Forum deactivated for now

My absence from the forums of late has been due to a sheer lack of time. Those of you who have been keeping track of HSD in other locations like twitter, tumblr or discord know I’ve been pretty swamped of late, but beyond that, the time it takes to work on new products for the franchise and juggle other responsibilities just doesn’t leave enough for me to effectively moderate the forums. I had hoped that the login captcha would be enough to keep the place chugging along, but unfortunately it looks like the forums need fairly constant attention to avoid botting and disruption, and I just plain lack the time required. So for the immediate future, I’m suspending the official forums. I would like to reinstate them, but it’s clear now that I can’t do that until I can assign people I trust to keep an eye on it. My apologies to those of you who enjoyed discussions on it. I instead invite you to join the discord channel, which is easier for me to keep track of and prevent spamming of unrelated material.

“In Sol, the opportunities are limitless. There are fortunes to be made, legends to be forged, beautiful people and places, and endless pleasures to be indulged, whether virtual or in meatspace. At least, that’s what the vids say. The vids say a lot of things, really. Nadia had long since stopped listening. Being a genetic mishap in a world of engineered perfection means “opportunity” involves selling her body to fill someone else’s pockets, and selling her genome to the Reveidolon corp to supplement her otherwise meager credit cache. A stable existence, perhaps–she no longer scrounges for scraps on the streets, at least–but life in her hometown of Sacroden has become one stagnant trudge from day to day. Certainly devoid of any so-called opportunities.

Yet when an influential client has a heart attack and dies right in front of her, she’s put square in the bullseye of some of Sacroden’s most powerful factions–ones who’ll go to any length to protect their secrets and investments. Alone and stripped of any resources or safety net, Nadia is forced to start making opportunities for herself she never would’ve thought possible. They may not be “golden,” but if she can make them work, there’s a brand new life waiting for her on the other side.

If not, well…there won’t be any life left for her at all.”
