R.I.P.: Gary Gygax

The Associated Press is reporting the death of Gary Gygax, saying the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons passed away this morning at age 69 of unspecified reasons, though they note he has been suffering with health issues for several years (thanks Mike and A51Abductee). Dungeons & Dragons, the pen and paper/miniatures game Gygax created along with Dave Arneson, established a template for virtually all role-playing games that have followed, and in spite of those health woes, he was still hosting weekly D&D sessions in his home as recently as the beginning of this year. Mr. Gygax is survived by his wife and six children, who have our deepest condolences.

That saddens me.

Does anyone there have a diamond worth 10,000 gp? I guess not...

He will be missed... I'll roll my D20 today for him. :-(
