Dungeons and Dragons creator dies

Gary Gygax, co-creator of the first role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons, has died at the age of 69.

If you totalled up the number of hours I've spent playing D&D, and some of its offshoots, sin I began as a wee sprout in Junior Hight School, it would probably total something like a year of my life.

R.I.P., and Thank You, to Gary Gygax, for creating a hobby that has brought so much pleasure, and good company (I have a nephew because of D&D), to so many millions of people. Long may it continue to do so!
