    Default Get Well Wishes for the Giant

    Hi

    Just wanted to start a thread for all the 'get better soon' thoughts for Rich. From the post in the news thread, it sounds like he'll be all right.

    But we're all praying and pulling for him anyway. So get better soon.
    I’ve known people who play chess like this. They can’t think their way to a checkmate, so they spend their time trying to clear the board of the little pieces. This eventually reduces the game to a simplicity they can grasp, and they’re happy. The perfect war is a fool’s mate.

    Glass in the drawing hand is bad. Hope Mr. Burlew doesn't have any lasting issues from this, and now an awkward speedy recovery wish from me. *wishes*

    Get your rest, listen to your doctor(s) and heal up well. We'll see if we can ring up a cleric, ideally one with the healing domain.

    Take the time to heal right, I'll wait for the story from a healthy Giant.

    So the song runs on, with shift and change,
    Through the years that have no name,
    And the late notes soar to a higher range,
    But the theme is still the same.
    Man's battle-cry and the guns' reply
    Blend in with the old, old rhyme
    That was traced in the score of the strata marks
    While millenniums winked like campfire sparks
    Down the winds of unguessed time.

    Take all the time you need, Rich. Your health and wellbeing is far more important than the strip or the kickstarter work.

    Hoping you a fully and speedy recovery (and for the need for painkillers to disappear pretty quickly too).

    Oh dear. Poor Rich! Sounds painful.

    Glad to know the doctor says there will be a full recovery. I suppose not knowing how long it will take is stressful, though. May it be sooner rather than later!

    Anyway, thank you Mrs. Giant for giving us this information. Make sure to knock some sense into him if he gets any ridiculous ideas like "resume work before recovering enough."

    Take care of each other and get well soon.

    Giant,

    Sorry to hear about your injury. I imagine it's frustrating as well as painful: everyday life is much harder when one hand is out of commission. I hope you heal soon, and completely.

    Thanks for a fun comic, for your insights on games, and for creating a place for this forum. You've made the world a little bit more fun and friendly, and that's a pretty amazing feat.

    Take care.

    To the Giant,

    My best wishes for a speedy recovery. You've created both a wonderful comic and an amazing place for all the gamers and nerds on the Internet to hang out, and I'm so glad that I found this place. For my part, I'll wait as long as necessary and I hope you do everything to make sure your health is your first priority.

    Take care of yourself, Rich, and I'll add you to the prayers we say with my daughter every night.

    And don't think of it as a maddening inconvenience; think of it as an opportunity to learn to use a mouse -- and everything else -- with your left hand. Or right hand if you are a lefty, like me.

    Which reminds me -- my sister got me a card one time that said: "Everybody is born left-handed. You turn right-handed when you commit your first sin."

    Best possible wish would be from a 17th+ level wizard for:
    Remove injuries and afflictions. A single wish can aid one creature per caster level, and all subjects are cured of the same kind of affliction. For example, you could heal all the damage you and your companions have taken, or remove all poison effects from everyone in the party, but not do both with the same wish. A wish can never restore the experience point loss from casting a spell or the level or Constitution loss from being raised from the dead.
    Hope he gets well all the same though.

    How many Aid Another Schenanigans can we pull off to assist with a Heal Check to speed up the recovery?

    Seriously though, hope you feel better, Mr. The Giant!

    First of all thank you for all the hard work and attention you have given us, your fans. We know and understand that no matter how awesome one's work is, health should be the first priority. While it will be difficult to wait, we (or at least I) will wait patiently for your recovery.

    And toward that end, you may want to look into somatic-based techniques such as Feldenkrais or (Hanna) Somatics. They can be a great adjunct to traditional Physical Therapy.

    Good luck,
