Farewell Merlin!
Merlin will be moving to Japan shortly.

He will be gone and will rarely post on the site while he is abroad.

Here is the "Goodbye" thread he deserves.

Merlin is a pillar of this community and he will be sorely missed.

Godspeed you, my friend, travel well... be safe!

Post on the threads, once in a blue moon. We all wish you the best.

No, not merlin. >_>

Anyways, hope for the best! Flowers
I highly doubt merlin will be able to stay away, after all I sure they have Internet in Japan unless he off to Fukushima. And who going to clean up all the fake Rolex Nike trainer threads... All I gotta say merl is good luck god bless and keep us informed of how your doing , pretty please post some nice pics up of your adventures

Merlin is our ying to 2ds yang Grin
...Not sure how to react to this info after the whole 'blood feud', between 2D and Merlin GrinWink

...With tha said, I really hope that Merlin stays on the forum...

All the best merlin hope to hear of your adventures n see more pix Terry
Thank you 2D, Hitorkori, Priest, Stray, Vas for the kind words. That was nice of you to create this thread 2D. You guys are definitely pillars of the NGFL community too!

I'm not leaving the site but will be very busy so will be a lot less active here. I'll still post sometimes and try to be in chat occasionally.

I'll be doing a three month course at a language school starting on July 2nd. After that finishes I'll start a two year course at the same school IF my student visa application is successful (I'll find out in about two months from now).
I totally just assumed this was 2D pulling a prank! Good luck, man! I can't even imagine living in a foreign country. Sounds both exciting and horrifying! Hope everything goes well for you!
Good luck and have an awesome time! Where are you going in Japan. I'm quite envious of you going to japan...great country with lots of great things to do/ buy/ see. Have fun!

Hope to see regular 'reports' from our friend in NIPPONWink

Good luck chap merlin show them how to make a proper cup of tea, And if you need any British food packages lets us know sure we could get some bake beans on the boat Grin
Thank you guys for wishing me well.

Reelmojo yes it is exciting but I am feeling quite nervous about studying at the language school. It won't be easy and I need to work hard.

Cthulhu I'll be living in Tokyo, staying in Asakusa. Hopefully it won't be that long till you make another trip to Japan yourself.

Priest I will try to post a few updates occasionally. I hope you won't have to deal with too many spam accounts. I'll try to log in from time to time and delete a few.

Haha Vas I'll remember that. By the way I just sent you a PM.

Although I'm excited about returning to Japan soon, I'm not looking forward to the heat and oppressive humidity in the summer. It's not easy to cope with.
Still in shock about this news actually. Glad I've been active enough as of late to find out first hand though!

Seriously dude, I hope you - quite literally - have the time of your life over in Japan. I truly hope it becomes that defining moment and time in your life, where you perhaps stand back and feel that all and everything before it, has been leading up to that moment of realisation, over in Japan.

You're the definition of a super nice, caring, sensitive, accommodating, understanding and above all else, respectful individual and Japan will be lucky to have you. I'm sure that you will fit in perfectly and will thoroughly love your time there.

Not to sure about those Giant Japanese Hornets though... Shock

eccentric cat
Wow, I had quite a scare, I thought the leave was permanent, I can't imagine the site without Merlin...

I hope you have fun over there in Japan, Take care of yourself, and we'll have to play some games in the near future as well!
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.
Thank you very much for your very kind words Ninja and Cat! Smile

Ninja I'm not too worried about hornets, it's the spiders which really scare me. I've had a few scary encounters with them including a large one that was on my bed in a hostel! Shock

Nice to see you active at the forum again Cat. Yes I hope we can play online again in the future.
Very sad to see Merlin half-leave the site but the half of him that stays will still be easily equal to any of our existing members. So not so bad after all! Wink

Hop you have an amazing time Merlin, good luck with the course too. I am very jealous you get to live in Japan!

You will be missed Merlin. I hope to see you on the Kaillera servers every once in a while.
WOW this is big news but not completely unexpected I always had a feeling you would take a more permanent interest in Japan at some point. I wish you the very best merlin it sounds like a fantastic opportunity and is something I would do myself if I was is your position ( no ties ) so go for it.

Try and keep in touch if you can although as a mature student we realise you will be very busy. Beats going back to Bookers which was your plan before this came up.

I and I guess a lot of us are envious of you merlin as you are doing something many of us would love to do but don't have the balls or have family commitments but you are gonna live the dream. I think so many of us from our era of gaming see Japan as our spiritual home.
Have a great time in Japan, merlin.
Thank you very much for the kind words Wonderboy, STE and Shiny!

Wonderboy I will probably get back on kaillera soon. I will try to play at least once a month.

So far things have gone pretty well. Feels good to be back in Tokyo. My room is a lot better than I expected and Asakusa is a nice area to live in. I can easily walk to my school so don't have traveling expenses.

Feeling very nervous at times during my classes though but hopefully I'll start to feel more relaxed soon.
