Aw man. I'm glad Molly gets to heave off the yoke of work at last - and I hope she enjoys her newfound free time! And I know you've got a lot of exciting things going on of your own, and I hope you enjoy your upcoming LACK of free time.
And I'm glad we still get about five more months of Trade Post to enjoy in the meantime. It'll get to see the big 10-year anniversary festivities, and that's pretty damn fantastic. Hell, maybe we party so hard that, after one last drinking game, we end up destroying the place and much of the surrounding area in a hail of celebratory fireworks, gunfire, and exploding Turps barrels.
But, yeah, bit of a heartpunch. I've forever sucked at the commerce side of the game, so I never was much of a trader, but the original Trade Post was instrumental for me anyway. It was one of the first things my character got involved with. Seeing and participating in the rebuild was deeply satisfying, from the Great Container Haul to the OHGOD REDTREE BOTAN AUGH AUGH AUGH. Your effort and your attention to detail have come through in every aspect. Even though it's absolutely a community build and effort, it's something that will forever be linked with you. It, and you, will be remembered long and fondly.
There may be many trading posts, but there's only one Trade Post, which lived and died and lived again, helmed by Jubal Quintus.
Thanks for everything you've done, through all these years - and I hope we get to see you for a while more in the near future, while we can.
Also, join our Discord server, dammit; you're not getting away from us that easily. :P
Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.
