I wanted to pop in and let you know how much it means to me, seeing all of your support and worry over Saberlane. It’s very strange having an in-world avatar, it’s even stranger losing him.
Which we did. Saberlane is gone.
I wanted to let you know before you got too deep into pursuing him or trying to save him. I had a lot of reasons why I did what I did, but two primary reasons were that bringing in a new age had to involve powerful magic and sacrifice, and also I felt like Saberlane’s arc had been resolved.
The mysteries and narrative you will discover this year on the forum and in The Briar Society will expand the story beyond the happenings at Ackerly Green Publishing and this felt like the right time to make some big, painful changes.
However, if you want to continue searching for him, I will of course include it in the narrative, but it won’t have the outcome you anticipate. I don’t know about you, but I’d be tempted to do it just based on that statement alone, but you might be more benevolent and less chaotic than me.
I’m working on a bigger blog post with more in-depth explanation. If you have questions, ask them here, and I’ll either answer them or include them in the bigger post.
Don’t be sad. Or rather, don’t feel like there’s unfinished business. If you go back to Saberlane’s last post, on the night before Mirumagiqum, you’ll see he was saying goodbye.
