Disbelieve: E. Gary Gygax dies

March 4, 2008

I forgot that this would happen someday. Day after day passed, and I just don’t remember that some our of greats are getting up there in age.

Gary Gygax, one of the fathers of role playing, passed away this morning. When you’ve made a 26-year living off of the systems he helped to pioneer, it’s hard not to feel a little humbled and sad at the man’s passing.  I met him once at E3 or CES; I don’t recall which. Someone else introduced him to me knowing full well that I’d fanboy, and I did.

Rest in peace.
