This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

:( :( :(

And thank you for your anecdot, pundit, it is very touching.

Although this was only a matter of time, this is very sad news indeed, I couldn't help but hope.

Rest in peace, erick

Erick, you were a really nice guy. Thanks for keeping up the (albeit sparse) contact with me all those years. You introduced me to diceless roleplaying, and this is what I'm still doing.

Thanks, man. And have fun, wherever you are.

Aloha

Erick Wujcik was one of the true greats. His vivid imagination and enthusiasm for the games he was designing jumped off the page at you. He had a tremendous impact on me as a young GM, and the lessons I learned (especially) from Amber Diceless continue to shape how I run games today. Both his work for Palladium (especially the absolutely beautiful Mystic China) and Phage Press are some of my most prized gaming artifacts. I can say with absolute sincerity that, although my personal relationship with him was practically nonexistant (composed of only a handful of e-mails), that I will never forget Mr. Wujcik and it absolutely breaks my heart to hear of his passing.

End of an era for me.

Amber and the associated RPG has taken up a huge portion of my thoughts, time, energy, and soul.

I've got that bitter, hollow nostalgia feeling, the one you get when confronted by something that makes you think you've gone past your own time.

Goodbye, Erick.  You will be missed.

I came across a long podcast interview with Eric. Despite the atrocious sound quality it's very interesting and engaging.

Part 1 (early years in Detroit, brief but brilliant game mastering advice)

Part 2 (Amber and China, thoughts on game design)

Sadness permeates the soul
He will be missed, but preceeds us all to that great gaming-room in the sky.
Prayers and blessings to his family & close ones.
I wish I were counted among them, sad I never met him, yet he still inspires me.

So many live, and deserve to die
So many die, and deserve to live
This is hard to understand
But one thing we can do
Never forget
Until someone is playing Amber
Until someone is reading the Books
Nor Roger, neither Erick are really dead.
