This might seem abrupt, but it is something I’ve been thinking about and trying to figure out over the last year. That’s how difficult of a decision this has been for me. I can’t imagine the last decade of my life without UOSA and the great friends I've made here, but at this time, I must step down.

Hopefully during my time as Staff, I was able to introduce you to more Britannian lore than you’d ever wanted to know about, brought you to places within the World that you’ve never traveled, and had you fight in amazing battles.

Thank you for the opportunity to be your Gamemaster and to experience a different way to “play” UO over the last 5 years. I’ll still be available for chatter and to offer my Ultima(te) wisdom to those who seek it.

While I knew this was coming for some time, it is still sad to see you go. You have contributed a lot to this community both as a staff member and as a player.

Thank you for all that you have done and for being a voice of reason when I needed to call on one.

You were one of the first players I met, on a small northern island within weeks of the UOSA launch, over 10 years ago.

You've been an amazing asset to this shard, and a friend since you first landed here. Your dedication, integrity and creativity helped shape this shard since the beginning.

Thanks so much for all your great work on Second Age. Words can't very well express how much I appreciate you.

Thank you for all you have done for the community of UOSA. I'm sure you will be missed by many. I know that I will miss you. I have been lucky enough to have called you friend. I greatly appreciated your dedication and commitment to the shard and the group of people that wander, fight and spend time here. Thank you for your help, advice and for the great adventures I was able to share with family and friends here on UOSA! I wish you luck and good fortune in all your future endeavors. Enjoy your life and do what makes you happy!

Boomland,

So sad to see you go. I have such great memories of the events you ran and events you helped me plan. You were truly an asset to the community and are one of the best GMs I have had the luxury of playing under. I wish you well my friend, and you will be dearly missed.

Boomland Jenkins, it has been a great adventure following your lead and destroying evil in battle, saving britannia, and having a blast. I remember you as a very young player, and you will be missed by everyone here. It seems you were one of the only active GMs so I am wondering what the future of SA will be like after you leave. I'm sad to see you go but I am glad to have been playing under such a great GM, and a great friend.

- Jace

Boomland I will miss you :( I am greatly saddened by you leaving. I think that you were a great asset to the shard. You all do a great job here. I am thankful to have such a great shard to play on. I will remain and do all that I have been to help new players get a decent start as I have basically from day 1. I wish you well on whatever adventure comes your way next. You will be truly missed. :(

Thanks Boomland, I hope you quietly come back as a player and whoop ass.

BLJ, thank you.

I'm sorry to see you "retire", but that's just me being greedy.

For the future, please accept my sincere benediction for: health, peace, happiness.

Fare thee well.

SS

P.S.

@Derrick, I might complain that we don't see enough of you … but, again, that's me being greedy. The only reason this post even exists is because you decided to try to make something significant happen: you did; thank you.
