    I guess it's time to leave something here.


    I miss that unseen smile
    the silent voice that cared so
    the reassuring hand I never felt
    on my weary shoulder

    Revisiting past battles
    it's just not the same
    I want to chase your horses into the trees again
    and chat after, til the morning's light

    I miss that friend I'd never met
    and yet, felt closer to than my own blood
    "Hello ... how are you doing?"

    Ok m8, but I'd be better if you were still here.


    ***

    Peace, brother, and thank you. You will be remembered.
    Be intent on loyalty
    While others aspire to perform meritorious services
    Concentrate on purity of intent
    While those around you are beset by egoism

    I was wondering what happened to that plan about re-naming the Entrance Hall/The Guild's main page after Tosa?

    I had to come back and finally pay my respects. I still don't know what to think about an internet without Tosa. I've interacted with very few sites beyond the Org, and for most of my internet life I was bumbling around here, acting like the idiot I am. I never realized until I started pushing out into other fora how lucky I was to have an admin like Tosa. He was Buddha, and I mean that in the least trite manner possible. He was the nicest, most even-tempered person I've ever encountered on the internet so far.

    Rest in peace.

    Just a quick addendum, I first found out about this in May, but I had no idea what to say. I tried hanging around for a bit, but I was afraid to say anything about what happened. I feel like I've been avoiding the death of a father for a while now. I just had to come back and face facts. I'm sorry that I didn't say anything as soon as I found about this.

    I just heard, ashamed that it took me so long to learn of this. I'm at a loss for words. I didn't know Tosa very well casually, but anytime I had a problem with the site or a question, he was always there and took time out of his day to help me. He was not only a model administrator, but a model person as well. The .Org won't be the same without him. We miss you, buddy. RIP.

    First time browsing through the .Org in a while, and I am deeply saddened at this tragedy.

    But alas, all anyone can do after one passes is remember the good. Tosa was a fantastic moderator, and an even better person. I wish his family my somewhat belated condolences.

    6 months later, we're still paying respects and honoring him.

    I wish he could have somehow seen this thread before he went. It's touching to me how he is not forgotten in the slightest.

    What the heck? :( Very sad news.
    Rest in Peace, Tosa.
    I remember our conversations and encounters well... ever since Shogun:Total War. Long ago I stopped playing, but I retain fond memories of those who participated on the old site. It has always brought me comfort to see those few remaining names when I come back to visit.
    It is a tribute to your kindness that a year later people still feel compelled to post our memories of you.
    We are honored by those who know us, and you lent yours to all of us.

    Tosa was always a very kind guy. Very pleasant to talk to. I was always surprised to receive comments or messages from TosaInu. I just assumed a guy as busy as he must be wouldn't have the time to do all the things he actually did. And if he didn't, I wouldn't have held it against him. But he did!

    It's sad to hear he's gone when he had been so helpful, polite, and encouraging. The Org must have been a special place to him and he certainly made it a special place.

    You'll be dearly missed Tosa. We should all do our best to carry on your tradition and make the Org the best it can be.

    Rest in peace Tosa.

    I was away for a long time, and just recently reinstalled STW (the original). I came over here to check on things and found that my old login was still good. That reminded me of Tosa...

    Several years ago, I was once again trying to get some time set aside for gaming. I had been very active in STW MP in the early-ish days, and had even contributed some stories and some maps. In doing that, I had leaned on Tosa's knowledge more than once, to be sure! That, and we had been on the battlefield together in MP games... seems like Totomi was often the preferred location! Anyway, we certainly interacted, but in no way was I ever one of the "heavy-hitters" at the Org, and when I became too busy to play anymore I assumed I would be quickly forgotten.

    So, when I came back a few years ago and had trouble with my old login, Tosa was (naturally) who I contacted to see what could be done. I was amazed at how quickly he got back to me, and even more amazed that he actually remembered me! He recalled my map packs, and remembered some of my Takeda story, and was more than happy to re-establish my old login (it had been "retired" due to inactivity). It was one of those things that you never expect to work out, and when it does work out, you find yourself thinking there may just be hope for humanity after all...

    Tosa was one of the good guys. I was once again thrilled today to find my old login still works (thanks again, Tosa!)... and then I was immediately saddened to learn that he was no longer with us. I realize it has been about a year, but if condolences are still being passed to his family, please add mine.

    Ja Mata, Tosa. You are sorely missed.

    For Tooske,


    Het werd ochtend.
    zijn we uitgevochten, vroeg de man.
    wij zijn uitgevochten, antwoordde de engel
    en hij tilde de man op, hield hem tegen het licht en zei:
    je bent doorzichtig, nu.
    Laat me maar los zei de man
    en de engel knikte en liet hem los.

    Verdriet past in geen enkel woord,
    voor tranen veel te groot;
    het raakt je diep in je hart en ziel
    en maakt iets kostbaars dood.

    De droom is weg, voorbij, voorgoed
    't is donker om je heen;
    de eenzaamheid, een groot zwart gat,
    je voelt je zo alleen

    Je vraagt je af: "ach waarom ik;
    waarom gebeurt het mij?"
    Maar wie geeft antwoord op die vraag....
    Er past geen antwoord bij.

    Er is een oud verhaal dat zegt
    hoe midden iin de nacht
    in duisternis geworsteld werd,
    Gods engel op je wacht

    Wie vechten wil, komt er doorheen
    de wond groeit langzaam dicht;
    de nacht laat wel zijn sporen na,
    maar 's morgens wordt het licht!

    I have been absent from this forum for a very long time, I feel bad not knowing that he'd passed away. He is the reason this community exists and will never be forgotten. I was never close to him, but look back to the times when he assisted me. He welcomed the idea of a profile competition and even implemented a profile badge for use under the official award system, which winners of the 2008 and 2009 competition went on to receive. He was simply very kind and happy to assist an insignificant member like me, despite being so very busy himself.

    I regret being so late in posting this, but may you continue to Rest In Peace, TosaInu.

    This man, for me, was the entry to web communities.

    Over all my years on the internet, this is the place that stuck. He guided the org. with a calm but reassuring hand. From what I saw, he took most of the burden of running things on himself, but yet had time to gently sway the opinions in crucial matters.

    I have always been most impressed by this man. His presence here often having had the effect of a cold hand against a fevered skin...

    Sorry for posting so late... I was gone when he died, and since I came back I have been... I dont know... Unsure how to respond? I never met the guy. Neither has most people here, if any? But DAMN he left an impact on us all.
