Sad News About Eric Wujcik


This website is dedicated to Erick Wujcik, game designer, writer, artist, originator of ideas, thinker and kind soul. Friend to countless people and an inspiration to thousands upon thousands more.

He is one of my dearest friends, so it is with a heavy heart that I report Erick Wujcik, age 56, is dying of cancer.
The site makes it sound like Erick's situation is much more dire than that of Alexander Cherry, who last I heard (last week) was still fighting hard, in considerable danger but by no means beyond hope.

Erick made a big difference in my gaming life, starting with the fun Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the wonderfully deranged Ninjas & Superspies, and then of course there was this little article, in Shadis or something like that, where he talked about the nutty idea of "diceless gaming"...

He will be missed.
