It is with a heavy heart that I say Dice Troop will be disbanding….
Though I could simply list the reason why, I thought I would turn this into a personal story on how this group formed to begin with…..
About a year and a half ago I made the sacrifice to move back to MA to be with my sick father. During this time I also became quite ill. There wasn’t a whole lot I wanted to do. I would just sit in my room and think how the world would be a better place without me. It was a dark time but not as dark as earlier in the year. Feeling myself slipping I decided it would be best to keep my mind occupied I picked up Warhammer and painting again. That got me thinking…I wonder if there are others like me online.
It turned out there was! I formed a fantastic group of people called Skypehammer. We quickly became a pretty close group of people. It didnt take long for me to notice there were some talented people who agreed that we should form some sort of project group. Then we became Dice Troop.
I thought it would be cool to do an online video news shows on table top. We had our ups, our downs, and now we are coming close to an end. The main reason were disbanding is we all have a lot to do with in our lives. Some of us have kids and families, others work really hard to go to school to become actual game designers. So needless to say we don’t have the time or dedication to be what we once were.
As for me, I’ve had a bit of clarity in my life. I originally started this as a way to mitigate my wandering mind to make sure I didnt have any bad thoughts. As of late it seems I haven’t been having them of late. Things have been going better in my personal life and I’m on the road to recovery. I will still be seeing a doctor but I don’t think it will be for long.
So it is with mutual agreement that we are to disband. I will keep the blog running for a bit longer since I might post a couple of more articles. Our contest winner did get in contact with us so he will still receive our prize.
There is nothing to say we might return one day. Maybe even better than before. But for now…I will say goodbye. And if youd like you can follow us all on our person blogs.
I want to thank everyone who gave me tremendous support in forming this and to those who have been viewing our content this whole time. there are some who even donated money to us which is amazing! I feel like I owe you all a a piece of my life as Dice Troop has helped me so much in a way I cannot explain.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
