Ok--I've been gone for a while. Again. And I apologize.
As such, I've debated long and hard, and decided that I needed to drop my games here on EN World. Not because I don't enjoy playing, but because I respect all of you, and the game, too much to continually leave you in limbo while I'm off doing whatever IRL stuff I happen to have going on at the time.
The lack of d&d gamers in this town was, I thought, particularly astounding. For the life of me I couldn't find anyone. So I went out on a limb and tried something: I started a d&d Facebook group for local gamers, and I offered up my homebrew world to anyone who wanted to participate in a kind of 'living world'. Now I have close to 100 members in the group, and I'm running one-shots once or twice a week, in addition to my regular Wednesday group who I also managed to hook up with. I am constantly getting new characters to review, and writing quick adventures on the fly while fielding an ungodly amount of FB messages. Turns out that the local community wasn't dead--there was just no outlet. Inadvertently, I have now found myself at the head of it. Our FLGS is pointing people in my direction now when someone goes in to ask about d&d. I really am gobsmacked by the suddenness of it all.
I tell you all of this so that you'll know what I've been doing, and why I've been away for so long, and so hopefully you'll understand why I have to leave my games here. I just simply don't have the time to dedicate to them anymore, and I don't want to hold you guys up. I hope that you can find it in your hearts to understand, and forgive me.
And for the standard disclaimer: If you're in more than one game with me, you'll see this message again as I copy it to the others as well.
[MENTION=23298]industrygothica[/MENTION], we'll miss you, that's for sure, but of course we understand! Don't be a stranger! COme around, if only for a nice chat and a few laughs!
Guys, I have a big public test tomorrow and then I'll update all my games. Sorry again, This month became a nightmare, hehehe. Keep your fingers crossed, and please warn the guys at Maran and Laholt for me, will you?
