    I'm not sure how many people are actually still left that knew my father Spartacus and I but I figured I would pop in and bring the bad news. My father passed away on 9-2-2012. He was 61 years old and played uo with me from 1999-2010. He still played after I left the game and we had built up 10 accounts together. He finally lost a year long battle with cancer. His wife and I have shutdown all of his UO accounts; neither us really feel like going through all the pixel crap as there is more than enough real stuff to sort through and get emotional about. If anyone I know wants to be friended to my houses so they can clean them out, I will do so because I'd hate to think an assclown like Diablo got any of it when the houses drop. I wont be selling any of the accounts as per his wishes. I have not played in almost 3 years and I have no intention of returning but I will get on long enough to try to access people.

    You won't know me, but just have to say I feel with ya about your father. I lost my father in 2008 to cancer (which had spread), he was only 64 at the time.

    But I can say some good news, Diablo isn't around as much on Siege. Still pops up much less drama from him.

    I do Tiberius. I would be honored to care for the "treasures" you and your father collected and use them for the good of the shard.

    You may have trouble patching if the client is seriously out-of-date. You are likely going to have to reinstall the game, which is best done by downloading the client from the website. It doesn't take that long with a decent connection.

    Very sad news to hear that. I remember playing with you and him. Many pvp and pve battles and many memories. It's good to hear you're still around and about. I occasionallyl run by the castle we placed together on Ice island... the one where they said a castle wouldn't fit ;) Anyways, take care and hopefully we'll speak again soon.

    Thank you so much for sharing your post with us Tiberius.

    Both you and your father Spartacus are in all of our hearts. Just hearing your names together bring back some fond memories ... memories that are not only a part of our history, but will be remembered well into our future.

    I would like to offer to remember your Father in our shard's Museum. If there is something of his that he truly loved.. a beaten up pair of shoes, a book, something he was fond of that we can use to remember him, please let me know and I would be my pleasure to create a permanent place for those to visit and remember.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Famine
    Siege Perilous Museum

    If your going to release some of your UO belonging's, I'd like them. We don't don't know each other, I have only played siege for 7-8 months. Otherwise I was Off and on on PAC. So if Siege is the only place you have played, we wouldn't have ran into each other. But Like I said. UO Pixels are always useful to someone. And if that someone could be me, well that'd be alright. It's probably Tacky to ask, but i did. I am Sorry to read of your loss, and Am not going to try to make you feel better with words from a stranger about something I can't relate too. It does sound like there are a few on here who can offer you support if you need/want it though. I do hope your days get easier in time though.

    Graciously yours,
    -Puck-

    Roll Tide bro. I got to watch the first half of the Bama/Michigan beatdown with him but he was pretty out of it. I kept having to point the big plays out and we would catch the replay (McCannon 55 yd td pass, the pick six, etc..). I left the hospital at half time because the game was already out of hand and he needed rest. If id known what was gonna happen the next day I would have stayed. At least we got him home the next morning and he passed with his family around not a bunch of medical people shoving tubes and **** down his throat. Taking my daughter to see Bama this weekend for her first game. Im also planning on hitting the Bama/Tex am game in nov.

    We always enjoyed playing with you even when you were on the opposing side trying to wreck our spawns.

    With my sincere sympathy. I spent my 30 years of rl research work in the fight against cancer, while sadly watching dear friends and family succumb to it. My prayers are with you and your family; thank you for sharing with us.

    Getting here very late to read this terrible news, very sorry for your loss. Spartacus was a great teammate, at times a great foe, and above that a great person. Occasionally we get to know the people behind these pixels and those lucky enough to get to know your father were by far better for it.
