RIP N. Robin Crossby

Yesterday, the game designer N. Robin Crossby passed away.

Crossby is remembered for creating Hârn, a fantasy setting second to none in its attention to realism, and for keeping the setting and the game going for 25 years. Hârn has also inspired a devoted, creative and amazingly productive fandom.

I must admit that I have only a passing familiarity with Crossby’s work, but what little I have read managed to be realistic while retaining a certain sense of wonder about it. It was good.

Rest in peace, Robin Crossby.

The year is getting grimmer by the month.
