I've been trying to find words for the loss of one of gaming's fathers. Gary Gygax, co-creator of the most revolutionary gaming system to date died recently. I'm not good at stuff like this but honestly the only thing to say is that he will be missed. I never met the man myself, but I wanted to. Just like I wanted to meet Ray Charles, two down.
I actually own an original copy of the first Dungeons and Dragons ever printed still. It's not pretty but it's a part of history. Thanks for gaming with us Mr. Gygax, lets hope your tour of the planes didn't end there.
