For this week, Aether's back up. It's a reunion, allowing folks to slip into their old skins and catch up with friends who we've long since lost touch with in the years since Aether closed. The website's back up at the old address, and the game's at the same place it used to be. Characters who were there as of the shutdown are still there, others can recreate their name/body to have a recognizable name for their friends. It's not RP or anything, just consider it a big party where folks are hanging out and catching up.
Hope to see any of the old crew there! :)
