G. Gary Gygax Has Died

G. Gary Gygax died today at the age of 69.

You don't know who G Gary Gygax is? Well, then you never played Dungeons and Dragons (D&D). His name was at the top of almost every one of the D&D books when I was young.

I gave many, many hours to playing D&D. I loved it. It gave me a way to connect with others, it inspired my imagination, and led me into my love of mythology, history, and religion. Of course, some people used to say that D&D was demonic. Well, I have not always been a Christian, but I definitely never worshiped Satan.

I have not played D&D for years and years. I transferred to GURPS sometime during college, but actually haven't touched that in years either.  I sometimes miss my super-geek days of rolling a 20 sided dice and praying that my Magic Resistance would save me from the blue dragon's Breath of Lightning.

So, farewell GGG. May God have mercy on your soul.
