Staff Changes

Please take a moment to read this update with information on Storyteller staff changes.

Staff Retirement

We are very sad to announce that Nymph and Harpy have each elected to retire from staff. Please join us in thanking them for all of their support and hard work!

Nymph is an staff member whose presence will be a gaping hole on the team. She has been one of the backbones for Standing Trials over the past two years, and her contributions have been enormous. She became the stalwart champion of the Southern Region and put a lot of time and creativity into developing Desnind and Augiery. On top of this, she has developed blessings, cities and races. From the Mer and Sev'ryn to the blessing of Sevrath, Nymph has been a constant driving force behind the site and the evidence of her hard work can be seen in every region and area. She ran Saoire for the past two years, she took on countless modded threads, and she has done even more behind the scenes to support this site and our team. She has our sincere gratitude all of the time and effort she’s poured into Standing Trials.

Harpy has also contributed in a number of ways, from modding Ne’haer to coming up with great stories and reviewing threads - and let’s not forget her gorgeous templates and constant support for the team. Her presence on the team will also be very missed.

We hope that both Harpy and Nymph will remain active here on their character accounts, and wish them all the best in their future endeavours! In their absence, Ent will continue to be the Storyteller in Desnind while Jade has joined as a Storyteller on the Ne’haer team.

New Staff Member

While it's true that we will very much miss Nymph and Harpy, we are thrilled to welcome a new staff member to the team. Oracle has joined the Storyteller Team and will be supporting Rumour (me!!) in Rharne. We think she’s phenomenal and are certain you will too. Be sure to welcome her when you see her around the forums and Discord!

If anyone has any questions about these staff changes or how they might affect your character, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or a staff member you trust via PM.

New Review Thread!!!

Hello lovelies!

There's a new review request thread here with a slightly different first post to it - the review stamps have been put in alphabetical tabs. This is to make our coding lives easier as adding in new stamps in a columned list is a bit of a challenge! Please put your review requests in this thread from now on, and our reviewers, please continue reviewing the old thread, till it's done.

Thanks for all the fabulous stories you write!!

Staff Change


It is my regret to inform our players that, after a long time served as both a regular Developer and as a Team Lead, Djinn has elected to step down from staff. He is responsible for a fair few blessings, helped provide feedback on many of the magics, and is responsible for introducing the Dev Team, and by extension staff as a whole, to Trello, and helped to get Rynmere going and ready for Muse and Khymerah to take it over. Hopefully, he'll come back to staff later on, when he feels the time is right, but for now, we must bid him farewell.

Staff Change

It is my regret to announce that, due to IRL complications combined with the stress of staffing, Muse has elected to step down from staff. We wish her all the luck in the world and hope she returns when she feels she can. In the meantime, Rynmere players can expect an announcement as to what's happening in Rynmere regarding moderation fairly soon.

Staff Change!

Hey everyone!

So, as Basilisk said above, we've said goodbye to Muse. Obviously, her enthusiasm and energy is missed throughout the site, but especially in Rynmere. We're aware as a staff team that Ryn has undergone a series of mod changes and so, we've made the decision that Basilisk and I will be joining Plague there. This will mean that I step out of Ne'haer, leaving it in the very capable hands of Jade and Chronicle.

What we're going to do as a team of three is to have next season as an official "no modding" season. Now, whilst that might seem less than enthusiastic, it really isn't! We're going to work on bringing the Lore up to date, on getting everything completely ship shape etc, and continue the great work that was already being done there to do that. Up until season change, we're going to be pottering about - setting up some Q & A stuff for existing players, that kind of thing.

Then, next season we'll put out a minimal calendar with some self-mod stuff, and really focus on consolidating the excellent place that Rynmere is for our players.

Thanks, all!
