Presumed dead, due to his sudden, out-of-character disappearance.Sudden? I recall everything slowing down to a trickle on MBX, then him just disappearing. Granted, I wasn't paying that much attention to specific forumites back then.
There is even a tomb for him built in TLD.
Behind the MT throne room.
According to the logs on the internal board, pretty much active and involved with current issues to the last day, so it was sudden.
And yes, MT is Minas Tirith, go see him there and pay him a tribute.
