    The creator of Dungeons and Dragons. He will be missed.

    I spent many nights of my young adulthood laughing with friends playing his co-creation. Sire Cuthstan The Not-So-Good tippeth his sword to him.




    There. I admit it.

    He missed that last, critical saving throw.

    Ha!

    Just start over and make a new character.

    Never played Dungeons & Dragons.

    Played the hell out of the Final Fantasy video game series growing up, so I guess I owe Mr. Gygax more than a bit.

    I was a wild AD&D addict for a few years. I probably would have done much better in high school and college if that game didn't exist.

    I still have literally thousands of modules, rulebooks, accessories, adventures, magazines and boxed sets of Dungeons and Dragons. At one point I had pretty much everything ever made for the game. I sold tons of it, but I still have a room full.

    Anybody want to buy some?
