James Mishler reports that Bob Bledsaw, founder of the Judges Guild, died in the morning of Saturday, April 19. He passed away in his home in Decatur, Illinois, after a battle with cancer. The Judges Guild site has an excellent obituary.
I never met Bob, but I loved his work. He published the first-ever third-party adventures for Dungeons & Dragons, and his City State of the Invincible Overlord is one of the all-time classic D&D campaigns. He will be sorely missed.
