Fatefull Desiscion

Well it has come to this. I haven't really updated the Morea story for more then 3 months. Which has led me to realize that I have lost my interest in it. While the concept of imaginations still enchants me, I haven't found the drive to continue my own. This is a pity as the story has been left off at a crucial turning point, and could contact elements of a coming to age story. But I don't have the time and itnerest to say it. The primary culprit is Basic Impetus which has rekindlened my interest in the pre-modern period big time. I have decided to start an ambitious project of starting four BI armies this year (Marian Roman, Seleucid, Viking, Swiss). Alos it has knidled my interest for antiquity and the medieval era whetehr hisotircal or fictional. So I haven't lost my interet in Imaginations per se, but as my wargame iterests are moving towards the past, so a re my ficitonal.

Were does this leave me? I would like it and apprecaite it if someone picked up the Morea story. I would happily give them all the material I have written and gathered for it. I am also going to sell my unpainted WSS and GNW lead. While the 17th and 18th centuries are always of historical interest to me, they are not of wargaming interst. If no one steps up, I will not drop the tale, but it will go into full backburner, which would be a pity. Especially since many other excellent imaginations are tied to Morea it isn't fair for them to wait. So I would ask if anyone in the Imagination Community woud like to take up he story of Morea.

Sorry to hear it. However, best of luck in all of your endeavors. Poor Theofilia.

Alas,
I'd been following the tale too, but I'm more than taken up with my Frankszonia and my Pigg Hollow ... which I haven't actually posted to in a while though I've continued to game out scenarios ...

What scale is your lead mountain?

Maybe you could put the Morea story on hold while you do the BI stuff. Maybe 'link' 17thC/18thC Moreae with an historical link to your latest interest - say the Swiss for example.

The Herrschaden story has links going through from it's 18thC incarnation, from ancient Egypt through to WH40K, including Mediaeval fantasy/ancient history etc etc.

I will safely see young King Basil back to Morea from his visit to Vienna. Best regards and you will be missed....

I'm sorry to hear it, but fully understand. As wargamers we all know how it is to start a new enthusiasm only for it to go off the boil some time later. Perhaps one day you'll feel like continuing.

The Grand Duchy of Hetzenberg sent an ambassador to Morea, but he's such a conniving little putz it was more of a useful exile. If he disappears into oblivion along with Morea no one will miss him. ;)

Thanks everybody for your words. I thought about putting it on the side( and the untimely seems to be the future as nobody else can pick it up). But the the problem is that as we say in Greece, person not seen is person forgotten. If I put it on the side the feeling is that I will not pick it up at all in the end.


Frnkfurter the scale is 25mm Dixon and one more company (the new Northern War series)
