One of the worst parts about this job is writing about great figures in geekdom who pass on. Today is especially hard, as I have to bring news that Gary Gygax died earlier this morning. Gygax was the co-creator and driving force behind Dungeons & Dragons, arguably the most important tabletop game ever made.

The Dungeon Master’s Dungeon Master had many health problems, and reportedly passed away peacefully last night. He’s one man I always wanted to meet but never got the chance. Tonight I will be pouring a little mead out for my homie Gygax, the Great Wizard himself.
