Re: New game date/time discussion
sorry guys, I am trying to pull myself together, plus I need to transfer/backup all my filoes from my old GMing latop to a hardrive/new computer, then try to get it all working again, as the old laptop keeps erroring out/shutting down. ... which is being hindered by me trying to pull myself together..

plus, due to the affore mentioned Karate classes for my daughter, I am not so sure I am going to make fridays workable..

I know I am not making things easy, and sound pathetic.. and .. well.. Maybe I am...pathetic that is..


Walking excuse....

This is exactly right on all counts.  Plus, we need closure; we need to find the dragon that has kidnapped the prince regent before the Kingdom of Balana and the Duchy of Hystiana destroy each other because they blame the other for the kidnapping.

I too agree with all the responses above. It is a testament to how well you run the game that we are so persistent.  No worries.

Re: New game date/time discussion
okay, sorry for the delay, this post has been long coming.

things should be getting back to normal soon. (you will appreciate the pun or Irony of this statement shortly)

First business... I almost have everything backed up and then I will be trying to get mp tools up an running on one of my other computers, if possible very soon. (at that time will need some one to help test the connection) which also means getting back to a Sunday schedule as well

Okay for the big one.

this so much easier in voice lol especially with these nails. (you will get that in a second)

I have had gender dysphoria my entire life. (this means I am Transgender M2F)

I ave kept it hidden for everyone save my wife and a couple other online friends, pretty much my entire life.
I came out to my wife about 18 t 19 years ago. I suppressed it nearly 15 years ago, only expressing my self through video games and virtual word characters/avatars.

between my health and feeling abandoned/ignored by family and local friends, My depression had gotten very deep this last year. i may, due to a fight between my wife and I over my health, activity level, and the pressure within me to be who I should be, at the end of the fight, I tried to commit suicide.  She stopped me.

we tried to work things out after that, and I thought we were miking progress, and that a compromise had been reached.
at the end of July we had another fight which showed the contrary.it ended again with me falling back deeper into that depression and attempting suicide again.
she called the police and I was put into a behavioral health ward at the local hospital.

the first night I was there, she came and told me to quit all things associated with my dysphoria or don't come home.
well I couldn't choose all one or the other under an ultimatum with no room for compromise, I would just continue to spiraling my depression.

long story short, we are in divorce proceedings, I am living with some close friends/former foster child who is also Trans, and well, I am out to everyone now and living more happily  moving towards what  ever level of transition I choose t be.


I am not offended by any questions, so the floor is open, and or, we can meet on discord to talk when available.

and I am Snow.

Re: New game date/time discussion
I am sorry that you had to go through all of that, for so long, before you could feel happy and comfortable with life.  That is undoubtedly a hellish existence.

My younger son is gay, and several of his friends are LGBT.  All are people.  Some I like, some I don't -- but all because of how they act, what they say, their personality, etc.  You know: all of the typical things that prompt one person to like another.  Gender/orientation/identity does not factor in.

I am comfortable with you regarding the game as the least of (or the last of) your concerns, except to whatever extent that it provides you with enjoyment/solace.  We can wait.  As always, my mantra is: RL>RPG

BUT . . . to the extent that we are talking logistics: My wife and I unexpectedly bought a new house.  We are currently scheduled to close 9/27 and hope to move that day or the next.  But we also hope to move closing up, although that is not within our control.  Bottom line: I have packed all of my gaming and computer stuff (except for my tablet) and do not know how soon after we move we will have internet.

I know this pales in comparison to what you are dealing with, but if we're actually in the planning stages for a restart, I thought I'd throw it out there. :P

I couldn't phrase my own sentiments remotely as well as you just did, Gnelson. Simply, I am in complete agreement with what you have said above (with minor edits after removing your personal comments, Gnelson).

Please feel free to call, text or drop me a line on RPoL or XBox if you need or want to chat; I'll get back to you ASAP if I am stuck - I'm pretty busy this week with family obligations, so I may not be able to reply quickly; apologies in advance if that is the case.

Re: New game date/time discussion
In reply to GM Joe (msg # 738):

Dear Snow,

Sorry if my response to your note came up a bit short.  Upon reflection, I feel I should say more.  As I have mentioned to you privately in the past, I have really enjoyed this game and your skill as a game master.  I appreciate the time and energy you put into this game and you I cannot tell you how much enjoyment I have had playing the game with this group.  I think the interaction among players has been great and I have enjoyed meeting you and the other players through this game.  You deserve a lot of credit for facilitating this great interaction.

I was saddened to hear the challenges you have faced in your personal life.  As was eloquently stated by Gnelson, I too am influenced by personality not gender/orientation/identity.  I have really enjoyed you as a person and as a leader in this game.  I have no questions as I need no answers about your personal life, because it is your personal life.

I am sorry if you felt you owed us more of an explanation other than you were busy.  I do, however, applaud you for coming out.  I cannot understand or imagine how difficult that would be and I am glad to hear that it has been a personally beneficial step.

Again, I agree with Gnelson with respect to the game.  There is no rush to get back to it.  If it is of enjoyment/solace and you are ready, I will be available.  If it is not, then it is a minor issue that shouldn't cross your mind.

I am really glad to hear that you are well and "living happily".  Please know that we really value your leadership, contributions and humor.


p.s. I continue to be available on Sundays if/when we consider a restart

Re: New game date/time discussion
Hey everyone!

I know there are other major priorities right now, but it would be nice to take a little bit of time to catch up on Discord; assuming, of course that we have a common time to catch up.

Any thoughts?  I can be free on our game time: Sundays at 9 PM, Eastern, 7 PM Mountain.

Gnelson:
. . . to the extent that we are talking logistics: My wife and I unexpectedly bought a new house.

I just remembered this as I was typing the message. Congrats to you on the new place!

I don't have discord installed yet.  And, I may be without internet at home for a while, until we get it set up at our new house.  I'll try then.

But I can still check RPoL at work.

Hey gang.

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm wondering how everyone is doing, as we haven't caught up in a while.  With that in mind, Happy upcoming Halloween!

I would be happy to help with this.  I would just have to actually schedule a time on the weekend to do it :-/  Feel free to send me a text if you want to try and work on it.

Re: New game date/time discussion
Jello everyone..
I am sorry for the delays .. My life has been in  much flux and turmoil since being outed, divorced. and dealing with being alone and trying to make my bills on limited fixed income and limited ability to supplement... and trying to get a new power supply for my primary GM computer..

I hope you will bear with me a little while longer and hope to get it all going again.

Thank you for your understanding
