(Something of a rant ahead, with personal, recent references. You've been warned.)
I think it's not a secret that I enjoy(ed) RPGs here -- I have an entire quote block here immortalizing quotations in various games I've been in, for crying out loud.
My problem now, though, is that times are changing and I'm not changing with them, for good or for bad.
Anyone else remember the days that when you joined an RPG, you were always given a chance to counter another player's post with your own, assuming it was within the rules of the game? Or when if someone godmodded, practically half the players active at the time would publicly call them out, not just one or two GMs who did so privately so they didn't seem like they were picking on the player in question?
Overall, Transformers: Alignment was initially good but ... I'm not gelling with it anymore. What I've cited above are common instances in said RPG. Even the fact Basilisk and I have basically thrown the entire Decepticon faction into civil war isn't making it easier to tolerate this stuff. Especially since he's thinking about leaving the game.
I'm thinking about that too.
Because really, if my playing style doesn't fit with the majority, I'd rather not keep trying to use a fence as a dam. I'd rather just walk away.
I'm not saying I'm resigning from my post as Staff in Alignment, but I'm not far from doing so, especially with college approaching for me.
Thanks for listening.
