Hiatus Scheduled and Restructuring... Looks like Team Noah Shoddy (sorry...they finally got the hint I think) is gonna start almost from scratch and do it right...here's the E-Mail I recieved:
As you will notice, we at Team Noah Boddy have just made several
changes to this group and to the noahboddy.com and theladyselene.com
Here is exactly what has happened:
Yesterday, members of Team Noah Boddy had a meeting with our original
sponsors as well as a new investor. The meeting has gone very well,
and we now expect to be able to create a great deal more
interactivity and a more productive environment for you, the players.
However, such changes cannot be made overnight. There will be
programming and server changes as well as newly designed and more
user-interactive sites when we are finished.
As such, we at Team Noah Boddy have no choice but to put this game on
hiatus until we are finished. As many have noticed, this group has
had several bumps in its attempt to create an enjoyable gaming
experience and our new resources will allow us to solve many of these
We apologize for the inconvenience this is going to cause, but after
careful deliberation and discussion, it was decided that the best
course of action was to freeze both plot and puzzles rather than
attempt to continue moving forward while such major re-designs were
For those of you who have enjoyed the game, we sincerely hope you
will return and continue playing in the new year. The sites are
planned to go live again in January.
For those of you who are upset with this decision, we understand, but
as we said in the beginning, this game has been run by several people
during their evenings, weekends, and free time. Our new resources
will allow a greater time to be devoted to the game and we believe
this is the best decision we as a team can make for all involved.
Thank you all for your involvement. You are the reason the meeting
yesterday went so well.
Team Noah Boddy
Let's keep our fingers crossed....I'd love to see people (including myself) get involved again and give them a second chance...
Sometimes the hardest thing to see is what is right in front of you....

You are kidding....right? I think there is maybe 1 chance in 1 million that "they" ( ms. thea) will start again, from scratch or anything else. It is time for those of us who think that this is even a possiblity to wake up and smell the s***
This game was based on lies and deceptions from Day 1, thea just got caught and bailed out; bet she is in hiding now. Remember---we were told from the beginning that we were "guinea pigs" Guess what?? OINK OINK OINK little piggies---you have been had--lied to and manipulated, decived and shat upon. Time to move on to a REAL arg which is done professionally and is on the 'up and up', and which is held together with more than spit and Wrigley's spearmint gum.
of course, and no disrespect is meant towards you , DSOM.
I am trying my best not to say "I told you so" (but OOPS! I just did.) I tried to tell people at lest a week ago--unfortunately, only a few 'got it'.

The fact that they mention a new investor for the project is a step in that very direction.

You are kidding....right?
Considering how much work goes into one of these things, I really appreciate that they're even giving it a go.
In the community there are, or at least should be, several different styles, stories and presentations of an ARG. Although NB's style was hard for me to follow and I therefore never really became completely involved, I would be happy to give them a 2nd chance.
Having never heard a guinea pig "OINK," this little guinea pig squeeks and shuffles back to her wood chips where she patiently awaits the next installment of NB - for better or worse.

I'll give them a second chance...I want to know the outcome of the storyline. I also agree that they did a lot of work on this game, and I appreciate their effort. That being said, I disagree with this hiatus...at the most, it should have been only for a week or so. I also disagree with suspending the yahoo board posts. Oh well, hopefully we can continue this in january...and those who WANT to can play.
