Disappointing and sad. Atamara can indeed break you , can't say i wasn't expecting the player of Merlin to crack at a point ....but i was hoping his stubborn and ambitious char would keep him going.

Well played so far, i feel like i should say that.

Yeah, it is sad to see him go. I can imagine the pressure you have faced as player... but then again, i do understand the other side of the coin too... kind of, the stubborness of League(atleast part of it) and stubborness of Merlin, didnt go too well i guess.

I must say, we could use more players like Merlins player, who has courage to change things... I guess i should do that some day too :D

Jaune, i think you already did that, that's why we are still having "The Current War"  :P

Not really involved in things in Atamara these days, but I just wanted to say how much I admire Silverfire for what he has done and tried to achieve. It's a real shame everything got so heated that he feels he has to step away for a while. I was once a ruler of a good sized realm in the bearpit of Atamara and I can vouch how hard it is not only having the will to change things, but having the courage to try and achieve it too.

I used to be ruler of the Ash Sea Islands and I could have allied with Abington and formed an axis against Tara and CE. I had even planned to open a front against Tara (which almost certainly would have lifted the pressure on our ally Falasan at the time). Alas, I knew that it would cause some headaches in my realm and that once it was done there would be no going back. So I dithered and stood aloof from what was happening to RedSpan and Abington on my borders. Soon, without any hope or prospect of aid Abington imploded and then my chance was gone. I had the opportunity to upset the apple cart but I just didn't have the courage to do it in the end. I often wonder how things in Atamara might have turned out if I had done things differently.

Ah, it's a shame Merlin took a break (although I did as well for study-reasons). I really thought things would get interesting in Silnaria, but it seems Atamara is filled with rulers who are opposed to anything 'new', they have created their own private little sandbox-continent with their own rules and the new kids get bullied away.

I feel that I must echo the quote earlier:

If I had know this was going to happen, I would have supported the rebellion... but let's see if this situation can be salvaged.

I'm prophetic.

Thanks everyone. Can't say I'm not surprised things didn't go more like I had hoped, but I was definitely optimistic about Merlin's ability to change things. Seems I didn't accomplish as much as I wanted.

In the end, I had to recognize what my priorities were though, and it all got a bit too intensive for me. When I had to start trying to work out arguments for ruler discussions in my head while on vacation, or was late to work once trying to deal with a rebellion that came out of nowhere, it was readily apparent I had things wrong.

My only note is that with great power truly does come great responsibility. So I'm giving up both.

I advise you not to delete your account. I went through this same thing, though under slightly different circumstances. I just had too much going on; I had two rulers, two Dukes, and a fifth character who was (comparatively) nobody, and I just got burned out. I am very glad I didn't delete my account however.

Pause everyone, then make an advy and log in once a week or so so that your account doesn't get auto-deleted. I bet you'll be glad you did.

Definitely the right way to go.

hey, I discovered BM during my 2nd shift of exams. My first had gone really well, but I almost failed everything during my second. As Silverfire says, even as a knight, I was busy thinking of things to say or write, while I was supposed to be studying. Now I am re-doing these exams, I had to makee a decision, and so I paused all my characters. Luckily I still have several years of studies, so in between the exams, I can play.
