Immortal Darkness: Newsletter #1
December 22nd, 2008
Who would have thought a year ago that a fledgling little RPG site called Approaching Darkness would become what it is today. Merely a small site based off of its predecessor – The Jedi Enclave – Approaching Darkness started off small with only a handful of members. Since its inception at the hands of MizzeeOH (Magenta Marr) and Zinnos (Darth Aeacus) on September 2nd, 2007, Approaching Darkness has become the first of multiple RP sites now under the home page of Immortal Darkness. First Beckoning Darkness, under the command of IronFist and Ariel Erose, then Discussing Darkness and Crescendo, and now finally Calculated Darkness– which is commanded by Lord Iurus and Lady Katanra. From 28 BBY to 600 ABY, the sites on Immortal Darkness cover a lot of ground, and open up a new world to explore in the Star Wars Universe.
With our co-admins and global moderators – Ixtren and Lexy Cole – the sites on Immortal Darkness pride themselves on their welcoming and happy communication between members. Through the good times and the bad, the existence and communities on Immortal Darkness have survived and percervered. We also have a wide variety of members- among them Lady Hyper, Serial Killer (Realist), Whip Lady, and Hutt Lover. Over the course of the past year, the Darkness sites have gone through many changes- from purple, to blue, then red. Banners have been changed numerous times from block images to photoshopped. The current banner on Approaching Darkness was made in honor of the holidays by Ixtren. Ranks have changed as well, growing more prestigious each set.
Immortal Darkness has now started a string of interviews including interviews with authors Drew Karpyshyn, Elaine Cunningham, and Mathew Stover, as well as a live chat with author Kevin J. Anderson. We are also proud to announce our upcoming interview with Walter Jon Williams, author of the bestselling New Jedi Order book, Destiny’s Way. Questions are due on January 15th of 2009.
Thank you for reading and expect another newsletter on January 1st, detailing the Walter Jon Williams interview as well as the many new updates coming to the Immortal Darkness sites.
Wishing the best and happy holidays,
The Administration of Immortal Darkness
