Greg Stafford passed away. This saddens me. I have never met or interacted with the man or played Runequest or any of the other games derived from it. However, he holds a special place in my gaming heart. The first RPG I played with my now 18 year old son was Prince Valiant, written by Stafford. I tracked down a used copy about 12 years ago because I had heard it was a good introductory game for kids. Mr. Stafford, through his game, created special memories for my son and me and for that I thank him.
