I have been playing this game for the better part of a decade but I can't play any longer. I am leaving the game for good and I wanted to thank everyone that made the stories and magic happen over the years. It is a bittersweet moment for sure, but the game just doesn't call to me anymore. I think after a duck knocked Arafel unconscious it made me realize that the game is just not my game anymore and it has lost its magic for me. The game had gotten progressively harder and I just don't have the time anymore to dedicate to it. I have made wonderful friends over the years and I wanted to say thank you to everyone for making good times happen. The playerbase is just too low. I will miss everyone and I will miss the game but it is time. Thanks to Tops and Roo for keeping the game open for future players and those already here. A huge hug to all of you and I wish you all well.

Oh man! I enjoyed RPing with Arafel the few times I got to. Best of luck to you!
I'm sorry to see you go 🙁 You were always interesting to play with. You either had me giggling or scratching my head as to why you might be chasing land dolphins. Though I understand your reasoning I hope you find something else to spark some magic for you and you keep safe and in good health <3 If you ever return I'll look forward to more silly stories!
This saddens me greatly. I felt you you were coming around more, but I completely understand. I was curious as to where Arafel's character was going to lead. I will miss RPing with you as you made this world a more colorful and funnier place to be. Please take care in RL and feel free to to come back from time to time. You will be missed!
Making the roughest diamond shine bright!
I had no idea you were you! I didn't get to know Arafel very well, but many of my favorite ICO memories involve Roofus and even Edric. And for that I have to say thank you to you! You're going to be missed but understand where you're coming from. Much love and good luck! I hope our paths cross again.
Roofus! 🙁 I had no idea you were he/he was you, either! I'll admit that I had a hard time growing accustomed to the new way things work with combat, too. (Dolly got her butt kicked by a fox, and I was ready to be well and truly finished, before I realized that ranged combat is actually functional now).
But, I also feel like the new pros far outweigh the cons. It just takes some time and patience to adjust, if you can wing it and find the patience.
I'm so sorry to see you go. I know that this game will never be able to replace ICO (*salutes its passing with much respect*), but I most definitely feel that there are positives that we have now, that were never available before. The dynamic itself is utterly changed, for certain, but there are areas and spaces that have been provided where we can create that same feel if we were so inclined to do so.
I know that you say you're leaving for good, and if so, I hope that you find something that brings you as much joy, if not more than ICO once did. I don't want to pressure you, or make promises that I cannot keep, but if you should choose to return, I'd be delighted to RP with you once again.
