Creator of The Empire of the Petal Throne dies at 83
I am less familiar with his later works, and have only recently become familar with his most famous and influencial game, Empire of the Petal Throne - which for it's time, and still is, a masterpiece adaptation of the D&D rules into the most intense of Sci-Fantasy settings. Renaissance man, Professor M.A.R. Barker has many fans from all around the world, and his works are now entertaining a new generation of players.
