I finally completed the section about gaming, my career in the hobby and why it’s likely over. A difficult piece to write! I think my memory will prove largely accurate, but presenting a balanced argument with the intention of fostering a positive feeling in the future reader was tricky. I’m leaving, or at least going on extended leave, for a variety of reasons, some of which I’ve posted here but not added to Hammered, and vice versa.
I feel good about finishing it, though, regardless of what flaws it may have. It doesn’t have the feel of finality to it that the section about Lasairian does, but it gives me the sense that now it’s truly time to move on.
And I have.
