@kensanata I took four months off. I hit a spell last year where I was simultaneously 1) extremely busy with work 2) burnt out on the effort of refereeing. So I decided to take a break. I didn't plan how long I was going to take off. One day I just said: "Folks, we're going to put this game on hiatus for a while. I'll let you know when we're back." Eventually, after four months, I had a hankering to ref again. So I did. 🙂

@kensanata From my POV it went great. I didn't come back to it till I was ready & eager, and I felt energized about doing it again. I think the players were patient, too -- they would check in from time to time & I would give them what updates I could. We lost a couple folks during the hiatus, but many came back.

@acodispo @kensanata I'm playing in two online games. One is 5E over Roll20 with grid combat. The other is Lavender Hack with Google Doc for notes and theater of the mind. I far more appreciate the Lavender Hack game.
