There is an empty chair,
at the table this day.
A hallowed place where,
a friend once played.
The roll of his dice,
my ears long to hear.
Or perhaps it would suffice,
if he should suddenly appear.
With character sheet in hand,
and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
All his friends would stand,
as he sat in the empty chair.
I hear his voice a-callin',
and it ties my heart in a knot.
For he cries, "Though a comrade has fallen,
You must play for those who cannot."
We conquered worlds on the run,
he and I in the name of fun.
And as others may come and go,
I make both both friend and foe.
But what I long for most,
is our past now long a ghost.

Thank you so much!

Te original eulogy was dedicated to Dave Arneson, one of the creator of Dungeons & Dragon, who passed away this year. Now I dedicated it to one of my most beloved friends, who used to master all of our rol games.

HOLY FRIGGIN' BLIND BEHOLDER ON A STICK ARNESON DIED?!
i mean.. i have no tv, but it's not like i live on the moon..
i did NOT know this..

but enough of that..
i feel with you and your friends.. i'm really sorry..
but in a dwarven warrior's (or his player's, at any rate) humble opinion, your master is sure to rest peacefully, what with that shiver-inducing, beautiful eulogy.
may his dice roll alongside arneson's and gygax's in the wallhalla of gamers.
all the best to you and yours.

Your words are so nice, thank you!
And yes, both Arneson and Gygax died, a great lost for the rol world.
