Sad to see you've opted not to include the moustache. Still, Richard is looking forward to working with old Teddy.

Small change, Winter served as Leader of the House from 1990-1992 instead of Defence Secretary (it would be highly unrealistic for him to be appointed into office given the situation of the Gulf War in November 1990).

As some of you may know, I have been struggling a bit with depression for some time now, and when the round was announced I felt rather optimistic that I was - at last - able again to both fully commit to a role and do so actively (like in those inmensely fun days of mass spamming).

However, I believe I was overtly optimistic, as some increased RL pressure rapidly made it very difficult to muster the necessary enthusiasm and commitment to the game (and I rather dislike not being able to to fulfill my responsibilities).

I feel I actually need to take a break from political games for a long time, so after resolving one or two matters I'll be signing out.

PS: I rather hope the round turns out to be a resounding success, it definetly has the potential)

I know how depression can be really bloody awful sometimes. I know it might not feel like it right now - or for a while even - but you'll kick its ass. I understand if you need a break for a while, I've been there! And we'll be excited for your return when that time comes!
