kmusser: (Gaming)
My father, Jim Musser, passed away today after a long battle with Cirrhosis. Jim spent most of his life working as an editor and journalist for the Chicago Tribune, but his real passion was games. He contributed to many aspects of the gaming industry; as a game designer for Mayfair Games; as a writer and editor for Mayfair, FASA, and TSR; and as a game store owner and manager in Chicago.

And of course as a gamer. I was pretty well doomed as he introduced me to both board games and role-playing games almost as soon as I could read. Thank you father for a wonderful hobby. Who knows, perhaps some of his unpublished games will see the light of day yet.

Game Designer for Mayfair Games:
Designer of Alibi, Road to the Whitehouse, and the re-design of Cosmic Encounter and its expansions.

Editor for Mayfair Games:
DC Heroes and Chill product lines

Editor and writer for FASA:
Battletech, Shadowrun, Star Trek, and Renegede Legion lines

Editor and writer for TSR:
AD&D: Tales of Enchantment
Forgotten Realms: Cormyr

owned The Gamer's Place in Oak Park, Illinois
managed The Emperor's Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois

P.S. Thank you for all the condolences, they are greatly appreciated.
