is the law of threes applicable to goons now or something. allahu akbar.
he forgot. rip
Was so hosed that he was chatting to dudes on mumble minutes before this happened. His last two messages were :

(2:40:22 PM) vile_rat: gently caress
(2:40:24 PM) vile_rat: gunfire

RIP Vile Rat. I hope you ride a dragon into valhalla or something.

(8:02:02 PM) directorbot: My people, I have greivous news. Vile Rat has been confirmed to be KIA in Benghazi; his family has been informed and the news is likely to break out on the wire services soon. Needless to say, we are in shock, have no words, and have nothing but sympathy for his family and children. I have known Vile Rat since 2006, he was one of the oldest of old-guard goons and one of the best and most effective diplomats this game has ever seen.

His family are in our thoughts and prayers.

all you need to know is that practicing imperialist Viletat possibly died on Sept 11th because of a protest of a film that insulted Mohammed. possibly the most D&D way to die.

he's up there in heaven with dan mitrione now

RIP Vilerat, fragged to death playing eve online in a grimy little Benghazi consulate. At least he died actively fighting for the dumb crap he believed in, probably more than I will be able to say.
wasn't vilerat an idiot center-right liberal that wholly endorsed us foreign policy? well, i guess the question is, was he a d&d mod since that's a tautology
they aren't naming him yet http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/09/11/cairo-embassy-protest.html

I will personally ruin the shit of anyone who decides to be a smartass in this thread.

With its fall, the city of Sirte was transformed from a potent image of Gaddafi's rule to the symbol of his gruesome end. Even as Gaddafi's body was being driven away, the drain where he was found was being immortalised in blue aerosol paint. On it, someone wrote: "The hiding place of the vile rat Gaddafi."

D&D moderator Vilerat, AKA Sean Smith, was killed in Benghazi, Libya serving his country with the US State Department. He was a friend and colleague and he will be dearly missed.

We do not know the situation regarding his family and can only imagine what they are going through. When it becomes appropriate we will do what we can to offer our condolences to his family.
already calls for blood on Sept 11 of all days.

Vilerat, AKA Sean Smith, AKA retarded cousin of Rudyard Kipling
aren't the rioting Salafis themselves kind of a false flag deal what with their funding from US-aligned Gulf monarchies and such?
maybe this is just his superhero creation story... like they take his body to a bunker and merge it with a robotic dragon exoskeleton and they are like behold draco-5, who will oversee our operations in liberated syria.
