No, no forummers have died. Forums, however, have. EH, as I'm sure you'll all know, is awesome. Or was, at the very least. It was great before it was archived and it seemed like that greatness could continue after it was reopened. And indeed it did, for a while.

While I stand by the decision a few months ago to reopen Empires Heaven, I acknowledge that it no longer has any significant activity or even purpose. It did originally, and because of that I think it was certainly worth reopening. That time is long gone and now Empires Heaven is ready to close once again. To squash any potential rumors in their tracks, no I'm not being forced into this decision and no it wasn't decided without me. In fact, I'm the one who suggested it. This heaven is a ghost, almost a mockery of the greatness of what it once was. It deserves to rest. You may all say farewell to the beloved (though of course you don't have to if it didn't really mean much to you; don't make a mockery of it). It should be easier this time, with experience of saying goodbye to EH and the knowledge that we'll all continue to see eachother. Last time, we knew we'd never talk to many of the forummers again. So farewell Empires Heaven and may you rest in piece and in the hearts of every forummer to have ever seen your beauty.

The Risk thread and DnD thread will most probably be moved to Empire Earth Heaven community forum. I suggest you just remake the mafia thread over there, Arvy. Its just in signups so it should be no big deal to just remake the thread.

At the moment there is no set time that this is going to be closed. The forums, at least, will likely be archived in about a week, time for people to catch the news and say goodbye if they wish. The rest of the site will be archived piece by piece I suppose.

And to anybody who's wondering, you can still download from an archived heaven, view the threads, and see all the content. You won't be able to navigate to it from the rest of HG, but if you just type empires.heavengames.com it'll bring you to the main page and you can browse and weep at your heart's content.

I've always been wondering - is this heaven Canadian?

"EH"

You have no sense of humor.

Actually I have a great sense of humor. I'm just used to more mean-spirited Canadian jokes and thought you were insulting EH. I didn't get the "eh" connection because I've always pronounced it "Eee-Aitch."

Quite depressing.

Will do. We can have three mafias going on over there at once, I suppose.
You mean to say I kidnapped Zen for nothing!?
Practice for next time!

Well, EH, it was a pleasure to know you. I suppose this was bound to come eventually. I just wish it wasn't so. I'll miss you, little though I knew you. Farewell, and may thy Archives never be lost.

I only really came here for mafia and because Sails was in charge, but I enjoyed my time here. I'll miss this heaven, inactive though it was. Goodbye, Empires Heaven.

Archived twice? Thats sad. And mean. Who would do such a thing? I shall go on a quest to OD, and there slay Zen or else go back to TWH.

I regret that the forum is closing, but perhaps it is for the best. My campaign remains uncompleted, mostly do to software failures on my pc. This has been fun participating in, and I wish everyone the best of luck in the future.

It is finished.

And ps the US was the best team in the game, no question about it. :-)

While this certainly didn't carry that the first archival's farewell thread did, people who actually cared got the news. EH will now be archived.
