    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    A few updates today. There was a hearing. Not too much was mentioned that we can understand without context For some reason, there is an order on record about the transcripts from Luke's attorney. There's some discussion about a trial (either new or a continuation of the process), but...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    Yeah, it's got to be something like that. It's not related to D&D as the other forums I've noticed are not as traffic-sensitive to the state of D&D that as ENWorld would be.

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    No problem. I just remember posting that three months ago, and not seeing any reactions or replies to that post, considering it was an important thing people wanted to know. So when you said "where's the will" I got kind of irritated. (I've noticed most RPG message boards lately have less...

    (I swear, if people are putting me on ignore I won't post the future docs I'm ordering, as I'm even considering ordering the transcripts).

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    True, I'm just wondering if RK will try to make a seperate case against the estate outside of probate.

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    If you read the case log which you can do online, he did file. The publication date was delayed because the Will was only put into probate this year, so he did follow the procedural rules for the claims and filed it -- that's assuming he counts as a creditor. I suspect the issue goes back to...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    Unfortunately, that's not really something you will get a clear answer for, unless she decides to share it. You can analyze these documents over and over, but you'll never be able to read the minds of the people involved. You can only speculate that part. To be honest, this thread is a lot...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    A few quick observations. All we know for certain is that the estate is in a neutral parties hands, and both this auction and the licensing of the IP is to pay for those fees. Nothing has been decided. The re-introduction of product is a temporary thing for now. The judge mentioned...

    D&D General Luke Gygax Brings Back Gary Gygax's Castle Zagyg

    You're right, I am guessing -- I guess it depends on what is handled via probate and what is mediated or what is handled by separate civil action. It could be something of mutual agreement, or it could come later. The biggest direct fees will involve the PR and discovery as they need to assess...

    D&D General Luke Gygax Brings Back Gary Gygax's Castle Zagyg

    Keep in mind, there are potentially three attorney's involved -- the ones Luke hired, the ones Gail hired, and the court appointed executor who is also an attorney. The case started in Spring of 2020. Back in 2008-2010, a case with some friends of mine with a trademark issue ended up costing...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    I think the Will was clear and spelled out, based on what others have said. The only flaw you could argue on Gary's end is it not being filled or handed over to an attorney in advance. You're making an assumption that Gary was mostly interested in pleasing his licensees or thought of his IP or...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    Regarding the will -- I doubt it, unless there was a change in plan that was never notarized. The IP question to me is complex. Do I think Gary would have expected what happened to happen? No, I doubt it. Do I think Gary would have been okay with his designated heirs doing whatever they...

    D&D General Luke Gygax and Troll Lord Games news Wednesday Aug 23rd 2023

    If they truly want to fulfill Gary's wishes for the IP like they say, they will publish that at some point. He favored that over Castle Zagyg. And if you are looking for pure Gary other than just benefiting the co-writers more, that's where the most material is. I hope they someday we see the...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    Well, it looks like the IP is a bit in play, which surprises me I'm guessing the executors are looking at the work and comparing what Luke wants to do with it, with the fact that Gail has done nothing of financial value with it, and from a financial perspective I suspect the argument is that...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    I think to also be clear, this statement is vague. He already had rights to use his own name. Gail never concerned herself with his recent product, or Ernie's as well. It was using the surname by itself and attempting to trademark it. If he made this statement, perhaps he believes Gail won't...

    E. Gary Gygax Sr. May Have Had Another, More Recent Will?

    And I responded to the best of my knowledge. Neither of us has really posted in this thread in a few years. Based on your last response, I wasn't even sure if you read the court case at all and you were just reading Alzarius' summaries of them, so I responded as such, with the best of my...
