Its been six years ago today that we lost our dear friend. On the 23rd of July 2007, we lost a good man, a veteran of Siege, and a dear friend. Clifton “Cliff” Allen, known to the people of Siege Perilous as Ginsu and Aeric Horn, died unexpectedly and left a huge hole in our hearts and the community. I still think of him often and continue to miss his spirit and laughter. In my mind, he is still that glorious knight that once rode upon these lands defending the innocent against the forces of evil. Cliff treated people the way he wanted to be treated and that was always with kindness and respect, regardless of whether he knew you or not. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and gave an incredible amount of himself to his friends, guild mates and the entire Siege community. The bulk of his game play was spent making the game experience fun for those around him. Cliff was also one of a dying breed of true role players and had an amazingly creative mind for writing and role play. He was my first ever guild leader and he was the inspiration behind the creation of the guild [TNT], which Hattori Hanzo and I currently lead on Siege and he was the original founder of Stonehaven, the player-run town in which we reside. In honor of Cliff, his friends and guild mates created the Aeric Horn Memorial, just off the East Umbra bridge. This building is open to the public at all times and we invite you all to stop by and visit. Whether you want to pay your respects or just learn a little about a part of Siege history, the memorial is always open for you to enjoy. I can't believe its been six years since you left us, Cliff. I still miss you and always will.
