R.I.P. Gary Gygax

Posted on March 4, 2008 by Matt-M-McElroy

E. Gary Gygax has passed away. Gary was one of the creators of Dungeons & Dragons, in addition to many other games and novels over the years.

I had the chance to game with him a couple of times at various conventions over the years. I’m planning on GMing a little old-school “Dungeon Crawl” tonight, I think he would have appreciated that.

Don’t dwell on the man’s passing, celebrate his life…go play.

    A sad day. I met Gary several times over the course of my (brief) RPG writing career, and I was always impressed by his love for his games, his affection for the gaming hobby and its participants, and how he encouraged everyone to use their imaginations every day. RIP.
