Zaida Gearbox: jimmy was like the spirit of new babbage for me
Drewski Northman: Same, Zaida
Edward Pearse: I love this piece but I find it hard to listen to
Nathan Adored: maybe we should name a ship the Spirit of Jimmy to honor him?
Zaida Gearbox: if i ever finish that fancy victorian i have up in the fells it’s going to be branagh hall
Janet Rhiadra: what sort of ship?
Tepic Harlequin: More like name a spirit the Ship of Jimmy!
Fianna Physt: It would have to be huge ….
Darlingmonster Ember: oh good one Tepic
Zaida Gearbox: i can’t hear any music?
Beryl Strifeclaw: There’s still a few monuments he created here and there, isn’t there?
Arik Metzger: I know what you mean, Edward
Sophie: It would be nice to have something named in his honor. He was such a good guy.
Mavromichali Szondi: we’re sittink in vun of em
Arik Metzger: Well, Innsmouth now has a permanent tribute, made by his own hands.
Janet Rhiadra: where is it Arik
Avariel Falcon: I must visit that Arik
Arik Metzger: An entire Lovecraft story scene
Arik Metzger: I’ll be sure to share

Janet Rhiadra: i want the landmark
Zaida Gearbox: yup
Arik Metzger: I have his Dagon Hall as well
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: the whole chair?
Zaida Gearbox: and the wax museum across the street
Loki Eliot: I used this music i think, or Jimmy did, for when he did the performance piece on the life of Jon Merik
Zaida Gearbox: the whole townhall you goofball
Sophie: I hope he deeded the museum to the city
Drewski Northman: Arik, was that the underwater story he made for LoveFest?
Zaida Gearbox: i’m not sure jimmy realized how short his time was
Mr Tenk shakes his head to sophie
Sophie sighs
Janet Rhiadra: he was an amazing builder
Fianna Physt: It is his Coulor out of space setting
Sophie: J.B. it was an honor to meet ya.
Nathan Adored nods nods nods
Arik Metzger: We have his “The Colour Out of Space” farm and forest scene as part of Innsmouth’s Lovecraft experience
Janet Rhiadra: i just read that story again
Arik Metzger: I’ll be reading it live Wednesday, a couple different times, in tribute
Fianna Physt: Let me know when Arik, will see which I can make it to.
Arik Metzger: Well, at minimum, will read 7am and 7pm SLT. But thinking to do 12pm as well
Arik Metzger: For all Jimmy’s friends and fans
Fianna Physt nods “I’ll try to make it to one, maybe two.”
Zaida Gearbox is sorely tempted to tug tepic’s tail
Janet Rhiadra: Did any of us know him in rl?
Zaida Gearbox: no
Fianna Physt: no
Zaida Gearbox: jimmy was very careful to keep RL and SL separated
Mavromichali Szondi: he vos very private
Mr Tenk: no. he was very private about that.
Fianna Physt: He was to private for that
Arik Metzger: I don’t think anyone knew him RL, Mr. Tenk coming closest
Avariel Falcon: Jimmy was like me in that
Mr Tenk: rarely broke character
Ceejay Writer: Rarely dropped the accent. 🙂
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: waves to Killua
Edward Pearse: He even typed his accent in private IM
Arik Metzger: He shared a few things here and there with me, but not about his latest health
Mavromichali Szondi: und dot iz hardt goink hy tell hyu!
Mr Tenk: i started seeing a little of the real him at story time. he really loved horror.
Philip Underwood: Jimmy and I chatted about marginal stuff. His small quarters, his bad ass Alienware machine
Arik Metzger: Here her,e Clockwinder 🙂
Edward Pearse: Thank you everyone for coming
Edward Pearse: For me the worst part of this is not knowing if it’s actually true
Silas Merlin: how long can the wax museum be expected to remain in place ?
Nathan Adored: For as long as New Babbage exists, I hope…. 0o
Edward Pearse: But that is one of the pitfalls of a digital life
‘Fuzzbutt’ Fardoragh hisses a “shhhhhhh”
Skusting Dagger: Good day, folks
Silas Merlin: Nathan, I suspect this would require “sponsorship” of some kind
Edward Pearse: It’s certainly been something of a shock
Darlingmonster Ember: nods
Connor Bagshawe: sometimes it’s nice to believe there’s hope, I suppose :/
Edward Pearse: Jimmy was a cornerstone of Babbage
Nathan Adored: That he was
Mr Tenk: Mr Pearse, you didn’t have a clue when i moved you into the land admin spot?
Mr Tenk: back in fall?
Edward Pearse: I’d been Admin for ages and it didn’t twig, no
Mr Tenk: you have no idea how hard it is for me to lie
Mr Tenk: must have been a good one
Zaida Gearbox: If Jimmy was still with us I think he’d be logging in if only to check messages
Edward Pearse: I think I first met Jimmy around 2010 when he moved into the Coronet Gardens plot up on the cliffs when he set up the Church for the Esoteric Order of the Dagon.
Ceejay Writer: I had an inkling things were not right around mid-December, Salon tasks were slipping. He mentioned family issues and nothing more.
Arik Metzger: Jimmy’d be that guy who’d attend his own funeral 😉
Edward Pearse: Lovecraft myths had seeped into steampunk and had found themselves a home within New Babbage.
Edward Pearse: Jimmy had a thing for tenticles. Kids these days, really.
Nyx Malaspina adjusts the hat that Jimmy tried to sit on once at the Bucket of Blood and sighs softly.
Fianna Physt smiles
Edward Pearse: Jimmy would always type with an accent.
Edward Pearse: Possibly the bastard accent of Dick Van Dyke and Keanu Reeves’ versions of Cockney but it was endearing.
Darlingmonster Ember smiles
Nathan Adored: Irony is, the round-robin story universe my persona came from…. also had Lovecraftian stuff in its history.
Edward Pearse: His greeting of “Hoi Awl!” was a common occurance.
Ceejay Writer laughs in spite of herself
Oriana smiles
Edward Pearse: For a while he tried to convince me that I should type with a Connery akshent sho people would get a better feel for how I was shupposhed to shound.
Zaida Gearbox: i think it was late november- to mid december when i started to suspect something wasn’t okay he was getting more and more erratic about logging in and didn’t stay long – he kept saying it was because nothing was going on – but he also started talking about having jimmy come into his inheritance
Edward Pearse: It didn’t take.
Nyx Malaspina: but considering we can’t understand you now…
Arik Metzger: heheh an Island Boy’s perspective on an American faker
Vic Mornington: o.O
Edward Pearse: He even made me a mesh Connery head that I was using to try and model the Bento head.
Darlingmonster Ember: nice
Edward Pearse: He was involved with RP within Second Life and was initially part of a Dune RPG sim called Arakis.
Edward Pearse: When the sim got hit with a cease and desist and was shut down, I believe he moved here.
Arik Metzger remembers Arakis fondly
Silas Merlin: “come into his inheritance”?
Edward Pearse: For a time he roleplayed Joseph Merrick.
Skusting Dagger: Jimmy was probably among the first 5 or 6 people I met when I first came here
Zaida Gearbox: jimmy was already here when mara moved here in late 2007
Skusting Dagger: I remember when he did John Merrick
Edward Pearse: I’m going to play a piece from that now
Nyx Malaspina: omg yes
Zaida Gearbox: i can’t hear anything kicks computer
Liz Wilner: I can’t get the stream to start…grr
Arik Metzger: stream listenership may be overtaxed
Mr Tenk: try pasting it into itunes
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: (play the stream in a browser, could you post that in local Edward please?)
Nathan Adored: or into winamp, come to that
Gabrielle Riel Morningstar:
Edward Pearse: It’s supposed to cope with 100, but this is SL, and New Babbage
Nyx Malaspina: it’s lovely
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: Thank you Gabi
Harperlass Resident sticks her toes in the rungs of her chair and bites her lip finding the musical choices very affecting
Gabrielle Riel Morningstar: SL audio is failing in the client constantly now. I recommend you open it in a media player or browser.
Arik Metzger: I remember this piece from when I watched years ago
Now playing: John Morris – The Elephant Man Main Theme
Silas Merlin:
Skusting Dagger: It’s not just the wax museum. Will this building stay?
Edward Pearse: Continuing his RP exploits
Edward Pearse: He ran Popplefoot’s Blacking Factory.
Edward Pearse: He and Myrtil were behind the Midwich Cuckoo invasion of Babbage.
Zaida Gearbox nods
Darlingmonster Ember: 😀
Arik Metzger grins
Zaida Gearbox: myrtil was creeky gloom
Edward Pearse: As well as Creaky Gloom I believe
Beryl Strifeclaw: That was Myrtil…
Edward Pearse: Jimmy was heavily into the Cthulhu mythos and was extensively involved in Lovefest over the years.
Beryl Strifeclaw: But yes
Nathan Adored: The Midwich Cuckoo thing still gets under my skin…. even tho it was from before my time….
Ceejay Writer: ❤ the Cuckoos.
Oriana lovely tune
Edward Pearse: We teamed up one year when there was a multi-sim expansion, building a secret cult temple under what is now Mornington Brewery in Academy of Industry.
Avariel Falcon: I remember Jimmy at Lovefest
Arik Metzger: Jimmy was the first one I recruited when I was promoting LoveFest in 2012.
Fianna Physt nods
Edward Pearse: His Waxworks has become a tourist attraction for Babbage and this Town Hall, built by Jimmy, is the longest standing in Babbage so far.
Darlingmonster Ember: I wondered about that
Edward Pearse: I didn’t know him as well as some people but he was a respected friend and a generous soul.
Ceejay Writer: I visit it often. Never grows old…… just like him.
Skusting Dagger: I have a bunch things from the Cuckoos adventure available for free at th Docks next to Ruby’s
Nathan Adored: did we lose the music? 0o
Ceejay Writer: Thank you Skusting.
Now playing: Vrouwenkoor Malle Babbe Women’s Choir of Haarlem – Prelude no. 20, “Funeral March”
Edward Pearse: He will be dearly missed.
Arik Metzger: Music stopped
Mr Tenk: He was keeping track of how long each town hall had stood
Edward Pearse: Sorry, that was my fault 🙂
Darlingmonster Ember: music back
Nathan Adored: yup, its back
Fianna Physt: He was changing tracks
Arik Metzger: Edward does well considering the event at hand
Janet Rhiadra: it is beautiful
Fianna Physt nods
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: It is difficult to type new stuff and dj at the same time
Edward Pearse: I would like to ask Loki Eliot to come up and say a few words
Loki Eliot: um, i have a few words written
Edward Pearse: Might need to get you a box 🙂
Nyx Malaspina smiles at Loki and listens
Loki Eliot: thanks 🙂
Loki Eliot: ok
Fianna Physt: Better
Loki Eliot: When I look back at my time in Second Life, those first lonely steps of anxiety into this virtual world in October 2005, I do not remember when or how we met. All I remember was that at some point not long after Jimmy was there.
Dickens: waves to Loki
Loki Eliot: Through all the craziness at the start as we tried to work out the why, the whats and the point of all this, Jimmy ended up by my side along with Myrtil and many others some of which are here right now.
Loki Eliot: His level head and calmness helped guide what we did, and he was loyal and kind to everyone without fault. You could count on Jimmy, and I counted on Jimmy many times.
Loki Eliot: Without Jimmy so many things in Babbage would not have turned out the way they did, the epic role-plays we did, the stories we wove. The Barrel races he won year after year before opting out of the races to let others have a chance.
Ceejay Writer: Those races!
Loki Eliot: We shared an interest in horror & Sci-Fi fiction, in movies, in history and it showed in how we collaborated. Through him I was introduced to H.P.Lovecraft which have inspired many of my projects since.
Zaida Gearbox: i became an urchin because of jimmy and myrtil
Loki Eliot: We are both kids at heart, and we found a new way to express that in a virtual world and even though a kid was his role here, he was a genuine soul.
Loki Eliot: That is to say Jimmy was playful, full of heart, never to serious, always wanting to please others, and to see his generosity you only have to look at the grand creation you stand within right now.
‘Fuzzbutt’ Fardoragh: I ate urchins because of Jimmy and Myrtle!
Skusting Dagger wonders if he should reveal his urchin alt
Zaida Gearbox: poopdeck!!!!!
Loki Eliot: We are the pioneers of socialising in digital space, we are the first generation to build a lifetime of memories in such a place, and Jimmy is without a doubt one of the greatest builders of some of the fondest memories i’ve had not just here in Second Life but in my actual life.
Skusting Dagger: SHHHH
Zaida Gearbox throws popcorn at fuzzbutt
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: ((skust. please. pleasee!))
Russell A. Firecrest arrives in the hopes of being in time to pay respects.
Zaida Gearbox: mr dagger that is the worst kept secret in babbage
Skusting Dagger: lol
Nathan Adored smiles.
Loki Eliot: I shall always be grateful and will never forget. Thank you my friend Jimmy.
Darlingmonster Ember: thank you Loki
Skusting Dagger: Cheers!
Liz Wilner dabs eyes with handkerchief
Gabrielle Riel Morningstar smiles
Avariel Falcon: ~ Yay! ~
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: GOONIES NEVE SAY DIE
Darlingmonster Ember: Huzzah!
Tepic Harlequin: GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!!!!
Beryl Strifeclaw purrs
Nyx Malaspina: hear hear
Oriana sniffles with a grin
Connor Bagshawe: well said… shouted
Janet Rhiadra: hear hear
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!!!!
Avariel Falcon: Thank you Loki
Edward Pearse: Arik
Zaida Gearbox cries quietly
Harperlass Resident: definitely having trouble keeping her lip from wobbling despite biting it
Janet Rhiadra: thank you loki
Edward Pearse: Your turn
Philip Underwood is wiping tears.
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: Loki: That was beautiful mate.
Arik Metzger: a bit of avi lag…
Loki Eliot: ´so good to see you back Dredd
Liz Wilner: welld one and beautifully said, Loki 🙂
Janet Rhiadra: I wish we could upload ourselves here
Gadget: A moving tribute Loki
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: bloody good to be back matey!
Arik Metzger: Thanks for having me on. Always take advantage of a chance to have me on 😉
Skusting Dagger: I can’t believe I remember all the things Loki talked about
Harperlass Resident: thank you Loki
Zaida Gearbox: skusting, you, breezy, elleon, and jimmy were the first people i met here
Skusting Dagger: Aww
Silas Merlin: Jimmy and Myrtil brought me here
Skusting Dagger: NIce
Arik Metzger: I first met Jimmy about 2 weeks into SL, I had already defined what and who I was to be, after my 2nd day in, discovering Innsmouth. And was quickly set on the idea of Lovecraft Festival (LoveFest in SL). Jimmy saw me driving a wagon I had commissioned to be built… the LoveFest Carnival Wagon… to promote the first Fest
Silas Merlin: I wish Myrtil were here today
Edward Pearse: I remember the wagon
Arik Metzger: I sized him quickly up, and a few weeks later discerned that Jimmy Branagh was the embodiment of Lovecraft’s spirit in SL
Arik Metzger: He shared with me many Lovecraft things… and took me somewhere that I strongly suspect perhaps only one other has been. To his private, personal sim place a friend had let him call his retreat.
Fianna Physt sighs and remembers working with him on the Lovecraft events.
Arik Metzger: It was full of everything ever made with Lovecraft’s theme. Things I had never seen, and many that will never be seen
Ceejay Writer: Oooooh.
Now playing: Vrouwenkoor Malle Babbe Women’s Choir of Haarlem – Prelude no. 20, “Funeral March”
Arik Metzger: In respect to Jimmy privacy, I did not keep a LM. I almost regret that now
Arik Metzger: Ia Cthulhu
Arik Metzger: beginning in 2014, Jimmy became our primary builder for LoveFest’s adventures. And never failed to awe and impress.
Arik Metzger: He has been a Council Member of Innsmouth since I first took possession to preserve the region
Arik Metzger: We are blessed at Innsmouth to have his “Colour Out of Space” scene, a large area, built originally in 2013 for LoveFest.
Arik Metzger: It will be at Innsmouth for all to enjoy, as long as I am in SL
Skusting Dagger: Cheers!
Janet Rhiadra: yayyyyy
Darlingmonster Ember: thank you Arik
Skusting Dagger: to that
Arik Metzger: Any wishing, please IM me and I will invite you to our sim group to keep informed as I release our tribute details tonight, for next Wednesday. Any friend of Jimmy’s is a Friend of Innsmouth
Janet Rhiadra: thanks Arik
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: fiend of innsmouth surely
Ceejay Writer: Would love a LM to his Innsmouth build.
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: secondeded
Darlingmonster Ember: yes please
Fianna Physt loves this song
Avariel Falcon: Thank you Arik
Liz Wilner: yes please
Janet Rhiadra: me too
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: aye, Thank you sir.
Skusting Dagger: Send one this way, too, please
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: but prepare for the sim to crumple under the numbers
Arik Metzger: As I was telling someone the other day, I suspected Jimmy was facing something in October, because he last RPed at my REtrl*Trek project then. But, soon after he last RPed, I had a personal disaster RL that set my mind to reeling. And, as I have said to a few, you’re not a good friend of Arik unless Arik has in good faith neglected you repeatedly 😦
Fianna Physt smirks “Yeah, maybe, but we still love you anyway Arik.”
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: RL always wins. as it should be.
Arik Metzger: and, should that scoundrel resurface, we have indeed made sure he gets sacrificed to Fuzzbutt, as Fuzzbutt’s first proper sacrifice.
Arik Metzger: Jimmy would apprecate that statement
Nathan Adored gets a goofy, lopsided smile.
Arik Metzger: Thank you for having me. I love the guy. I don’t use past tense, because he lives on in us
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: aye!
Drewski Northman: Hear hear
Liz Wilner: amen!
Darlingmonster Ember: here here!
Loki Eliot: 🙂
Janet Rhiadra: hear hear
Darlingmonster Ember smiles
Harperlass Resident: thank you Arik
Zaida Gearbox waves to breezy
Stereo Nacht slips through quietly, having been delayed by aformentioned RL.
Edward Pearse: OK, I am shutting down the music for a bit
Edward Pearse: Tepic will be taking over
Fianna Physt nods
Tepic Harlequin: evening all…
‘Fuzzbutt’ Fardoragh: Fellow KittyCatS!!!!
Loki Eliot: hi Tepic
Skusting Dagger: Will there be a full transcript of this available?
Harperlass Resident: Harper smiles at Fuzzbutt
Edward Pearse: I will try to get one together
Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood: Hello Tepic
Tepic Harlequin: i will be playing a bit of music i hope is appropriate to being ‘Lost at Sea’
Ceejay Writer: I’m saving it Edward, if that helps.
Skusting Dagger: Thanks
Tepic Harlequin: it’s in sounds, so yer may want ter turn them up…
Tepic Harlequin: and if it’s too quiet, cam in closer to me 🙂
Tepic Harlequin: will play three verses…
Hyper-Flute Composer Edition v3 (HUD1-Upper): Playing Score ‘Title : For Those in Peril on the Sea, by William Whiting, Transcribed by Tepic Harlequin’
Fianna Physt sounds up and hearing fine
Russell A. Firecrest: I sadly have to go again. My deepest condolences to everyone. Jimmy shall be missed.
Philip Underwood: This is stunning, I am mourning deeply for someone whose name I do not know, whose face I have not seen, and whose voice I have not heard. Jimmy and I have been friends since I first bought property here. What, 2012? And he and I would gossip a bit OOC
Silas Merlin waves to Russell
Ceejay Writer: Tepic plays beautifully.
Nathan Adored nods nods nods
Avariel Falcon: His life here was as real as his other life in the other world
Ceejay Writer pictures the music wafting out of the building, over the city, and out to sea…
Fianna Physt cries and nods
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: ((goddamit ceejay))
Nathan Adored gets all misty-eyed thinking about that.
Beryl Strifeclaw will miss Jimmy, they and Myrtil are how she ended up involved with Faire…and other stories here
Ceejay Writer: ((hugs fer Bob, just this once))
Zaida Gearbox keeps crying quietly
Philip Underwood has always loved this piece, pictures a fishing community in prayer during a storm hope for rescue.
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: Thank you Tepic
Arik Metzger: Will get those group invites out after a bit. Lag has shut down the function
Gadget: Bravo Tepic, bravo
Liz Wilner: beautiful, Tepic!
Connor Bagshawe: wonderful
Philip Underwood: Bravo Tepic
Ceejay Writer: In your own good time, Arik
Harperlass Resident: sniffling and bawling, thank you Tepic
Avariel Falcon: Thank you young Master Tepic
Skusting Dagger: Thank you!
Drewski Northman: Thank you, Tepic
Ceejay Writer: Well done, young sir.
Loki Eliot: thank youu tepic
Oriella Charik: Thank you Tepic
Tepic Harlequin: this is a sad time for us all, but let us remember the fun we had, the playing, jokes, together, and let that memory bring a smile to our lips…
Philip Underwood: Nice point Tepic. It’s what ceremonies like this are for.
Oriana nods
Edward Pearse: Thanks Tepic
Ceejay Writer: Indeed.
Stereo Nacht applauds softly the musician
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: Tepic. hells teeth mate.
Sophie: I’m sorry, but I must go. Farewell, Jimmy B.
Edward Pearse: Ceejay, you’re up
Now playing: London Philharmonic Orchestra – Wagner: Götterdämmerung– Siegfried’s Funeral March
Zaida Gearbox leans forward and hugs tepic from behind
Ceejay Writer: Not going to move, I’ll just trip over something. I have a short thing to say.
Ceejay Writer: Over the years, Jimmy spoke at the Aether Salon *eight* times. Clearly he had a lot of knowledge to impart to us.
June 2021 – Spiritualism!
April 2020 – Disposal!
June 2017 – Whitechapel!
May 2016 – Secret Societies!
April 2015 – Freaks!
April 2014 – Chirurgia!
March 2013 – Kinder!
January 2010 – Children!
Ceejay Writer: If you’d like to read the archival transcripts of his salons, follow this link, it will pull up all salons with the category “Jimmy Branagh” for your browsing convenience.
Connor Bagshawe: I’m reading through 13 years of messages from or mentioning Jimmy, so many memories
Darlingmonster Ember: ty CJ
Zaida Gearbox: thanks ceejay
Ceejay Writer: That’s all from me! Enjoy the transcripts, they show a mind with a vast amount of knowledge.
Connor Bagshawe: my keyboard caddy’s first Aether Salon was Jimmy and Myrtil presenting on Victorian children
Edward Pearse: Does anyone else want to say anything?
Connor Bagshawe: in 2010
Connor Bagshawe: I associate Jimmy with so many things outside of Babbage as well
Nathan Adored gets a goofy, lopsided smile.
Liz Wilner: Jimmy was so very kind…except when I tried to sneak in more than a one word title for a Salon poster…lol
Liz Wilner: I got zinged on that a few times…LOL
Ceejay Writer: Liz…. Jimmy was terrified of ME on those one word Salon titles!
Liz Wilner: lol Ceejay
Ceejay Writer: I took him to task! Told him to crack down on alla you. Then I hid behind him
Nathan Adored giggles and chortles
Connor Bagshawe: so many hours on the roof of Myrtil’s cabin in Hawkins Bay, Goony Island, must’ve been 2010 too, before Escapades
Edward Pearse: I wanted to add that while today is mostly about Jimmy
Edward Pearse: He’s “Lost at Sea”
Nathan Adored sighs.
Connor Bagshawe: did anyone else tour the Pandora roleplaying sims he was involved with after Avatar?
Edward Pearse: We’ve had others in the past we know have gone
Oriana there is hope, and i own a dive suit
Edward Pearse: Blackberry, Nix and a few others were able to say their farewells
Edward Pearse: Others we’re still waiting on
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: and we shall wait
Edward Pearse: Yelly Donut has been MIA for over a year
Gabrielle Riel Morningstar nods
Edward Pearse: And despite my best efforts I haven’t been able to contact Caesar Osterham since about 2015
Dreddpiratebob Streeter: oh hell
Edward Pearse: There’s a few bits and bobs around Babbage belonging to Denver Hax, who may be another
Ceejay Writer: Caesar’s eyesight was failing. It may be that he just can’t see this world any more.
Stereo Nacht mostly remembers him from my time in the Consulate, but he was always helpful and kind.
Beryl Strifeclaw: He was losing his vision…yes what Cee said
