With this mail, I want to clear up some points of events that have happened in the past few months. First off, please read what I am writing and understand the view that has let me to some conclusions of my choice. Yes, the title says what its all about, I am really resigning from my commands in Aurora, Wolf and Crystal Fruits and with that ending an large chapter in my life in regards of being a Game Manager in the Star Trek world. Yes, I am also starting my retirement in Star Trek GM'ing.
What, why and why now?
In 2007 I took the step up in regards to writing within the world of Star Trek. I have seen everything from the bad, good, sad, glorious moments in my career as GM. But in the end towards this point, I started to notice that my motivation, my will, and contribution has lessened due events that have impacted my life severely. From endless and pointless discussions to personal attacks addressed to me. No, they are not coming from the groups that I led, but they were there in an organization that I have contributed if not dedicated my life to.
In some regards, I have had a rollercoaster year and like everyone else, real life comes first. This was not always taken in lightly and mainly because people could not understand the full extent of why I am in ELOA or LOA. I am not going into depths of what these cases are, but a good sum up is that I had Burn-out, serious problems with my health in both body and mind, abuse that hit my family and a car accident that I am still experiencing pain from.
All the things that have happened in both my writing world and my real life have made me come to the conclusion to face my problems. So why now? Yes, people made have noticed that I have been slacking or dragging the last few months and honestly it's my stubbornness to accept it. I tried three times to get things going, to push the story, to get that creativity back. But sadly it didn't work. That is why I am stepping down and going to enjoy my retirement.
Will, I ever GM something again? Most likely not in Star Trek, other genres are open on the table but for now, it would be a no. What impact does it have as a player perspective for me? Well, I have made known to those that I am a member of and they are also part of my command team, that I am still considering this. Keep in mind it took me 2 to 3 months to come to this hard choice. What does it mean for the Wolf, Aurora or Crystal Fruits? I have discussed the options with the Command Team and Wolf and Aurora have no step-up in regards of the next Commanding Officer, the team has either not the motivation to be CO or the time for it. Crystal Fruits will be GM by me until the season finale as its almost done in its first season story. But after that is done, it is done...and Crystal Fruits will close as well.
The years in Star Trek command from the perspective of a GM and Staff has been a learning curve on every corner. Embrach ideas, go nuts on it and see where it brings you, that is my advice to any new or veteran player that wants to try the GM chair. It has been a pleasure to be your GM, to be your Staff and hopefully it is visa Versa. I, thank my players and friends who have given me pleasure in writing as your GM.
If you have questions, please DM me.
