The passing of Brad McQuaid this week sent shockwaves through the tight-knit — and still forming — Pantheon community. In addition to expressing condolences for Aradune’s family and sorrow over the visionary developer’s death, the community has decided to get together to remember him on a memorial livestream tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST.
“No one should have to go through pain alone,” the memorial’s organizer, BazgrimTV, said. “We invite all who have enjoyed his worlds to come reflect on his life and his creations, share your stories of how he has affected you, and lift each other up as we begin to heal as a community… so that we may look ahead, like he always did, to how we can carry on his legacy together.”
And speaking of that legacy, more than a few of Pantheon’s followers have vowed to increase their pledge in order to see McQuaid’s final project become a reality.
Community Manager Linda “Brasse” Carlton said that the team is pushing forward: “The entire team is devastated by this tragic loss. However, it is a team, fully committed to the passion project of Pantheon, which could never have been completed by one person. Brad’s vision has imbued and driven the heart of this game, and inhabits every aspect of its essence. His family has already given it’s blessing for the Pantheon family to carry on, and so it shall. The team is working on the upcoming video newsletter for November. Saddened but not diminished.”
