After a good month of debating with myself and with Keryn, we have decided to close this game. It's truly heartbreaking for a number of reasons -- the friends I've made, the characters I've created, the memories I cherish. However, it's become increasingly evident that people have been losing interest and the game is all but dead. I would much rather go out now than let a few more months go by, stagnant, when it isn't fun anymore and it has lost all it's spark. I would much rather close the game now, while we all still remember how fucking AWESOME it was.
Please feel free to keep your character journals (and, of course, you can keep everyone over at konoha_cafe if you joined). This post will remain here as a memorial, my tribute to hs_no_jutsu, the first and most favorite game I've ever created and moderated. There is a little piece of myself in this game -- and a little piece of all of you, as well.
Thank you for making the time we spent here worth something.
Your drunken mod,
