Shallam long gone

RokRok Member Posts: 10
I've been gone from the game for years and recently returned to find Shallam.. gone! I'm sure this a has been discussed at length somewhere but I'm curious. Had Shallam become so quiet it was no longer a viable city or what was the reasoning behind it?

    IC Events happened, far as I'm aware. I wasn't playing that long ago, but if there was an OOC reason for it, I've never heard one. I doubt it, since it was replaced with another city.

    From what I've gathered, it was a re-posturing to make Good more of a volatile force so that Shallam wasn't always playing the role of the victim, but that there was a more dynamic ebb and flow to being the defenders/aggressors. 

    Not sure how true this is or what those talks looked like behind the curtain, but this seems the most logical.

    I found out the same when I came back. From what I gathered, Shallam kept being the peacenik apathetic city it was when I went dormant and.. well.. admin got sick of it and sent it to a watery grave as was much deserved.

    It was.  But long before I went dormant, it was an apathetic shitstorm.  It sucks they buried it, but honestly that was the best way to enforce the attitude change needed.

    As a famous quote says, "What's cooler than being cool? Ice cold!"

    Which, coincidentally, Shallam is now that it's at the bottom of the ocean.

    Dead and buried underwater pretty much covers ice cold!

     Actually that makes sense . I can see where Shallam might sort of sink into a victim role

    You can however still visit the ruins that are reachable. Poke me in realms and I'd be happy to show you. There are some of us old churchies still about. I was Archprelate when shallam sank, the church going along with it. hah. Feel free to shoot me a tell if you see me around, and we can chat and hopefully get you somewhat up to speed on things. :)

    No you weren't. The Church was gone before Shallam sank.
