Would have given a short explanation earlier but I had a Karate lesson.
There is no main reason why i've stepped down, just a lot of small reasons which have snow balled.
1) Time. I gave Bear a window into my personal life, but I won't be publicising it. Suffice to say something else takes precedent over efedding and therefore IWA was always the most likely casualty.
2) In terms of story lines, a lot of changes have been forced onto us due to bans or people turning down other stories for whatever reason, and it became clear that there was no way to satisfy everyone and give them what they want whilst running a show without putting in an unreasonable amount of time and effort.
3) The roster is too large. I feel that a suitable and sustainable efed roster contains no more than 30 people per show, IWA has a lot more. Now that's a personal preference, if someone else can make it work then great, but I can't.
There were a few others that pertain to specific issues, and people, but it wouldn't be polite to go into them.
To sum up, I can't find the motivation to even take part in story discussions because I feel if they're going to be changed through no fault of our own, what's the point? My characters are going to be sticking around, for the record.
