    I called him Gabsters he always took us into unusual places in a game never for profit other then trying to get the biggest and strongest dragon. We would always have very long interesting conversations on voice chat.

    I met him twice in Huston Texas where he lived and worked as a Medical doctor head of the ER.

    Gabsters died June 28 2015 he was 67. His sister will decide who will manage his accounts.

    Gabe will be missed a lot

    Sad to hear. Met him a few times in game, most memorably right after I returned from a long break doing balrons in the blood dungeon.

    Those two establishments are some of my favorite historical sites.

    Didn't know him. But sorry to hear it. Always a shame when an important part of a guild and a shard passes away.

    He sounds like one of the greats. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, both in-game and out.

    At one point he said he had 1200 people in OSR with Ancient Order which was second largest on Napa Valley with 400 at that time.

    They staged a large protest at lord British castle on Napa. It was the most number of people in a small area I have ever seen in this game and everyone was on dial up. Someone did manage to get a pic but I haven't seen it in a long time.

    None of us are getting younger. I will always tip my hat and pay homage to a player. Fare well.

    Truely sad to hear of his passing. He was one of the players that made Napa proud of its history. He use to take me on historical tours of myth island and always new how all the things that made napa unique and special had come to pass. Bryanna and I even held our in game wedding at the cathedrial some 14 years ago. It is a great tribute to him that some of his homes are being continued on. Napa has lost so much over the years. This is tragic news. My thoughts go out to his family and friends both in game and out.
