Confused and curious. Fred, I thought this was your farewell, but then you say you visit HC daily. I guess it was preemptive since it's uncertain when something might happen to you? Would be cool if you hanged around more, no doubt. At the same time I can't help but wonder what's going on around you.

Death is nearly certain, but it'll be later on; i may have 2-3 months, i don't know. I feel like a man with his head through hole of a guillotine, waiting for the blade to drop. Doing what i can to leave the world in a better spot after i'm gone.

ahh, I was wondering if it was a tumor.  Judging from your near certainty I'm guessing it's a brain tumor.

@Fred, you should let somebody here at HC know what's going on in your real life so that we can give you a proper viking funeral thread when the time comes.

Just out of curiousity if you had a bucket list what would be on it?

Unfortunately it does feel that way. When your read through freds posts, aside from some imprecise bits, it does sound like he recently found out through medical check that he in fact has an advanced cancer. I went through this a couple of times as some of my family members had this illness. And to be frank, it's NOT a lost cause.

As such I understand his emotional rollercoaster, and why he's so focused on the notion of "having x time left to do things". My first thoughts were some law related problems, but now all the pieces are starting to get together.

Sorry if I got ahead of myself, but it's just how it all sounds to me...

If this is in fact the truth, you don't need to confirm it fred...

Just, hang in there!

my cousin had skin cancer. Not sure how dangerous skin cancer is but she survived and she continues to practice dentistry (she's a dentist). I just fixed my teeth at her cabinet 5 months ago.

I don't remember what she's done (I think she went to England to get surgery or chemotherapy or something), and she's a vegetarian now, but she's all live and happy.

So yeah, not everything is lost

Anyone checked my 3 maps out yet(played or just scanned in the map editor)? Critiques? Improvements? I'd like to see how people tailor those to their own personal preferences.

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear that you're leaving HC!!!

I'm really grateful and appreciative of the amazing images you've been able to create and really contribute to all of our gaming experiences.  Your talent will be missed.  

PS for that latest download, if I upload it to my Heroes folder will it install all the images you have made?

I'm still relatively new and I don't really know you fred, but you seem to have made a big impact on the community. Sad to see someone who is so well liked have to leave, so I wish you the very best and hope you return one day.

Still here, still reading, still wondering why the HotA team supposedly aren't releasing the new content in May like Docent(i think?) said they were.

@foh: you should be able to drag and drop some stuff. I add my stuff to the "wog" subfolder myself(actually, REPLACE is what i should say. If you aren't using era 1.8, the scripts won't work, tho); to make a patch for era 2(again, the scripts need updated for era 2 compatability).

@ oddball: thanks. I certainly hope so, myself; but i highly doubt it.

Thanks, ghost.

@ FoG; sorry reply is so late. I don't have the dough, the time, or the means to complete my bucket list; if that's what you're wondering. I've been spending time with family and friends, and trying to make the most of what i've got left. I have to continue working to help pay bills; so i only have scant free time if i want to get any rest for work, and to keep myself as mentally acute as possible.

Still here, obviously. We'll see if I'm still here by the end of the year. It's still an emotional rollercoaster; torment, hatred, despair, rage, pain, the works. I'm struggling to cope most days; but I have a great boss who is able to keep me fighting on through this snowing absolute bullsnow. I'm having to refine all my hatred, rage, and towering disgust into something productive and positive, and it's the hardest thing I think I've ever done. I've come to the understanding that everything life has put me through thus far has prepared me for something as hellish as this. I know that if I had never been through the hell I've been through thus far, I never would be able to overcome this; it would have swallowed me whole.

Sometimes you cannot know how strong you can be unless it becomes your only choice. Whatever the case keep at it, don't let it jade you. I'd like to think that you will turn out a much improved person by the end of it.
