So I've not been around recently...
In short I've decided to bring an end to my playing SD. I've had some fun and enjoyed interacting with most of you lovely people. However after feeling a little burnt out playing i decided to take a break,
That break lasted longer than i intended and i realized that actually i had not missed SD as much as i assumed i would.
This is no slight on anyone or the game or community. This is not a complain post or a "he said" / "she did" sort of whinge. Its just a good bye.
My reasons are simple and thus : After a 18 months + of playing i realized ( and was informed) that i hadn't really accomplished anything in game. I thought i was playing ok, tried to remain in character and had some ok ideas, both large and small but i just never seemed to make any progress with any of them and ended up feeling like i was put more in than i was getting out of it.
I took a break as i was feeling more and more frustrated , hearing about all the fun and RP that others seemed to be able to get into but no matter how hard i tried or jumped into whatever scraps of RP that i could find i just wasn't getting anywhere and was just going through the motions.
This i maintain must be due to my own play style and assumptions / limitations that i placed on myself about how i should play in character, as others seems to be able to achieve a lot more in less time.
Rather than be disruptive or turn negative id like to leave now and wish everyone I interacted with all the best. .
Therefore id like to wish a Good luck to you all, (especially those of you i interacted the most with in a more challenging timezone) Thanks for the good times.
All the best.
