It is with sadness in my heart, that I announce my retirement as both an Admin, and as a player, of The Menagerie.
I have been playing this game in its various incarnations since TTD 3 years ago, and have been lucky enough to get to know many of you and to rp with you over these years. I gained enough respect and trust to become an admin, and I have felt blessed to assist Grayell in running these games.
Now, as for the reasons for my leaving, I will just leave it at irreconcilable differences of opinion between me and my fellow admins. I wish them and the site all the best, but several recent decisions have left me with a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth. I don't expect many of you to understand, as most of it has been behind the scenes, but I just feel that I can no longer stay.
Again, I wish you all the best, but I will no longer be on this site. That said, I have come to think of a lot, if not ALL, of you as my friends and I will miss talking with you. So if you wish to talk with me, I have Skype, and am pretty much on it all the time. My name is 'raidatheblade' and If you add me on there, I WILL accept, and will enjoy talking to you.
I may occasionally stop by the chatbox to say hey to all of you, but I do suggest the skype road if you want to talk e.e
So, unless we someday meet again, I love you guys, it really has been great. I mean that with all my heart.
Good ol' Ansel told me about his retirement and figured it would be a good time as any to do the same.
My muse has been rather numb lately and I feel it best to put the RPing to rest before school starts up again and I disappear altogether under the stress.
While I'm sure my itch to write will stir again someday, I don't know when that will be. I've been a member of this site since The Third Dawn, and I'm glad to have shared this long road with many of the Menagerie's veteran players. I feel I've grown as a better writer since coming on here, and I've met many good people who I can call friends.
Like Ansel, I may check back in every now and then, but as for the pen, it will lay to rest for quite sometime.
I only had the pleasure of rping with Marg in the past, and although it wasn't as long as some of the other people I know here, I must say I will miss him. I hope you guys the past and maybe one day you guys can come back and just have fun with us again. Take care until then.
