Still unsure of an estimated time of arrival, but there's talk of creating a new forum for games and such, and for the clans, merging the Temple with the Clan Arena. It doesn't look like, though, that anyone is outright opposing having a forum open to the public for games. It's basically coming down to which would be easier to create since the end result would be the same.
If and when the Temple opens (yes I know it'll be a while if it even happens, but I want to get a head start on planning), would you like to participate in the first ZU Murder Mystery? The first will be set in Reconstruction-era Georgia.
