RIP Gary Gygax : Critical Hits

Troll Lord games

Gary Gygax, the Great Granddaddy GM. the inventor of the whole concept of what we have come to call role-playing, died yesterday at the age of 69. He invented Dungeons & Dragosn the Game that started it all. After having his company basically stolen from him, eh was forced to sign a contract, dis-allowing him fro working in the gaming industry for over a decade. Wizards of the coast bought TSR, and brought him back on board. With the release of 4th edition only a short while away, he passed as his creation was being born anew. He also authored works such as: Dangerous Journeys and Lejendary Adventures.

right up to the day of his death, he continued to game, as both a GM and a player, frequently posting on message boards, he loved to communicate directly with his fans. He will be dearly missed.
