After some much needed time away from both content creation and resolving other matters I was dealing with, I am now pleased and excited to, nearly three years after the first thread was started, to inaugurate the new thread for the ever-expansive timeline I have created on this forum.
Astute followers will know that Our Fair Country had been shut down near the start of 2020. At this junction, I can affirmatively say that updates for that timeline shall never be posted again, and it shall exist on its own from now on. Those who are on the Our Fair Community discord server have known for some time that Our Fair Country was being revived, in a sense, for some time now. That is the purpose of this thread, and this new timeline. These Fair Shores will be the "spiritual successor," so to speak, for the original universe of Our Fair Country. This is not a simple re-hash and retcon of the old timeline. I have been busy working behind the scenes and determining new paths, new history, and new graphics to be posted. Very little from the old timeline will be immediately re-used, and yes, I have many, many articles, news updates, and wikiboxes in the waiting. This timeline shall, and I do hope ought to be, everything I had originally envisioned for Our Fair Country, except removing many of the areas I had problems with, fixing lore and outcomes that I was no longer happy with, and ensuring that I can dive further and further into the bits and pieces of lore and all the countries in this universe.
So, to everyone who had followed along with Our Fair Country, I invite you to stick around and follow along on this new thread as I work to advance this series, and this universe. I do hope, and intend, that the first update of this series will be the article on New England's 2018 General Election.
And, as always, I am always happy to answer your questions!
June 2021 Update: After much work on the discord server, I must offer official recognition to the following three users who have, or are presently, offering a large amount of support behind the scenes for updates, and general lore development. Their impacts will be seen moving forward from this date, and several updates are coming that will consist of their work, or heavily leaning on their work. I have highlighted the regions that each individual has worked on.
Lore Development Team:
@Turquoise Blue -- Great Britain & Culture
@Erinthecute -- Oceania & General Development
@Veridian -- United States
