‘The Buffalo is still Flying!’

Following Flying Buffalo founder and president Rick Loomis’ passing last week, company manager Steve Crompton has issued a statement about the future of the games publisher and its products.

“We will miss Rick every single day, and we plan to honor his wishes and hopes for the future of Flying Buffalo going forward,” Crompton wrote. He added:

So what happens now?

“Rick’s sisters and the entire Buffalo team are committed to continuing to process and ship out your Kickstarter and other orders. In fact just today I did another 25 orders and they are now in shipping, ready to be packaged up. And tomorrow we’ll be taking 40 finished orders to the post office. As of now, we only have about 175 MSPE (Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes) orders left to ship out of the original 675 we started with. And we will continue to ship out your orders until all of them have gone out. After that, we will move on to doing the same thing for Elvenlords the other Kickstarter that needs to be completed.”

Is Flying Buffalo going to keep publishing?

“Down the road there will also be new products for T&T (Tunnels & Trolls), MSPE, Nuclear War, and Catalyst books like new Traps and Citybooks. They may not come as quickly as we’d like right now, as there is a lot to do in regards to taking care of Rick’s estate and Flying Buffalo. But rest assured, we are soldiering onward. That’s what Rick wanted us to do – and we plan to do just that. We have numerous projects in various stages of completion and we will find a way to bring those forward.”


Crompton also organized the fundraiser for Loomis’ health expenses after he fell ill, which has raised over $40,000 not counting a bundle of gaming PDFs to benefit the cause.
