The Legacy of Pern

Anne McCaffrey has died. It's a sad day for the science fiction and fantasy community. She was a powerhouse of the genre, helping to pave the way for generations of women creators after her. She also created some very popular worlds, including the Dragonriders of Pern.

I started playing Pern rpgs online in MOOs in 1997, when I was in college. Through those games, I met some of my closest friends, friends I now consider family. I cannot thank Anne enough for not only creating that world, but for encouraging people to populate it themselves, through rpgs like I played, or cosplay.

I probably can't finish these tonight, but since I was in a Pern mood, reminiscing, I went back and looked at some old log files, and sketched the first two characters I played at Dragonsfire MOO.

Zephre, rider of green Miyoth )

I played some other great characters, some of whom I've already drawn. Perhaps one day I'll have a whole portfolio of alter egos from Pern.

Seriously, Dragonsfire MOO people (you know who you are), I am so so so thankful everyday to have you in my life, even long-distance. You've all made a big difference, and I'm really happy that we all liked Anne's world so much we tried to live in it.

Fly high and free, Anne. Thanks.
