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

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

Default 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.

https://www.chaosium.com/blogvale-gr...ord-1948-2018/

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.
