This is it ... Goodbye Sonoma!

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by DeathRage, Feb 5, 2003.

    A couple of weeks back I made a trip out to the YMCA to visit Dor. I went with the purpose of retiring my jersey and jingly jester's hat. After having a long "fare thee well" with a woman I've known for many years, I decided that Sonoma and the life I've known with the NUBs should dwindle away from me that day.

    I have many fond memories of my adventures with friends and strangers who would happen upon our choatic journeys. Good memories that leave my sides in pains of laughter whenever I recall them.

    For my friends and those who knew me, I apologize for my abrubt departure. I had originally intended for one last night of lunacy and deathrobe collecting. However, I just couldn't bring myself to cloud those happy times with tearful goodbyes.

    Remember the joy, laughter and direction to the nearest healer and you will always remember the gentle soul lost in a confusing world of dismemberment ...

    Huggles and wet kisses for all of Sonoma,
    retired guildmaster/illustrator for the Newbie Underground Battallion.

    Goodbye Sir. I never had the chance to meet you in game, but your posting here on this forum had always brought a smile to my face. Today it not there, I can only hope you continue with your work and wish you the best of luck in all you do.

    [​IMG]May a Guardian Angel forever watch over you and your love ones.
  3. Try this again and see if the forum will let me post.

    Thank You and Goodbye, DeathRage.
    Thank you for your art, the Nub Hunts, for your added charisma you added to this community.
    May your pencil always be where you left it last.

    Safe travels to you DR. I know we got off to a rocky start but I've come to value you as critic and I really enjoyed working with on the graphics team for Stratics too.

    So Long DR. May the sun shine gently on your face and the wind blow softly at your back.

  6. Thank you for the many fine memories of wandering Sosaria in the glorious color of black and white.

    Thank you for constantly bringing your wisdom and sage advice while you moderated this forum.

    Thank you for sharing all those wonderful original artwork with us all as well as making those incredible portraits for so many of us.

    Thank you for bringing so much to Sonoma and the NUBs.

    In short, thank you for being you and although you will be missed you will never be forgotten. Please stay in touch with some of us!

    well I never got out to hunt with you quite as often as I should have, but you will still be missed. Good luck in whatever the IRL brings your way.

    Ooooo you dirty dog! I suspected this would happen. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/mad.gif

    You have been missed for some time, and we (NUB's and Sonoman's in general) will always cherish the many fine and often fatal adventures we had with you.

    Thank you for making UO and Sonoma Shard a great experience for myself and so many others.

    Good luck in all your undertakings.
  9. Okay Deathrage... you think you're leaving now... but sooner or later you'll head back to the YMCA asking for your clothes back! ^^
  10. Ahhh...such a bittersweet occasion.

    Laughter/tears/laughter/tears/laughter...*attempts to juggle them*

    One small, burning question leaps to my mind, though...



    What the HECK is yer Cow's name? Surely, she must have had a name? I feel sort of silly, patting her on the head when I walk by, and murmuring, "Good Cow. Faithful Cow."

    She is udderly determined to guard yer remains into perpetuity. :)
  11. DeathRage

    DeathRage Guest

    I called her, "Cow"
    But if you need a more formal name, I find that "Quarter Pounder with Cheese" or "Kewpie" fits her nicely. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    I did not know you personally, but over time I have read about your many exploits and endevours to keep the community happy and entertained.

    May your wonderful skills of art and entertainment follow you wherever life may lead you.

    Hey DR!

    *blows kisses, waves a hanky*

    Right now I am reminded of that immortal moment in True Romance, right before everything goes to crap, and patricia arquette just keeps thinking those three little words that sum up my feelings toward you:

    You're so cool. You're so cool.You're so cool.

    Safe Journies, although looking at your sig THAT seems pretty dern unlikely. hehe /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    I haven't been informed on why you are leaving. Can you or someone inform me why?
  16. Guest

    Guest Guest

    May you excel in all your future endeavors. Your posts and stories of your outings always brought a smile to my face ( and most of the time hysterical laughter). Your antics
    and presence will truly be missed on these forums as well
    as in Sonoma.

    Safe Journeys

    Figured I'd pipe in my piece as well [wink/]. I never did aventure with you either, but I think I passed you once in game, that's about it, lol. I've enjoyed reading your posts though, and have loved the artwork. Good luck with everything you do.

    _Dax_ Guest

    Well I'm another one that never did really get to know you very well, seeing as how I lurk more than I post, and I only ever made it to 1 NUB hunt, the last one. But I am sad to see you go, you definatly brightened up the place with your comics as well as your personality. Good luck to you.

    DR Filed his retirement papers prior to you being appointed to the UO Retirement Authorization Board.

    Sorry for the mix up. /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Guest Guest

    DeathRage, I for one have never met you in game or attended a NUB hunt (which looked like fun by the way) BUT im sorry to hear that your leaving.

    See ya.
  21. brokensaber

    brokensaber Guest

    Not leaving the game is he?
  22. Cymeraen

    Cymeraen Guest

    Sadly he has retired from UO.

    Truth be told, he retired from UO round about October of 2002 as I recall. He did make a few cameo appearances after that, but they were extremely rare at best.

    He should have been renamed LingeringDeathRage for the time it took him to finally give up the ghost /php-bin/shared/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Well dang. Next week AOS kicks in and it will be more or less a new game.
  24. Cymeraen

    Cymeraen Guest

    we tried everything short of paying him a salary to keep him playing.

    His reasons for quiting are all valid, mixing personal growth with a dash of disillusionment. He is chasing (and catching I hope) muses now, and I wish him all the success in the world.
  25. Ouch! I just came back to read you are gone.
    I wish you the best for the future DR.
    You've always been a big part of Sonoma life and it is sad to see you go.
    Take care of you. I will miss your DR cartoons.
