A couple of days ago, one of the players in my alliance, a Colonel in the army for 26 years died. He played the game until the very last that he could. He gave his fortune to a homeless man, and his iPod that he was playing the game on to his nephew - who continues to play.

Today is his birthday.... And at 18:00 game time I would like everyone to have a moment of slience in respect of this man who loved playing the game and helping out others in need.

So, as his Chancellor, I would like to also request that we have a moment of peace from 18:00 to 18:20 where no one attacks.... thank you, Modius
