Ernest Gary Gygax

27 July 1938 4 March 2008

Gary Gygax passed away in his home at the age of 69. Gygax was the co-creator of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. His innovation created an entirely new type of hobby that now attracts millions of players worldwide to face-to-face and online roleplaying games. Gary was a grand storyteller reknowned for his unique style, sprawling "Gygaxian" adventures, and the fantastic World of GreyHawk. He inspired generations of players, designers, and authors, and he will be sorely missed by legions of fans. I wish the sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
