February 16, 2017: Loren Wiseman (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-02-16)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/Loren.jpg (http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/Loren.jpg)We learned today that Loren Wiseman had passed away, apparently from heart failure.

Loren was one of game design's earliest "greats." He was a founder of Game Designers Workshop and a co-creator of Traveller (http://www.farfuture.net), the science-fiction roleplaying game that set the standard for all the others. He was also a good friend.

He was inducted into the Origins Hall of Fame in 2003.

Loren worked with Steve Jackson Games for many years: writing GURPS Traveller (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/traveller/), editing the GT line, and creating an online incarnation of the notable Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/traveller/bestofjtas/).

Loren is depicted, along with the late Mike Ford, on the INWO (http://www.sjgames.com/inwo/) "Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow" card.

He'll be missed.
