Now It's Time to Say Goodbye...
« on: November 24, 2018, 10:59:05 AM »
... To the things we loved, and the innocence of youth...

Unfortunately, a combination of factors have come together to make it so I just don't have the ability to RP anymore. As some of you know, a few months back I moved into a new apartment which was further away from my job. Turns out, unless I'm prepared to pay a small fortune in bridge tolls, it's a lot further than I thought -- it's not uncommon for me to spend 2-3 hours on the road every day now. On top of that, I've accepted a new position at work that's significantly more demanding, so even on the days I get home and don't turn in right away I often have no energy or drive to write. For the foreseeable future, I'll need to retire from forum RP.

I know that a number of you are waiting on me for plots and storylines, and I don't want to leave you hanging any more than I must. I hereby give permission to the staff, as well as Rush and Ordelis, to use my characters as NPCs whenever and however they see fit. I realize this won't resolve everything, but under the circumstances it's the best I can offer. Again, I'm sorry.

Should anyone want the PSD files for any of the Action Banner designs, shoot me an email ( and I'll send them your way.

Hopefully thing will change at some point and I'll be able to come back, but it doesn't look like it. I've been in forum RP for around two decades now and I'm starting to wonder if this is how I end up retiring...

Take care of yourselves, you awesome, crazy writers. Hopefully we shall meet again. Riven out.

... How the time seemed to fly ...

First off I hope the new position is working out well, even if the drive is unfortunately long.

It's been wonderful to have you around, and if in a while, you feel like dipping your toes back in but have a bit of restraint due to the number of threads (I certainly had this issue when I left at least) know that there's no pressure to continue any of them.

Best of luck ^^

Hey, man, if you get time, poke into the Discord from time to time. I'm usually driving in the mornings and evenings, hanging out in the voice channel. At least shoot the shit with us and all.
