One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
Raphael pinged me about his CF! account being banned for unknown reasons. His last forum posts were 30 August and 26 June 2018, and neither had any moderator action/comments on them. The message he gets when trying to access any page after the main CF! home page is: "You have been banned from these forums. Contact an administrator for more information."
I have banned four or so spammers in the last two weeks (your email regarding site spammers/trolls has me checking in more often), but this is from before then. Spammers usually only have a few posts up before I get to them, while Raphael has 76. . It would be unusual to ban a profile with that many posts (especially as I recognize him), unless there were spam posts tied to it, but it could have been done accidentally. Looks like he's no longer on the ban list, so Gary may have already addressed it. _________________ - Moderator/Admin (in some areas)/Member -
FTR, "Raphael" and "Rafael" are two different people. Rafael - Le Noir Faineant - still visits this place, occasionally, and has no problems logging in. - Allan knows the broader context of this; there have been a few cases of identity theft, lately.
Even though I don't have much time for Greyhawk, any more, Canonfire is still home. Thank you for taking such good care of it, always! _________________ "Rise, O artist, from thy slumbers - hasten from thy couch unworthy;
