Thanks Gary

Gary GygaxYesterday Gary Gygax passed away at the age of 69. Most of you probably won’t have a clue who he is but to the geeks; he is a hero. To some of you, after you find out who he is, you may think he is the devil’s own son, but you are wrong and ignorant.

Gary Gygax is the man who wrote the book, litteraly, on Dungeons and Dragons. He invented the game and wrote the first Player’s handbook and Dungeons master’s guide. His invention kept me sane in highschool and continues to give pleasure to my life today.

A buddy of mine won the chance to play with him and said he is one the the nicest guys he had ever met. I just wanted to tip my hat to the man.

Those of you who do know him may apprecite this tribute from order of the stick.
