PostSubject: Something I have to do   Sat Jan 28, 2012 5:34 am

I am sorry to report that I will have to take myself out of the running for the upcoming election. As well I'm going to have to leave Dag for a while. At least until I can forge a schedule where I can participate fully. I know that the timing is not the best but events are now in motion that I cannot control. I've gotten a job for a while that unfortunately requires me to work on Saturdays. As this day is the big "day off" for all of us it means that I could not be there and be as effective as you all desrve as an elected leader. As such and despite my absense, I'm going to throw my weight, council, abilities, or what have you to Barrikade. In all honesty I was going to ask him to be my Shepard in the event that I won due to the fact that he has a vision and has the grit to put himself out there to have it realized. Viewed from my standpoint, why wouldn't I ask him to serve on the Council as quite possibly a near perfect person for checks and balances to me. Even if we haven't developed an outstanding realationship I'm not fool enough to deny a asset and potentially worthy leader when they are willing to risk their name.

I'm going back to school in March which is the main reason of why. If I must make it a matter of public record I have a chance to set my life in a direction that I will enjoy. I was once told, "A job that you enjoy is called a career and you will excell of your own volition at it for the rest of your life. Otherwise it is just a job." This is my choice, and although the timing sucks, I feel that it's right. I know that's it's like a whole two months away but I have to get financial aid from the goverment. You'll have to take my word on the fact that it'll be rushing them for it.

Some of you might feel a bit let down. Maybe betrayed. You are wrong. Please know that I will be back, the same and better than before. I can at this point I can only hope that you all will support the new Council as I will. Albeit from afar for me. I can't say when I'll be back fully. I will fulfill my current obligations and projects in a timely manner until finished.

It's kinda corny but I love it. The fighting, sitting around a fire at night laughing with my friends with a good drink, being at practice and meeting the newbie standing there with curiosity and timidity in their eyes (I too was one once), standing on the battlefield win or lose with those people who would stand and fight beside me, I swear, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Not for personal gain, notoriety, nothin!!!!

You all still need a Marshall. Vote for one. One day you'll see me approach from the West.

It sucks to be losing you Smithy, but I understand and am thankful for the sacrifice. I know it couldn't have been easy coming to this decision to step aside rather than trying to run as an absentee king. Kudos to you my friend.

Congratulations to Barrikade! May he serve well and long! I hope that there will be no bad blood from anyone in the realm, now is the time to come forward and spear Barad' Dun into a new era of greatness!!

What Would Surt Do
"KEEP SWINGING"

Rule 4: Doubletap: Carrying a gun(SpeedBat) is a great idea but it should never be your primary weapon. When you do end up using it for that last minute 'oh shit' moment remember to double tap. Its an emergency and that's why you're using it and not your cricket bat so why skimp? One bullet(wrap shot) more in the head(kidney) will go a long way to ensuring your survival

Adunakhor of Barad'Dun cheers
