And Now, The Bad News...

For Dr. Burns. RIP, sir.

Bob Meyer, who's leaving the building

Having survived the past couple of weeks, we have some bad news to announce.

Dr. Mike Burns, owner of Dark Fable Miniatures, last his battle with cancer last week. He'll be sorely missed; he was always easy and fun to deal with, and had a great line of figures.

Bob Meyer, aka Robert The Bold of Blackmoor, and one of Dave Arneson's original players, has announced that he will no longer be running his Blackmoor games. It is my understanding that he's in discussions with a local gamer to take over The One True Blackmoor Campaign.

That's the lowest of the low points of the last couple of weeks. There's more, and maybe I'll write about them, but not right now. Thanks for your patience.


  1. Definitely low points; hopefully things will look up the next couple weeks.

  2. I'm heartbroken to hear about Dr Burns, he was a lovely man and I always enjoyed our email exchanges over the years.

  3. Bad news indeed. I wish you and yours well.

  4. Thank you, everyone, for your very kind words. I had some more and much worse news come in this morning from another friend, which I am not at liberty to discuss. We'll get through this; it'll just take some time.
