Loren Wiseman RIP


Family and industry friends are reporting that seminal game designer Loren Wiseman has passed away. The exact cause of death is not yet known, but he has had long term health issues.

Wiseman co-founded Game Designers' Workshop with Frank Chadwick, Rich Banner, and Marc Miller in 1973, and co-designed Traveller with Marc Miller and others. After GDW closed in the mid-90s, Wiseman joined Steve Jackson Games and ended up developing and writing the GURPS edition of Traveller for them. He was the "Traveller Guru" for Steve Jackson Games until the GURPS Traveller line was discontinued in 2015.

In 2003 Wiseman was inducted into the Origins Hall of Fame.

Loved his work. Still love Traveller.

AD&D was my first introduction to roleplaying. Traveller, my second. I still have my original Starter Traveller set.

Sad day, indeed.

Traveller may not have been the first RPG I played (that was the Holmes edition D&D) but it was the first one I bought.

I played a lot of Traveller, it was the first sci-fi RPG I ever played. I haven't played it in years, but always appreciated the IP. RIP.
