2016 does not relent and another legend leaves us.
It is with great sadness I report the passing of Joe Dever, whom many role playing enthusiasts will know as the principal author of the Lone Wolf series of Fighting Fantasy-style role playing books and the wolrd of Magnamund in which the adventures of Lone Wolf take place. He was only 60 years old.

To me personally, this is a very great loss, since he is one of the very few authors I consider myself to be a genuine fanboy of and the sum  his work, especially the Drakkarim, has influenced many an adventure I ran as the game master/dungeon master.


I was lucky enough to have met Joe Dever at the RPC in Cologne in 2013 and dedicated a podcast to him which I am sharing here again.

Joe Dever will be missed and I will miss him a lot.

Rest in peace, Sir!
