I'm not sure if this is entirely the correct place to put this, but here goes anyway.
I joined the Seibertron RPG about a year ago, at the outset of my transformers fandom, and I stuck with it because it was a great creative outlet, with a very interesting setting and winderful participants. However, I did this at a time when my academic requirements were quite low, and I had a lot of excess creativity, which I could apply easily to the RPG.
Things have changed since then. The main thing is that my college requirements have shot through the roof, and have been high for several months. The second is that, due to a combination of this increased work and dealings with my friends here at home, my creative energies have been redirected to other areas, such as gaming and writing. The third is that, well, the RPG itself has changed. One of the main things that drew me to the RPG was its massive cast and existing backstory, it gave me a lot of creative freedom and a network with which to work. Those things are gone in this latest iteration of the RPG. The Season 1 G1 cast, while archetypical, I just don't find all that interesting, and the IDW-based setting, while intruiging on many levels, doesn't compare well with the scope of the War Within setting we used previously.
So, for these reasons, I beleive that I will bow out of the RPG for the time being. It is possible I will return, but I cannot really say. I apologise for leaving you at this critical setup time, but feel I wouldn't be able to make the effort the RPG needs and deserves. Thank you for all the wonderful experiences, and I wish you all the best.
