Gary Gygax (July 27, 1938 – March 4, 2008)

E. Gary Gygax, the creator of Dungeons & Dragons, passed away today. It's somehow fitting that the original Dungeon Master passed away on what has become known over the past few years in the gaming industry as "GM's Day", a day to thank your DM/GM for the games they run. Without Gary, there would not be any of us who consider ourselves DMs. I'm glad I got to meet Gary last year at GenCon, shake his hand, and thank him for the fun times I've had over the years playing D&D.

Again, thanks for all the good times Gary.
