Troll Lord Games is reporting that Gary Gygax has passed away.

Keep the flame alive, my friends.


  1. Damn! Heard it here first...

    My game session is tomorrow; I got to let my players know about this. I got to let GEAS know about this. Some form of memorial is in order.

    I'm feeling strange; I'm going outside for a smoke.

  2. Gah :( Well, we knew his health had been rotten lately, but still ... gah.

  3. Just heard about this on Metafilter. It's sad to see him go, but he had a GREAT run and brought happiness to millions. I hope he's enjoying whatever Good-aligned Outer Plane he finds himself on :)

  4. He opened the gateway to this weirdness for me, for which I'm eternally grateful. Rest easy.

  5. I'm thinking about doing something special during Tonight's game. Something epic.

    Maybe it's finally time that I purged out all of the borrowed Greyhawk deities in my campaign.

  6. Just this morning I was rolling up Hordelings from his Monster Manual II.

    It's tough to sum up just how much of an impact his work has had on me.

    Thanks for the fun times, Gary.
