The Denouement

July 8, 2011 in Uncategorized, World 052 News, World News, Worlds 51-60 News

On this most auspicious of days, I dread to bring bad news.

While it has been a pleasure blogging for the world of 52, and covering all of its “happenings” the past six months, I regret to inform you that I will be retiring from my role as blogger. Indeed, I will also be retiring from W52 entirely.

I have timed this departure with my impending trip to Spain on which I leave this afternoon. I will be abroad all of July, and entirely unable to play TW in any form. I will also be starting my junior year in high school next semester, and highly doubt that I would be able to find time to blog and play such a diverse world like 52 among my classes.

It has truly been a pleasure – my nerves about blogging were settled with my very first edition, when I realized what an excellent and understanding reader base I had. Thank you so much for your supportive comments and occasional critiques, and bearing with me during my waning activity of the past month.

Today, I leave you with a précis of the past six months: the perfect culmination to my career.

Animated Map

You can really see how the world has changed! I advise focusing on one tribe all the way through, seeing how it progresses. I apologize for any grievous color discontinuities.

I would also like to take this moment to share the very first public map I made for W52:

Those were the top continent tribes at the time – none of them exists today. Who remembers which tribe they started out in? Who can see their first village on this map? :)

I now proceed to give a general breakdown of major events of the past six months, by blog. The dates are by the dates of the blog in which I covered each event – it will not be completely accurate to the real time of occurrence. I hope I didn’t forget anything!

Again, it has been a pleasure.

Thank you.
