Hearing this makes me sadder than the last 30 seconds of the Super Bowl.

Best of luck to you.

Widseth, you will be missed--hopefully you'll check in on the forums more frequently than you currently plan. :)

Gencon hasn't really felt like gencon the past couple years. The explosive growth has really changed the tenor of things. Now it's almost impossible to just happen to run into people and it's always a madhouse of crowds and hallway-blocking cosplayers. I miss things the way they used to be.

Maybe if Jeff finally does start up a TD satelite at Origins all of us old-timers can migrate there and let the new geek chic have Indianapolis.

^^^^^ This.

I've pretty much given up on the dealer hall. Just too crowded. I run one minis event, but other than that I pretty much just hang out in the storyscape.

First, thanks so much for taking the time to give us an update. We all appreciate it.

Second, congratulations on your retirement and I am sure you will have a lot of enjoyment pursuing your other passions.

Third, thank you so very much for being a great inspiration for me personally. You have been such a wonderful part of True Dungeon, and your enjoyment of our efforts has helped to get my passion alive.

Finally, thanks for being such a great guy. Your kindness and friendship will be sorely missed by many in the TD community.

I like that idea. Closer to home.

Enjoy a well deserved retirement. True Dungeon is better for your involvement and you will be missed

You will be missed. While we never ran together you were always my idol here as the "only" bard.

Take care and enjoy the next phase.

Widseth, thank you for all the great times we had in True Dungeon. You may question whether your singing voice inspired your party, but I think was not the notes which you sang, so much as the words which you spoke, which provided the inspiration we needed.

You encouraged your party to work together. You listened - in the dungeon, on the forums, and hanging out in the tavern - to people who had something they needed to say. You spoke out when you saw something which needed to be done. You gave of your time, your money, and your spirit, to make this game better, and to help its players to be better people.

When I look at this excellent group of people in TD and I see them running for charity, or see them holding auctions to help others, I can't help but think that you helped establish that tone, early in True Dungeon. I still remember your involvement with the Hurricane Katrine run, and the memorial for Schuyler Patch which you shared with volunteers and veterans. You are a true Bard, and your inspiration goes beyond the fantasy realm, to touch our everyday lives.

Thank you.
