I just went to pull up the website for Deniath and it wasn't there. I am wondering if anyone has heard anything as to whether or not they are still in business. They had stopped doing sales for a period, but said that they plan on starting them up again sometime in the future.

I had a $100 credit and am afraid I may never get to use it.

Funny, I was wondering the same thing yesterday. Talk about zeitgeist.

As for the answer, I haven't a clue.

Glad I used my credits up with them...

Sucks that they look like they might be gone for good.

I knew they were in trouble when some people were getting $100 gift certs for $3 and they had to raise their prices to compensate.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

They sent an email back in April...

Flash Sales going to the Cryo Chamber
We've been absolutely amazed at the response to Deniath so far, and we appreciate all the support of our members and vendors. We're putting our flash sales on ice for a little while to improve the site and better serve everyone. We've already secured many deals for the return of our flash sales and are excited for you all to see what's in store. In the coming weeks, we will be starting new programs, new initiatives, and running various promotions so stay tuned to our blog and emails for all the latest information on Deniath.

That's the last email I received. Their last tweet (and presumably last blog post) was June 12.

I learned about Deniath when they had a special on Thunderstone. However it took a few days to get access to the site and by then the sale was over. With a business model like that I guess I'm not surprised they went out of business.

The email is there and the phone number as well.
Hope this helps you guys get those gift certs.

Checking the Washington State Corporations Division the company's corporate filing expired at the end of June. Given that their website is down and they haven't done anything meaningful business-wise (no new sales, no new news about the status of the company) with their blog or twitter I think it may be safe to assume that the company is finished.

Too bad, living in the Seattle-Metro area shipping was super fast.

Wow, that is quite a disappointment. Had a $100 credit and never got to use it. What a waste.

I have a theory that they accidentally gave out many times as many $100 gift certificates as intended and had no choice but to close rather than lose that much money.

I'm just really glad I used my credit about a week before they shut down.. Sorry to those that didn't get the chance.

I was searching through my inbox today and realized I had purchased a $20 gift certificate to Noble Knight Games through Deniath. I can't seem to get the coupon applied at NKG.

Is it safe to assume they won't honor this coupon, and I'm out the cash since Deniath closed shop?
