To the tune of one of my favorite songs, American Pie….
A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How these wacky worlds used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That they all could honour Mr. Vance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while.
But the last months made me shiver,
With every blogpost I’d deliver.
Bad news on the reader;
It couldn’t get much meaner.
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride,
But something touched me deep inside
The year, the hobby died.
See the rest at The Prussian Gamer…
And sadly truer than I would ever want it to be. Between 4th edition and the deaths of Gary Gygax, Bob Bledsaw, and Erick Wujcik this year really does sometimes feel like the year the hobby (as I knew it) died.
