We salute you Gary Gygax. A true legend to gamers and the role playing genre itself. I myself loved the D&D series, and cannot truly fathom the amount of thanks and honors I wish I could do for him.
As many people have said before me,
"Roll up a new sheet wherever you incarnate next, Gary."
Anyone else here know of him?
I heard AnimeSuki talk about it, but no.
Still, mourn for the fallen warriors.
my friends are going to have game just for him even know we play vampire not d&d .
Well, even though I never got any further than MTG I did and do have respect for the man for creating such a monster game and it's a shame that he had to go (he wasn't even that old...)
Heard about him from the webcomic Order of the Stick (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0536.html). Although I haven't played D&D since I was a kid and then only a couple of times, his impact on fantasy stuff generally far outstrips his work solely on D&D imo. He will be missed :-/
Also! Chaotic neutral ftw :D
did he drop any good loot?
..someone had to say it
He died from poisoning himself. Nobody gets any XP. The End.
