February 19, 2020: The Passing Of RPG Legend Scott Palter

Scott Palter

Scott Palter, best known for his studio West End Games, passed away on Monday, February 17. Many knew him as a legend of the roleplaying and wargame world, producing seminal titles such as Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and the DC Universe Roleplaying Game. Growing up in the 90s, West End's Star Wars lines of RPG and miniature products were a constant source of inspiration; I wanted squads and squads of Stormtroopers to put on a home-made Endor map. 

Scott will be missed by many, and his impact on the gaming community will be remembered. Here's an interview with Scott in Pyramid from way back in 1999, concerning the "new West End Games" heading into the new millennium.
