I feel like somebody died.

Same here. Perhaps it was appropriate that after reading the FASA Press Release, I heard, in the distance, Amazing Grace on live bagpipes...Fading into a friend's stream of the end theme of Braveheart. A company that helped me make friends, discover and, after crossing the paths of fate and the Grim Reaper whilst narrowly avoiding the latter's blade, rediscover myself through endless games of Shadowrun, and reignite my passion for stories...gone. Never thought I would, but even now I'm shedding a small tear. It's been a hell of a ride, folks. From my first introduction to FASA through Battletech and stories of Great Houses clashing in a far future reminiscent of stories of medieval kings and knights, to my long joyride with Shadowrun, it's been great.
