Truly sad news. I enjoyed many of the games he produced.

Aww, damn.

Greg Stafford has just died. RIP
 
By the looks of it, Greg Stafford (of Chaosium and Runequest fame, to name just a couple of his works) has just died.

Greg Stafford was one of the elder statesmen of the games industry, and author of many timeless classics. There is a condolence thread at https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/8...olence-thread/

Rest in peace.

Greg was a legend. I'm glad to see others here felt the need to share the knowledge; I was about to, as well.

He will be missed by many...

His best known works include Pendragon, RuneQuest's & Hero Wars' Glorantha Setting, and the Prince Valliant RPG... but he was instrumental and a cofounder of Chaosium, which meant fingers in a lot of Chaosium's projects.

Plus, at least online, a damned nice guy who loved his fans.

Requiescet in pace.

A nice guy in person as well.

He was an institution at DunDraCon from the very beginning, and I've sat through a few of his seminars. He will be missed.

Truly a loss, between Greg and Marc, they carved out a whole part of my formative years. Condolences to Greg’s family and well wishes Marc for many more years.
