Just found out fellow Long Island Pathfinder Society Campaign Organizer Dan Telford passed away recently after a bout with cancer.

He was the Venture Lieutenant for Nassau County and after introducing him to the Society, he became one of the most prolific GMs I knew. He ran two to three games a week, every week for nearly three years straight.

Legendary Realms in Plainview, Long Island will be a much emptier place without him.My condolences to his family and his faithful PFS friends,I am sure he will be sorely missed.

May his name be etched in the wall for all to remember.

Damn. Not far away from me at all.

May he rest peacefully.

Dan was a good friend, a great GM and a joy to have on your table. He played a lot online and was hugely popular with the UK crowd. He will be missed terribly.

I met Dan when I was first getting into Society, Pathfinder, and Tabletop games in general. We played in person and Online when I moved away from the area, and I always looked forward to playing with him. He's the main reason I stuck around in my early days, and I'm going to miss him terribly.

Dan was a stalwart supporter of Pathfinder Society, both physically in the New York area and online. It is with great sadness we at the Paizo office learned of Dan's passing. He absence leaves a hole in the Venture-Officer ranks. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Hugs to all!

I played a few games with him when I first started playing online PFS. He was incredibly helpful with learning the medium. My condolences to his family, and everyone that will miss him.

Dan, you were a good man and fellow player. You will be missed.


It never was a bad table when Dan was there. Even if other things weren't going right, he always made it fun. One of the best gamers I have ever played with. He will be missed and so will Imsaalem's pies.

Dan will be sorely missed in the New York area. I played PFs with him quite a bit over the years at local cons and in NYC.
I was always glad to have him as a GM or a fellow player.

Godspeed, Dan, may the road you now walk always rise up to greet you.
