apologies for my absence this month, my priorities have been elsewhere (trying to start a buisness, and some of the prep work is time consuming)
Most important thing I've learned from D&D?
No matter how tempting it may be, as a DM I can't both present a problem and solve it.
Every time a DMPC or NPC fixes something a payer couldn't i'm diminishing and undermining that player's contribution.

That's cool.

I'm going on vacation for 3 weeks starting tomorrow. I'll have my tablet with me so I'll still post, plus if you need me urgently you can always get hold of me by getting Render or Serence to text me. Just wanted to give you all a heads-up in case I vanish for a few days though. ^^

im honestly considering leaving. i've gotten used to rping with a couple groups on discord and the fact that i can do there in an hour what takes close to a year here is immensely frustrating.

lately im finding i've forgotten the plan i had or have lost interest by the time everyone replies more often than not...

I can only say that I enjoy RPing with you here. The games you create are so well put together, and your characters are some of the most interesting in BoH because you make them so much different from other characters.

I understand it takes a long time for these RPs to go places, but I love JSA and I personally am looking forward to when Rua and Phoebe reunite...

If you really want to leave, that's your choice and your right to do so... But I can say I would greatly miss playing with you. I always look forward to what you create.

Sorry to hear that Buster,
Like others have said, we would honestly love for you to stay, it's a shame if you would leave but we respect your choices.

I suppose I could try joining it (technically again), but that's going to take some reading to have an idea of what the rough style it is.

Probably hasn't changed much since you left. It's a slice of life RP in the Housepets world with a colony of red pandas living in a village in the woods and a pack of wolves living in the woods but not in the village. Currently it's December 1 in game and the characters are either playing in the snow or at the library.

I do want to join and help with the RP's revival, but I don't know if I should considering I appear to be a massive jinx ^^"

I am happy to announce that after nearly a month of recovery after my eye surgery, I can finally see clearly enough to return to my RPs!

Beacon of Hope, Crater City, and Pokemon, look out! Your hiatus is nearly over!

Well, hello. I havn't been around here in years, and I thought I'd say hi when I popped by...

I might return to this, I've been thinking, but I'm not sure weather that's a good idea or not.

I've always thought the ideas you bring forth were interesting, it's just that... you've always seemed to vanish for a time after. I'm never sure if it's because you lost interest or if something has taken your ability to get on away.
