RIP: Gary Gygax (1938 - 2008)

I'm sure there aren't any gamers out there who don't know this yet, but E. Gary Gygax, the co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, passed away yesterday at the ripe age of 69.  For millions of gamers, D&D was the first experience any of us had in exploring the depths of our imaginations to create worlds where we could be heroes or villains engaged in acts of derring-do and epic adventures.  And we all have EGG to thank for creating the first true role-playing game.  From everyone who spent hours on end wandering through dungeon after dungeon, or who argued a rule with their DM/GM, or who has played any computer RPG created since the early 80s, you will be missed.
