I'm irritated at the way Alcritas ended this scenario, anyone else?

"Oh, North Wind, why frighten others?
In Nature's family all are brothers.
Puff and blow and wheeze and hiss;
You can't frighten Shingebiss.
Bring your frost and ice and snow;
I'm still free to come and go.
You can never frighten me,
One who never fears is FREE!"

Eh, I liked the ending, myself. Still, it's a cliffhanger, and it's disappointing that Alcritas won't make the next scenario ever.

What exactly did you not like about it?

Cliff-hanger. I know he's got better things to do, but…meh.

If I remember correctly, Alcritas made this scenario in order to get rid of any 'unsolved mysteries' before he stopped designing, such as Sovereign's and Sage's indentities, Cornell's secret, etc.
I tend to think of the ending as an ending that leaves possibilities for future sequels (no matter how unlikely they are to be made), rather than a true cliffhanger.

There's still the small issue of who wins the war, although given Alcritas's creative influences, the answer is almost certainly "everyone dies".

I seem to recall Themistocles saying something like 'their fires have been put out at last' as well as 'sometimes I wonder if it was worth it' in one of the Forever scenes... I'm not really sure what that means, though.

Though I too expected something more elaborate, I felt that what Al had to say was said throughout the other Secnarios of "The Arc".
Remember things like the brutalized young girl in the Dungeon? His Scenarios had the 'feel' of one who understands what the eternal struggle of war is really all about
As I reached the end of this ending, I was reminded of the Sonny & Cher song, "And the beat goes on...."
Don't we all know that, "The War is never truly over."?
With all he had done throughout the Arc, I doubt that any elaborate ending would have been proper anyhow. This did aptly serve his purposes.
And, yes, I was impressed and thankful for his works.
