Hello everyone,

As most of you may know, I've been the Vice President of Business Development at Arcane Wonders since March of 2013.  I am posting today to let you know I have resigned that position and am pursuing another opportunity inside the industry.

It is with a heavy heart that I type this note to you all.  I love Mage Wars.  Absolutely LOVE the game.  I came to Arcane Wonders with passion and purpose and I believe we have done great work together.  Yes, it has not always been just Mage Wars work, and the Dice Tower Essential line of games has taken off very well with the success of Sheriff, but at the core, I came to AW to support and grow Mage Wars.

While my new opportunity will be a positive one, and I am departing from AW in a positive fashion, I want everyone to know I still fully believe.  Not just in the game, but in the team as well.  I fully believe Academy will provide existing players new meta while bringing new players into the game.  I fully believe the new expansions I have seen the team work on are going to blow people's minds.  I also fully believe that the DTE line will grow even more, and very soon.

It has been a pleasure meeting so many of you over the last few years.  I have enjoyed getting to interact with everyone in our community, and while I have other options, I look forward to still being part of the community overall. I wish everyone the best and look forward to seeing more from the team soon at AW for all of us to enjoy!

Now... bring me that horizon :)

Scott and I have talked a lot about this lately. I just want to say publicly, what a privilege and honor it has been to work with Scott. He's an exceptional individual, and I wish him the best on his future endeavors. This industry is a brighter place because of him.

Scott,

Best of luck with your new endeavor. The Mage Wars community will miss your marketing guidance.

Perhaps now you can take some time off in the summer and join us at WBC. :)

I will speak on this.

I spend a lot of my free time trying to make the world a better place. Almost every spare minute I have is spent trying to help others. One wacky idea after another gets tried as I drag my friends into my hair brained schemes to "do some good."

Scoot Morris is a good man and he helped me help others. His unwavering faith in me and what I've tried to do have been a source of inspiration. Obviously Mage Wars and Arcane Wonders have done well with their association with Scott the Vice President of Business Development, but my friends and I were privileged to get to meet Scott at Gen Con this year.

I want to thank Scott for all his hard work and the friendship he extended to total strangers. You will be missed man.

This will be probably my first post in which i will not use "smile" emotikon.

Mr. Morris,

you are a great man and i believe that any project you will be part of will bloom and rise to a new levels. I would like to thank you for everything you help me with. You were always there for an european ambasaddor from a small country. Thank you for believing in me.

If you ever travel to Prague in the future, let me know.

I wish you all the best in future and hope you will always enjoy what you will be working on!

I'm not sure what to say that hasn't already been said, except this. Mage Wars is my favorite game, and as far as I know it is the only truly affordable tabletop customizable strategy game in existence, where by affordable I mean that even someone who's relatively poor could play it sustainably even at a competitive level. I'm glad that you were here to make that possible. Thanks.

By the way, are you leaving the Mage Wars community entirely or just your position? I bet there's a lot of people who would love to play a game with you if you have any spare time.

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

Thank you so much everyone, your kind words mean a lot to me and I appreciate it!

This truly is a great set of friends and community.  Sailor, not leaving the community, just my position.  I'll keep playing Mage Wars for sure! :)

Scott-

It's been a pleasure working with you, though I wish certainly I could've worked longer with you at the booths and in the trenches, I am sure it will not be the last time we will work together.

I also see that I will definitely have to make a trip to Austin to throw down with you, but you also have to come up to DFW for more Nerd Night action!  I've got a spare room!  ;)
