    Tags: Death; SuicideBunny

    Death. It comes for us all. Some sooner than others. Such was the case with SuicideBunny, a beloved moderator here at the RPG Codex.

    On January 19, one of our more dedicated mods had an unexpected ruptured aortic aneurysm and subsequently died.

    And now, SuicideBunny is no longer with us.

    He was a perfect fit for the Codex, willing to engage in lively discussion on a range of topics, mostly jRGs, and so the daunting task of fighting for incline in jRPGs and MMOs were left to him. It's a job that doesn't always grant praise from the locals, yet Bunny had many brofists to his name, and there is no question that his work was valued.

    A member since 2007, it's appropriate that his last post was dedicated to slamming the shittiness of modern game design:
    His first post was answering a question about How to find some sane people among pnp role-players? While his most fisted post was fittingly a great newspost on Codex darling UnderRail.

    At age 35, it was way too early to go, and our thoughts go out to whomever this affects beyond the walls of the Codex.

    We have discussed giving a last nod to SuicideBunny and what he has meant for this site, by inserting a memorial in a few, select Kickstarted games that the Codex has an influence on. We'll work something out shortly.

    As a final word, here are a few examples of a stand-up moderator on the job:

    There's no question in our minds that SuicideBunny was a fucking bro. See you when we too run out of words. :salute:

    Really a damn shame, and very unexpected. Hope he's got lots of incline to deal with wherever he's at now.

    Isn't there a tradition of making up death stories for mods who leave?

    It's always too soon, especially at 35, shame to see someone so young lose his life.

    I guess one day a mod will really die and we'll all just assume it was yet another Codexer with RL reasons for wanting to cut ties with this den of infamy.

    It's for real this time, I'm afraid. Have a look at Facebook and see for yourselves, if you want.

    It didn't really hit me that the man is really dead until I saw donation badges for three games he didn't get to play underneath his name. :(

    35 is right around the corner for me. Dying that young is utter bullshit. Condolences to all involved outside the 'dex :(

    35 is really young, that is unfortunate. RIP.
