Hello again, and farewell

Some of you may have noticed that I dropped off the face of the forums for a bit there. Nick certainly did, and reached out; thanks, Nick! I'm OK. I haven't gotten COVID-19 (or if I somehow did despite precautions, I was asymptomatic), and indeed nothing new is wrong with me. I mean, aside from being stressed by living in a dysfunctional country during a pandemic.

The truth is that I've been gradually losing touch with Angband for a few years now. I haven't been playing, which makes it harder to connect with the conversations here. That's no slight on the game, just a reflection of my changing priorities. Indeed, most of my energy especially lately has been going into working on my own game; I haven't been playing much of anything.

All that is to say, at least for the time being, you should not expect to see me around much. I won't say goodbye forever; who knows what the future will bring? But if you need to contact me, I have a predictable email address, or you can find me on Twitter or Twitch.

Thank you to everyone who makes up this community! You should be proud of what you've made here. I have faith that the game is in good hands and is not going to fade into irrelevance.
