I've had very little first-hand interaction with Hunter, perhaps only two or three messages, but his creation, CotI, has had a huge impact on my life.
It was here that I realised Traveller existed on the Internet, that I didn't have to play solo any more, and this site led to others, other games, other communications.

My life would be very different today without Hunter and CotI.

RIP Hunter. I'm sure Andrew has a table waiting for you.

May the Final Jump take him to places of wonder and amazement.
I like my Traveller like the women I unfortunately usually date: Cold, Harsh, and Full of Drama.

I corresponded a little with Hunter when T20 was in the works, and was really pleased when he was able to bring it to fruition. He was always a gentleman, attentive and generous. Our community is richer due to his enormous contribution.

Thank you for all your work on Traveller, Hunter, both the very visible - like T20 and this very list - and all the behind-the-scenes work too.

RIP Hunter.

That was very sad news.
He will be missed.

There were some parts of T20 that I thought was really good.

Hunter gave me permission to place the T20 Ley sector on my website:
The Zhodani Base - Amber Zone - Facebook

Like Icosahedron above - Hunter's creation CotI made me aware that Traveller still exists and brought me in touch with a lot of other fans around the whole world. With this, he influenced my life quite heavily and made it possible for me to start Travelling again, with old and new friends.

RIP Hunter

I didn't know Hunter but I really love this site.

RIP Hunter, and Thank You.
