Greetings to you all.
Since this is the only place that holds such a thread (well at least that I know of since I am pretty much just keeping my nation alive in NS and not playing anymore) I decided to drop by and pay my respects for the player and the man I used to call Mooey and whose udders I loved to fiddle with every chance I got. Thanks to Krull for pointing me to this thread.
Coming into the bigger league from a very small region through TNP, then Lexicon and finally Taijitu I'd had heard of Moo more than one time and I believe that he has been one of the known figures of NS in the last 5 years or so whom I've connected to very quickly.
I have seen Nai mentioning the TRR stampede in connection to him and I just wanted to add that back then, during what has been the most intense game-play experience for me since I first started NS in 2004, Moo has been one of those who has done his best to keep exaggerated reactions to a minimum and helped others who resorted to personal attacks see the fun side of this game. It is for that feature that I will mostly remember him. He had the talent of brightening the room and always providing those who took life (in this case NS) too seriously, with a grain of salt.
I had been impressed to first hear his story but when we became pals and started chatting, I learned to appreciate him beyond the NS player that he was.
May his family find a way to overcome this, God knows it will not be easy, looking at the appreciation he is getting all around NS and CN, but such is life and I hope they will find comfort in kind memories, like we must. Godspeed to Moo wherever he may be and all the best to you all.
