J. Eric Holmes, author of the 1977 Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set, has died at the age of 80.

D&D Basic Set

The 1978 printing of that Basic Set was the first version of D&D that Bob and I played with in the summer of 1979, when we introduced the proto-GNO group in Rock Hill to the game. It included module B1, “In Search of the Unknown,” which Ben ran an adaptation of last year for some of the same people.
