Bob Bledsaw Dies

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.

  1. My father was a very good friend as well as a great father to me. His life passion was gaming and making others have a good time. I only hope his legacy is where it belongs in the gaming community as a creator of fun filled adventures, such as the invincible overlord.
    Missing him dearly, his son Bruce.

  3. Thanks for the note, Bruce, and my deepest sympathies for your loss. Bob created many amazing things in the earliest days of the RPG hobby, and I know thousands of players loved the Invincible Overlord material as much as I did. I have little doubt that he and his work will be remembered for decades to come.
