Hey folks. In case some of you were wondering, I've been busy as of late and couldn't devote a whole lot of time to the game.

That being said, I have an opening on weekends so I'll return to throwing metaplot events in your direction.

Hope you all have a wonderful time!

I'll be out of town this weekend, returning Monday evening. I'll still check in on the forums from time to time, but I won't have access to the server to fulfill requests. So please address requests to the whole Global Admin group, not just me, if you want them done before Monday! :D

I will be taking a break from the server, I think I am having a burnout and you may see me around sporadically but not as much as I used to.

Take good care! Burn out gets to everyone, eventually. If you ever feel like coming around, we'll be here.

Finally got a new computer. Unfortunately it wont let me play BGTSCC. After login (new load times are smooth as), I have 5 seconds or less in the Nexus before the computer loses power and reboots. NWN2 Singleplayer works fine, and it runs more demanding games, but I haven't found a way to fix this issue.

Furthermore, having recovered from my surgery I'll likely be resuming duties in a reduced capacity next week. Apologies to everyone I was entangled in RP with.

Had been hanging out for the upcoming 100% RCR too, bugger it.

Could be a power source issue, I've had similar problems in the past. I'd check to see how much your power source is pushing.

I apologize to anyone I currently had any plots with or RP with but I do not think I will be really able to play on the server anymore. Real life is really kicking my (hiney), I don't even know if I will have a roof over my head in a month. I'll still be on the discord and respond to PMs but coming in-game isn't much of an option for me when I have a lot of pressures I have to address in my life. I already have not played (save for logging in for five minutes to check on who was on) for about a month or two now due to work and school taking up most of my time.

I basically grew up on the server playing it during my first year of high school and it has changed me a lot as a person. I have a lot of fond memories of other players I interacted with and the stories we created together. I'm really sorry to those whose RP with me will be so abruptly cut off.

You do you, mate. The game won't run away somewhere and your life and comfort in it is much more important.

Good luck out there!

This server has been my home on the internet for just over eight years now. When I came here in November 2011, I had practically no experience with roleplaying besides some tabletop dungeons and dragons with some real life friends. I had only basic understanding of lore, as I had read a few novels and I our tabletop games were usually set in Forgotten Realms. I have learned so much from this place, about many things. I have an enormous amount of fantastic memories from my time here.

I won’t start making a thank-you list, although I would like to direct a special thanks to the QC team of the past, that I was a part of. We didn’t always agree, and our debates could go on for a long time. But that was also our strength. Our debates and tinkering made sure we actually could give good advice on the quality of the server’s content, and historically, our advice was often taken into account.

So why am I writing all of this now? Well, I’ve been DM Ghost for a few years, and especially this last year has given me many headaches on the DM team. I won’t go into details here. But today I was given a warning for my conduct. Again, I’ll not go into details here, but the reason was bizarre.

I am stepping down today, both as QC and DM. I am sorry to those of you who I had planned events and ongoing plots with. I’m also leaving the server, as much as it breaks my heart to do so. I’d love to tell you why, but I’ll avoid the details here. But I will summarise it as such: I no longer feel welcome here. I could write a long, long essay about why. And maybe I will, for anyone who comes asking.

I’ll leave it at that. Maybe if I am wrong, and this server manages to revitalise itself, I might be back in the future. If anyone wants to reach me, I can be found on discord:

Take care DG! Thanks for all the RP and chats over the years.

I wish I could say something remotely comforting, or that I'm surprised you're heading out, but... I'm kinda busy choking on all these sour grapes over here. Perhaps I'll join you in never-never land some time soon. We shall miss thee!

Well (#2), DG, if you don't feel welcome, what should I feel?!? :| 8-)

Good luck out there in RL. And thanks for the various IG interactions since then until now.
