A fund has been set up to support medical care for longtime game designer Jim Ward, who’s suffering from a serious neurological disorder.  Although the condition is treatable and manageable, it will remain serious and has required extensive medical care, for which the co-pays moved into five figures some time ago.  


We first met Ward when he headed up product development at TSR, where he was author or co-author of Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes (the 4th supplement to D&D), Metamorphosis Alpha (the first SF RPG) and Gamma World.  Since then he designed the Dragon Ball Z, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Spellfire CCGs and many other games. 


This page, Friends of Starship Warden, provides more info on the fund.
