Gary Gygax 1938-2008

I just read that Gary Gygax died.

I met him a couple times, he was always very nice. He helped make something that shaped the person I turned out to be, and we’ll all miss him.

When I was at lunch, I bought a Mountain Dew and poured one out on the curb for our dear departed Dungeon Master. It seemed kinda silly, but I didn’t really know what else to do.

Aim for the higher planes, old friend. 🙁

    Rest in peace, Gary. You’ll be missed.

    Let’s all have a mid-week D&D game to celebrate his life.

    I just stumbled into this blog, googling Gary Gygax… I feel sad for him, he was a great guy and made many cool things in his life. Nice guiding Gary, you were the first to score a natural 20, credits for that.
