Well folks, it has been a tremendous amount of fun. This (week of 12/20 when the show will air) I'll be departing from Gravity and sunny Southern California, as I start my new adventure studying abroad. Though I'm excited to head overseas, I will also greatly miss working on RO as we get ready for some exciting new projects that have yet to be announced. There's already info out there about the Wild West town so I can't wait till you all get to play it.
Working here I've had the opportunity to do silly videos, write and propose new quests, push for physical merch and propose a US theme town. I've been part of a poring-pocalypse and got to film a video about Hugel in Solvang, CA. I've gone from a part time GM answering emails and posting on the old Ragnarok BBS to being the Community Manager and video guy for WP. I'm proud of what the team has accomplished and what incredible things (quests, art, music) the community has created through the years. Even when things have been stressful or frustrating, it's still the best job I've had. Thank you.
I'll still be on my CM twitter account and will be posting pics and words from Japan at the Oda Blog, hopefully it'll be interesting to you folks.
If you folks have songs to request or questions for me, please post them in this thread. We'll be doing a longer livestream this week, maybe playing some old videos we've done. Going to do some bot banning on all servers, and having some CMs joining me for the last Tiki Tuesday.
We'll have a big jug of Dole 100% Pinapple Juice for the stream, so please tune in next week at 3pm when we gets started.
CM Astra's awesome new show Boxing the Compass will be airing on Tuesdays after I'm gone. Please make sure to give her a follow here: https://twitter.com/CM_Astra
