According to Steve Perrin, Steve Henderson passed away from a massive stroke this morning, leaving behind his wife Gigi and their young son Alexander. I didn’t know Steve at all, but we had many mutual friends.
Steve co-authored RuneQuest (the original Glorantha roleplaying game) and Worlds of Wonder (the first universal roleplaying game) along with Steve Perrin, Lynn Willis, and Greg Stafford. He helped start the Society for Creative Anachronism. He also ran the dealers’ room at DunDraCon for the past decade or so.
So here’s to one of the greats, who was taken from us too soon. He contributed more to the adventure gaming hobby than most will ever know, but his influence will be felt for decades to come.
