View Full Version : RIP Gary Gygax
Sad to see that he's gone, he created something that i've thoroughly enjoyed over the years and I know a good few of you have as well...I saw that he'd passed away a few days ago but being asked to run some D&D made me think about it...
Wow, that takes me back a bit.
Wow - I thought he was one of the Immortals!
So many memories....
I still @39 do a bit of LARP (live action role play) that was a progression from table top - I owe him a great deal I would not have met my wife and had two great kids.
a sad loss,
I missed that, it was D&D that got me started in miniature gaming, wasn't on D&D for long before moving to historical stuff but I wouldn't have a loft full of lead if it wasn't for him :rolleyes:

Sorry to hear of his death. Still got my original 3 books from way back
Yeah, was a sad day - was good that he was still managing to get his regular game in up until January though...
I'm more of a board-gamer these days - not enough people I know with enough time to RP...
Article on his life and works has been put up on the wired site....
there'll have to be a memorial game of summit at the meet...
That's quite sad to hear. Looks like he finally rolled a 1 on a saving throw. GG is responsible for hundreds if not thousands of lost hours in game prep as a GM never mind actually playing the damn game, for me.... Ahh he will be remembered with fondness, he gave a true treasure to the world - an easy way to access your imagination, a way to live out dreams and desires with friends.
an easy way to access your imagination, a way to live out dreams and desires with friends. but not in an odd or weird way.. :lmao:
Well, at least he's probably giving Death a run for his money (http://www.xkcd.com/393/). ;)
