RIP Lynn Willis

Lynn Willis passed away Friday, January 18. Kenneth Hite notes that "Every Call of Cthulhu product you've ever loved from the first edition to 1999 exists because Lynn Willis made sure its text was coherent, made sure its gameplay was sound, and made sure it got to print."

I was drawn in to Call of Cthulhu and to finally gming in the 1990s, which means that a lot of what made me whatever kind of GM I am is due to him. I rarely used the system, but I fell in love with scenario after scenario and found a way to run many of them in whatever system I was using at any given time.

I am fairly sure I never met him. That loss is mine.
