Confirmation of Resignation

There has been some question about whether the RP-Q staff members have resigned. I have. I can no longer be what TorilMUD requires of its staff, so I have resigned my position. Eilistraee, Jergal and Leira have also individually resigned, although their reasons may differ. As for the rumour that we ...
