This is Goodbye.

I am sorry that I will not be able to finish my threads: "Elder Dragons" and "Pages from the Royal Chef's Cookbook"; but I was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given 1-2 months to live. I will miss you all and hope to recover and beat this thing; but I have to prepare for the worst. For those that want more of my content, you can find some on DriveThruRPG. I hereby give permission to Enworld to reprint my Enworld books as wanted or needed. There are a total of 13 books or short works, but most are no longer available on DriveThruRPG. If anyone wants a personal copy, email me (soon) and I will try to send you what you ask for. All the stuff I write is for 3.5e D&D, but most could be easily adapted to 5e.

Good luck and God Bless

I just stumbled upon this.

No one has posted because no one knows how to respond to this. So I'll start.

I don't know you. But given that you're preparing for the worst, please know this and carry it with you in your battle. Whether you prevail or not, you mattered. Your life mattered. It meant something. And it meant something to way more people than you could know. And it meant a lot to a certain few.

I hope you win.

David,

I'm so sorry to hear this, but take comfort in the knowledge that people have often beaten the odds and lived for much, much longer than the doctors have predicted. I'll pray that you'll be one of them.

Best of luck - you've got an entire "EN World family" here pulling for you!

As someone who lives with leukaemia and has a number of family who live with cancer and all that entails, all I want to say is stay positive and do what is good for you and your family - its the emotional and social support of friends and family that matters most...
 




I don't know quite how to respond. I won't bother with trying to be optimistic and unrealistic about your chances. This is just one of those moments where no matter how hard you fight, sometimes the game is up and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But I hope that you know that you've made a real differences in the lives of many many people. For one, you've made a valuable contribution to a hobby we all cherish, and you've probably contributed to the lives of many others in ways we don't even know of. I salute you for being brave enough to share something so hard on a forum with dozens of complete strangers. And I give you an extra salute for using what little time you may have left to make sure that your legacy is in good hands.

I hope you beat this thing against all odds, but if not, you will be missed by many.

Thank you all for your blessings; I take them to heart. My thought as a thank you is to drop some of the shorter works that are no longer available on this thread. These were all published by Clockwork Golem Workshop and are based on Dragon Magazine's: "Pages from the Mages."

Dear David,

Thank you for your courage in sharing this sad news with us.
Thank you for your substantial contribution to the hobby.
Many of us don't know you personally, and are just learning your name today, but you are one of us, and a meaningful part of this community.

And we are all diminished.

You will need strength and courage in the weeks to come, and I pray that you find them.
God bless you and those you love --
Toph

Preparing for the worst is tough. You got love sent your way by Ohio and all those joining me in praying for your health and well being. Thanks for all your poay
 

I wish you much strength David on the difficult road ahead. I hope you do not have to walk this difficult path alone. I'll repeat that you are indeed one of us. I wish you all the courage and strength in the world.

Sorry to hear such bad news. I hope you can beat it, and that you can have a long prosperous life ahead of you. Failing that, I hope that the time you have left will be painless, and that you can spend it with your family and friends, in a way that matters to you and them.

Really sorry to hear this. Like someone noted above, I'm sure this thread would have dozens more replies if people knew what to say. Besides "that sucks", and you probably know that already.

I'm not much given to philosophising, particularly on a public forum, but I believe that we live on as long as the ripples of our lives continue. For what it's worth, I hope you and yours can draw some comfort from that idea.
