It is a very very sad day for the Roleplaying community in Atlantean and Rimor today. The head honcho and driving force of the Events Team and what many of us saw as the best ET Director ever has stepped down from his position to persue a musical career.
He made a heartfelt post in the BoD forums which you can read here
For 4 years he has served the roleplaying community and done his best to immerse us into active and interesting storylines. As Director of the Events Team he showed us respect and listened to our ideas and suggestions, and he was a person who did not beat around the bushes...he was direct, and he would tell you what was on his mind to your face. Something very unique in ARK.
In my opinion his efforts and leadership affected the storyline a great deal, hell I think he was the best Events Team Director they ever had. The AOU Team wishes Nevarstiyeh (a.k.a. Frank) the best in his new musical career.
He'll still be playing AO, of course he can't give us the name of his character but then, like he said "Thank you for all your hard work and don't ever doubt your importance in the grand scheme of things. You have no idea...". Same to you bud, same to you.
