As I've told Bron already, I need to drop out of the RP. Grad school classes start on Thursday for me and they're going to be pretty rigorous. Thus, I'm pretty much dropping out of every RP I'm in and not signing up for any new ones.
Bron thinks the RP needs to shut down over this, but I highly disagree with that. I think it would be fine if Shade is made into an NPC and things just continue as normal. You guys are doing fine without me anyway, so I figured now would better time to resign rather than stop right when she goes after the heroes and you guys end up having to wait for me to respond.
