Hmm... That is a good idea. I'd have to get some help from people, as I have absolutely NO clue what any of that Gods of the multiverse stuff was about. Later on im gonna go over those old threads.

Here's his last post. I... I cried quite a bit when I read the last line.

Adrian called out to Resoula, his patience ebbing with the room filling.
"Perhaps you would like a seat, mighty Resoula, out of your Phoenix form?"
Adrian looked around the table, observing those gathered. They all seemed to look back at him with questioning stares.
He waited for them all to take a seat so he could begin, nodding at Virtus as he sat down. Adrian watched the pheonix, waiting for the god to shift.

We should get this thread archived once it's said and done, as a permanent memento for Lathuria.


That would be awesome, if it could happen. I doubt it, though, but who knows?
It surprised the shit out of me, too. I couldn;t believe it, and I almost still dont. Its like a dreamy-feeling.

And sincerest thanks to everyone offering condolences and such. I really, really do appreciate it, regardless of if you knew him.
I wish I could show something like this to his siblings, but I dont think they would appreciate the thread. They're still a little young.

Well, as they say, all must die at some point. Hopefully he lived a good life, for as long as he did. Nothing left undone that should have been done, and whatnot. Best wishes to you and all who knew him.

My family uses the same prayer at every funeral, and though used in a religious context near every time, I find it touching. Perhaps you may too:

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow.

You could say i recently met him and i was starting to like him. I offer my condolences. Even though we had briefly met, something told me that he was a pretty cool character( and he let "break" his multiverse gods rp rule for having one character. I had high hopes of impressing him. We should honor him by archiving his thread as suggested).

His last post is quite touching. :(

(Damn drunk drivers always killing off the wrong people.)


EDIT:I guess it wouldn't hurt if i prayed for him, plus i'd feel better. Not only was i pissed today(school...gah) but this news just made me sad too.

Death, the grandest adventure of them all. The circumstances of his departure are quite tragic, yes, but I do not mourn those who pass, for death is not the end.

Good luck Lath, in whatever form your afterlife might take.

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.
