Gary Gygax, RIP


Gary Gygax, who along with Dave Arneson, created Dungeons and Dragons, died this morning at the age of 69 at his home in Lake Geneva, WI.
I am very saddened to hear of his passing. I cannot put into words how influential Mr. Gygax was in my life. He not only taught me to use my imagination, he taught me how to apply it within a system of rules and boundaries. That experience, more than any other, I believe is responsible for whatever moderate amount of success I have achieved as an adult.
Thanks for everything Mr. Gygax. I hope you find the lands of your dreams in the afterlife.
