Chumbles

This is a tribute post, to Chumbles. He achieved over 100 victories in Triton. I met him about 8 years ago when he was first starting out with this game we love. He soldiered through agonizing medical treatments, like having his entire legs debrided once or twice per week, while resistance to morphine built. Yet he was able to be friendly and civil, to care about me in a way I can only call heavenly. He actually bailed me out at times, as if an angel. Like tears in the rain, my fellow players. That is the sort of community we have.

I was the inspiration for the badge that only he held, granted by Jay, that of a flambeau, a flaming torch. He was a torch-bearer. He shone light upon the darkness, and it was also an inside reference to us both loving the Age of Wonders series of games.
