Before I continue, let me say that Old Man is alive and well IRL but after months of thinking it over, he has chosen to leave the game after 17 years. Though this is "just a game" to many and he has his legitimate reasons, this hit us hard. Old Man (also known as Ral) was a part of our history. He and his sister, Sinder, were the first two players to befriend me on Baja and I feel like a piece of my heart was ripped out. Thankfully, friends talked him out of dropping his houses and are keeping them in the hopes that he'll return to us. Old Man was the guild leader of UTB since it was passed on to him by Anakin, many years ago. The guild leadership has now passed on to SheHitMeFirst and the guildstone is standing proudly in her house. The Doom Train will continue in Old Man's honor for as long as there's interest in doing it. I will personally miss Old Man, deeply. He is a friend and was a wonderful guildmate. He was there to lend an ear and one of those rare people who really cared. We've shared many laughs and yes, even tears as life turned on us. Thank you, Old Man, for bringing so much to so many. Life has been blessed by knowing you and my hope is that you will return to us. Be well, Godspeed, and may your life be blessed. *deep curtsey with hand over heart* Old Man was disappointed to find out that he couldn't ride the pink stuffy horse.
