Sorry to all those who were trying to persuade me or sent me emails/phone calls in support or spent time talking over ideas with me.
I'd have loved to do it but at the end of the day have a lot of other things on my plate and sadly don't believe I have the enthusiasm or desire the amount of effort needed to give the chronicle a good send-off and help create something fresh and new. Especially when I'm in two-minds about the new campaign system for live-action.
I'd hate to put in loads of effort in to the new campaign, at the expense of the other projects I'm working on or will be starting on, only to have it killed off by player apathy about the rules set and society structure. Hopefully I'll be proven worng in which case I'll no doubt spend many years having fun as a player. Which would be good.
In any case, I have other LARP games (possibly societies) to try and organise :-p
