The Man, the Myth, the Legend, Gary Gygax today would have celebrated his 78th birthday had he not, sadly, died on March 4th of 2008, a day I will remember for eternity.

Ernest Gary Gygax (/ˈɡaɪɡæks/ gy-gaks) (July 27, 1938 – March 4, 2008)[2] was an American game designer and author best known for co-creating with Dave Arneson the pioneering role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). Gygax has been described as the father of D&D.[3]

Some quotes:

Random chance plays a huge part in everybody's life

There's a call to adventure. It's something in the inner psyche of humanity

The secret we should never let the gamemasters know is that they don't need any rules

Gary is someplace far and distant battling ancient evils for all good and feasting with his companions, God speed Gary. You were a boon to our species and will never be forgotten.

Thanks for the reminder. I will now start up Oblivion again and return to the modder's tribute to Gygax
RIP E Gary Gygax , you brought lots of fun filled hours around the table with friends...
