J Eric Holmes

I just read on some other blogs that John Eric Holmes, writer of the Blue Book Basic edition of D&D, has passed away. For some reason this bothers me more than the passing of any of the other icons of D&D. Maybe it is because his book was my introduction to the game. I still have fond memories of it though the book itself disappeared years ago.

  1. I also began my role playing career with the Holmes basic set. I have owned two copies of the book and am now happy to have this rule set in pdf format. I believe I like Labyrinth Lord because I started by fantasy role playing with the basic edition.
