Rest in Peace, brother.

Today has been a tough day. I, among many others, have lost a dear friend and guild member and the world has lost one of the very few genuinely nice people.

Mats HÃ¥limoen, otherwise known as Erc passed away after a fight against cancer, yesterday. Wulfy, who shared The Barrens Chat with him wrote a beautiful post.

I saw him as one of my best friends, even though I'd never met him face to face. We'd spend hours talking complete rubbish, but it never felt like hours, more like minutes.

We shared the good and the bad times, he was always there to listen to my rants, talk to me when needed and to correct my English. He was one of the most kindest human beings I've had the pleasure to know and I'm proud to have called him my friend.

I hope Erc, where-ever you are, you know how many people you affected in a good way. You where the reason I started my blog, you encouraged me to express my feelings towards a game we both shared a passion for and which will not be the same without you in it.

I never got to say goodbye, Mats. So here it is - goodbye, I'm glad you're at peace and I know where-ever you are, the people around you are better for you being there.


  1. I was thinking of you particularly Jakk... you must be missing your other spoon.


  2. You're in my thoughts Jak. Take it slow.

  3. I was hoping to catch you ingame actually but we seem to keep missing each other :(

    I know how close you guys were and I've been worried about you since I heard the news. If you need to talk at all, about anything, even complete rubbish, if I'm not online, send me a mail.
