Whatever happened to........

Post by Torry » 26 Mar 2018 01:58

Hi Guys

Just played and reviewed my 20th level set this month and on reading the reviews for these old names kept popping up from the past. Where are they now? Has anyone heard from;

Palo
Kristina
Sash
Bjorkraider
Dimpfelmoser
bERT
Doug E
Bex
Litepulsar
The Vagrant
Gunilla

I realize that real life keeps getting in the way of TR and I am not one to talk being away from this for a good 12 years or more but I cannot help but wonder how these guys are and what they are doing today. Many of them I met at the Cleveland and London Tombfests in 2004 and 2005. The Vagrant gave us a metal Lighthouse garden piece that still resides at the front of our home today and we spent two nights with Bex and Litepulsar in Bex's miners cottage in Derby. Then Gunilla and Bjork at the London Tombfest (amongst a whole heap of other TR royalty).

Hi.

Kristina decided she didn"t have time for this (that was a while ago already).

I think I saw Sash sometime, not too long ago, but I could be wrong.

Bjork doen't appear very often but I think he's there.

bERT left angrily eons ago (don't even remember what about).

I also think I saw Gunilla sometime ago...

I don't know about the rest.

Thanks Torry and vimmers for the info on Bex! I can see why she stopped Lara's Home, she is too talented!

I miss Angel, I still have her Christmas ornament she sent me years ago.

Thanks Vimmers.

The Vagrant used to build TR1 and TR2 levels years before the TRLE was released and he used to have a website but that is gone now too. Then there was Turbo Pascal who wrote the unofficial level editor way back when, which I used to compile all the (at that time) unofficial levels into a playable package but I cannot find his website anymore either. So much talent now lost to us *sigh*.

Suzanne, you remember Vagrant right? He came to the Cleveland Tombfest.

I connect with Bex occasionally,
also Angel,
and once in a blue moon with Magnus, he's still talented with his artwork.
bERT contacted me a few years ago, then went away again.
Spoke with Joanna (Nefertar) a few weeks ago.

Bjorkraider is still around and active,and has been Gerty's houseguest once or twice.

Dimpf was hugely active in trle.net for a few years until around 2005'ish. We met up a few times;but then life moved on for him - and her name wasn't Lara :)

Sash has made appearances once or twice;but that's about all.

As for Kristina... :lipsealed:

Of course you don't have to be with Lara to be here. All it takes is a little resilience in explaining what things are actually about. :)

There was a nice, talented builder from the US that I remember from ages ago (don't remember his name). He also left because he was religious and was getting married. I don't know, people make their choices (or not).

That would be Loren Golden, known here as Idealist, builder of Tomb Raider Peru and an early BtB level. I believe he's now in full-time ministry while raising a family. He hasn't visited here for many years, although I tried to reach him recently with a PM.

Yes, he was. Really nice person and great builder who tried to inspire me into building (and failed at that, lol). :)

Well, if that was the case you've got a better memory than I. At least I don't remember that part. Still he had great potential and could have persisted. Oh well... I just hope he's doing great (and didn't vote Trump, lol). Hey Phil, if he ever gets back to you tell him I said hi. :)
