This tag, unfortunately, again...  
Enh.... oh, gosh, I have no idea how to say this. I am going to sound like a total selfish flake for this, but since I sort of am one, it seems appropriate.

I've talked it over with Hayley, and decided to close Unreal again.

This time, I can really say I'm sorry to do so. I'm terribly fond of Unreal, and I've really, honestly enjoyed playing with all of you. This game is kind of my baby, and I feel really bad that I can't give it the time and energy it deserves. To be frank, I haven't had enough time or energy for much of any RP lately, and I think it's well past time I got out of it - altogether, and indefinitely.

Several friends have suggested that I just pass on the reins, rather than shutting down the game entirely. Unfortunately, ah, this is where the "selfish" bit comes in, I like it so much I can't bear to give it up for adoption. (On the plus side, um, at least it's not an actual baby? :D;;)

I deeply apologize to everyone, especially those of you who just joined recently and never even got to participate in a battle, or apped and never got accepted (if you're reading this as well). I'm aware that I'm pulling the rug out from under an otherwise pretty healthy game, which is a rude thing to do under any circumstances. But I feel, in the long run, this is the best choice for me and for the game at large, as things stand. If anybody else had been the one to come up with it, Unreal could have really been something cool, and I'm sorry I couldn't be the one to make it that kind of game.

I've provided a list you can easily plug into the Admin Console and clean out your character journals' friendslists without trouble:

And I invite everyone (who's not already in them) to have a look at our affiliates. All of these are great and stable games in their own right, so if you're interested, they are good ones to give a shot!

Again, I'm really sorry for this. I doubt Unreal will be opening again in the future, but I still hope our paths will cross again, somewhere out there. Until then: happy gaming, everyone.
