Spotted this over on the Black Diamond Games Facebook page and thought it was a nice sentiment.
Robin Williams emerged on the scene in 1978 as a very strange Mork on Mork & Mindy, when odd and strange was subversive and suspect. This was also around the same time D&D hit it big in the US, with the first box set under many a kids Christmas tree -- also considered subversive and suspect. That these two are linked in my mind should not be too surprising. Neither should it be surprising Robin Williams was a gamer, mostly Warhammer 40K but also D&D. There were regular sightings of him at Bay Area game stores. I don't care much for celebrity culture, but Robin Williams was one of us.
