Gary Gygax fails Saving throw at 69.

 

Gary Gygax failed his last saving throw vs death. Gygax was 69. He was a co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, first published in 1974.

Credited as the first pen-and-paper RPG, it allowed for a safe and intelligent way for geeky kids or hang-out and have fun.

The game also spawned the much large universe of the video games and MMO's (Massive Multiplayer online games) that are seen today.

  Sorry about the size of the article  
 
But I didn't have much to work with, so I rolled a Die and ran with it.

  Saddened  
 
I am sorry to hear the news and just for the un official record. Not all of the people who played Dungeons and dragons where geeks. I played the game after I quit drinking and bar hoping and it gave me an out let on the weekends that kept me from reverting back to the drunken stupiditythat almost cost me my life. I can also say I have spoken with the man personally and he was actually a cool guy as far as I am concerned. But Heres to you Gary . May your legacy carry on long after your gone.

  I never really played D & D  
 
Lots of my friends did, so I knew who the Gygax was. Mostly I wondered what country his family name came from. Anyone know?

  May he roll a 20 at the pearly gates  
 
and send all the demons from hell back to their prospective realms. RIP Gary, you are truly a 30 lv wizard.
