It is a sad day in the realm of Foxmud.

The great Creator, Sygis, has passed from this world and into the next.

He will be greatly missed by those of us who knew him in the real world,
and were fortunate enough to call him friend.  The world of Foxmud has
lost quite possibly it's largest advocate.

There is much else that can be said, and perhaps should be said, but now
is a time for rememberance, and reflection on a life lived well, although
still cut way too short.

I miss my friend. We kept not being able to catch up in RL. I at least got to talk with him on Fox.

There is little of FoxMUD that Bob didn't touch, from the help files--almost entirely his work--to the code, to the building, to policy discussions.  Beyond his contributions as staff, however, he contributed to the player base with several alts--known and anonymous=--and was often to be found both "upstairs and downstairs" keeping things running smoothly.  More than that, though he was a friend to many of us, making time to listen when we took the time to talk.

He will be missed from our realms.

May his journey from here on out be bug-free!

I knew him as a fellow administrator of an online game, FoxMUD, in which he was a key presence for 15 years. While our loss at Fox cannot compare to that of his family and close friends, he invested thousands of hours of time in creating a fun environment for a great many people. The enormous amount of work he put into every aspect of the game will remain as a testament to his creative genius. Simply put, he was irreplaceable to our community and it will never be the same without him.
