I'm afraid I have some very sad news. Ironhand, who is a close personal friend and the guy who recruited me into Pax, died suddenly this morning (Tuesday 12/19/17). He had been complaining of abdominal pain and went in to the hospital Saturday. I don't have any other details. Ironhand was very active in ESO and SWTOR before that, and an avid WoWS player, and a good contributor to the Pax and MSG web site funds.

His real name is Robert Eldridge, and he was an active miniatures wargamer, going to several conferences, frequent games at Hobbymasters in Raleigh NC and Hanger 18 in Cary, and even publishing a few books. He also distinguishably served his country in the Army. But most of all he was a good friend that I enjoyed gathering around a table with weekly at lunch, and occasionally for tabletop gaming.

I will miss you, bro. /salute

Wow, I'm so sorry to hear this... Although I haven't played ESO in several months, when I did play he was such a nice and helpful guy to play with. My condolences NCIceman. :(

I am so sorry to hear this, we in ESO had just heard from Ironhand last week.

I am still processing the news, my heart goes out too all Ionhand's family and friends, he will be missed. Ironhand was a major part of the community.

Posting this on a forum feels too detached, but my thoughts and prayers go out to you, his family and his friends.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know.

Thanks for letting us all know. My condolences to his family and friends. While I only knew him as a voice behind a microphone I always enjoyed playing with him. Sunday nights won't be the same anymore. He will be missed.

This is such sad news. My heart goes out to his family and friends. I can only repeat what Karsnik said. "Sunday nights wont be the same anymore"
You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.

My condolences to you and his family for this sudden passing. I remember him in SWTOR and ESO. He had a good character about him and helped people out in game.
