I suppose everyone who was anyone knew Raok as the map maker...but he was so much more wasnt as the come these days. Terrible loss...but perhaps he has ventured to a new world now. May his soul rest in piece, many condolences to you Saveena, old friend.

Raok was my first friend in this game, and brought me into my first guild, SaS. The mapping missions I was able to assist with and just the in game time with Raok will always be remembered. Raok is truly a legend of the Dransik and Ashen Empires world.

I am very sorry for you to have lost your father.

These both the virtual and real worlds are a lesser place without Raoks presence.

My deepest sympathy to all the family and friends of Raok. I did not have the pleasure of knowing him, but like so many I have appreciated and benifited from the work that he did with his mapping. I am so sorry for your loss Saveena, I wish there was something I could say that would make you feel better, but I know form personal experiance that there is no words that can help right now. So .... ((((((((Hugs)))))))))

You have my condolences Saveena. Roak was a great man and a great player of this game. I have known him a very long time and will miss him tremendously. He was an outstanding member of our community and contributed greatly to the dynamics of the game. I will truly miss him and I am here for you should you need anything.

RAOK was a great man and an awesome gamer. Though he gone from us now, let us never forgot him. From the first time that I met RAOK at level 10 at Drek Fortress, he influenced the way I played this game. RAOK was honest, he taught me how to make my first 20k. :) He also was a great leader.

Saveena, our prayers are with you and I truely hope you and your family get through this trying time. Let us never let us forget the memory of a great friend and gamer, the man we knew as RAOK.

If we are measured in the benefits we bring to others, in the lives we touch, and the lessons we teach then Raok stands among the giants.

His legacy touches us all and will continue to benefit so many who never will be privledged to have known him.

He will live on in all our hearts,

Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.

Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place in Asgard at the halls of Valhalla,
Where spirits of the Tru' may live forever.

Lo, here do I see my son.
Lo, here do I see my daughter, their daughters and sons.
Lo, here do I see the line of my people forward to the mists of tomorrow.

Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place in Midgard at the hearth of our folk.
Where the memories and spirits of the family will live forever.


Raok your name shall be remembered to this game forever. Your contributions have been grand. Saveena in the time of mourning, remember the great things that Raok has done for you and your family. If he was as caring for your family as AE.. I'm sure your days were filled with overjoyous love.

I cannot even begin to describe how I felt when Saveena told me that RAOK was gone. They are two of my best friends in 2 games. He gave me awesome advice and gave me the strength and courage to do things in my real life that HAD to be done.

I can't stop crying when I read these posts and I feel that anything I say is pale in comparison to the awesome man he was. I remember one time a friend of his lost a feather box he had made for him, he was so upset because RAOK had befriended him when he first came to the game. Once I asked him what his name stood for, he told me ROAK stood for Random Acts Of Kindness... I think his name says it all. I hope we can find a fitting way to memorialize him. I think being kind, loving, and helpful to new players is an excellent way to pass on his legacy.

I just know he touched all of our lives, the ones of us who were lucky enough to know him. I love him and Saveena dearly and I am so lost without his sage advice.

Saveena, please know we will be here for you when you need us. I just wish I could really give you a big hug and I wish I could have said goodbye to him. I love you both.

I speak for myself and many of the others out there that knew Roak, he is a very kind and caring person and will always be missed as a hero of AE. John, he passes on his legacy for you to continue his good works of mapping and exploring the new TR lands as well as the guidance of upcoming ad-ons to the game. True, he will be truley missed and I will always remember him like it was yesturday when I met him, he did his exploring for everyone's benefit of game pleasure and fun. Keep his memories fond and dear to your heart, as he will be missed. Strive to be the hero that your father was; John. Many others as well as myself and Angeline Silverfire stand beside you at your time of loss. God bless you and your family; you have all of the IoTR's support at your time of sadness. As always, your friend.

ROAK will be missed as the premier map maker of the day. His maps will live on.

Memorial for ROAK will be discussed in a different thread, I have been asked to help arrange it.

It will be on Sunday, Dec 4th, 3pm Eastern Time. More details will be posted elsewhere.

Sorry for the loss Saveena, from The Dragoneers and the Dransik Alliance.

I really wanted to post and try to attempt expressing how truly sorry I am for you and your families’ loss... I too lost my Dad not so long ago and I do know how hard it is to cope.

Just with our daily routines we know have to be taken care of is in itself a chore.

Death is extremely hard for me to deal with, so please forgive me for not posting my sympathies sooner... it's just too raw for me right now... if that makes any sense...

Again, ... I am so sorry for your loss. *Hugs Tightly*
