Brothers, Sisters and the wider mercenary community, it has been brought to my attention that two weekends ago Tai fell for the final time. Unsurprisingly in typical Tai fashion, this news arrived late.

I am uncertain of the exact details of his deaths, I knew that he was going on a mission without any other Knights present, I did warn him that without his Brothers he wouldnt be as tough.
I still remember the look in his eye when I told him that he was the only Knight on that particular mission... It was nearly the same as when I told him that the Ivory Armour spell doesnt work against Swords of Power...

I have heard stories of the various ways he put his life on the line over the course of the mission - of course Tai could only die fighting great threats which sought to destroy everything we know and love.
From the 6 minutes 53 seconds he survived in hell - Only a person like Tai would walk in to a room knowing that he is seriously outmatch by the fiends that were waiting in the shadows, giggling over what they were about to do. It takes true character and strength to put yourself in this position, knowing you are unlikely to survive something something so brutal.

Or the numerous times he stood, arms flailing, swords a blur as he was frantically parrying blows trying to fight off hordes of creatures, trying to protect those he was travelling with - Little did he know that he was the only person not flying...

However the stories arent just of the ways he died, but those of how he stood strong, unmoving in the face of brutality, with that little angelic grin on his face.
From the numerous times he has fought against demons, angels, bandits, weird Gods from other planes, world eaters and most dangerously, Gnomes.
To the Golden Ghoul Lords all 6 of which he gave the furious chain of holy uppercuts.

He did a great job as Lord Knight for 2 years, but now he is back to his old sidekick ways. He wont be gone for long, he will return, just who knows as what? Some snake / wyrm creature, an angle or a puppet?

There will be many festivities in honour of Tai. The streets will be flowing with Schnizzle and we shall sleep in to well after mid day!

The world is a worse place without you, come back to us, my friend.

He'll be back before you know it.

Tai's late to a lot of things, but he wouldn't miss his own wedding.

If everyone could possibly stop dying, I'd enormously appreciate it.

I do hope you're right, Peronel.

This is indeed sad news but I trust that he will turn on the wheel and come back to us soon.

I liked Tai and I hope to see him on a mercenary mission sooner rather than later.

Snake boy, not again!

Another prophet turns on the wheel doing the most dangerous of things

I will send word to the Barony of Tarneth to let them know a defender has fallen again.
