failure, and I'm still recovering.

Very inactive, but who knows.

Make use of anything and everything you might come across that may be by me.

I tend to lurk and am somewhat active in the OOC channel. I'll try to be active in RP as well.
