For my second to last past of RPGaDay, who is my favourite RPG playing celebrity?

One of my biggest heroes growing up was Robin Williams. He was a comic genius and in everything I saw of him, a genuinely decent and caring guy. He lived the motto: life is crazy and you can either laugh or cry.


When I heard he role-played, I had already been playing for years, but it validated gaming further for me for some reason and I always dreamed one day of playing with him. I knew it would never happen, but that was the dream.

I’m sad that we have lost him, but the joy he has brought to this world is unparalleled, and to think he gamed too – icing on the cake.

More awesomeness...
