    On the one hand, though, Luke and Ernie aren't going to do anything do damage their father's name and legacy. They both love D&D, heck, some of their early characters are in the AD&D Rogue's Gallery. They're part of AD&D history, too!

    My perspective (and involvement) here: http://www.examiner.com/article/tsr-...gygax-magazine

    At this time Gail is not a part of Gygax Magazine. Personally, I hope that she decides to come onboard in the future. All the posts from Gygax Magazine staff I've seen were clear that this project is something Ernie and I are involved in as part of a larger team including Tim Kask, Jayson Elliott, James Carpio and Jim Wampler.

    Gygax Magazine is supported by the Gygax family members who are actually gamers. Ernie (aka Ernest Gary Gygax Jr.) was the first person to playtest D&D, played numerous iconic characters in Greyhawk and worked for TSR through the 1980's. I cut my teeth on gaming and feel passionate about the positive aspects that gaming brings to people's lives. Gygax Magazine is a way for us to share our love of gaming both Old School and current systems with the gaming community. We are focused on producing a quality magazine and we hope that you will take the time to read the first issue in December.

    Of course Luke and Ernie are entitled to use their own surname.

    I would have hoped that Mrs. Gygax could have given us an update on the progress of the Castle Zagyg project while clarifying her position regarding this upcoming magazine.

    I was thinking the same.

    Yup. What about LA, and the other stuff that TLG had?

    That'd send entirely the wrong message. "I totally don't support *their* work. But *my* work is going like this..." No, that's horrible PR.

    In general, a professional doesn't want to have to touch what will appear like a family matter in public. To mix in project status reports would be... downright unseemly. She should save such announcements for another time.

    I just want to take a moment to say that, while I only met Gail Gygax once, for a very brief period of time, she struck me as being a very compassionate woman who loved Gary a great deal and has a lot of concern for his legacy - the time we met was when she was at Gen Con, in 2011, helping to sell copies of Cheers Gary to help fund the Gygax Memorial and collecting testimonials about what Gary meant to us gamers.

    She's not involved in Gygax Magazine right now, and she wants to make it clear that Gary's legal estate is not involved either - okay. Neither of those things should be cause to impugn her in any way, shape, or form.

    Lighten up guys.
