Well folks, its been eight years since Christian passed. Lets us raise our glasses to the scribes who are no longer with us.

quote:
From Ed Greenwood's 2009 thread, April 5th
Hello again, all scribes. I bring you now these words from Ed:

elfchild,
Thanks very much for telling us all of Christianís passing.
It has hit me harder than Iíd thought, possibly because Iíve lost so many good friends and family these last few years.
If we are wise, in life, we make friends and cultivate them - - be there for them, share experiences with them, stand by them, live life with them. Roleplaying gaming is one way to do that, and itís why I first played D&D in the Realms, and later shared the Realms with a wider world. Itís certainly not for the money; Iíd have made far, far more if Iíd done what my grandparents wanted, and become a doctor or a lawyer (both of which Iíd probably have been very good at, as it happens). I did it to make friends, and share laughs with them. On one level, it still amazes me when people Iíve never met, from far away around the world, excitedly ask me about this or that detail of a character or place Iíve created, and I become aware of how much IT MATTERS TO THEM. Leaving me awed I did that, somehow.
I, too, will miss Christianís jests and comments and queries; he was a welcome friend at my fire whenever he appeared. My loss is a trifle compared to yours, and to all who knew him personally and sat down to play D&D with him, yet it is a loss we all feel. I now really KNOW how grownups felt, when I was dragged (in my Sunday best) to small villages to attend funerals as a boy, and one adult would ask another, ďHowís old XXX YYY?Ē and the reply would be a grim: ďRemember how hard last winter was? Well, he didnít make it.Ē I feel that grimness now.
May Jamallo Kreen be remembered here, may Christian be remembered everywhere. I WILL answer his outstanding questions, for the rest of us to hear the answers and to honour him and because he just might be able to read those responses, somewhere and somehow.
Scribes, let us raise glasses, now and when April rolls around in years to come: to Jammlo Kreen! We shall not forget.

Very sad. Thank you for reminding us. When a board has been around for as long as this one has, well, life happens. And sometimes death. It makes me wonder how many others who have ceased posting over the years didn't have their lives become too busy for Candlekeep, but died instead and we never knew. Sigh.

Doggedly converting 3e back to what D&D should be...
Sigh... And now 4e as well.

I fondly remember most of the discussion Jamallo and I had about many and varied Realms topics. Both publicly and privately, he was a scribe of the highest caliber. Candlekeep is mostly certainly still mourning for his loss in this community.

You'll always be missed, my friend.

He lives on in my Realms! Highlore Master Jamallo Kreen.

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Is sad I never knew him (being relatively new here), as it seems he was a good influence for most of you. I hope he will be never forgotten.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopherís path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

A truly sad reminder indeed. Fond memories and sadly missed.

I always enjoyed his scrolls, I can't believe it's been 8 years.

Is there a hall of scribes who have passed on at the keep?

If not, there should be

-One of my jobs is online, and has a lot of back-and-forth with a community. When long standing members suddenly disappear, I often wonder the same and get worried. Hell, even over the years, here and at WotC, the same. So many people, all different situations, all over the world.

There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all

--- The Beatles



Then we raise a glass to them all, Lord Karsus. A glass to them ALL.
