I have tried to stay largely on top of things, but I'm sure more than a few items have stalled while I've been relegated to my phone alone the past two weeks. Will try to catch up over the next week or so.
HUZZAH! Great news! :)

Going to be in Atlanta for work from the 14th through the 20th. Forum RP available from time to time, but not IG access. Happy gaming everyone!

Gone from the server, it could be three weeks, three months, three years... who knows.

But there are some 'unofficial rules' of the server I could write down...

1) The winner of PvP is always whoever is willing to waste more gold in UMD.

2) The lack of players in the underdark is only result of the underdark players themselves.

3) People always come back.

I'll be out of town and won't have internet service from April 20 to May 26. Stay awesome!

Going to be out of town for a week, in Florida to see my son graduate from College !! I am so nervous I've not flown in an air plane in over 10 years! The additional pain this will cause me will not be good but I promised him I wouldn't miss it for the world, even if I had to crawl there to see him. :D

I will have my old old lap top but I don't know if it's good enough to get in game on, maybe just the forums. :)

Gratz to your son and hope the flight doesn't cause you too much (additional) undue comfort. If you don't already have them, get some compression socks. On flights over ~3 hours make sure you get up a few times and move around as well. Keep the blood flowing so it doesn't pool in your feet and you should be fine!

Safe travels Lisa!

Glad to hear it, west to east is a bit faster than east to west so glad the flights didn't do too much damage!

Starting the 13th I'll be around a wee bit less as I've earned a scholarship and am going back to university! Rania will be around the clinic in CK or in the library though if needed!

Work has been kicking my behind recently, and add on to that an illness at work means I have to take more on. Therefore, I am likely to be on less, but not for want of trying! I'm always happy to be poked for RP though if someone is looking for one of my characters.

Apologies to everyone with whom 'Mae yr Machshikhah' has outstanding RP.

As some of you know, and many of you do not, my participation in this community beyond forum spectator status is just impossible right now. So that is where I am going to leave it.

Although I am getting a permanent change to my work roster next month which will excitedly give me availability to join the late Euro-early US peak time play, it is coupled with an unannounced 2 month stay of my in-laws which I am most certainly not excited about and I guarantee for the majority of their stay they will consume the majority of my free time. Sigh.

Thus I'm nipping the bud early and going on "main hiatus" until things return 'to normal', whatever that looks like now. I may occasionally log in with an alt if/when I have a spare moment but my expectations are low.

Thanks for your understanding everyone and I hope to see you all in peak hours in a few months.

Take care of yourself in the grind, my friend. See you when you return.
Did you just assume my alignment?
