Subj: Leaving

Reality is I've been gone for at least a month or two now, but I never really made it official and this is to those few who've sent messages the past few weeks wanting to know when I'd be back, not realizing. It's hard to believe ten years have passed and in that time I've volunteered on both sides of the Garden gate for most of those years and seen both good and bad. Like a lot of you, I've made friends, wished them the best of luck when some left for bigger and better things in the real world, cried when some left both worlds with a sad void when they died.

But it's time to move on. The game I fell in love with back in June of 2003 isn't the same game now. In the neverending, driving focus in trying to force players into conflict, the game has lost its heart and soul. The game was built on and brought in players based on rich history and legends of gods and hidden knowledge, secrets, the thrill and scare of belonging to something that was forbidden. All of that has been stripped. Its a shame that the more the game changed to force players into conflict, the more it restricted it until now there's no more heart and soul left.

Take care...
