Emails have gone out explaining this. Because I didn't want to message anyone who just signed up to the game and left soon after, I spent some time deleting some very old and unaccomplished accounts. For your interest, this left me with 2,856 people to email!
Old accounts have had their game data deleted but their user record has been kept, with username, email, and password blanked out. Their game name, forum posts, and mails have been left intact in the rare case you'll see them again.
While we're here: MonBre is still in passive development, but of course it's been a while without an update; it has not been forgotten. I really want to give an update this year, which will include changing the way mob abilities are triggered. Right now, it's completely random, which emphasizes luck and makes it hard to appreciate certain mobs in the wild and especially bosses. My limited development time is spent on tinydark's projects (www.tinydark.com) which, unfortunately, do not support the visually impaired right now. I'm also finally moving to South Carolina this Autumn. The idea is to enjoy the new house and code some monbre in my leisure time there.
