Like many, if not most others on here, Mr. Stafford's work has been a very large part of my life. Upon the discovery of rpg's in general, it wasn't long till I discovered RQ and CoC. To this day, I still play CoC and RQ and have introduced countless players over the last nearly 40 years, including my youngest. She is now running her own CoC campaigns and she's reading up on Glorantha to start an RQ campaign. I've run RQ (from RQII on up!) in the mountains of Bosnia, the valleys of Kosovo, above the tree line in the Arctic Circle and all across North America.
My family's sincere condolences to Mr. Stafford's family and friends. He will be missed, but his presence will certainly continue to be felt at tables around the globe.
