Donate to The Endless Forest

Thanks to players like you we have been able to keep The Endless Forest online and absolutely free for everyone. Since we lost our funded support of the multiplayer servers we have depended on the community to help us with the ongoing charges and maintenance of The Endless Forest and we are happy to say this has been largely successful! It seems like this place is more popular than ever, the spirit of the project lives on! Smiling Running a multiplayer environment is not cheap. And though Michael and I have moved on to other projects that take our attention away from this game, we love The Endless Forest as much as you do and want to keep it online forever if possible. So, if you haven't already, please consider a one time donation or an ongoing subscription.

You can do so here: http://tale-of-tales.com/TheEndlessForest/donate.html

And even if you cannot donate, Thank you for playing and making The Endless Forest such a special place!



See you in the Forest,
Auriea.

No development grant for Phase Four

Our request for a grant to develop Phase Four of The endless Forest (or The endless Forest II as we are starting to call it) was denied by the Flanders Audiovisual Fund. As you may be aware, any major expansion of the game at this point requires remaking the underlying software in a new engine. The VAF have a rule against creating remakes that they invoked to reject our request. We tried to explain that the purpose is to expand the game and that remaking it is simply a technical necessity to be enable this. But to no avail.

But we have not given up, and are planning to run a crowd sourcing campaign to gather the necessary funds. As we are moving towards a completely non-profit status, however, we will need to wait a bit before we do that, for fiscal reasons. We're hoping to run the fund-raising campaign in Summer or Fall of 2016.

In the mean time our gratitude goes out to those of you who generously contribute to the maintenance of the game's server thanks to which you can all enjoy playing together. Please consider joining them.

Best wishes for the holidays and the new year!

See you in the Forest!

Michaël & Auriea.

Mother of all Gods and Goddesses


Ah, guess I don’t post a lot of art here anymore so hopefully a little spammage is okay. Herla and Gehirn are off on travels through Asia, currently they are in India and it’s been fun researching customs and beliefs. So you see there is a story and a reason behind Herla wearing this traditional Indian jewelry. In India women wear a nose ring pierced through the left side of the nose, as this is supposed to make childbirth easier. Thought that was very appropriate given their current quest, so nose piercing it is Herla.

'masquerade' (final version)

Singularis.

--
Many would consider me an idiot.
Many would consider me a fool.
Many would consider me insane.
They don't understand,
nor do they care to,
nor do I care to.

Inside me shakes a legion,
my heart pounding with each step they take,
And they march for my soul.

There comes a time when I must sleep
And let these beings, warriors,
angels, take hold of me.
If we get tired of the same place,
of the same person,
of the same world,
Why not tire?
Let it go.

Fylimar concept

How it had happened, he didn't know. One moment he was with his older brother, watching him practice his magic, trying to learn, and the next he found himself in this strange forest, unfamiliar, alone and scared.
Where could he go? What had caused this to happen? Where was his brother? And most importantly... how to get back home?


---

The idea behind Fylimar is that he was born in a neighboring forest realm and something went horribly wrong with his brother's magic, opening a rift between the two worlds and pushing Fylimar through. He's stuck here now, with no idea how to make his way home.

He's a RP character, as a fawn and when he grows into a stag (and he will be handsome and he'll need a mate! Laughing out loud ). Right now though, he's cowering near the Playground if anyone wants to meet him. Be warned though, he's shy and scared right now. XD

In game he can be recognized by the purple flowers and this picto: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y59/Karioudo/TEF/picto_Fylimar.jpg


Fylimar is a result of me needing an excuse to make an barn owl-faced deer. I used to play TEF years ago but I lost my passwords and couldn't bother to recover them, so I made a new account, doodled him up and here we go. Once he grows into a stag I will draw his adult form so be on the look-out for that. He's new so he's still very much in development, but I hope you guys like him so far. ^_^

King of Flowers

"The one that is always with flowers is considered a King. Is he truly of royalty? Or is it just a title he has obtained? This Duke... Prince... King of Flowers."

Mmm wow, hi TEF! Been awhile since I posted here...

YAY, Huron art... finally. He's my flowerbby.
Flowers just grow allll over him~

O Huron, you have no idea how annoying your braid tail is to draw!

I referenced many a deer in mid-bound for this picture. Curse you deer hind-legs and hooflets!
