Utan's back (finally), and angry at RL

Just got home from the airport. I apologize to all for jumping out of sight so suddenly and for so long a time. Was called upon to help with funeral arrangements for someone Wyrm and I have become disenchanted with (oh, there's more to it than that ...).

I had only expected to be gone a few days and thought I could keep my end "game maintenance" and had asked Wyrmsting to keep mum if any questions were asked. Then RL bashed me on the back of the head and said "Pay attention! Here's what's gonna happen ..."

Right now, all I wanna do is forget I ever had this experience. I may discuss it at a later date but, for now, I am content with being thought of as unreliable and discourteous for not announcing my abrupt departure.

So, to all the DM's in all the games I am in:
1) -- I am extremely sorry and apologize to you all profusely.
2) -- I will contact each one of you to check my status in each game
3) -- I will update/post in all games in which I have been allowed to remain, as soon as I get some rest and can get my mind wrapped around the games again (tomorrow, hopefully).

I'll be on long enough tonite to post this and check e-mails, then it's to bed for me. Any necessary replies will wait until tomorrow.

Again, I do apologize.

Let me be the first to say glad to have you back. I'm sure we have all suffered at the hands of RL at one point or another and couldn't do anything to save our reputations for it. We understand (or at least I think we do- I do!)

Of the games that I am in, your absense was not devastating (not to cast feelings of unimportance). As far as that is concerned, you were among a group or set of players who have managed to disappear for a short time.

Glad to have you back Orang'Utan!

Was wondering where'd you got to, hadn't seen you around for a while.

We have to post to Tek's game, we should hit that up before he eats us or something.

Welcome Back Utan

I just wrote another addition to Spores to possibly give you something more to play off of as you get yourself back into character!

Almerin has been waiting for all the players to post so he can update!

Looking forward to what you concoct to further the enjoyment of our collective adventure!

The same is true...

For Filthy Thief; Sib-kun, Almerin-dono and I are waiting for everyone else to post so updates can be made. It's not just you who's been missing in that game, so I'm sure it's fine ^_^

been waiting, but also been delaying on purpose... I will update on the Spores this Saturday.

Filthy Thief should have an update when the players decide what to do next.

anyway... Good to see you're back in one piece.

Good to see you out and about in the RDI

I too am happy that RL has settled down and that your are back doing some things that you love to do.

BEst wishes that it keeps that way for your sake.

welcome back

Welcome back Utan, I know we don't chat much, but I do notice when people disappear from their habitual visits. Look forward to chatting again in the future. *hugs*

Let's try this (again), redux ...

I'm back (again) and way too tired, worn out, frustrated, and angry to re-live the past few miserable weeks by explaining them to anyone at all. No excuses, no justifications.

May I ask forgiveness from everyone involved in the games I play in? I was not able to show you the courtesy of notification that I have noticed myself expecting from everyone else.

And I offer my heartfelt apologies to those and others with whom I was communicating when I dropped out of sight (twice), For now, I hope that is sufficient, for it is quite honestly the best I can do at this time.

I will attempt (again) to update and post in all my games as soon as possible. Until that is accomplished (my priority for now), I will be in and out of the Inn only sporadically
