For those who have not heard, Gary Gygax, co-creator of the game that we all know and love, died this morning. He wasn't terribly old although I understand he had had is share of health issues.
He gave us Dungeons and Dragons and without that move the world that we live in would be a different place. No 1e, 2e, 3e, or 4e. No video game rpgs. No table top rpgs. My guess is that none of us here would have ever played an role-playing game in our lives. Likely there would be very little in the world of fantasy in pop culture without the creation of D&D those decades ago. Love him or hate him, he has impacted all our lives for the better and I would like to thank him for it .
R.I.P. Gary Gygax, keep rolling 20s.
