Stepping Down as Loremaster

Recommended Posts

It's been a good three months' coming honestly; but I'm stepping away permanently.

Three years ago, when @OccidentalAnvil was transitioning out and needed someone to step up; I honestly couldn't say "yes" fast enough. A'therys was my home since 2012 years and needed help, and I was more than happy to assist.

Although I've been less active in the last few months, this entire project has been an unforgettable series of meetings, calls, and discussions regarding the future of A'therys.

I want to thank everyone for your support during this project. It was great to rekindle friendships and forge new ones in an effort to find what the next phase of A'therys would look like. I'll never forget the ideas you threw at me and let me jump into, or the late night conversations with last minute edits.

Even though this last year was a whirlwind I'd like to take a moment to thank past and remaining members of the Lore Team; @Sellt , @Crash, @HaedHutner, and other members of the day-admin staff; and of course all of the Build Team and volunteers who made the effort to bring the world to life. Your input is invaluable in guiding the future.

I really wish I could've done more. There were many parts left undone and I know I fell short on some of the expectations many of you had of me. For that, I am sorry. All I hope is that I was able to nudge our home forward just a bit more towards becoming the ideal space we all want it to be.

A'therys will forever be a part of me and I look forward to crossing paths with all of you again.

Much though I'm sad to see you go, your time has come, as it did for me those years back. The world turns and calls us elsewhere, that's just how life works. I still remember the piece that introduced you to me, blending Fendelian ramblings with stilted Welsh; it floored me, inspired me, made me glad to see that someone had taken my world and run with it in a way I'd always hoped for. You didn't just use it, you cared for it. You wrote with a voice that was borrowed and yet all your own. When my time came, I could think of no better person to carry the torch, and now I know of no one at all. It is a choice that cannot be made lightly, for the foundations of this place are in the words we shared with the community. Without them, and the people who helped us craft them, this server could have been any other. What it may yet be, remains to be seen.

Good luck in your future creative endeavors, whatever they might be. I consider myself fortunate to have been privy to some of your other efforts, so I feel I can say with certainty that you won't lose your way. Just keep that obsessive spark, it serves you well.

"But where will you go, Master Ironstride? What will you do now?"

"My dear boy, I have no idea. And that is perhaps the most exciting thing. For so many years I've traveled, seeking answers to the questions in my dreams, the memories of a life not my own. I've climbed to the peak of the Ber Gholraggh, delved deep beneath the Sea of Glass. I've passed between worlds, seen the fraying ends of existence as they loosen from the Mesh. I've treated with dragons, waxed poetic with the First. Gods, it was I who chained the very Slumbering Isles to this earth, and strode across them like the Creator himself! Now, the phantoms are banished from my mind, and I feel as though I've been reborn. A life is a terrible thing to waste, so I think I shall go live it."

"I was there! For so many of those adventures, for so much of my own life. But now, I fear nothing else I do can measure up to it all. What should I do? You have your new life, but where can I go in the one I have left?"

"Olivair, adventures are made grand by those you share them with, but they are ever only yours. Our ordeals were as much yours as mine, never forget that. Treasure what has been, what we shared, but use those experiences as a lens through which to view the morrow. If there's one thing I've come to understand, it's that the best in life is always beyond the next sunrise. And for men such as us, it is in the unknown that we truly thrive."

    • A'therys Evo Returns (Plugins and Player Data Included!)
      Hello everyone, new and old! 

      As you may or may not have heard, we have brought back a functional build of A'therys Evo onto the server. We've noticed that a lot of people have been wanting a taste of the A'therys experience and having a place in-game to relive some of your favourite memories will go a long way towards achieving that.
