RIP Gary Gygax

Sad news for the world of geekdom as Gary Gygax passed away today at the age of 69.

For those unfamiliar with the name, you're surely familiar with his creation: Dungeons & Dragons. D&D, originally only a role playing game, spawned enough books, both fiction and non-fiction, to fill their own library.

Salon has a decent story about this gentle man and Wil Wheaton posts about an experience very typical of those of us who were, and still are, into the D&D scene.
