    I've taken most of his comments from the evening out of my journal and tidied it up a bit (took out the non-Sarakan stuff and corrected a couple of typos he put down to 'freezing cold fingers), so in Sarakan's words :



    Well first up let me get this bit done fast
    I am retiring from the EM Program
    I will get to the why shortly and yes I am very well =)
    And yes I guessed the death of NH would lead to that conclusion
    Do you mind if I waffle on a bit now?
    First up the whys
    I been doing this for three years and that's a long time
    I will admit to feeling a little jaded and running a little short of inspiration
    My children are growing up also and I need to give them more time
    And this job eats up time
    And in real life just before I got this EM job I have a major promotion
    And the company I work for is suffering hard times in this recession
    I have quite a few younger members of staff who kind of rely on me
    to bring in money
    to keep their jobs
    So I need to step up to the plate a bit
    which means longer hours
    its going to be a tough year or two in Europe
    I also felt it was time for me to move on
    It's a bit like working in a soap opera
    and with the deaths of the major protagonists
    over the last six months or so
    it seemed the right time to do it
    the program has been fabulous fun
    and I hope I have contributed to some fun evenings
    when I mean we
    but you know what I mean
    I tried to create a character in Nathan Hawke [NH]
    who was filled with flaws
    misconceptions and misunderstandings
    a bit of an anti-hero as well at times
    someone who made mistakes
    wasn't perfect
    not a carbon copy hero
    And i tried to make story arcs that were interesting
    and had some meaning
    I am proud of what we
    and by this I mean you lot as well
    have achieved over these 3 years
    I look back on all the events
    and there has been a LOT
    with a great sense of achievement
    the main thing being
    that so often YOU have made such a difference
    we have altered story arcs mid way
    due to YOUR suggestions
    and input
    that meant so much to me
    this game still has more freedom than any other
    it may look a little dated but it is amazing
    Ok so i will take a few questions if you have any?
    no you cant have my robe
    there is no going away party this is it

    Very sorry to have missed this, would have liked to say goodbye with everyone else. Sarakan, thanks for all you did, you gave us a lot of fun and pleasure and I hope you didn't get too frustrated with us ;) I wish you all the best back in real life.

    He also said that he might return as a player after a couple of months.

    To bad that the Best EM Europa had stopped, but since the new EM is no stranger to Europa. And an RPer it will not really be as fun as it once was, well there is always the other shards. Good luck to the new EM doubt he will be able to fill the spot as good as Sarakan did in the past.

    That's a rather negative view to take. How about giving the new guy a chance? Not to mention EM Emile Layne is still here and active.
