I told myself I'd see how I feel about VtES after TempleCon, and it's after TempleCon now.
I can't say I give up on the game; I still appreciate it, and I still want to play.
I just can't bring myself to care about building new decks. Even with all the wacky ideas I've come up with over the last 10 years, I'm just.. spent.
And with the thousands of cards sitting in my closet doing nothing, half of me wants to donate them. Half of me wants to sell them. Half of me wants to keep them "just in case".
I dunno... I don't even know how I would shed my excess cards even if I wanted to. I've been ebaying bits here and there for the last couple of years, and will probably continue to do so, but what am I going to do with all of these Bang Nakh and Marcus Vitels?
I've just gotten so much more interested in "self-contained games that are interesting with a VTES mindset".
And especially since I'm locked out from our regular VTES night for the next several months, Motivation is extremely low.
I've gone through phases of VTES disinterest before, but I think this one is the Big One.
