Sorry it's been almost a week guys. I'm gonna be honest, I haven't even really been busy, I'm just kinda... realizing I may have bit off more than I can chew with this game? Like, I like PBP as a format as a player but every game I join ends up fizzling within a month. (Hey, this game lasted more than a month at any rate) So I said 'If I'm GM the GM can't disappear on me', and it turns out that's not true because my motivation towards running this game kinda did. It's just, way more involved than I anticipated I guess? Like I thought GMing a PBP would be way less work than GMing a IRL game? Which is kinda silly I know... But as of late seeing new posts on the thread has been filling me with exhaustion rather than anticipation.
And I've kinda been feeling this way for a while, TBH. I've been guilt tripping myself into continuing to run the game because I didn't want to pull the game out from under you guys, especially considering most of you were also in the Shadowrun game that died just before this.
School starts up again in 2 weeks, and I think that would put the final nail in the coffin for my motivation to continue this game. And then I was thinking, why keep stringing it along for 2 more weeks, when you guys could presumably use that time to find another game if you're not thinking that you have a game.
So, I think I'm calling it. I feel kind of bad doing so, but I also think you guys would probably enjoy a game more if the person running it was also enjoying themselves, and I'm just kinda not. I do thank all of you guys for playing, you all had really awesome character ideas and I'm sad they didn't get a chance to shine. Not to give the cliche 'It's not you it's me', but really, this was entirely on my end for not realizing how involved this would be. I wish you all luck in finding new games.
