We interrupt your regularly scheduled threads of "Home Connectivity Issues" and "I wan't a refund!" to bring you the following breaking news. NOTE: Due to recent issues with Playstation Home, this report is coming to you several days late.

 

01/05/2014 Breaking News: We have received a copy of a confidential letter from an anonymous source, sent by a spunner known as The Architect to Uncle Spun. This letter describes in detail what would happen should the Spun Seasons in Spunland fail to be observed. Our source has told us that this situation has indeed come to pass. "After the disappearace of the Spun Queen, the majority of Spun Engineers left Spunland Mansion and only a skeleton crew was left behind to maintain things. This was the state of things for several years but recently the remaining engineers were laid off following an eviction notice and no one was left to take care of things during the latest seasonal change."

 

A copy of the letter can be viewed here: http://spunland.blogspot.co.uk/search?updated-min=2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2016-01-01T0...

 

Among some of the ill effects described in the letter is the appearance of Unspun Worms in Spunland. Reports have been coming in that at least three of these beasts have appeared. The following pictures were taken at the scene. Please be advised that they may not be appropriate for sensitive viewers but we're going to show them to you anyway. We will continue to follow this story as it unfolds.

I'm sorry about Spunland, but I'm even sorrier about Sam's coffee addiction. I know how hard it can be to break that habit, Sam!

The above comment is my opinion, except when I quote someone I disagree with, and unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

Big Spun Thanks @Ren_Echo - have a glance at our facebook page when you get the chance :-)

 

Oh and for anyone who would like some spunemes to add to their expressiveness on forums or elsewhere have a look here - just 'copy image url' on any of them to use - all are .png files with transparent backgrounds.

 

May the Spun be with you All!

@sam1online  Sadly Sam it is. When the news broke I quickly traveled to Spunland to see if it was true. I arrived during a Spun Storm and everything looked normal. However, after the Spun Harvest I noticed something moving in the distance. At first I couldn't make out what it was but as it approached I realized it could only be one of the Unspun Worms discussed in the letter. They seem content to just watch for now but I suspect they will become a problem as the amount of Spun in Spunland diminishes. Between this and the attack on Aurora, truly we are at The End of Days. We're going to need a lot of coffee then...

 

 

@madmunkid Spunland Thank You Small for the facebook shout out.. Here's a spuneme in action, lol. Seems its time for me to update my Neotopia signiture as I'm still using the Kickstarter one. Is the one you are using realeased to the general public?

Re: Breaking News: Unspun Worms Disrupt Spun Cycle

Feb 6, 2015

We interrupt your regularly scheduled thread "Days of our Alts" to bring you the following Spunland news update. End Times News (ETN) has been montoring the situation in Spunland after we broke the news reagarding the Kill Switch Counter. The Unspun Worms which appeared shortly afterwards have been dissipating Spun Clouds. Experts believe that if the rate of Spun Cloud dissipation increases much more, the Spun Cycle will stop and cause an environmental collapse in Spunland.

 

Although UncleSpun was unavailable for comment we spoke with a constructo spunner about the current situation. He spoke with a thick accent with occasional words in High Spunnerese so please excuse any translation errors. ETN is proud to present "Interview with a Constructo Spunner".

 

hmm.png

 

ETN: "There's been a lot of talk regarding the possible destruction of Spunland, what can you tell us about this?"

 

CS: "Destuction? Hmm.., that's not the term I would use. Uhm..., more of a dying off really. The flow of Spun is slowly decreasing over time."

 

ETN: "Based on the information we obtained in our last report, it seems as though this situation could have been avoided. Why wasn't staff keep on until the end of Home?"

 

CS: "Spun Engineers never do something without a reason, or in this case, uhm..., never not do something."

 

ETN: "So this was planned?"

 

CS: "Hmm..., Spunland, as you know and understand it, only exists in your realm because we routed Spun there from the Heart of Spun via the Great Spun Pipeline. The Architect, in his great wisdom, added a failsafe to the system. 'The Spun must be protected' as he is apt to say. As you mentioned, your realm will soon be coming to an end and all who dwell there will have to start anew in one of the Scattered Realms which will soon arise. But we can't have Spun flowing to a realm in which time has stopped. The results would be most unspun, uhm..., possibly a spunastrophe, so we allowed the Kill Switch Counter to activate."

 

ETN: "So this will result in the dying off you spoke of?"

 

CS: "Yes..., we have timed it so that the spun will run out in the last minute of the last hour of the last day. By coincidence, that day will also be a Coronation Day and therfore the day that the last Kings of Spun will be crowned."

 

ETN: "And what of the Unspun Worms? They seem to be disrupting the Spun Cycle."

 

CS: "The Unspun Worms are here due to the reduction in Spun and are dissipating Spun Clouds which will affect the Spun Cycle. The Spun Cycle is powered by dance so more dancers will be needed to counter the worms or perhaps dancers with Spun Cloud Heads will be needed. This outcome was not unknown to us. However, uhm..., as with most unspun things, the full impact can not be easily predicted. Other unspun things may develop as well as time goes on."

 

ETN: "So when the spun runs out, that will be the end of Spunland?"

 

CS: "The end? Hmm..., no, no, not the end, never the end. Some of these concepts do not translate well from High Spunnerese but I'll try to explain. Uhm..., think of this Spunland as a leaf of a tree. The leaf may fade away but the tree goes on. In the same way, this Spunland may fade but the Heart of Spun goes on. One day the Spun Queen will return and the way to Spunland will open again. A great call will go out across the Scattered Realms and all the spunners and spunlings will return to Spunland Mansion. Won't that be a sight to see?"

 

ETN: "Yes, it will."

 

CS: "Ah..., I must go now. Here, take this seed and plant it in your new home. Remember, in every Spun Seed lies the promise of a Spun Flower."

ETN will continue following this story.
