On Sunday, July 16, the world will end.

Wait, don't look so bummed! It's not all worlds, just this one. In a few months this will probably be a hilarious memory rather than, well, terrifying.

Here's how it's all going to go down!

  • At dawn on July 16, there will be a great cracking sound heard throughout the city and across the entire island. At the same time, an uncountable number of Tears will open, scattered all across Ruby City. While these Tears appear stable, the sky around them definitely is not--the reality of the city itself appears to be cracking and crumbling, like an ancient painting. This will get increasingly worse until the end of the month, at which point the world Ruby City is in will fall apart entirely.
  • On Monday, July 17, Dil will make a network post with a simple but dire announcement: this world is falling apart, get out sooner than later or you'll be stuck here when it collapses entirely. Please note that Dil will not be responding to this post, so you won't need to wait on further information to proceed with endgame threads!
  • In case it wasn't super clear what's happening by now, by late on July 17, all visible animals including those listed in the bestiary will start fleeing into Tears.
  • Also on Monday, July 17, a catchall log will go up for all of your endgame threading needs! This catchall will be open to any former players or former characters who want to pop in, so that their characters can reunite with current characters, pop into the world they most want to live in, and have the best possible good end. This log will run until the end of the month, at which point the world of Ruby City will collapse and the game will officially close.

Feel free, current and past players, to use this post to plot, and watch [plurk.com profile] rubycitymods for further plot updates!

Shadow-Lover, never seen by day,
Only deep in dreams do you appear
Wisdom tells me I should turn away,
Love of mist and shadows, all unclear-
Nothing can I hold of you but thought
Shadow-Lover mist and twilight wrought.

Shadow-Lover, comfort me in pain.
Love, although I never see you face,
All who'd have me fear you speak in vain-
Never would I shrink from your embrace
Shadow-Lover, gentle is your hand
Never could another understand.

Shadow-Lover, soothe me when I mourn
Mourn for all who left me here alone,
When my grief is too much to be borne,
When my burdens crushing-great have grown,
Shadow-Lover, I cannot forget-
Help me bear the burdens I have yet.

Shadow-Lover, you alone can know
How I long to reach a point of peace
How I fade with weariness and woe
How I long for you to bring release.
Shadow-Lover, court me in my dreams
Bring the peace that suffering redeems.

Shadow-Lover, from the Shadows made,
Lead me into Shadows once again.
Where you lead I cannot be afraid,
For with you I shall come home again-
In your arms I shall not fear the night.
Shadow-Lover, lead me into light.
