This is something that I've been hesitant to discuss with other folks as I haven't known exactly how to discuss my reasons and haven't felt in the mood to, and I'm not going to here either as in my experience trying to go over really academic principled things on dA comments is next to pointless, at least very often. So I'll just keep it short here.
Insofar as being a story contributor, specie contributor, location contributor, and things like that for the Legacy setting, I have decided to step down. The very short reasoning for this is that, one, while there are facets of the setting I enjoy, the simple reality is that I cannot contribute something canon to the setting anymore without breaching my own principles, and as such I cannot contribute anything that brings me real enjoyment. The second reason being that I find people who work on the setting are not able to effectively take things I contribute (like species) and use them in ways they are intended, but this second one is very subjective and not as fundamental as the first.
This doesn't mean I've lost all interest in the setting, nor does it mean I'm opposed to discussing ideas, helping people refine their own ideas with regard to it, helping do editing and such related to it. There are things I enjoy about it after all. However, as far as seeing any additional stories, species, or such from me, that time has passed.
Instead I feel like story ideas and themes that I have might be best directed toward settings that are more my own, or ones where they would be better suited. This I hope will help inspire me further to start up with more DeviantArt worthy writing pieces and maybe be more active here. Hard to say at the moment.
This is more of an announcement and weight off my chest than a place for any elaboration on things here. As such, I'm not going to get into details in comments here. That's all for now, and have a nice day.
