    Gary Gygax Passes

    Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons and often known as the Father of Roleplaying, has passed away at the age of 69.

    As well as Dungeons & Dragons and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Gary authored his Dangerous Journeys and Lejendary Adventures RPGs, along with sourcebooks for Troll Lord Games' Castles & Crusades system and generic d20 sourcebooks. He was also the author of numerous fantasy novels, including Greyhawk Adventures, Gord the Rogue, and much more.

    You can read the CNN obituary here.

    Gary was also a regular poster here on EN World's messageboards, under the username Col_Pladoh. He will be missed.


    EN World member charlesatan has put together a list of tributes to Gary from across the web:

    I can't believe it. Gary Gygax is... my hero.

    I'm I'n shock.
