PostSubject: Leave of Absence   Sat Apr 11, 2009 9:47 am

Well, ladies and gentlemen,

I am right now recovering from a really bad head cold that has knocked me out for the past couple days. As such, I've had a good deal of time to think; specifically about the things I have yet to do in RL. To make a long story short, the end of April is a cutoff date for some things for school I need to have handed in, and I'm going to need to work really hard to deliver.

I very much enjoy this site, and writing with you guys, so much so that I have admittedly neglected the other needful things I have to do. I made a thread a few months back signifying this, and I told myself I'd hold off and back away a little.

That didn't work.

As such, I'm afraid that for probably the remainder of the month, I'm going to have to take a leave of absence from the forum. I really hate to do this, especially just having started the quest in Ardus. However, it is necessary, I think.

In regards to Ardus, we're in a bit of an awkward state. I doubt you guys want to wait three weeks for me to return and pick up where we left off. If you guys can find a way to coordinate things, I don't have a problem with AnonyMouse running his quest; just none of my characters will be present.

As to ND, three weeks of inactivity is certainly enough to merit a character being killed off. If Jack can be NPCed that long, great, otherwise, if he has to go, he has to go, even if its not what I want.

I'm terribly sorry about all this, guys. My time management really went down the drain this year. I'll check in occaisionally for PMs and any responses to this thread, but besides that, I'll have to see you guys in a couple weeks.

Thanks all,

1.) Glad you pulled out of that head cold. That's never fun

2.) Sorry to hear you're going away, but it happens and it's usually for the best. RP'ing is way more fun when you know you've got your business handled and can write with a clear head; no deadlines and unfinished RL **** looming over you. Hang in there.

3.) Not sure what's gonna happen with Ardus. I'm kinda in the same boat as you (three papers due next week, then finals the week after) so this isn't the best time for me to GM anything. I was counting on your quest ending after I got through my deadlines and RL stuff. The only solution I can think of would be for us to plod around in the wilderness (not a good idea) or find some excuse to return to the Lute (which would seem weird unless there were some reason for Dane to return as well).

4.) Good luck

5.) Gooder luck

There's beena point in Ardus' history (might be confusing it with its predecessor whom shall not be named Wink) where all available quest leaders were suddenly pulled into other things so everybody returned to the Tavern and went about their lives. It's not like people's plans don't suddenly change in the real world Smile

What do ya'll say?

agreed, but it would be better if there were a reason for it, rather than we just walked out on Dane.

Yo, Teele, maybe you could write a post where Dane receives a message from a royal knight or something and they take him away to escort him to the capital and send us all back to the Lute. Then, later, (after you're ready to GM again) another messenger could show up to the Lute, saying Dane needs out help. Then we head out and things basically pick up where they left off.

see, I'm good at finding loopholes. Very Happy

Thanks for the support, guys. Smile

Yeah, I think I could probably swing something like that, Mouse. Any way we slice it it'll be a little awkward, but this way it'll be somewhat less awkward. I'll run that up quickly. My apologies if I stomp on anyone's posts in the writing of this. Razz

There we go. An ugly hack, but it'll work for now. Smile

Thanks again, guys. Leave the tavern standing. Wink

No worries Teele, we all understand. RL has to be the priority (however much we may wish otherwise!). We'll be waiting for you three weeks down the line Wink

I hope I'm not jumping the gun but I happen to know that Teele will be back soon! Today or maybe tomorrow...depends how long it takes him to recover from his all-night hacking marathon.

Sorry I have not been as active as I wanted to be over the last week. Between hubby being home and a heat wave that beat me down (at this stage of pregnancy heat and humidity are not my friend), not to mention dr visits, etc., I just haven't been here enough.

However! Hopefully we can get the games more active again. I hope that some of our members who are amongst the missing can come back soon. I miss them!

Maybe I'm a bit of a nerd (or a creep, what's the diff?) but I took note of the fact that he said "I'll be back in about three weeks" and have been counting down the days since. By my count, he should be back in two days. But being early wouldn't hurt. Being late on the other hand...

Just curious, what stage of pregnancy are we talking about? When's this kid coming? (Totally all up in your business right now. Don't mind me, I'm just an internet stranger asking about your unborn child.)

Seriously. These guys are slacking. Learn to prioritize. RP Central > final exams
