Hello all,


Unfortunately one of our own, @GM Cyclone, also known as @Robotech_Master, was the victim of a tragic hit-and-run accident late last week. He had been receiving treatment over the past few days, but unfortunately he passed away this morning.


Cyclone was a tireless contributor to the community, both through his time spent as a Game Master and the countless guides he'd written. He will be sorely missed.


A memorial has been set up in Ouroboros on Torchbearer, his home server, for those who wish to pay their respects.

Oh no. I've known R_M since the 90s, and he was always been enthusiastic about his hobbies, and showed genuine love for the community. I was just thinking about the last time we'd talked - it was years ago, when CoH was still live. Wish I'd sent him a PM when he was still here. Wish he was still here.


This is so tragic.

This tragic news still makes me both angry and incredibly sad at the same time.


Some cowardly fool, with their negligence, self-indulgence, lack of responsibility and 5,000-lb. vehicle - took this wonderful, productive, loving [and well loved!] man's life away from him, his family, his RL and online communities, and the world in general, which was so much better with him!


I can't bear to remove RM's name from my global still, yet it reminds me of his passing each time I see it and it makes me so sad...so frustratingly, deeply sad.


Rest In Peace RM.  Thank you for all you did for me and so many others.


Thinking of you today and just wanted to write...

RM wrote a LOT of good fiction, some of it slightly fanfic, some not.

I first met him online in the early 1990s on one of the Usenet boards, which was dedicated to "roleplay" via stories.


He continued writing even up to the accident.  Here's a (large-ish) collection of his work, solo and in collaboration with other writers.

It's a "shared universe" thing, so note that one or two of the other were less skilled or had a different take on things.
