I know this is something not normally here but It was here with Rob, randolph brought me into ICAR universe.

:( I have to announce that my dear friend randolphhttp://www.1km1kt.net/forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=15016, who has been like a brother to me, was 1 of my Groomsman at my wedding. On Tuesday May 23th 2017 he passed on from this world.

May he now be in a place where his dice will always roll as he needs them.

Oh my! That is touching. My condolences. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Thank you for letting us know. I think it's important that we're a community of both the happy times and the not so happy times.

The Empty Chair
Eulogy for a Gamer


There is an empty chair,
at the table this day.
A hallowed place where,
a friend once played.
The roll of his dice,
my ears long to hear.
Or perhaps it would suffice,
if he should suddenly appear.
With character sheet in hand,
and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
All his friends would stand,
as he sat in the empty chair.
I hear his voice a-callin’,
and it ties my heart in a knot.
For he cries, “Though a comrade has fallen,
You must play for those who cannot.”
We conquered worlds on the run,
he and I in the name of fun.
And as others may come and go,
I make both both friend and foe.
But what I long for most,
is our past now long a ghost.

You're most welcome anytime, DOC. I might be thousands of miles away across an ocean but I have all the respect a person can muster.

I would have liked to thank him once more for choosing Icar as a rock on which to grow a game that gave you so much joy.
