Well...we did chop down one tree. you know, Circle of Life and such.

And then there was the time that we almost burned down our own grove.

That one was not really planned.

I'm glad Ogre's brother could reach out to us to let us know, though I sincerely wish that it had not been necessary in the first place.

Thain is what you make of it; No one will do anything for you. It's a video game, where we kill dragons in neverneverland. You can do whatever you want, and if anything, there will be droves of people to move in and support your idea. --Cannonfodder

I'm at a loss for words.

He'll be missed. His main was one of the most interesting, multi-dimensional ebil villains one could ever find. Yet as a person, he was always kind, thoughtful, patient, well-spoken, understanding, and creative. I can only imagine how hard this is on the people he knew and shared his life with in reality, not just in an internet game. My deepest condolences go out to them.

This is a difficult day, for sure.

I don't think Ogreman would want us to stop telling stories even for a minute. Keep him in your thoughts, remember how hard it is to be a villain, and remember how easy he made it look.

Goodbye, Ogreman.

Just terrible and sad news.

If anyone sees mentions of The Midnight Pixie or Wolf in any thing I write here, or RP with Malam, just know that he brought those characters into being.

His imagination helped create things that turned into good times that I could share with other players. He made me feel welcome here, just like he did for so many others.

Rest in Peace, Ogre.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I'm absolutely gutted by this news.

Ogre is one of the most friendly and inclusive players and would reach out to anyone to include them here on Thain - and I've enjoyed every moment of it. Both the in character plots and out of character chats ranging on everything from home renovations and all the rest. I rolled up my Thayan in large part because of him.

He will be greatly missed and I raise my glass in one final salute.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

"Imagine a ruin so strange it must never have happened. First, picture the forest. I want you to be its conscience, the eyes in the trees. The trees are columns of thick, brindled bark like muscular animals overgrown beyond all reason. Every space is filled with life: delicate, poisonous frogs, war-painted like skeletons, clutched in copulation, secreting their precious eggs onto dripping leaves. Vines strangling their own kin, in the everlasting wrestle for sunlight... A glide of snake belly on branch. A single-file army of ants biting a mammoth tree into uniform grains and hauling it down to the dark for their ravenous queen. And, in reply, a choir of seedlings, arching their necks out of rotted tree stumps, sucking life out of death. This forest eats itself and lives forever."

Damn . I don't know what to say. He will truly be missed. There is no doubt that the inspiration he's given will live on.
