Hello everyone. Fritz here.
The Games wasn’t my creation. Originally, the Games was the work of people like Te and Hats and those on the original mod team. It was the tireless work of Lisa, whom this Game has really belonged to alongside Te. There’s been a lot of changes there in the team just as there has been in the playerbase in the four years this game has run. From Megan and Manda who helped in the Spring to Summer (or opposite seasons, as was for Megan), Lysoke and Reiko who pulled through and got me through some of the middling legs of the race before it was over, Danya and Ema who were around at the winter’s end, other mods and helpers along the way... And of course, those who were never mods but who helped me immensely both with their advice, counselling, and offering writing help when I was at my wits end (looking at you Michi,Terra, and Bri; I couldn’t have made it without you).
There’s been a whole lot to happen here, a little of it stressful, but most of it wonderful. We’ve all done some amazing things here. We’ve met new people, we’ve tried new means of storytelling and written our hearts out, we’ve stuck it by one another all this way. We’ve challenged ourselves and I feel it’s been rewarded.
This is only my second ever game and my first time modding so my experience has some bias. It’s a little funny, as I was never fond of the books, the Hunger Games. But I played here, with all of you and some who sadly couldn’t make it to endgame with us. This became my home game, for better or for worse. There are many people from here I know I will never forget. I type this now to you wearing my Mockingjay pin. I am so grateful to have had the chance to play with you and I am proud to bring this all to its close. Together, we made a fantastic story through and through. It was three years here for me, culminating to all this, a game embodying and growing bigger than the story this lifted off from.
I know when this all ends, many of us will part ways and find new pastures to play in or move on to. Before you go, I want to thank you all. I, personally, cannot think of a better game to play.
Fritz, Head Mod/Gamemaker.
Moving forward doesn’t mean having to say goodbye completely. From here we open the Games up to be a musebox. People may play as much as they like here, whenever they like. Personal post-game plots are absolutely allowed and encouraged. On July 4th we will be posting a 10 Years Later log but people are welcome to play out the time before then and of course the time after. We also have a Love Meme
that is up right now! Share your favorite memories from Games, thank fellow players, receive affection! And finally, here below you can plot out the future of your characters and let everyone see what is had in mind.
Happy Hunger Games
