In a nutshell, both Elvorix and I had gotten a bit burned out on running (for a while I was averaging 1.5 games/week) and our gaming and non-gaming lives were filling up with other stuff. So we had to turn down DM requests (or put obnoxious scheduling restrictions on them), and we haven't had anyone else really aggressively step up to DM.
On top of that, as some of you who know me off the boards know, I'll be out of the country from August-January, and so completely unavailable to DM.
I had a lot of fun with The Waste, and honestly I'm happy to leave it at that - somewhere in an alternate world Jarrol will continue to flex his oiled muscles and the Great Kra will continue to encroach on Tyr.
But, I would also be happy to help anyone else who would be interested in taking over what we have. I know at the very least Elvorix and I would be happy to share our game notes, and like Eastern Expanse before it, The Waste was always supposed to be a crazy stew of different DMs' ideas, not any one particular person's thing. And, of course, time permitting, I'm still open to DMing for The Waste when I get back, if there were folks who wanted a game. The beauty of the casual game set up is that The Waste is there, waiting, whenever anyone wants to explore it again.
So, for now, it looks like Athas will have to turn on its own for a while. But if anyone is interested in DMing, please drop Elvorix or me a line and we'd be more than happy to set you up.
