I am excited to announce that Island Forge is now Free-to-Play, with non-subscription (one-time payment) Membership and other Upgrade options! This change was prompted by community input and the success of my Kickstarter project.
If your prior 30-day free-trial-period has expired, you should now be able to log back in, and continue playing where you left off! The new free-play mode has no expiration. There are benefits to becoming a Member (explained on the Membership page).
I'm still working on rolling out changes for the new Membership system, but you can upgrade your account right now!
