    This may come as no surprise to the people I usually play with, but it's time for me to take another break from UO. In the last 6 months I could count the number of times I've logged in on one hand and still have fingers left over. I've started the daunting task of sorting and packing up my houses, as soon as I finish I will be cancelling my subscriptions and letting the houses fall.

    I'm banking as much as I can because when the bug bites again (I'm sure it will) I don't want to have to start from scratch. But by the end of this week I won't be seen in game for the foreseeable future. But don't worry too much, I'm not going totally away. I'm going to continue working here at Stratics, so you'll still be able to find me should you find yourself longing for the pleasure of my company, you won't have to go very far to find me.

    Just wanted to let everyone know I'm taking a break for a while. So if you see a Black Sun, Gordon Ramsay, Corran or Raven Blackmoore running around, it's not me. Thanks for all the fun times. I hope to see you all in game again someday.

    I've went before and returned. I seem to go in 4 year cycles. I started in 2000, played until '04, took a few years off, came back around '07 or '08. It's now 2012 and my desire to play has diminished again. Should history ring true, I should be back around 2016 or so. Let's just hope UO is still here by then!

    Well there goes my plan of visiting Catskills just to find you. I hope its less then a 4 year break but I am glad that we are keeping you here on stratics. Anyone that uses Fry and then the Robot Devil (best character ever) is great in my book. If you ever need anything on Chesy let me know.

    No Flutter, that was me.
    I banked a few things as well Black Sun just because one never knows when the UO bug may bite again. But for the most part, I have dumped stuff. Still working on my last building in Aegis, the Rest will be the hardest to let go, but I am not playing,so why waste the funds?

    Best of luck to you and all that crap we say to one another at such a time. I will peek in on stratics from time to time just to bother you with long winded ill thought out posts.

    Based on what I've heard, Aedon makes a lot of women sad.

    Take care! Catskills won't be the same without your little dungeon house.

    One is by a dungeon, the other is out in the wilderness. It's one of the few locations in game that has woods on one side, mountain on one, grassy plain on one, and water on the other.

    Beyond that, you'll have to figure it out for yourself. :devil:
