One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.

I first subscribed to Dragon magazine in part because of EGG's regular "New from the Flanaess" articles (the other half was Moore's articles on the demi-humans). Of course, those articles stopped, largely because he had a D&D cartoon and movie to produce. How did that work out?
I'm not saying he was a bad guy, but can we stop treating him like he was a cross between George Washington and Abraham Lincoln?

Third, a thread on a topic such as this would be worth something if the person putting forth the information actually knew exactly what they were talking about because they were personally involved, rather than just being emotionally invested.
Rather than unleash a thread based on flaming, and which surely will continue on as such, thread closed. _________________ - Moderator/Admin (in some areas)/Member -
