Yeah I just heard on my drive in....

I was one of those geeky, awkward teens who worshiped Gary in the 80's.

RIP!

Dungeons and Dragons, and by extension Gary Gygax, opened my mind to a lot of things that I would never have known about otherwise, that my family would not have been interested in. In that way he shaped my life more than almost anyone else I can think of who I didn't actually know.
