When I was young (i.e., all the way through college) I played assorted pen and paper RPGs. It started with the first D&D red box set, quickly followed by AD&D, AD&D 2nd Addition, Marvel Comics, CyberPunk, MechWarriors, WarHammer 40k, and assorted other table top and pen and paper role playing games. I loved them, my friends loved them, and it gave us a chance to create explore and work our minds. I know I wouldn’t be who I am today without my chance at playing these games.

So, it’s very sad to learn that one of the creators of the original D&D and really one of the fathers off all modern RPG systems has passed away. Gary Gygax, co creator of D&D, passed away yesterday. Thank you for everything you’ve given us Gary!
