There we were. A small group of brave players, with nothing in common except for that we were walking around in the city to catch the final moments of a great age. The Live D'ni was soon to end, and anything that was said or done would therefore echo in eternity.

We were the lords of the last day, and this is a group photo we took with sadness and awe:

After a while people started to fall asleep. This greeter, for example:
Click here for IBnetweasel and the cones

I guess this is where the cones go when they disapear before your eyes.

It could also be where Lync drags all the cones she can find, when a fellow Lord of the last day falls asleep.

Darth, were you still on when the servers stopped? If so, what happened? Did you get an error message or a loss of connection one? confused1.gif

My game crashed while I was linking, though I saw another player walk by when I couldnīt move. When I restarted the game, all I could get was a blank screen. This happened around 1500GMT, and I still donīt know if it means itīs all over.

Still trying to connect.

Oh, itīs sad.
/cry
I just hope the spirit will live here at GoG and in the other forums.
I will always remember this day.

Yes, I have managed to enter my Relto twice, but when I try to link I'm not going anywhere. The view is still there, but no controls and no linking.

That's exactly what I'm doing.
I'm taking a series of screen shots just to remember my Live Relto.

I have no wooden dock in my Single Player Relto. I'll miss it.
Staying around here as long as I can.

Thank you Darth for the photo of what may be our or my final moment in the city- I like the title- I enjoyed being lord of the city with my fellow rulers, however briefly.

"For we are all well met, though the circumstances be sad."

Shorah to Darth and all of you on the forums and in Uru Live.

Some of the mixed states of last night as represented by emoticons: sleep2.gif confused1.gif biggrin.gif down.gif and a bit inebriated from the drinks which Ad'ytum served up in the pub.

Ok, now I know what the end looked like.
The Katran server was down, that's why I couldn't link from my Relto.

I went to Achenar instead, wich was open, and waited among some others in the GoG Neigbourhood. Suddenly I noted that none of the others had moved for a while, and that no one seemed to say anything either.

I could still chat and walk around, but the others just stood still, all quiet. Not frozen, but moving slightly just as an avatar does when the player is passive.

I then realized that it had ended. They all stood in the position they were when the servers went dead. It was quiet like a grave.

To be really sure of what had happened I went to the coloured light buttons on the bridge. Nothing happened. I was on the other side, on a game server that had gone into oblivion.

Alone, like a single-player lord of the last day, surrounded by these ghosts. Ghosts of players that with no doubt experienced exactly the same thing.

This is sad. I took a picture, and have entered the names of the "ghosts".
