This will be a little sudden I'm afraid, but it's time for me to move on from the EM program; I tendered my resignation today. It wasn't an easy decision; It's been an honour to serve the dedicated community of Europa; We've had some great times together, no sad memories even of the more naughty amongst you all, and we've told some interesting stories together! Many of which your responses too and roleplay with helped shape far beyond my initial ideas... So I hope you'll look back as fondly as I do at the months we had, and if every now and then you can give Bladdersticks' chicken a quick squeeze, and smile in memory of them too, they were all worth it. Where the program goes from here is up to Mesanna; however I hope you'll stay the creative and engaged community you are until a replacement arrives. I realise it is leaving you in the lurch, and it's a lurch to do so, but you'll pull through; I was just some schmuck in a robe, but the heart of the community is, and always was here, in the players. Long live Europa!
