We might want to open the Wicked Press forum for a bit to post an announcement related to this:

Hyrum Savage (from OtherWorld Creations) has denied the report. He said that he talked to Wick today. As for _when_ he talked to John, we'll have to wait and see.

You can check on the thread at http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10879&perpage=20&pagenumber=1 for the latest input.  As I say there, I hope it's someones' idea of a sick, sick joke - the CHP traffic site lists no fatal accident on the 110 near LA today.  Still not definite, though.

I know there are some sick folks in RPG-land, but damn.

It does look as though someone has indeed hacked the Wicked Press site (which was down the last time I checked it).

I jumped out of my seat when I first read this, though. Is this a random thing? Or is this in response to something he's said online? Maybe it's because I haven't read much of the Gaming Outpost or RPG.net forums at all, but I don't recall seeing anything that John's ever said or done that would cause people to be this malicious.

I for one am a fan of everything he's written, and am fervently hoping for more soon.

It's looking increasingly like a hoax. It's very wierd, tho. The initial announcment was very heartfelt. If it's a hoax, they put a disturbing amount of emotion and effort into it.

When all the facts are in, we still might want to post something on the Wicked Press forum about this.

Hey - drop this now, please. The last thing I want to see over here is hysteria.

I'm not opening a game forum to talk about hoaxes. John's fine, and unless there's something meaningful to add to this, this thread can be considered closed.
