Sorry guys, I'll be around as much as I can but don't expect miracles.

Been really busy lately and have been forced to put more or less all server related stuff on hold for now - my apologies to all the people who've send mails or PMs and are still waiting for a reply. It should get better by the end of next week.

Apologies for the recent and unannounced inactivity. Now that I have computer access again, here's what has been going on:

Since late Wednesday, February 12th, I've been in the hospital-- courtesy of an ever-worsening state of mania. Though I'm out and of a stable mind, my activity will likely remain restricted to the forum for the next 7-10 days as I take time to settle back in to RL affairs and continue with therapy.

Over the next few days, I'll try to respond to the PMs I see have been collecting.

I'll be heading out of the country tomorrow and staying with someone until May 26th. I'll still be around, but my playtime will change. I'll be around mornings and afternoons PDT (-7gmt) from Monday to Thursday. I might be around in the evening occasionally, or perhaps late night. And I very likely won't be around on weekends.

I apologize to people interested in RPing with Teo, ideally that will still happen during the next 3 weeks.

I need to grow accustomed to my new work schedule, so I will probably be away from PotM for a couple days (minus the forums, which I can still check) while I get situated with things. Those who I have ongoing plots with can expect me to continue with them on Saturday at the latest.

I'm taking a little sabbatical from DM'ing, as work is already pretty stressful and I need to have the opportunity to mellow out. You might see me playerside; if so, please don't send me tells concerning DM stuff. I can still accept PMs, and I'll forward those to the more active DMs around.

A general apology to just about all levels of the server for having been more or less completely absent the last month - never had this busy summer before. Lots of great experience but sadly very little time for POTM (or my thesis :O )

Still trying to catch up on everything but it should be getting better in the coming months *fingers crossed*

From now until Friday is going to be a hellish work week for me. I probably won't be DM'ing until then, simply because I imagine I will be too exhausted after work to do anything other than pray for the heat-death of the universe.

I'm semi-active, I'm helping do art for an upcoming content update and it takes a lot of time due to the sheer amount of stuff needed. Trust me though, it'll be worth it. So if you don't see me IG, this is what I'm doing.

Hey guys.

I've been a busy guy on the client, up until recently, as you probably well know. I ran numerous world-spanning plots over the past several months, and I fear it's taken its toll on me. As such, I'm taking another break, stepping down for now... it's become something of a regular routine for me. I put my all into DM'ing until I can't anymore, and then I step down and relax, enjoying the server for a while as a player.

I've left you all in good hands. This DM team is among one of the best we've had. I'll stay on as a developer and plan to contribute to the server that way. For now, I offer a farewell - it's not a goodbye, as I'm sure I'll return to the DM team eventually when several months have passed, and I feel refreshed, with new ideas for plots, ready to go again.

Post by: Zarathustra217 on August 21, 2015, 07:48:28 AM
Dear all,

As some of you may have noticed, my semi-absence has prolonged throughout the summer. The reason is in part just that - that it is summer and with the little sun we get here in the cold north, it's about savouring every moment of it. But initially, all the time I've had available for the server has also been dedicated more or less exclusively to restore server stability (which now finally seems to have been achieved), and then a lot of time was claimed by preparing our next hak update. And now, I have a very important application I have to write that will claim a lot of my time until the 1st of October.

I hope you can all bear with me for this and understand this prioritizing. I do apologize for the many PMs I've left unattended for all too long - I'm slowly digging myself through them, but it takes time. If you have anything that you feel requires more expedient handling, it might be preferable to direct it to other members of the team.

The same goes for adding new content to the server module and fixing existing issues. Rest assured however that we still have many plans for further additions and improvements in the time to come.

All the best,

SÝren

Hey everyone,

You're probably noticed that I've not been very active with running plots etc. for a while now, though I've tried to remain active on the forums/Discord.

I've enjoyed helping out you guys, but I've not felt confident for a long time about running things. Then, knowing that I've not been running plots, I've felt like I should try and pull off a big story-line, but then I question my ability further and it all kind of turns in a vicious cycle! It's been stressing me out a bit and making DMing feel a lot like work where it used to be more fun.

As such, I'm going to step down from the team for a while and just play, without stressing over plots and moderating, etc.

I do very much want to return after a break, as I still do have some ideas for plots I'd like to run, but I think it'll help me reassess these ideas and have a clearer idea about how I'd go about running them upon my return.

I've been considering this for quite a while now, so please forgive my timing! It has nothing to do with the DM-CC election (in fact I think a break from the CC might be helpful for me as well, as while I like helping with the administration of the server it can be a bit draining), so I just wanted to address it. :)

Will be seeing you all player-side soon!

Here's my quarterly "oh geez, life" post

This time I'm going to switch myself to inactive for a bit. I can't dedicate any time at all to be in game, and I'm just leaving more and more stuff hanging, both IRL and related to PotM. Pretty much all I've been able to do is stay on top of applications, and it's not really fair to consider myself more than a casual DM because of that. I'll try and trim all those loose ends I've got hanging, but unfortunately some are going to be still dangling. Thank you all for your patience and the fun, hopefully I'll be more free to play soon enough.
Title: Re: DM Inactivity Status
Post by: Dread on March 12, 2017, 05:43:11 PM
For some reason, my ISP and the server do not agree with one another, and as a result, my connection to it is abysmal and more or less unplayable. Unless I can fix it before Tuesday when the technician comes and looks it over, I wouldn't look for me.

Edit: My connection seems kind of/sort of workable (at least as of this post), but I still am kind of unreliable until further notice. I'll keep you guys updated.

I'm going to be in a stage of transition soon enough so this is a heads up I won't be as active as before and will likely be inactive during the summer as I'll be in a different country and likely to have poor internet access. In the short term, I should be around, but I won't be starting anything big until I can reliably have time to plan ahead like I did before.

Current events I've been working on will continue in regards to the Unraveling plot but not much else for now.

I'm still active, but with work likely to be rather unpleasant coming up, I'm going to be easing off the throttle a bit for the sake of my sanity, and I might be more visible playerside. That doesn't mean you won't see me doing DM stuff, I'm just trying to avoid the potential for burnout if I can.

Hey guys and gals,

Effective immediately, I am stepping down from the Prisoners of the Mists DM Team. Work is becoming more and more hectic, and I simply would not have the time to commit to all that is involved in being a Dungeon Master. Arawn and Mephisto, both of whom I greatly respect and admire, will be continuing on from where I left off. I ask only that you be patient with them, since they've a fair bit on their plates already.

I will be continuing on as a developer and as a member of the Community Council, and will continue to pursue my key projects as a builder and area designer (the museum my highest priority among them).

Thanks to all who took part in what I did as a DM, and know that I have greatly enjoyed interacting with you all as a player. I shall likely continue to do so.

Yours truly,
-- DM Dread --

Hey guys!

I know I was just added, and you've probably not seen a whole lot of me. The missus and I just got approved for a house, she's transitioning into a new job, and we're going to be spending the next little bit moving. It's been a bumpy rollercoaster, but things will smooth out.

I'm so eager to play and learn, but my time's going to be a little more sparse for the next week or two.

Post by: DM Naberius on November 26, 2017, 03:37:24 PM
Hey folks!

Though I was still in the Apprentice stage of my DMing, I am going to step down from the seat and return to the community playerside.

I originally sought to join the team to help out during a period of time where active DM's were sparse. Now, as I take my leave, it's full of active and engaged members-- and I have without any doubt the utmost confidence in the team to carry the torch forward. These guys are pros (Or learning to be-- I'm lookin' at you, Brimstone!), and I was very grateful to be given the chance to work with them.

The decision to leave came about from intense personal reflection. Around the time of NCE closing, I was spending all of my time online and with various electronic communities. While you guys are splendid and fun, I needed to take a hard look at what kind of commitments I was making, and how much time I was spending with people in my immediate (and very real) life.

Though it was a brief stint, I enjoyed every moment of it. I got to see from an eagle eye's view the incredible roleplay you guys put forward, and it was an incredibly rewarding experience. If anything, I was having too much fun. I do intend to return to our community, but on terms that better suit where I am in life-- and probably only as a player! I apologize sincerely to anyone who I left in the midst of a plot, or with questions unanswered. It wasn't your fault whatsoever, and even though I wanted very much to hop on and commit time to you guys, I needed to reorder my own priorities.

Thank you all so very much for the chance, and I look forward to chummin' with you guys as just another one of the boys.

Regards,
Naberius

All,

I will be a bit sparse IG for the next few days (12/1 - 12/3).  I have family and friends visiting from out of town.  Rest assured, I'll be back in the full swing of things and into the usual routine by Monday, December 4th.  In the meantime, should you have any urgent requests or questions, please contact a member of the DM team (http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=1184.0) or Community Council (http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=19144.0), whichever would be most applicable to your current situation.

Thanks,

I'll be sporadic in my availability for the next few days and likely won't be in-client during that time as I have out-of-town family coming to visit.  I should be back around at my usual schedule early next week.

I had hoped to have the Dementlieu plot resolved by now, but instead the siege will need to continue a bit longer. I'll be out of the country from Sunday the 27th to Sunday the 10th with only sporadic access to the Internet. Hopefully part of that time will be NCE, so it won't prove too disruptive, but I regret the awkward timing all the same.

Not really absent, hopefully, but surely I will not be on much (or at all) on 12 and 13 July. After that, and for more than a month (up to 24, 25 August or so), I'll be at my parents', so trying to follow their own schedules more than mine, thus changing my online schedules as well (I cannot say much now, I will find myself out when it happens!). My ongoing events will stay, and you will be informed of them, hopefully, in time.

I'm getting ready to take a vacation at the end of the week which means that work will be piling up both prior to my departure as I make preparations and while catching up once I return.  Given this, I'll likely be scarce on the DM client for roughly a week.  To those I already have commitments, we will have to delay those plans, but I assure you they will continue once I return. 

While I'm away, please direct all inquiries, applications, or requests to other members of the DM team or Community Council.
