My disabled son - ‘the nobleman, the philanderer, the detective’

Edit: Warning this story has been knon to cause some readers’ eyes to start leaking.

I am probably about 5 years to late to this party but i have just read this very moving story about Mats ‘Ibelin’ Steen on the BBC news website and I thought that amongst the bickering of GD it would be nice to be reminded that whatever else, WoW unites us more than it divides us.

(Annoyingly I could link a website yesterday but now I am not allowed, although I think it might be because I need to be level 3 for BBC links)

My disabled son - ‘the nobleman, the philanderer, the detective’

This was a truly powerful and emotional read that I was not in any way prepared for. Thank you so much for sharing this article with us.

In our day-to-day routines it can be easy to overlook the positive ways in which World of Warcraft brings together people of many walks of life from all over the globe - and the lasting bonds of friendship (and sometimes even more) it can form.

I hope Mats is resting peacefully, and my belated condolences to his family and guild.
