(Overdue) Farewell

Something I've wanted to say or explain for a long, long time...  You guys, the Wizard101 Community, mean a lot to me, and it has been a lengthy struggle ever since the beginning of the year.  While my unexplained absence may have seemed inconsiderate or rude, my silence and suppression was more than necessary to uphold the peace of the community.  As a Community Leader, the effect of my voice had implied consequences.  

I made many promises to myself and others to bring closure to my Wizarding status earlier, but there have been titanic obstacles along the way.  Until now, I have found peace and happiness once again.  I will be able to pop in and out of the Spiral every now and then, but my retirement is necessary in PVP and as a Community Leader, for the sake of maintaining harmony within Wizard101.  There's only so much that I can explain without explaining, and this video is the best I can give.

  1. Kingsisle and the Wizard101 community has had great ups and downs, I admit. Still, it doesn't hurt to deal with problems that matter more than the game.

    Take care with what you enjoy and with what matters beyond the Spiral. We will all miss you dearly.

    Your wizarding sister,
    Cassandra G.

  2. Wow! Never thought this day would come! So sorry things have not worked out for you, but, i do hope that life will treat you good! Take care my friend and plz, keep us in the lope when you are around! Happy New Year! You will be missed!
    Your Friend in the Spiral,

  3. Any time you want to chat, you know where to find me! Thank you for making it mean more than just another game, Kev. Your energy, contribution, and careful thought will not be forgotten. Peace!


Let that thought out here:
