I don't know for certain, but I suspect that the failure of the Dwimmermount KS (the first big OSR KS failure) may have had something to do with it. I also suspect that Alex Macris's involvement with the political affairs of Milo Yiannopolos may have been a distraction, at the very least. But both of those things are several years ago - don't really know now!

Thanks to this thread, I've just started reading some of his old blog, the mule abides. He stopped updating in at the start of 2015, but there's some amazing stuff in there! I'll say that, sometimes, it's nice to be new to the scene. An embarrassment of riches, so to speak.
In NYC, still, I believe and still hobby-working at Autarch. Though I admit I haven't checked in with him since before Covid and his "real" job is in the NYC health system. He stopped posting stuff around the net really after jumping on board the ACKS train around 2012. Badger is right that the drama-drama over the year or two delay of Dwimmermount's release might have taken some wind out of his broader posting sails, but I think being dedicated to ACKS and perhaps some personal matters may have been more of a factor.

Tavis was a popular regular and a great contributor at GaryCon every year and then we learned about 7-8 years ago he and his wife had triplets. I know there are still guys at the Con who remember him and wish him well, but we all knew it was the end.
If you see him, tell him thanks. He added a lot to the scene.
