I had played in a couple of game run by him-Entropy (unpublished SF RPG), and Amber. This was before the game was published as well...

I got to play in a couple of Erick's unpublished "experimental" games and they were a blast, but I didn't discover the Amber game until after its publication.

Can you share some insights about the pre-publication Sorcery system? I've talked with several of the original playtesters and they all remember that Sorcery was different but none of them can seem to remember enough give me specifics or saved the early docs they got from Erick. :(

One adventure that I remember playing with Erick was one called Ghost Ship. This was science fiction based, and we played characters exploring a derelict space ship. It was not diceless-but very limited use of dice. All of the players were good roleplayers, and we had a 100% survival rate. If you remember what Erick was like as a game master, you had to be good to survive in his games.
He did have a saying that he would only let players die for only two reasons-character action, or combat. But his scenarios were so difficult that surviving surviving them was very difficult.

It was today.

Yeah, a whole decade now. Really sucks. :(

I know that we have LoO and LoGaS, but it's also sad that in ten years the DBD crew has been able to do nothing with the "real" ADRP game other than sell a few PDFs. :(

RPGPundit:
Yes. But, 10 years after Erick's passing, we're starting a brand-new campaign of Lords of Olympus. The beat goes on...
