Hey Everyone!
I'm incredibly sorry for the radio silence on our end and how long it has taken to organise ourselves to even be able to produce this journal. A few months ago the previous only active admin Prismaticlysm no longer decided they were able to keep up, understandably, with the running of this group. No shame in that! Life happens and they have been wonderful enough to do as much in their power to keep the group running as they can.

In response, myself, Jackralolo and deadwoodsphinx were given the honor and permission of trying to moderate and restore this group. Unfortunately due to the foundations of the group and staff of whom have moved on, we are unable to add anymore staff. I do not have the admin power to do so. It is because of this that we have decided to create a new group to move to as there is no longer any sustainable way for this group to continue running.
We, as members of The Endless Forest Community, will be running this new group and it is now accessible for everyone to join. In order for our DA TEFc to also be a success, we are going to need everyone's help in resubmitting old & new TEF related work to the new group. All artwork from now on should be submitted there, as well as human art as with permission we are now absorbing the TEF-Humans into the new group as well.

In the future we will also be taking applications for those who wish to help moderate the group if anyone is interested.

If everyone could spread and advertise this new group I would be deeply appreciative! The Deviantart group is an amazing way of advertising the game itself and brings the community together through the beauty of our community's artistic talent.

Thank you & see you in the forest!

We'd also appreciate it if you mentioned Tale of Tales (ToT) or The Endless Forest (TEF) somewhere in the art description. Sometimes we have trouble discerning whether artwork is related to the games, so this will help us accept your artwork quickly without having to ask you to clarify first.

Have fun!

Oh, I really wanted to post my picture with Koanluq, but it feels like I can't contribute for the gallery. Is it because you still need a mod or something like that? If I have to wait then I understand the problem, it takes quite a lot of work to administrate a group.

Ive recently tried to log into the game just to see if its still up and running and im not sure if its just my computer or if the network is permanently down? Whenever I click on the tab for network to log in it flickers from connected to error and it doesnt give me an option to log in. I also tried to log into both of my accounts to get into the community and they both are marked as an inactive username which is sad because one of mine is very old that I have played off and on for years and the other one I made barely a year ago. When I try to make a new account it says theres something wrong with the network or it just doesnt go through at all when I click register. I can understand to see the game go as it is over ten years old but this game has extreme nostalgia value for me and it would suck if it shut down :(

Can't download the game from their site. It always says the .zip file wasn't found... is the game dead? Haven't played it for well at least 3 years or so :(

So I'm kinda lost now. Havent logged into TEF for years. I see their forum website is down, sad. 
Did they even reach their goal to do the second decade?

Hi I have been trying to find the source to this art for almost 3 days but I only get from google to pinterest and back to google...The only help I got was that it probably was from this game and I was wondering if one of you know who drew this or if it's from the creators of the game…
