What's up with me?

Some of you veteran players know me, and likely know somethign of my track record. 

For a good long time (see: the Golden Age of the Inn), I was always logged in here.  Always present.  I ran some really active games that had super dedicated players, and the games ran literally for years.  I wrote code, made the Inn from nothing.  We had this vibrant core community with lots of plyers in and out.  There were active games in pretty much every category in the forums, all sorts of chitchat.  While this site was never huge, it did really well.

Somehow, somewhere... things got off track.

I got off track.

I don't even remember when the first time was that I flaked, but I did... some game I was running was struggling, I tried to give players time, then this happened or that happened, and suddely... weeks turned into months, and the game was dead. 

I have flaked manytimes since.  On games I was running.  On games I was playing in.  I'd be here, hot and heavy, then... something would happen. 

Part of it was plain old depression.  I see and understand that now.  But that seems way to easy of an answer.  Why did I lose my "present-ness" at the Inn?

A few months back, I decided to make one more run at it.  Now, I'm in a better place mentally.  But I'm still crazy busy.  How would I manage?

I gave try number four - yes, you read that correct, FOUR at a D&D/horror adventure that I've been wanting to run for YEARS. 

It started off really well, so before long... I started a Paranoia game.  And it did well.

And then, I dug up my Trek game that had laid idle for a year.  Finsihed it up.  Got so much response that I started another... and now, we have started a little Star Trek fleet, with one other active game going, a third that might go, and a little talk of maybe even more.

I am here.  I'm keeping my games up to date.  When I hit player issues, we deal and keep going. 

My D&D game is farther along than any other try ever got.  Paranoia is still doing pretty well.  Trek is white hot. 

I have added code, done some updates here at the Inn, have more in mind.

I am honestly, truly "back" for the first time since my eleven year old was born? 

I sure hope so.

And we couldn't be happier!

Life happens, boss! We all understand that and now how it goes.

That said, it is soooooo very nice to have you active again and see the Inn reviving because of it!

It's silly.  I'm just one guy.  But I swear, it's like a tiny little website version of the Arthurian legends... when I'm here and doing well, the Inn does well.  When I'm not, the land - er, the Inn - seems to suffer.
