I wrote a general email to Aaron Allston regarding his work on the Known World and kindly he replied & said he enjoyed working on Dawn of Emperors but can't really remember anything specific after 15 years of other projects. I guess maybe he doesn't remember or he doesn't like to talk about TSR that much these days.



I must admit, I understand & am pleased he replied at all but am a little disappointed as he had major involvement in the product line for the Known World.  Anyone have any ideas who I could email who would remember more about working on the Known World?

Tom Moldvay did several modules and gazetteers.  So did Ken Rolston and Carl Sargent.  Don't know who is still around or how to contact.  I bet someone on here does though.



Aaron is also a pretty good novelist.  I just read one of the Star Wars: New Jedi Order books that he wrote.  One of the best of the series.  I know he also wrote a sequel and I think a prequel for the Terminator franchise.

My understanding is that Carl Sargent was in a big car accident in the late 90's, and is therefore hard to reach.  Can anyone confirm that?

That's really sad. If what happened there is true about having a breakdown of sorts, I hope he's happy wherever he is & with what he's doing now.

Moldvay's MIA too, although Frank Mentzer knows how to reach him, apparently, and Ken Rolston's still around somewhere, IIRC.

I have long wondered about Carl.

Roger E. Moore has also departed gaming completely, after being laid off by WotC when they acquired TSR.  



I think the king TSR oldtimer at WotC at this point would be Harold Johnson, since they laid off Skip Williams.  I could easily be wrong on that score, though, since I'm not intimate with the WotC org structure.

Harold Johnson doesn't work for Wizards, I'm not sure what he's doing but he still lives in WI from what I've heard.



Stranglers song moment:



"Whatever happened to all the heroes?

All the Shakespearoes?

They watched their Rome burn

Whatever happened to the heroes?

Whatever happened to the heroes?



No more heroes any more

No more heroes any more"

"Woke last night to the sound of thunder

How far off, I sat and wondered

Started hummin' a song from 1962

Strange how the night moves."

Ken is alive and happy. I trade emails with him every now and then.

Indeed.



I hope Zeb is doing well too (especially now that he is posting here) and that Tom Moldvay is ok.

Would that be Zeb Cook?  What is his persona?
