    Hello,

    As much as it pains me to say this, I think it must be said. In the course of human events, all good things must come to an end. My time here, on the forums, is not for much longer. Honestly, I really echo mrrandomplayer's sentiment here when I say I have not played Civ in ages. I realize I have just spent so much time here posting, when I really could be doing something a little more constructive to my needs. I'm about to go into overdrive on practice for my school play, so I really wouldn't be on much anyways. It's not you guys that are bringing me to this; it never was. In fact, you are the reason I haven't retired already. But, alas, I must go. I would appreciate if anyone would be willing to take over the 2014 S&T Awards (Just ask the mods to switch the posts to your account), and I would also like to resign from any IAARs I'm participating in. Of the top of my head, that includes India (which is incredibly well done, I hope you keep going with it, adhiraj), Russia (which I was in exile in London), Arabia, and Ethiopia. I will peek my head in here every so often, maybe to check a few of my favorite stories (especially The Ironclad Oath, if RT ever revives that), maybe to visit the OT thread here every so often, and maybe to throw my vote in if there are any electives around.

    Before I go, I just want to address some of you guys.
    To:

    CaterpillarKing,
    I hope you stay in these forums for a long time from now, because, in all honesty, you're the king around here now. Take good care of S&T. (P.S. I still want that America Mod)

    TheNoob,
    Just remember that you are amazing, no matter what anyone else says. Be confident in what you do, and don't lose who you are.

    DKVM,
    Even if you may have butted heads with the others on occasion, it doesn't mean that we dislike you. You're a wonderful person and a great character. Stay classy.

    GreekAnalyzer,
    I guess this leaves you as the veteran here. Don't let these youngsters ever forget what it was like in the olden days, and stay true to the golden years.

    Spirictum,
    My Brazilian friend, you certainly have a great strategic mind and a knack for Interactive stories. Don't ever lose that.

    adhiraj.bose,
    Your story has contained some of the best writing I have seen here in years. I really pray that you choose to make it into a novel. I'd certainly buy a copy if you did.

    Royal Tenenbaum,
    America was the greatest story I have had the honor to participate in, and I hope TIO and A Space Odyssey pan out well.

    To anyone I have not addressed, especially VGL, Manuss, jackegull, Sanguivorant, citis, Matthias I, CFCoasters, mrrandomplayer, Moai_Spammer, Grifguz, and trexeric,
    You are all great people, and it was my pleasure to spend these last two years with you.

    And now, I feel the north wind coming. Goodbye everyone, and best of luck to all.

    Sincerely,
    baseballpie, (a.k.a. Matt)

    Don't worry about it VGL. Being filled with such emotions and feelings often makes you forget. I know he will miss you along with the others as you are a cherished part of this community.

    It was good knowing you Baseballpie, your contribution to my India story is much appreciated. I still hope you may return sometime, but for now, take your time to tend to your needs.

    Thanks for the support guys. I'm just here to close up shop one last time, and I'm very sorry I forgot about you VGL. Keep Iran in good shape for me.

    No he's a Westerner! Civil War Union North is the TRUE north. Alaska's just... Alaska.

    :cry::cry::cry: Stay gold baseball! We'll miss you around here. And yes, CK is most definitely king of Civ IV S&T. If you ever have enough time and feel like trying Civ again, remember to tell me or (probably) CK. I went through the same thing as you and Random with losing interest until I played an MP game with friends which reminded me why I like this game so much.

    Nature's first green is gold
    Her hardest hue to hold.
    Her early leaf's a flower;
    But only so an hour.
    Then leaf subsides to leaf.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.

    Your situation is something I've encountered a couple of times for my own interests and the communities associated with it as well, and only recently I've made a similar decision, so I can completely understand you.

    I'm still sad to see you go, you've been a great member of the DoC community and over here on S&T. Nevertheless, I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Maybe I'll spot your name in the list of lurkers from time to time :)
