Reboot! An Alchemy Immortalis Makeover

Alchemy here! Immortalis and I wanted to give you a little update on the changes you've been seeing at Alchemy Immortalis these past few months. You may have noticed some big changes if you've visited lately, most especially the reduction of our continent from 5 sims to the original 1.

At the end of last year I became seriously ill, and I have not been able to be inworld really since December. This played a significant role in our decision to simplify, as both Immortalis and I placed priority on our first lives, as it needed to be. I thank you for your patience as I work to get back on top of things again, and apologize if our customer service faltered during this time.

We've sold all of our sims except our original retail sim, part of a decision to return to our roots and reclaim our passion for designing beautiful things. While we enjoyed the experience of hosting a vast parkland and cultivating a rustic little community of cottages that we shared with guests, it's time to focus on the thing we love most: creating.

Many people have written to express anxiety over the disappearance of our Empress and Hierophant sim, as it was a respite for more folks than we could ever have known. It has a wonderful new owner, Higher Enoch, who has chosen to leave it intact for the time being, and open to the public much of the time so that you can continue to visit. While you will find it's name has changed, your landmarks will still work for the time being. We wish Higher well and extend our deep thanks for continuing to make the space available for your visits for a period of time.

The residential rental sims -- Inis Caiseal, Saerlaith and Ceangal -- have each gone to separate new owners, who have reinvented them as part of their own adventures, so these sims are no longer available to explore.

What's Ahead?

Immortalis and I will slowly be returning to work inworld part time, and will start by re-imagining the original Alchemy Immortalis sim. The main shop will be dismantled. The sim will be redesigned as a standalone isle, with a streamlined approach to how we share our retail creations. We will be simplifying the way things are displayed and sold, and having a bit of fun conjuring up a new set of places to explore in the spirit of the parkland sims we once hosted.

We're very grateful for your patience as we reboot! While it was sad for us both to say goodbye to the other 4 sims and the memories you gifted us with during your visits there, we are genuinely looking forward to getting back to what we love most, creating the small, simple things our dreams our made of.

Here's to a more magical life!
Alchemy Cyannis.

UPDATE - April 14th, 2013

Since posting this last month, we have decided it's time to simply wind down the last sim. We're selling it for 1/3 of the retail cost. Click here for more information.

We will be opening up a shop on the mainland this month and continuing to create and share our work in a simpler fashion. Time to put first life first :D

"May your troubles be less
And your blessing be more
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door."
