Virtual Funeral Held By Friends of MMO Player
The event on the Zalera server began in the city of Ul'dah with people gathering at night, server time, many dressing in black for the memorial service. They then walked over a half hour, the night giving way to day as the players crossed different areas along bridges and roads. They would travel to a place known as the Guardian Tree, considered a holy location in the game.
Leafelda Moonchild, one of the players who organized the event, would say, "When I made the post on Facebook, I didn't expect anyone to actually show up. I made the post so that those that may have known her would be informed. The fact that so many people showed up, not only from Zalera but from other servers, really took me by surprise."
Someone named Kealmir made a video for Youtube.

I watched the video silently, all the way through. While I kind of anticipated some verbal memorial, it was probably better that it was visual chat only. Then I lit a candle for all the departed. May they find peace.ReplyDelete
