I can't even imagine what pain his mum must be going through now. Really hope that she and the rest of the family pulls through this.

RIP Steel. I don't care how cheesy this sounds and how little of a right I have to say this having never interacted with you, but your spirit will definitely live on.

Damn.

I mean, I know my only real interaction with him wasn't all that nice or even significant in the grand scheme of things... but even so, I feel compelled to log on to here for the first time in ages and post my condolences, even if I don't think the rest of the people here know me or what I'm talking about.

RIP, Steel.
welp

Like many of you, the possibility of Steel dying never even crossed my mind. This doesn't even make sense!
I know it's a naive viewpoint or whatever but cancer just doesn't kill people in real life. People die of cancer in movies and tv shows as part of the character development for the young kid soon-to-be superstar. How the hell does Steel die of cancer?
This is fucking surreal. Fuck everything. He was the best guy, and he was taken away. I wanted to meet him one day.

RIP Steel :(
don't mind me, just postin' after a few brewskies

I'm so speechless right now. I just heard about this and this is so horrible. I know there are people here who were a lot closer to Steel than I was but he was still a good friend and I respected him a lot. I just can't really believe that he's gone now. It's just so unreal and even though I obviously knew that he might not survive but I also thought that this is Steel we're talking about and there's no way he could go like this. Right now I just feel hollow and sad. :( He was such an important and interesting person and he really, REALLY made GW into that place you'll want to visit again and again. We argued over the smallest things and sometimes his way of doing things irritated me and caused me trouble but I also learned a lot from all that and he was just such a great guy to have around. He was funny, intelligent and clever, he always had something good to say. You'd always look forward to what he's gonna do next. It's not really reassuring after such a loss but we'll definitely remember Steel for many years to come and I'm going to miss him. :(

My deepest condolences to Steel's family and his friends.

Exactly, he is definitely one of the our more unique, interesting and intelligent members among RPGNERDS. There's about three people left who post here that I'd put in the same category. R.I.P

I always considered Steel a friend, and I'd like to think he considered me one as well.  I greatly admired him and looked up to him a lot.  He made me a better person in many ways.  I only wish that I could have known him better.  Rest in peace, my friend.

RIP Amark. My condolences to his family :(​. This was shocking after reading the last 90 pages or so. Its a bit funny how one man can make such a huge impact around him. I know some of us didn't know steel as much as others, but every member on gw I bet can remember this awesome person. What everyones said here is true. He didn't give a fuck and told it like how it was. Im going to miss his posts and miss the thought of Amark. Rest in Peace.

As a most of the time lurker, it really does effect you even if I didn't know him at a personal level. I've been around to see as personalities develop and grow as time passes, and to see one of our own generations pass away at such an age is never something you can bare. I always remember that little gif of him in the hat going around in circles, I still have it saved somewhere... I really do hope that his family will not suffer anymore :/

Oh my God, I should visit GW more often, Steel has passed away??? I am truly saddened to hear that, he was such a great guy. I wish I had a chance to wish him well. Damn, RIP Steel :(

man like steel started the gw troudabours and like that is one of the main reasons that i'm like "hey, i can write songs now!"  that's a pretty significant influence on my life to say the least.  its amazing all the small ways that somebody can change your life.

I didn't know Steel almost at all, just the occasional random post here and there or something Paragon would tell me he did back in the day. In my brief time(s) on the community writing staff, I came upon some stuff he had been working on about going to college. Needless to say, even those little tidbits of knowledge he had laid out were helpful to a confused high-school dropout trying to figure out what the fuck to do with his life. The guy I saw in those comparatively scant words was a brilliant mind who spoke what he felt and had the rhetoric to back his convictions.

I didn't know Steel like you guys did, and hearing of his demise and reading your responses makes me feel envious and sad that I did not.

Man, watching those old videos of steel really hit me. It was nice to see him in good health joking around, but it also made me very sad knowing how things turned out for him. I realized that Steel had a hand in just about everything I like about this forum and I remember his great topics he used to create and I'm going to really miss not seeing them anymore.

I kept thinking about him today and thinking how unfair it is that this happened. I even cried a bit which I found strange considering I didn't know him very well. This really affected me and I'm glad I was at least able to communicate with him a little while he was around.

I wouldn't have started writing music without the influence of troubs making me seek out and purchase the kit to actually record. I had no idea it was him who started it as I only date back to 2006 here. It is significant, being able to do that.
