    This was my submission to Draconi :

    Dear Draconi,

    I hope you are well, and you and your loved ones are enjoying a happy holiday season.

    We on the Legends shard have just lost one of our long time loved ones. She was known on Stratics as "Deadly Shadow", in the real world by the name "Darlene", and to many of us in game as "Lady Pheonix" or "Lady Pho".

    Myself, I knew her as "Sue", a name she asked me not to reveal to others as being associated with her "more public names". She used this name to perform anonymous generosities and to sometimes attempt to mediate.

    She was a kind elderly woman who did anonymous kindness, as well as publicly known kindnesses.

    In game she started and ran a guild known as "The Mighty Orc Slayers" O/S - and provided for fun rp, a sanctuary for many.

    She was an anonymous "core" member of a guild known as "FAL" - I have never known the GM of FAL ("Plucky Duck") to be so silent as since her illness was announced a few months back. As a core member she negotiated many kind acts for people who have no idea she was advocating their enrichment. Few knew she was a member of FAL.

    In ventrillo she was complaining about a pain in her lower rib cage last spring, and now she is gone.

    She left behind a castle which she worked very hard to decorate.

    She was loved by many.

    I respectfully ask that you consider locking down her castle on the Legends shard as a tribute and memorial to a well loved member of our community.

    More information and the obvious love we have for her can be easily found on the Legends Stratics forum.

    In the event that EA representatives read this and consider it, the Legends community should have their input one way or the other in a public thread. So I post this here for our Legends community, that comments, pros or cons can be discussed.

    Please be respectful of opinions, a locked down castle spot is not a small thing to ask. There can be legitimate opinions on both sides of this type of discussion.

    My understanding was that Tim was going to keep the Castle account going.

    Tim (Hardcase) will be taking over her castle.

    Peace Ping
