Also not playing anymore
« on: February 24, 2017, 03:28:12 PM »
I actually haven't been playing regularly/at all for the last 6 months to a year. Low magick game direction is one thing. Glass ceiling is another thing. Lots of stuff. I still shit around on the GDB though.
Where have you buried the body, MeTekillot?

I haven't played much in the last year myself.  I averaged about 3 hours a day since 2010, and then down to less than 30 minutes a day.  Probably more like 15 if you factor in idle/afk.  I won't go into the reasons why, there's no point.

I'm also saying goodbye to what's become a big part of my life.

For the past few years, this burrito place near my house has been excellent. I've been going at least once a week.  But lately, the burritos have been noticeably smaller. I'm making the decision to stop going. The fire chicken was really spicy without killing the flavor, and is pretty perfect. But all things come to an end.

Just keeping you guys up to date on stuff I don't do.

Same here, I'm on a break from Arm.  Burnout is the reason for me.

I'm also not playing anymore....

For atleast an hour or two because I've had teeth removed and I'm more or less blacking out every now and then with wanting to pass out.
I'll be back on in like three hours.

I am playing (and have been for a few months) after what was probably a 2 year break.

Also playing for the past year after a five year break. It's good to take a break and play the game in moderation, if you can handle it, but don't feel committed to leave forever because you announced it at some point.

I may give it another shot, and give the ol' GDB a break.  Today has gifts aplenty.

I've been back and loving it for months after a 5 year hiatus. I honestly couldn't tell you what made me stop in the first place, but that's in the past now. CRACKAGEDDON!

I don't think I'm allowed to stop playing, not with this much ink in my skin celebrating the game.

I am currently not playing much due to travel, but I'm still on when I can be.  Except for today, today I'm on a lot, due to kicking my own ass over the last 5 days by tons of exercise walking around this rad ass town and never eating a goddamn veggie.  Apparently the body needs more than duck confit, apple tarts, creme brulees and fucktons of wine.  Sonovabitch I hurt.
Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.

this game is a nice little 'outlet' for me, to release pent up urges to pretend to be something I'm not for a little while. RP is my escapism. If I have a good storyline going, it's a similar experience as reading fiction novels and it's a form of socializing, which I don't get a lot of offline. I appreciate the smartphone playability also and recommend android users get the blowtorch app to play it if they're interested in trying it. 

There, maybe I helped hook a few more people to the crackageddonpipe.  8)

Actually I think this was a bad move on my part. Get to invested in characters and then when shit meets fan I can get pretty down over it all. Gonna give it some thought.
