Dale "Slade" Henson is a game designer who has worked primarily on role-playing games.


When the Spelljammer line ended, Slade Henson came up with the idea of building a new setting on Jeff Grubb's first-edition Manual of the Planes (1987); the idea sat dormant for a year until David Cook picked up the idea and developed Planescape (1993) as a result.[1]

Henson's D&D design work included Monstrous Compendium Spelljammer Appendix (1990), Realmspace (1991), Monstrous Compendium Forgotten Realms Appendix II (1991), Howl From the North (1991), Book of Crypts (1991), Unsung Heroes (1992), The Magic Encyclopedia (1992), The Knight of Newts (1993), Blood Enemies: Abominations of Cerilia (1995), and Netheril: Empire of Magic (1996).

Henson also did significant work on TSR's Buck Rogers XXVC role-playing game, including the supplements Earth is the 25th Century (1990), Hardware (1992), and particularly No Humans Allowed (1992) for which he won a Hugo Award.
