As all things must do an end has come. The end of the Ruins of the Storm story. Almost two years ago I logged on to this community and met a great leader who shared my vision of creating a place that blended the line between tabletop and computer gaming. I am proud to say we (and I mean team members present and past) achieved that goal… but as anything must do to survive, we must evolve. The lessons learned from the time spent with this wonderful community has molded and shaped our team into a professional, courteous group of individuals who’ve helped me more than I can ever thank them. Including those who have moved on to do their own version of what we did here. It is good to see our inspiration drove such creative innovation to build variations of new worlds. In the words of my inspiration for being a creator, J.R.R. Tolkien “All have their worth and each contributes to the worth of the others.” I believe this to hold true in all regards for this community and our players. There were certainly a lot of memories made. Some enemies, but more friends. It’s truly been an honor that you all allowed me to use you as my muse to create such interesting content and make our world a living, breathing place. The story of Kyovolk and his ascension into the arms of Yog will go down in history as an event few will forget. Maybe the story of the Stormravens and their bravery will be tales told later on down the line to new players who join the server? Maybe Availia will always live in your hearts for those of us who wish to do good and help others in this hard land

This begins a new era for us here at Ruins for our Conan community and for our growing Atlas community. The stories do not stop here, they will continue. And that is what you, my new players and old are set out to do. Go forth, build new stories, help us build new worlds. Inspire my creativity to build the next Three Rivers or Port Dred. Those places were built from the stories the PLAYERS drove. Iah Deshret was also built from the imagination of Ayanna and
Strasmet. Along with Port Dred, Skoldheim and the Dragonwall. SO many of the locations we used as Roleplay hubs held such significant meaning to our players and I am proud to be the one to help bring these visions to life along with my team.
I am looking forward to the next chapter of this community and seeing where we go as a whole, together. Thank you all for your continued patronage and support of me and my team. I look forward to seeing you all in the new chapter of the Ruins of the Storm!
