RIP Lynn Willis

I’ve just heard that one of the founding fathers of D100 gaming has passed away, Lynn Willis who had a hand in a staggering chunk of Chaosium releases and was one of the driving forces behind the mighty Call of Cthulhu, went to the great gaming table in the beyond yesterday. Although I never knew the man except for his work on the Chaosium releases that shaped my adolescence/young adult years, the dedication and love he put into those books shines through and had a quiet but powerful influence on me.

I don’t think it was an accident I reached for my copy of Call of Cthulhu last night 🙂

    I didnt know Lynn personally either, but remember exchanging emails with him around the time Chaosium were publishing my first monograph. He was so patient, encouraging and generous with me the amateur writer. He was a truly wonderful chap.
