Oh dear. We lost another one. :smallfrown:

Is this hobby dying?

This hobby, dying? Never!

But we are losing our founders. :smallfrown:

On the brightside, at least that means the hobby has survived long enough for its founders to start dying of old age. I think there's something to be proud and happy of about that.

Still, RIP.

Dear All,

This news gives me pause. I exchanged letters with Mr. Willis some twenty years ago.

CoC remains the best game I never really played. A skill deficit and poor decisions led to my missing out on it.

He's in my prayers.
