Gary Gygax, RIP

Gary Gygax, the creator of Dungeons and Dragons has died at the age of 69.

Gygax was one of the most influential people to anyone who considered themselves a geek after 1975 or so.

Wow.

I met him once, at I-Con years ago, and we interviewed him for The Chronic Rift (drewshi did the interview). He was apparently hosting weekly D&D games right up until the end.

He will be sorely missed.

(Of course, now Al Gore, Nichelle Nichols, and Stephen Hawking will need a new fourth....)
