    Dear community,

    Over the past 5-6 months I've worked with great pleasure on Vortal Storm, mostly figuring as a public figure and a general sense of direction, amongst many other things I feel it is finally time to choose for my own well-being.

    I will be taking distance from the Lambda Wars - and Vortal Storm - team for the coming 3 weeks to 3 months to work on my own mental and physical health as that has been taking heavy hits the last few months, and I feel - yet again- I'd be doing a disservice to the community and team by not being at my best to operate.

    Enclosed in a spoiler is a very serious result in my hiatus. Open it at own risk.
    Like I said, over the past few months I've worked with great joy with Vortal Storm on Lambda Wars, with all of the reasons listed a bit up from this post, but I feel that certain aspects of the project look bleak, of which I won't go into further detail. A recent polling within the internal Vortal Storm team confirmed my suspicions, which has yet again piled on the recent hits I've taken. Feeling inept at my performance in some area's, I feel extremely dissatisfied with myself, and as a direct result, my position as Project and Community Manager has come into contention. While that may seem serious, the contention of my positions is only from my own persona, as I keep getting positive feedback from Darkness and others within the Vortal Storm team. But alas, it has come to the point where I have to seriously consider resigning from Vortal Storm, to allow way for someone potentially better. Or have it completely taken over by Darkness, who has been with this project substantially longer than I have.

    Leaves me to say that I enjoyed the warm contact I've had with the community members and the many laughs we got to share. Being turned into a meme on a game was not something I had ever thought to happen, but alas, it's only given me more positive vibes, because I don't think this was a negative meme.

    I thank you all for your overwhelming support of my tasks, and who knows, see you soon.

    For now, I say farewell to the team while I do some serious thinking. I'll be removing myself from the Project Manager tag on Discord to distance myself further.

    P.S: The forum and any entities set up on my personal dedicated box will continue running until I decide to make my resignation official, after which all assets will be turned over to Darkness. In the case that happens, I'll continue to work for 4 more weeks to make sure the transition is smooth, and to help with any setup that's needed of the assets.

    All the best,
    Songbird.
