The Wheel Turns...

I just got an e-mail from my friend, Ernie, saying that his father had died.

That is, Ernest Gary Gygax, Jr., has just informed me that his father, co-author of "Dungeons & Dragons", and gaming industry patriarch E. Gary Gygax, has died. He would have been 70 years old in July.

Details will follow as they are available.

I had the privilege of sitting across the table from him (playing board games, never an RPG) on a number of occasions. He was grouchy, funny, and scary good at every game I ever saw him play, even if he had never seen it before.
