Gygax gone

D&D creator Gary Gygax has died. Gamers everywhere roll to save vs. sadness.

I played D&D in high school, partly to pass the time, partly to hang out with the cute smart boys, and partly to consume my weight in Doritos and Mountain Dew. I was never a terribly serious player, but I clearly remember passing evenings in fun and camaraderie. There were more than a few people in my hometown who believed D&D was devil worship, but the only influence it had on me was to expand my imagination and my social circle.

Now the game's creator has gone on the ultimate adventure. We thank him and wish him well.
