Greg Stafford Gen ConThe shock and grief the Chaosium family felt at the news of the passing of our beloved and revered company founder, Greg Stafford, cannot be measured. Greg died yesterday in his sweat lodge at his home in Arcata, CA. Mercifully, his passing was painless and quick. He died as he lived, on a spiritual quest of enlightenment.
Wow, great story! While I'm sure it wasn't the first, I remember picking up one of the first Champions books at Asgard 1981 in Atlanta, GA. I loved that book, though I'll admit it was so worn due to play it probably wouldn't be worth much. It got stolen (along with much of my gaming collection) by an ex-roommate while I was in the hospital after my car accident that blinded me. Same with my Call of Cthulhu 1E rulebook and sourcebook. <sigh>
Funny how some of the best games seem to drift away from you, one way or another?
