I've just learned that Gary Gygax, Father of Dungeons & Dragons, has just past away. The gaming world owes so much to this one figure, there's no way to properly define it all - Dungeons & Dreamers will give you a hint. I spent so many hours in D&D books as a teenager, none of which would have been possible without this man.
There are two figures who stood out for me during my teenage years, and now, with Gary Gygax passage, both are gone. The other was Isaac Asimov, Father of the Three Laws of Robotics and prolific science fiction and science writer.
I'm saddened to see him go, but I know that his legacy will stay with us for years to come.
Go in peace, and fly safe dear old friend.
