Hi All,

At the end of April our Producer, Nathvaan was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Nathvaan not only is a valued member of our staffing team, but he is a valued member of our Armageddon community. He's been playing the game since 1997 and some of you will have met him at various APM's in Chicago, Raleigh and at the Atlanta DragonCon's.

Nathvaan is undergoing an aggressive chemotherapy regime and spending a lot of time in bed during his recovery. He is currently fundraising towards purchasing a new bed that will make that recovery easier. Armageddon Staff have already donated to the cause but I thought that players may wish the opportunity to donate also.

I have included here a link so that you can read Nathvaan's (Keith) story yourself, and donate should you wish to. Of if you would like to wish him well, please feel free to do so here also.

It's going to be a long road, one that will and has caused me to not be able to do as much as I would like to for the game.  But when I am able to focus again on the game and not beating this second round of cancer (first one was colon cancer) I am -sure- I'll be knocking out some kick ass code in short order.

First things first though!

Thanks again!

Ha!  Actually wearing a blue shirt with this on it right now,  I couldn't agree more!

... it's almost like it's the shirt in the photograph on the site. ... I actually didn't realize that until this second, I promise I'm not stalking you.

I know, I am just.... well, stunned really.   I'll still need new bedding (downsizing to a queen) so if you all feel like funding some please do.  But, wow.

(Also us bald guys have to stick together. I hope you are not one of us very soon!)

Thanks!  The treatment still has at least 5 months left so I don't think I'll be leaving the bald club anytime soon but hopefully sometime toward the end of the year.

Also, thank you for the donation, it is very, very much appreciated!

Well, I just found out that the model I was looking to get may go off sale like today or tomorrow so feel free to donate if you want.  I'll get the best comfy bed whatever is donated will cover.  It will all go towards the bed! =)

Woah, didn't even know this was happening until it got funded.  Way to go, everyone!

Nathvaan, you have my utmost support.  I will greatly enjoy eating popcorn and drinking beer as I watch you kick cancer's ass like Stallone in one of those movies where he wears a headband.

You got this, buddy.
Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.
