Critical Fumble

I wasn’t going to comment immediately on the death of Gary Gygax, co-creator of the Dungeons and Dragons game, because I was pretty sure that lots of blogs and webcomics would do so, and I wanted to try to avoid the “LOL DIDNT MAKE HIS SAVING THROW VS DEATH LOLOLROFLOL !11!111 EPIC FAIL !!1!!1 LONG CAT IS LONG” comments where possible, because they would no doubt be legion. And they were. But that flood seems to be over now.

So Bye bye Mr Gygax. Your game occupied a whole bunch of my teenage years, and encouraged me to use my imagination, for that I am in your debt.

Your influence is still felt on RPGs to this day, and probably will be forever. That’s a pretty good legacy.
