In case you hadn't guessed

I've decided to cancel my content ID's for now. The decision to quit playing stems from a number of factors in my life which I won't go into detail about, lest I bore most of you to death. Those of you in the "inner circle" know what I've been going through for the past 6 months or so, and probably understand why I'm doing this.

Much of it also goes back to the reasons I discussed in my polemic awhile ago. FFXI hit the floor during yet another juggling act, and by the time I came back to it I realized that my motivations for keeping that particular object aloft were growing obsolete.

Of course any of my readers are welcome to stay in touch with me via email:

Ciao, and thanks for reading! Maybe I'll see some of you in a more ... Cimmerian environment? Nudge, nudge, wink wink.

Best wishes to you and yours as you travel through this journey we call life, Froh. If you come back, we'll welcome you then, but if not, you'll always have the memories. I haven't been reading or writing in a while, but that post that you linked to here did ring true.

Thanks for the responses ^_^. I don't think my departure is permanent (which is why I left the character intact, just dropping the content ID), but I just don't want to be paying for a service I haven't used since November of last year. I'll return when my life can spare me some time for a game of this type.

I did that for about 9 months, myself. Came back, avoided 'endgame' and lo and behold, it's very fun again, hah!

May you be well old friend. Hope everything goes alright. And if you come back to Vana'diel, I'll be there to say "Welcome Back" :3
