Kim Mohan's wife Pam reported that he died this morning. He was a giant in the field of tabletop roleplaying games, an amazing designer, writer, and editor, and a good friend too.

Looking up his Wikipedia entry, I realized that he was one of the huge cadre of game industry people who went to @Beloit_College, and he even spent 9 years as a writer for my hometown paper, the @BDNConnection.

I worked on a few projects with Kim at New Infinities (the company Gary Gygax founded after he was removed from TSR). I had the pleasure of working alongside him on D&D books at TSR and
@Wizards_DnD after that, although rarely directly.

Whenever I saw him, though, he always had a wry smile and a kind word. D&D wouldn't be as amazing as it is now without his steady editorial hand guiding it for so many years. Rest in peace, Kim.
