RIP Stewart Wieck (22 June 2017)

From Steve Wieck

"Yesterday (22nd June) my brother Stewart Wieck died. He had just finished a light fencing workout and then fell over. All attempts to resuscitate him failed. It's still unknown what caused it; we'll know more in a few days. Something catastrophic in his heart perhaps.
Stewart was 49, ate right, exercised, a specimen of good health... it's all just.. stunning that he could possibly, suddenly be gone.
He was my brother, my best friend, my business partner since we started White Wolf in high school. He was an incredible human being, full of kindness and empathy, fun and artistic passion.
I was supposed to grow old drinking and gaming with him. Now that will have to wait for heaven or Valhalla or whatever comes next.
And of course, leave it to Stewart to die with a sword in his hand.
No need for flowers, no memorial service has been arranged yet, we're just taking things a step at a time."

It's shocking and saddening. He was only 49, and was a giant in the RPG hobby: Co-founder of White Wolf, core writer of Mage: The Ascension, owner of Nocturnal Media (publishers of King Arthur Pendragon amongst others).

I always found him a vibrant and enthusiastic presence and am truly shocked.
