What more is there to say?

|Sniff sniff. |
I think the next DnD should have a memorial to him, like Izchak in Nethack.

|D&D was my gateway game, although it was at the very beginning of 3rd edition, some 7 years ago. I've played in a few other systems since then, including some homebrew, but I still have a soft spot for 3e.|
And then I went and married the man who introduced me to the game. So I suppose that's a double debt.
Whatever you think of D&D itself, it's probably what got the whole RPG ball rolling. I know my life is definitely richer for it.

|Gygax indirectly nearly killed me several times when I was twelve!|
See, when I was a kid, I used to play DnD with two of my friends, and for some reason, I couldn't keep a straight head during it, so our GM would say "There's a band of orcs coming up behind you in the hallway!" and I would burst out laughing. In fact, I'd laugh so hard that I couldn't breathe. I would spend the next five minutes gaining back my ability to inhale and recuperating from my brush with death.
So yeah... RIP, Gygax.

|Wow. What surprising and shocking news from one of the great creators of the RPG genre. R.I.P. Gary Gygax.|
