@paragonxxx: Best of luck in getting back as soon as possible! Tech problems are highly inconvenient no matter when they pop up, and usually mean notable expenses no matter what, so...Sorry for your trouble.

@blubber@shield-maiden@humansfirst@hawkshade@mister_surreal

Okay, I probably forgot to tag some of you awesome people, but just a heads up:

Now that winter is next month, I will no longer be posting on CV on Fridays and Saturdays. I may answer PM's, but that's it. Sundays through Thursdays I will still be around and role-playing with some of you and those are the days I'll be active.

So, it's not a hiatus per se, but since I'll be gone, for the most part, on every Friday and Saturday then it sort of is. Just thought I'd let you all know.

@darkchild If it's okay with you, I'll get to the post I owe you on Sunday. And by post, I mean the one in the event your hosting. ^_^

Things are getting hectic with family moving in for the holidays. My posting has already slowed, but now it's looking like a full-blown stop may be on the horizon.

This applies to all my accounts, including Humans First, Arceus Aurelius, Iron Phantom, and whoever else I was active with. Sorry guys.

I've been thinking about this message for a while.

Today while I was driving home I begin to draft it in my head. What would I say. Who would I thank. What would I apologize for. How to sum up my journey. Why I'm leaving.

As I drove my mind begin to wander. First it wandered to the last words of Horatio Nelson. At his last and greatest battle he saved England from Napoleon and was wounded for the final time. Three hours later his friends came to him and said that it was over; the battle of Trafalgar was won. Nelson whispered "Thank god I have done my duty" then closed his eyes and died.

I have been on CV a long time. I have fought many battles. I wear the mark of many wounds and I am tired. I would close my eyes and say that I have done my duty and be at peace.

But can I say that I have done my duty? And what is my duty anyway? After all we're just fooling around on an internet forum, right?

Perhaps. But for many years I have been afforded privileges and respect beyond that of the typical RPer. I have enjoyed freedoms here that most have not. Wielded both hard and soft power and both these swords were placed into my hand by the RPG community. With power comes a proportionate duty. The sum total of my power has been greater than any other and likewise is my duty.

As I pondered this my mind again wondered. This time to Constantinople. The year was 1453 and seven thousand men stood upon the walls of the last and greatest city of the Roman Empire. Around them was arrayed an army of eighty thousand Ottomans. Constantine Palaiologos set upon the throne. His advisers pleaded with him to flee the city. To go into hiding in Greece and try to raise an army to re-take the city after it fell. To survive it's fall and try again. He refused.

At the dawn of the Roman Empire's last day he called together his friends, allies and advisers and he apologized to them for any wrongs they felt he had ever dealt them. He went to mass one last time. Then he road to the walls with three companions.

When the battle was lost the four of them held back the Janissaries for several minutes. The Emperor knew that the city was lost and with it, the empire. He had no wish to survive it. Constantine Palaiologos tore off his insignia and charged into the horde and the last Emperor of Rome died there with a sword in hand.

This is my duty. This is what I owe.

Like Constantinople the CVnU is old with a history of great glories behind it yet flagging in energy and we can all sense the buzzards overhead. The currents of time are against us. The lethargy of age is upon us.

Like Constantinople the CVnU was built as the heart of my empire, divided off Prime as the Eastern empire was divided from and survived the Western. (You might think this pretentious or arrogant and perhaps it is but it is my goodbye message so I shall be as insufferable as I like.) Here I was Empress. Here I ruled; head of both church and state-- wielding great influence in both customs and rules.

Now my empire crumbles around me. Not from any enemy that I can come to grips with and defeat but from entropy.

How can I turn back entropy? There is no one to contest against. I cannot argue against the tides of time in WC. I cannot change the rules to turn back the lethargy of entropy. I cannot make what is old once again young. I have never shied from any enemy but I now face defeat with no one to fight against.

I could deny what I know is true and slink off to Greece and pretend that I can someday, somehow, reverse the doom that approaches. I could shrug my shoulders and fade away into the night and let the end come upon those who remain.

But I should not outlive my empire (metaphorically speaking.) The duty of the captain is to go down with the ship. The duty of the Empress is to die at the gate. Both I and my empire groan with fatigue and stumble with the lethargy of age. Time has sapped the fire that once saw me stride atop the battles game like a conquering god as the legions of Rome once strode the word. Time has taken the spark from ideas that once entranced the section. Like an old champion my magic fades and my fights become nothing special.

From this humble position let me apologize to anyone who has ever felt I have wronged you in any way. This apology extends to everyone and is without reservation of any kind. My time nears it's end. Soon it will end and I would not go without letting go of past wrongs.

I'm almost done. I know you are tired of hearing me talk. But I have one last trick. I do not intend to fade away silently into the night. I do not intend to rest without doing my duty. Without fighting to the bitter end. One more time. The last time. And it goes like this:

I will acquire the six Universal Lavalieres.

I will kill anyone who gets in my way.

And then I will use them to erase the CVnU.

The only way to stop me is to kill me. (ICly please ;-P)

My RPG career will end with me standing against the entire RPG world and fighting to the death or I will go down in history as the only RPGer to create and destroy a universe and the greatest of all time. If this is the end it will be such an end as to never be forgotten.

See you soon.

@hawkshade: Just because the CVnU is having a slow spell, doesn't mean you should leave. Slow spells happen all the time, we''ll get past it. You know what I think of you already, no need to repeat that. *Fist Bump* I agree with Human Dynamo. Champions always get back up, they don't quit. Your a Champion. I know your tired, but so was Rocky Balboa. He never gave up. Sure, he was tempted to but he didn't. He kept going, if not for himself then for others. As for any past wrongs, you've already been forgiven. But it was awesome of you to think of that. ~_^

Ultimately, you gotta do what's best for you. I may not understand why, but I can respect it. If it were me, I'd want the same.

But I am puzzled as to why you would possibly ruin so many people's plans and RP's as you leave, including mine. There's no need for that.

Taking a two to three day break guys. I know it's not much, but I just need to take a tiny break from the Vine to get things together. If you message me, I'll get to it when I return.
