Our fantastic group of gaming friends played countless games of D&D and Star Wars under Dave's peerless game mastering over the years (where his moniker Emperor PalpaDave came from), and in countless more 40k:RPG games that I'd run with him as a player. Dave and I weathered six editions of 40k together and dove in to the heresy with both feet, culminating in a trip across the pond to visit Warhammer World and play in what ended up being one of the last Tempus Fugitives events. As time went on Real Life took up more of everyone's free time but Dave and I always managed to get in a couple games of 40k in a year, our annual July 4th game was a source of much revelry and months of smack talking both before and afterwards. We've attended GenCon every year for the last decade, meeting up with some of our old gaming buddies who have scattered across the globe. Gonna be a bittersweet trip to indy this coming year, but we're going to have a good time lifting a pint in his honour.
We'll roll some dice and push some lead on the other side, buddy. You're going to be missed.
