Stewart Wieck has passed.

My condolences to friends and family of a man who was quickly becoming a friend and mentor. A sad day when you’re mourning the loss of a childhood hero; a titan of my youth who helped shape my writing ability and gaming expertise. Worse, when you mourn a friend, no matter how long you’ve known him. Today will be spent reading his books and playing his games. I hope you guys can take a moment today to remember a man who helped create a legend in tabletop gaming.

Yesterday my brother Stewart Wieck died. He had just finished a light fencing workout and then fell over. All attempts to resuscitate him failed. It’s still unknown what caused it; we’ll know more in a few days. Something catastrophic in his heart perhaps.

He was an incredible human being, full of kindness and empathy, fun and artistic passion.

I was supposed to grow old drinking and gaming with him. Now that will have to wait for heaven or Valhalla or whatever comes next.

And of course, leave it to Stewart to die with a sword in his hand.

No need for flowers, no memorial service has been arranged yet, we’re just taking things a step at a time.

Anyone involved with Stewart’s publishing projects feel free to reach out to me in a few weeks.
