February 16, 2017: Loren Wiseman
We learned today that Loren Wiseman had passed away, apparently from heart failure.
Loren was one of game design's earliest "greats." He was a founder of Game Designers Workshop and a co-creator of Traveller, the science-fiction roleplaying game that set the standard for all the others. He was also a good friend.
He was inducted into the Origins Hall of Fame in 2003.
Loren is depicted, along with the late Mike Ford, on the INWO "Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow" card.
He'll be missed.
