    Reaver I don't know if you can see this, but I apologize. I meant to answer your question about shops and I got distracted.

Greetings All,

It's been a very long time indeed, and no doubt Thain has seen many an addition or overhaul since 2004. I find it really quite amazing that what began as casual project full of excitement is still up and running after nearly 20 years. The last time i peeked in the door was 2014 to see if things were still going and its a wonderful thing to see that they are still in whatever form in 2022.

Thanks to all who have contributed their time and resources to keep the servers running and Thains changing stories evolving!

Random fun fact, the Poisonwood was inspired by the Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver [shameless name theft i know] About a missionary family trying to survive in Africa and the difficulty of planting their crops in ground that was too acidic to yield crops. It seemed fitting to run with the idea the ground was sour & have a race of mal aligned elves who's very forest and soil would be too toxic to any who dared wander there.

Don't know if it's still in the current version of Thain running but when it was built the gas effects crashed the poor Thain linux server non stop.

Hope that this finds each and all of you most well, and so very glad our stories and work from all who contributed over the years was, and may continue to be enjoyed.

So good to see you Vio! Thanks for giving us Poisonwood!

(It is still around and has some very dedicatedfans! Though a bunch of it was burned as a last resort after their war with Yu'syu.)

Drop by the Discord or the server anytime and say hi!

Fun fact: I found Thain my freshman year of highschool where I read The Bean Trees, which inspired me to quickly read The Poisonwood Bible in my free time. I thought it was a funny coincidence, did not realize it was intentional!
