    AlHazred reacted to A.C for an article, R.I.P. Darren Watts   
    Darren Watts has passed away as of New Years Eve.
    In the words of our General Manager, Jason Walters, "Darren Watts was a singular person of the sort that comes along once in a generation. His accomplishments are too many to list here: author, editor, publisher, and promoter all come to mind. He was an amazingly enthusiastic and interesting man, and there is no one that can ever replace him."
    Darren worked on many projects throughout his lifetime, with the purchasing and revitalization of Hero Games in 2001 being just one of his accomplishments. He also devoted much of his time and effort supporting smaller and independent creators through his work with our sister company Indie Press Revolution, and was a well-known figure at many TTRPG conventions.
    Our condolences go out to Darren's wife, Diane, as well as their families and all of Darren's friends. We will miss him greatly.

    AlHazred reacted to A.C for an article, RIP Scott Bennie   
    We here at Hero Games are deeply saddened to announce that our long-time friend, and frequent Hero Games author, Scott Bennie passed away earlier this week from complications due to pneumonia. As many of you already know, Scott suffered from extensive health problems for most of his life, and unfortunately this was one last struggle he simply couldn't win.
    I personally met Scott in the early Nineties -- probably at one of the first DunDraCons I attended -- after I began writing for Hero myself and hitting the con circuit. In addition to being a talented writer and game designer -- perhaps best known to Hero gamers for his superb work on Classic Enemies and two VIPER sourcebooks -- Scott was quite simply one of the kindest, gentlest people I've ever had the privilege to know. I'm so glad I had the chance to work with him on several projects, including the VIPER and Villainy Amok sourcebooks for HERO System 5th Edition.
    The world is a darker place without Scott's light in it, and all of us here at Hero Games shall miss him terribly.
