|Death Notice Screen Cap 3/27/2014|
[Edit -- 3/28/2014] It has been confirmed that David A. Trampier has died. According to sthorne, owner of Castle Perilous Games and Books, David suffered from a stroke several months ago and doctors had detected cancer (no word on what type) shortly before his death. What makes this all the more sad is that after years outside the hobby Trampier had agreed to appear at the Egypt Wars convention less than a month ago.
Tom Wham!, Trampier's former brother-in-law also believes it was the same Trampier.
[Edit -- 3/28/2014] Lots of people are saying goodbye to Trampier across the web and social media. Let's say goodbye together.
