    I do believe that March 4th should be known as GMs day to all gamers, everywhere forever more.

    I believe it actually was the EN Wolrders who chose this. I found out about it two years ago and I felt very amused because it's my birthday too. Yesterday I almost felt quilty to have birthday the same day that Mr. Gygax died :\ .

    It indeed ENWorlders who founded it - it was this thread!!

    Yeah, it's kinda amazing that Gary passed away on GM's day. I don't know if that is incredibly apt, or utterly horrible. I feel a bit morose about it actually. Maybe Enworld needs to have some sort of Web based wake for him or something where we can remember him. Maybe just a thread, maybe something more. And when we are done we can lock the thread for posterity

    Why would it need to be any other day? Gary's death was a tragic loss that affected all of us. However, I for one will forever remember Gary Gygax's death on this day because his passing was on GM's day.

    Indeed how karmic, how ironic, how sad, yet how utterly appropriate that perhaps the greatest GM of all left us on GM's day. I can think of no more fitting tribute to the greatest DM of all time than to continue to celebrate not only GM day on March 4th, but to remember Gary's life as well.

    My niece has a date with the Tomb of Horrors, 3/4/09.

    May E.G.G. be with her.
