    Sad news, it has been announced that Greg Stafford the creator of Runequest and Pendragon as well as the founder and one of the main driving forces behind Chaosium has died.

    Chaosium and Gregs games were what bought me into this wonderful hobby, I will be mourning his passing tonight.



    Oh No … Greg was one of the best  and true geniuses of the hobby. Both Runequest  ( the first RPG I ever played) and Pendragon are two of the best games I ever layed


    RIP Greg  You will be missed



    This is some truly sad news. My condolences to his family.



    Very sad. I loved both games and feel they never quite got the widescale attention they deserved. Thank you Mr Stafford, you were gifted and innovative and added much joy to many people’s lives.



    Torros is right,

    Greg was the inventor and behind the best RPGs ever written.  No exception.  Runequest and Pendaragon.  He also, I believe, gave the ‘green light’ for my all time favourite, for a host of wrong reasons, ‘Call of Cthulhu’.

    He went through a lot, as far as I know, and lost Chaosium, was ever a company more aptly named, and then regained it.

    I loved that fact that he linked all his games to his love of philosophy and things deeper than most designers appear have interest in.

    miserere animae tuae sit tibi Deus
