Urgh, I know this is long, but I feel I have to explain myself.
Now I’m really sorry to be doing this, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to end my GM-ship here, and I’ll explain why. Life’s just kicked me hard up the backside, and it’s come as a wake up call that I need to be focusing more on my education.
I know it’s disappointing that I’m dropping this RP, but I can assure you all I’ll still be around the forums, including the RP section. I’m not dropping out of everything (Or at least, I'm really hoping it won't come to that). I just think that actually GMing an RP right now is a bad idea for me, as I just can’t promise to find the time needed and dedicate myself to fully running an RP like this, not when I’m this busy. Creating characters and adding details to the plot during the RP was also a bad mistake on my part I’ll admit, as it really hasn’t helped my progress. And I’m really regretting now, not planning out some of the details to this beforehand.
I mean, I could try and fix this and get it back up and running (and I’m really tempted to, I had such good plans for this), but I can almost guarantee that we will be facing this same problem again in January, when I know I’ll have to focus my attention more fully elsewhere. December, January and February are going to be very busy months for me, and it’s going to be hard enough keeping up with regular RPing, let alone doing any GMing. I started this RP at a time when I had a lot more spare time on my hands, but now I’m finding that my spare time is being increasingly eaten up by other, much more important things.
Who knows, maybe I’ll GM for an RP again some time in the future. And when I do, I’ll be making sure to have it properly, fully organised, so that things don’t get this bad again. But for now, and into the unforeseeable future, I will no longer be doing any GMing for RPs. Real life is much more important, and I hope you can all understand why I need to step down from my role as GM.
I know there was a lot of interest for this RP, and believe me, I’m as disappointed as you are that I won’t be continuing this. I’m still very much interested in this RP. But education comes first, and I do not have the time or the energy to GM anymore.
If there is still a lot of interest for this, then you are welcome to either start another RP based on this yourselves, or alternatively, continue this one amongst yourselves. I will help where I can. I’ve still got a lot of unused information, plot and ideas, so give me a yell if you’re interested.
If any of you are interested in GMing this RP and continuing it, speak now.
Otherwise, this RP ends here, regrettably. :[
Again, really sorry it’s come to this, guys. I hope you can forgive me.
