Greg Lee

These type of posts are the ones I hate most to write. I still think it is important to do so. Gregory P. Lee has now joined the growing group of absent friends. 🙁

Greg Lee was an active member in the online Traveller community. He may be most known for his amazing Cirque adventure published by his Greylock Publishing Lines. For Traveller he has also published Lee’s Guide to Interstellar Adventure.

This is what he wrote in my copy of Cirque.

Greylock Publishing Lines was also a generous sponsor of the first Amber Zone contest.

Greg was also working on a new Traveller product, that some of you may have heard of. He has written a Traveller novel called Cirque: The Usual Suspects. I was one of the lucky ones who got to read a copy. It is a great novel set in the universe that I love. The novel is describing events that happened before the adventure called Cirque. An interesting idea about Rhylanor that was first presented in the MgT Alien Module 4: Zhodani by Donald McKinney is used in the novel.

Just for fun I generated a map without hexes for the main area of space (Rhylanor subsector) of the novel.

Follow this link to read something that Greg wrote about the novel at the Traveller RPG facebook group.

I really hope that this novel will be published. It is too good to be lost.

RIP Gregory P. Lee 🙁

Donavan Lambertus

Very sad news about Donavan Lambertus that has suddenly left us and now joined the growing group of absent friends. 🙁

(More information at facebook.)

Donavan was the person behind the company DSL Ironworks that produced lots of cool products for Traveller. One of the most useful and inventive things from DSL Ironworks was the Quick Decks series that could help you make pretty deckplans.

Quick Decks 2
DSL Ironwork has also been a generous sponsor of the Amber Zone contests. We miss you already Donavan. 🙁

Loren Wiseman

New to the list of Absent Friends is Loren Wiseman. 🙁

Marc Miller has this to say:

Digging through my old mailbox I found this. 12 years ago Loren asked me to remove a spoof GURPS Traveller cover from the Zhodani Base. His reply after I removed it was:

Thank you for your rapid attention to this matter. I found the rest of your website amusing and entertaining.

RIP Loren Wiseman.
