Gary Gygax left the table yesterday. He would be 70 years in a couple of months.
I owe a lot to the game he created (toghether with Dave Arneson), a game like no other before. I played Dungeons & Dragons for the first time some 20 years ago and met some fantastic friends playing it. I hold many dear memories from many late night (and early morning) roleplaying sessions. Still have the books, of course, my son is reaching 10 years now, I think it's time to pass the flame to a younger generation.
Keep the dice rolling.
[edit: All around the web, tributes to Gary Gygax are being posted. I'll, add links as I find them. If you find some, please let me know.]
