01/08 - We have officially moved to chats. Contact an admin via AIM if you are interested. Also, since we have made policy changes, you do not have to be a registered member to follow updates. To our anonymous members: no worries, the members-only sections are still just that! You are welcome to edit and delete any personal data if you feel insecure, but please leave your posts. If you want those removed, contact Brittany.

Additionally, the forum may still be used for discussion and other RP, one-on-ones, side arcs, and CD, as well as just logging for people to read. I am not closing the forum, simply smoothing out the RP process.

10/14 - Announcement from Rook moved here.

Prelude to a new start; A new intro for a new/old era!

Good evening, morning, or afternoon to all of you!

As Brit has established, we are entering a new age for the group here. Or rather, we are returning to where it all began: Sonic Story. Now, you may or may not ask, "What does this mean, Rook?" And if you're not, please, humor me.

In essence, it means that spiritually we are becoming a gameverse exclusive RP once more. Additionally, it marks a renewed devotion to quality plotlines and character interaction. There will be no pussyfooting about this time, but let it be known that we, as a role playing group, will constantly strive to create an atmosphere of fairness and friendliness.

With that bit of business settled, I would like to draw your attention to a constant issue within our fandom. In the name of eloquence, I shall say it like this: It is not our place as a group to define an era of Sonic as "gameverse". Retro and modern are to be taken in stride, for without one or the other, Sonic is not where he is today. Gameverse, for all intents and purposes is defined by all nineteen years of main line Sonic games presented to us. While we may not directly reference them, per our rules, we do acknowledge them. Sonic is still Sonic within an urban setting based upon a real place as much as he is when chasing Eggman across South Island. This is not negotiable, nor should it be, for we as a group embrace the idea that this ideal allows for a great deal of flexibility, the flexibility that defines "Sonic Story" within the source material it draws from. We are just as likely to use a brightly colored, more fanciful and lush backdrop as we are to a modern, more realistic one...often in the same arc.

Now then, I have little more to say other than the fact that I tip my proverbial hat to all of you who have remained with us throughout the tumult as of late. Welcome to Sonic Story, folks, welcome once again to the world we once only experienced through our televisions and systems, and finally, welcome to what I consider as much a community as it is a family.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I'll see all of you around the forums!

As Story Lead, my responsibilities include the upkeep of the general plot, it's direction, and any odds and ends that involve the stages. Beyond that, it is my wish, and my duty to facilitate any ideas that may come to me from those in our extended SS family (given that they are reasonable, of course, or can be worked to a point where they are). In light of that, this is as much your story as it is anyone else's, therefore, I encourage all of our members to talk with me via IM, PM, or another means of communication. Remember, an idea not spoken is an idea lost, so if a lightbulb pops on, just drop me a line!
