    I divide my time between RPGs, freeforms (theatrical live-action) and boardgames. In the latter role, I have been a playtester for Reiner Knizia for more than 25 years.
  1. I first met Greg Stafford at a GW Games Day in London in the early 1980s. I’d been playing the Games Workshop edition of RuneQuest for a while, and had acquired a copy of Nomad Gods, which he was kind enough to autograph for me. I could hardly get a coherent word out at the time, however he was patient and put me at my ease. I was not to know it at the time, but this was not the last time our paths would cross. My work would later take me to San Francisco where I was fortunate to be able to visit the Chaosium offices (I had written part of Call of Cthulhu supplement), and where I was welcomed by Greg and everyone there. Sandy Petersen introduced me to the concept of freeforms (theatrical roleplaying) and thus it was we brought Glorantha alive in ‘Home of the Bold’ at the first Convulsion convention. And our guest of honour was Greg… Over the years whenever and wherever I have run into Greg he was never less than sociable, interesting and interested. His fund of stories bottomless and wisdom boundless… The community of friends that Greg engendered through his vision and inspiration cannot be underestimated. I’m but one small example, but it was through playing the games that Greg brought into the world I have made enduring and fast friendships. Enough for a lifetime. For that, and all the games, I will forever be in Greg’s debt.
