On October 11th of 2018 Greg Stafford, founder of Chaosium, creator of Glorantha, and driving force for one of the best settings in gaming history was in a sweat lodge at his home in Arcata, CA when his body left on a path out of this world. It was quick and painless, and he died seeking his spiritual truth.

I first discovered RQ in late 1977 early 1978. Since then I have played it thousands of hours. I have guided heroes and near-do-wells into and out of dangers and historical events in Glorantha. I met my wife because of RQ, and have been married 30 years in a few weeks. Made friends, lost friends, and lived a life full of Chaosium. To say I owe Greg is an understatement. While I would have still been a gamer, and would have had a life free of D&D, he made it sooooo much easier and better.

I hope the lodge had the path he was seeking when he walked on ahead of us. We all die, we will all die, it is a good thing to die well, it is a better thing to live well. Greg did the better thing, I think.

In my culture we don’t say goodbye (I am Cherokee), we say, “I will talk with you when I get there.” But I would also like to add, “Thanks for all the clacks.”

A condolence thread has been set up at BRP Central.
