It is with great sadness we hear of the fate of a great adventurer, leader, and friend to many. Jon Johnson, character Highlord Krueger, the GM of Iron Brigade on Chesapeake, lost his real life in the Great Lake of Lake Erie, USA, on September 17. The following information was provided by Merseian CreagThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , Prince of Daemondred of the Order of the Sapphire Rose to the people of PaxLair:

Today Jamlyn Hakkendyn of the Order of the Sapphire Rose, placed a guildstone in front of the house in front of our tower in memory of Highlord Krueger GM of Iron Brigade. Clip from guilds email:

“When Lexia and i got back from the airport, i heard of Highlord Krueger’s death in real life. The leader of IB, Iron Brigade. We hade a funeral tonight at the meeting, i cried as well as alot of others. This game is more then, “just” a game, because we make Real Life friends, and thats what makes this not “just any game”. He died in a boating accident on Lake Eerie… GMs are making a memorial for him. I am going to lake Erie with Lexia in the morning to go boating, how ironic. Have a safe weekend everyone, HLK will always be with us.”

– Jamlyn Hakkendyn GM of OsR

During our Festival of Races this eve we will hold a remembrance ceremony on top of the Mage Tower. I ask all races and groups to come in peace to pay their respects. I invite a master bard to play soft music while people assemble and speak of their friendship with Highlord Krueger. Then we will have a moment of silence in his honor.

Tributes may be made at the remembrance and on the Iron Brigade messageboard and/or the PaxLair messageboard.
