Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, has passed away. He and Dave Arneson developed the game in 1974. I will remember him best for keeping me safe from the evils of sex during my teenage years. He is survived by his wife and six children. And while officials assert his death was the result of long-declining health conditions, I suspect a rogue dwarf was involved. Seriously though, he will be missed.
RIP Gary Gygax (1938-2008)
Thanks to Alan, who is thankfully still alive, for the tip
