I am sad to pass on the news here that Loren Wiseman, one of the founding members of GDW and contributor to many a Traveller product, has died :(.

He was one of the good guys. :(

Very sad news. I have all of his CT ship PDFs. If anything he was possibly more "Mr Traveller" than Marc was, especially after GDW. :(

I enjoyed his vision of Traveller the most. I wanted to meet him some day.
RIP.
