The disappearance of R. Lawrence Blake

Exactly one month ago another of our fellow rpg bloggers stepped away from the keyboard, at least for blogging purposes, and I've just slowed down long enough to bid my regards. Mr. Blake's blog was the excellent Prime Requisite Games and I know that many of you where followers of his work. I've been known to draw an occasional doodle but generally shy away from most forms of graphic representation. Lawrence impressed me with by his ability to design rpg adventures as well as produce the art work for the adventures. I'm sure it's safe to assume that he did the layout and word processing for these, Labyrinth Lord based, adventures.

In his last blog, Lawrence mentioned that he would no longer have time for rpg or Prime Requisite Game related activities due to the responsibilities of regular life. He implies that he should eventually return after an undetermined hiatus. I'm certainly sorry to lose such a productive member of the rpg blog community and look forward to, what I hope is, the eventual return of R. Lawrence Blake and Prime Requisite Games.

Good luck, Lawrence, with your presuits in the day to day and thanks to the contributions you have left for us to enjoy.


  1. Thanks for the shout-out and kind words. I do wish I had more time to dedicate to our favorite hobby, especially since I have a new LL hardback partway finished.

    One day soon I'll get back to it. When I do, I will probably not make any announcements about it on my blog in case I have to shut down shop again. I don't want to have any expectations on possible future projects since my track record in getting blog-announced projects out isn't the greatest. :)

    Take care, Chris, and Happy Gaming!

  2. I'm glad to see you found a bit of time to surf the ol' blog-o-sphere and wish you well with all your current projects and endeavors.
