    Hey all, just wanted to let everyone know that Suicidal Gnome passed away last night. Though he has not played in many years, those who knew him could tell you what a great guy he was. His name is synonymous with early UO PvP. He passed away from a blood clot that traveled into his lungs. He is survived by his wife, mother, sister, and the so many friends that knew him and loved him.

    Gnome was like a brother to me. Ive known him the last 15 years. I am blessed to have known him and am a better person for it. Lord knows he's saved me from stepping of the ledge a time or two. Please keep his wife and family in your prayers.

    I had known Gnome all those years ago, fighting alongside and against him. But hadn't he recently started playing again?

    It's a very sad day.

    I'm so sorry to hear this news. I remember him PVP'ing with friends and guildies. Gnome was an awesome ally. It's sad to hear of someone so young leaving this world so early. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

    Very sad news. He was always a joy to chat with and helped me understand some of the ways of pvpers. Prayers of comfort to you and his family. He lives on in our hearts and memories.

    We will place a special candle in the Sonoma Chapel to honor his memory.

    Gnome was a good guildie, good person, and a good friend. Sad Day indeed knew him ever since the original EFL days on Sonoma. May he rest in Peace. His memory will live on through his friends and in game.

    May his atoms drift as they did before. Gnome was great for a laugh.

    I played with Gnome for years, with him and against him. He was always a great person and a true friend, loyal to a fault.

    May his memory live on and my condolences to his family.
