So, I've been reading here and there on the blogosphere that famed old-school D&D artist Dave Trampier has passed away. If this is true, then it's very unfortunate and sad news.
It's a hard blow for those of us immersed in the hobby, as the originators pass away. It makes us wonder about what effort we're exerting to help ensure the continued existence of roleplaying, does it not? Well, at least I know it makes me feel that way.
Rest in peace, Tramp. May you work for a joyful eternity on heavenly commissions, illustrating the games of the gods!
