nothing more to be said really... I don't know if EVE-online would have existed without him.
I do know that D&D got me into gaming, so I wouldn't have played eve without him.
I'm saddened by his passing, my heart goes out to his family and friends.

Still remember my first copy of D&D Basic box, back in the early 1980-ies, and later the AD&D books. After reading Tolkien, he helped me on my next steps in my escapistic quest to avoid RL.
