    Hello to all. I am going to keep this as brief as humanly possible because I know damn well most of you are sick of hearing about all of this horsesh*t that's been going on. The only reason I am publishing this is because lately the entire image of House Playero has been focused around the words of only 1 certain individual, and that is not supposed to be the case in a family of 9 strong that is actively owned by more than just that one certain individual. Before I say anything else allow me to state that I have the utmost respect and admiration for @Mad_Gadfly. He has been my best friend since the 7th grade, he is the person who invited me to massivecraft and the person who made me the seasoned roleplayer that I am today, and I know that whatever I say here about a cube game will not get in between our IRL friendship. Nevertheless, there are very significant issues that need to be addressed right now.

    Mad_Gadfly does not own Casa Playero. The family was founded by the both of us through mutual effort and was collectively owned by the both of us. When Mad decided to leave the family for the purpose of joining Casa Amaya, we insisted that he should stay and make a new Playero. He did not, for personal reasons that are perfectly understandable, and so management of the family fell solely onto me, during which I took personal ownership of the family, created a modern thread for it, paid for the family banner out of my own pocket, and much more. While @Wilvahelm and I progressed the family through our own accord, Mad later decided to reunite himself into the fold by partnering El Gustazo with Casa Playero and marrying Simone Playero, despite me personally asking him to please not do that. As a result, Casa Playero became progressively tied into protectorate propaganda which severely harmed our image despite my best IC efforts to create separation and continue along the path of redemption that I was desperately trying to forge. Many, many issues arose out of this, but for me, personally, the line was crossed when I specifically insisted that we should not apply for nobility given the family's image, and when I had to go inactive for a week, Mad went behind the entire family's back to submit his own noble application on behalf of us, breaking off some of our characters into cadet lines without anybody's consent. As it turns out I was completely correct and there was a ruling stating criminals could not apply for nobility, but Mad did so anyway, even after @Wilvahelm and I had decided to work on a legitimate noble app which sought to address the problem with the family's image through legitimate IC means rather than circumventing the ruling through a quick OOC division of cadet lines. This truly left me heartbroken.

    There are a million things I could say about all of this, but please understand that I am not putting any blame whatsoever on Mad_Gadfly for what has happened. I am merely trying to say that the 'problems' that Casa Playero faces are not the Red Berets, are not the Protectorate, or any of the other shenanigans that have been mentioned previously. Mad has time and again, against the wishes of the family, published public rants which only served to worsen our family image by blaming the rest of the server for our House's inability to progress. This inability, in reality, is the result of an immense lack of OOC communication and toxicity created within the family due to mixed leadership. Although Mad had left to pursue his own endeavors as an Amaya, he continued to try to exert influence over the family and assert himself as co-owner, which caused a huge rift within the family because both my goals and Mad's goals were completely opposite. There is so much more I would wish to say but I am going to keep things brief and simply state the family, including myself, does not at all agree with the complaints that Mad has been constantly publishing and we recognize that all it's done is make us look more whiney and more incompetent. This past week, there have been numerous nasty fights within the family, including between myself and Mad. I want no more of it and am frankly exhausted of all the constant disagreement over leadership, ownership, family goals, etcetera. Some time after our fight, I told Mad I was leaving the family and that he could keep his half, legitimate or illegitimate as it may be, and that I seceded all of my ownership to @Wilvahelm. Shortly after, the rest of the family also announced they'd be leaving. Everything that Mad_gadfly has been saying does not represent our true feelings, and it is clear that there is no space for amelioration at this point. On an OOC basis, I have completely disbanded Casa Playero. @Mad_Gadfly is now the legitimate sole owner of the Playero name and can feel free to ICLY do as he wishes with our once beloved family and establish a new OOC community if he so wishes.

    With all of this being said I want everyone to know that Mad is an amazing person who has put far more passion and effort into this family than any other Playero. His actions are not out of spite or out of the desire to whine but rather out of raw passion and the desire to make Playero a likeable name, and he should not be punished, criticized, or otherwise frowned upon for anything that has happened. With regards for conserving the public image of myself and the rest of us, though, I am going to tag every single person who responded to the previous thread because I very much want everyone to know the full story. It is not fair for 1 person to make constant public announcements regarding the affairs of 9, without the consent of those 9, when those 9 have entirely different perspectives on what went wrong with Casa Playero.

    You asked me not to make a new Playero so you could take the family in a new direction, so I joined House Amaya. Sole ownership of the family was never conferred to you, but primary management was. The Florence-Simone marriage was arranged ICly between Cesare Amaya and Eloi Playero, because you had gone inactive as Xabi was inaccessible. Florence nor myself had any say in it. Protectorate propaganda was the result of Eloi’s IC beliefs and Cesare’s emphasis on Protectorate lore. Florence was not publicly involved in that. The family voted to apply for nobility, and since you were in a hiatus I filed the application as the co-leader of the family. The cadet lines were created because not everyone wanted to play a Playero noble. I made feedback threads on the advice of a ticket response and I brought up concerns that had been expressed to me while you were on hiatus, as others in the family did not feel comfortable doing so themselves. When you were inactive, I was the only one left that could manage the family in your absence and collect the feedback from the community and the family regarding the problems that they were encountering. The feedback resulted in appropriate reforms.

    I didn’t realize you were going to write this, strange as it may be due to our IRL closeness, but thanks for remaining respectful. I only posted this to clarify some misinformation/misunderstandings.

    I remember asking you to make another Playero because personally I really did not like Florence. I think it doesn't matter at this point though.


    I had no idea about this. This is incredibly surprising to learn. This is exactly what I was talking about when I say there was a gross amount of miscommunication and even lack of communication. I just really wish this could have all been avoided. Much love to you always. Thank you for always being there for the family and stepping in whenever I had to take a hiatus to take care of my sickly mother, even if we always failed to communicate our intentions whenever we took the family reigns respectively.
