According to this thread, Britt Daniel, who signed in as Tetsujin28 on RPG.net and other forums died in a motorcycle accident. I never met him and only found out his real name after he was already dead.
We were drawn to similar threads, both being fans of Unknown Armies and later Burning Wheel.
I looked through my thread subscriptions, an odd way to gain recollections of someone. I found a thread, where he mentions his favorite forgotten fantasist, A. Merritt. I feel compelled to look that writer up now; the library where I work has a few of his books.
I’m bummed we never got to game together, never got to meet at a con and put name to handle to face.
Its not a crying, sobbing type of sadness, just a kind of numb ick, of an opportunity gone, an aquaintance that fate never allowed to become a friend.
Good-bye, Britt. I always looked forward to your posts on the internet forums where we posted, even your most curmudgeonly responses made me smile. The gaming world is a little poorer today.
