Well, not quite. Allow me to explain.
As a few of you may know, I have been planning a long term trip to Australia (the holy land of Claire) for just over a year now. Part of it is a travelling holiday, but I intend to stay out their longer on a work visa. Because of this first part, I will be travelling around a lot, which makes my staffing duties much harder to carry out in this near future. My time on the server has also dropped recently, in preparation for this move. So, with all of this in mind, I will be effectively dropping my position of staff during this period. I may occasionally pop up on Discord or the forums, but my presence will be minimal, at best.
However, after this period is a different story. I do intend to make a return of sorts once this part is over. How soon and how much I will be able to contribute is uncertain at this point, a lot is still to be decided regarding specifics, so I will probably make a “I’ve returned” post when I do. However, until that time, I must bid you all farewell, and hope that the wildlife, or the weather, or the locals don’t kill me before that.
A couple of immediate questions cleared out of the way
- Build team. I’ve spoken to various players about taking over certain aspects of projects and work should continue as planned on them. I will be feeding info and I’m happy to provide some feedback where I can. But I want to fully encourage players to take the initiative and get stuck in. If you are unsure of what to do, ask and direction will be given.
- RP stuff. For the most part, Jon will be taking over the moderating of this and I encourage players to start their own stories and keep them going. We always wanted it to be player driven, so keep writing.
I want to stress that this isn’t an “I’ll hope things clear up and then I’ll be fine” kind of deal. I do have full intentions of returning, as I fully intend to be involved in the future workings of the server, though in what capacity is to be worked out.
So, until that time, I will bid you all a fond farewell.
