A Memorial to a Fallen Friend
Please note that this was written late September and is only now seeing the light of day outside of the internal forums.

I signed onto Lineage expecting to see myself in Giran Castle, Shaolin was scheduled to siege and a win was expected... instead I logged on to find myself in house. I thought to myself, what happened why didn't we win? I now wish that our reason of loss never happened.

Today (or yesterday depending on your timezone) Lineage lost itself a fine player. Not to anything NC threw at him but to something far more devastating. The young man who played the character XxGlitchxX died in a tragic car accident. His death was announced to the Lineage world by his younger brother, and details were slow to come in. From what is currently known Glitch dropped his girlfriend off and while exiting, backed into the path of her father's tractor, crushing his car. It's a funny thing what death brings, obviously all that knew him well are mourning the loss of a good friend... but there is more to it than that. Me, Ramada, and several others decided to host a memorial service in Giran Center. Expecting the usual apathy that is shown to most people regardless of the reason we all figured that the turnout would be poor.

As one can see from the screenshot of everyone in a line, all fell behind our cause and our reason... For once in my Lineage life I saw Giran Center cleared... Even our enemies joined in the mourning ceremony. The turnout was odd though, most of the people did not know Glitch but grieved and showed support just the same... Later in the day another memorial ceremony was held, this while not as organized or as solemn it was impressive quite the same.

I don't know but I think the point I am trying to get across is that we should not fight over petty differences and little things. Lineage is just a game and what happens in the game really doesn't matter... What really matters is the people we love and live with and how important they are to us. And finally, please people, I beg of you, treat others like there is the chance that you will never see them again... The pain that one feels in not having said goodbye is just... I said nothing to Glitch the last time he said he was signing off... I figured he would be back again... If any of you have any thoughts, memories, or condolences for Glitch please e-mail me at Gorefiendk@aol.com.

Finally, I must try to bring a little closure to this for I did not get to say goodbye. Glitch: me, the rest of Shaolin and all your other Lineage friends will miss you with such magnitude that words cannot convey the feelings. To the family of our lost friend, the whole of Lineage gives their condolences to your loss and we all wish Glitch good luck in that great Lineage in the sky. Thank you.

The First Memorial Ceremony

A Final Farewell for our Fallen Friend

deviant, im sure if anything was mentioned or if his in game friends were notified of that tragedy that your friend would have recieved ceremonies like that as well. It's not that Glitch was special to all those people it's just that all those people shared in the grief that Glitch's friends were experiencing. We the Shaolin pledge and a few friends decided to hold our own services when everyone else decided to join in. I am truly sorry for your loss and my condolences go out to his friend's and family. I'm sure he is much happier in heaven.

im sorry for what i said before yes my friend committed suicide and yes i still can barely play lineage anymore because of it. and i did notify those he fealt closest to i guess i just think he deserves more. He was my friend and there for me when noone else was including my family. He was a true friend only a few can say theyve lost someone that would willingly die to help there friends. Im one of those people, this ones for you Vaelor wherever your at

The loss of any human life is a tragic thing.....that folks would pull together across the land of Aden to commemorate someone that most of us didn't know real well, now that's humanity at it's finest.

There is no truth to the rumour that Glitch's death was faked...His brother plays the character now in his stead, as he had found so much support here from all of us, that he decided to stick around. So every time we see him, we have a little of our lost friend with us.

Deviant, I am truly sorry that you lost your friend....it's a painful thing to lose someone that you are truly close to....I know that on Ken, we'd have done the same had we known about it...the lost of ANY human is something that hurts us all, regardless of what pledge he or she is in.
