    I can confirm. I talked to Excidium, who knows root personally, on steam and as he tells it root and him were hanging out over the weekend; they were on their balcony drinking, watching people get chased down and killed by the roaming machete rape gangs - a common form of entertainment in Brazil - when root says, out of the blue, "When you hear the bells you will know the time is near," and then threw himself from the balcony. He died immediately upon impact, painlessly.

    B-but... This is not how things should be.
    All those gems his mind could have created will now never see the light of day :(

    *sigh* He could have at least finished the LP first.
    :rpgcodex:

    Seriously, he was a bro amongst bros. He shall be missed and if this is a troll, I'm seriously going to kick someone in the balls. Maybe not any of you as you're all 5000 mile away foreigners, but someone, I will kick someone in the balls.

    edit: treave I will FIND you.

    You guys know treave is trolling, right? Root only left the Codex.

    Still, goodbye; I'll miss you. :(

    Well, at 9,999 comments he certainly picked a good moment.

    What the fuck? But...but..that's not how a true Space Marine should go down :cry:

    My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    I still remember it was because of root that I joined the Codex. One day as I was geeking over Warhammer lore I came across his Warhammer 42k thread and it instantly hooked me. Later I got to talk to him and he tutored me on how to write fiction and kept encouraging and we where even supposed to write together a couple of chapters for Dirge, maybe even start an LP with some ideas I had. Unfortunately college and my new job got in the way and we drifted apart, never managing to make due with those chapters. Now I feel horrible for postponing him this much.

    Goodbye root, you will forever be missed. :salute:

    Rex Feral, we've actually decided to set up a Codex fund to create a beautiful memorial in root's favela to commemorate his life. I'll be happy to discuss it further, but first I need you to PM me your credit card details so that we can complete your donation.

    I am sure most people are already aware of it, but he does not seem to have abandoned the 'Dex, either. The Shoutbox bot continues to archive his conversations just fine. :M

    That was a horrible way to troll people, BTW. :rpgcodex:

    You mean faking his own death in order to get out of finishing the LP?

    That, too. Good thing he had co-authors, though. They will inherit his debts to the Codexian society unless they are willing to file for bankruptcy of ideas.

    This LP does deal with resurrection after all.
