RPGaDay2020 Prompt 05 – Tribute

Prompt: Tribute

This prompt took a bit more thought, but quickly I came to the luminaries that preceeded us in the gaming industry, that blazed the way for the games that we enjoy. Greg Stafford was the first that came to mind- though I started with AD&D and Rolemaster, RuneQuest and BRP were large parts of the experience, especially as they were the systems used in Call of Cthulhu, which became the basis of most of the experience, leading to Gumshoe today. But tributes can also be made to those that shape my present day gaming: Vincent Baker, Fred Hicks, Robin Laws, Kenneth Hite, Greg Stolze- those and many more shaped my preferences and gaming style, and continue to do so today.
