I wanted to give everyone an update since this is a thing I’ve been trying to put together for a year that keeps and keeps pushing back. I wanted to give a brief shakedown as why and give some ideas on some upcoming milestones.
FIrstly, I’ve tagged everyone here because I know they’re still active on the boards and/or discord and expressed interest in playing or spectating. I’m almost positive that I’m forgetting some people, so if you’re one of th epeople tagged and you can think of someone… please god let me and them know so they can see that.
Second of all, I’ve been reviewing some character sheets recently and I just want to say here on the boards that you guys are some of the most creative and thoughtful people I’ve met in my years. The “mistakes” I’m seeing are so great, because people are worried about being op and really selling their backstories even as jokes.
Seriously, you’re the best.
So, now to the weird stuff.
To those of you that don’t know, the main reason I’ve been putting this off for goddamn near a year now is that I’ve been in kind of a bad spot personally. I don’t want to force that ■■■■■■■■ down your throat because no one likes to hear another person bitch, but I had to move from my other house rather quickly, and my work situation has been tenuous at best since then due to a lot of factors. Those factors are coming to a head within the next three months, and has a chance at least to end up very poorly or pretty damn good for me. The latter is more likely as of this writing. If you don’t want to hear my personal ■■■■■■■■, I understand, so the explanation below is spoiler ed. You can skip to the end to see what that means for forum/discord based dnd that I’d be dming.
tldr: I moved out of my old house with good internet because my roomie had a drug problem and was not actively seeking help. I’ve been living with my parents since then, which was going to be a temporary arrangement, but then the company I work for had it’s contract end-date moved up. For those of you not in the know, that means the company probably wouldn’t have a job for me. Since then I’ve been living with my parents who have ■■■■■■ internet until I knew what was going to happen with my job. I’ve used that time to pay off some credit card ■■■■ and think about my actions when something comes up. Right now the solution looks pretty good, with the “transition” happening in august, which means that my current company would stop supporting my job. The new company that got the contract though is acting as though they’ll be hiring everyone and the location is not far at all from where I’m living now, which means I’ll have job security and good internet again. Finally.
To that end I want to state a tentative start date of late sept to early oct. This, even still, right now, is not set in stone, but it’s looking like things will finally be coming around and worthwhile. This schedule corresponds to me moving, as well as a few activities with friends which may or may not be happening, and should give me plenty of time to review sheets and finalize plotlines before we start. I should know more in about a month or so as to whether or not this is still working, but I just wanted to touch base with everyone I knew that was interested and give them an update as to why this is taking so ■■■■■■■ long, and what kind of timeline we’re looking at. And also to apologize for all the wacky goddamn ■■■■ that has lead up to this truly massive delay. I’m… really really sorry, but it’s the situation I’ve landed in, and I’m hoping to have it finally resolved by that time.
