    An announcement so important that it warrants it's own thread

    Dear Bearlings,

    I have decided that the time is right to step down as your benevolent leader and make way for someone who can continue to build on the great work that I have started.

    So as to keep to the democratic traditions that I, and therefore RPS, hold so dear; I have nominated my successor as Saphnabylni (jha4ceb).

    If you have any misgivings about this appointment or in the great democratic process then please do come forward so that you can be summarily tried and executed.

    All praise Horace,

    Hawksbane

    Work still busy then, Hawks?
    sorry to hear this, hope you'll still be about regularly in game.

    Is it because he is an Asuran and he is small? That's discrimination against Norns! Congrats

    Thanks Hawks for your noble service to Horace!

    I'll be back to regular play from now on, lest anyone be concerned that you will have an absent monarch.

    My first act as leader shall be to mandate the rerolling of all characters as Asura...

    Brb, gotta write an application to [KISS].

    In all honesty though, it's always good to see other people willing to step up and push the important buttons when the time comes.

    I really didn't mean anything hidden by it; It's just that I appreciate the fact that there is always someone there to take over if someone doesn't have time/is sick or whatever. I do not play regularly enough (at the moment) to commit to doing something ingame on a regular basis, so I'm grateful for everyone who, essentially, creates the opportunity for others to enjoy the game with the guild.

    I was just trying to joke around with tiny people stepping up. My jokes suck.

    That's why we had to remove you from the leadership position.

    FWIW, the officers agreed at the start of the year that we'll have a rotating leadership for the time being. So Hawks served 3 months, and I'll serve 3 months too.

    In theory, sure, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

    ... You're not installed yet, are you Saph?
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    yes he is, I did the deed late last night with due pomp and ceremony.

    didn't see much point in hanging on for an extra day when I'll be at work anyway.

    If it wasn't secret other people would try to get a say in these matters!
