We at TheNinja-RPG have some very exciting news to bring you. All of our (and your) hard work on the Beta has paid off and we now have a concrete date for the release of Core 3. This date is August 3rd. This means we'll be taking down the game sometime around the 1st or 2nd to prep the server, change over the domain, and transfer accounts over.
We'd like to thank all of our staff, both past and present, our Closed Beta and Open Beta testers, and all of our users for everything. We look forward to playing Core 3 alongside you. You can check out the evolution of TNR and Terriator's journey up to this point at:

So it might be a little later than we'd all been hoping for, but Core 3 development is finally moving into its final testing phase: open beta. For the past few weeks, a number of selected users and staff members have been helping the development team to identify and correct all the bugs and glitches in Core 3's architecture. Already countless problems have been taken care of, and now there's only a bit more to go.
During this open beta phase, registration will be open to any and all members of the public on the development domain, which can be found at: "http://www.theninja-development.com". Any one is free to register an account and play the game as they would normally. This open beta phase will last between 1 to 2 weeks and during this time it is important that users immediately report any feature or aspect of the game that isn't behaving the way it should be.
The staff would like to remind everyone that, even though this is a testing phase, all TNR rules and the terms of service still apply in full. After this testing phase is complete, the development domain will be reset and the full transfer of all characters from Core 2 will take place. This will be followed by the formal release of Core 3, which we hope you're all as excited for as we are.
We know the timeline is a bit further along than expected, but hey, whoever said a little suspense was a bad thing?
