That blows. As a reformed D&D nerd, I always remembered seeing his name predominantly on all of the rulebooks, modules, awesome cartoons, etc. (a la Gene Roddenberry) and thinking, "Man, this guy must be loaded. All my nerd friends play his games." (Then TSR sold D&D to Wizards of the Coast and it got treated like crap for years until recently.) Godspeed.

Because of the whole 3rd edition -- 3.5 edition fiasco, most of my gaming friends have given up on them, and I don't blame them.

That is a huge bummer.

Many of the games from his company (D&D, Top Secret, Marvel Heroes Role Playing game) were a big part of my weekends in High School, so he will be missed by me. Thanks for the entertainment and the good memories Mr. Gygax.

Well, he had been sick for a while. Obviously he didn't stabilize before he hit -10HP.

I bought a 3.5 Player's Handbook when they first came out, and I STILL haven't played D&D.

I hear that 4th edition is coming out somewhere in June. I haven't played since 1st edition AD&D was the only advanced edition. I refuse to play $200+ to get all the core rules and then $30-$90 a month for the 3 or so books they put out every month.

I'm a completest and I know I'd HAVE to get them all, even though I'd probably never have to use all of them in any campaign.

As a younger gent, I was introduced to 3rd edition and that's where I began five of the most creative years of my life. I've since reformed but the spirit of pretend that game gave me help me through the roughest part of my young life and ultimately help me find what I want to do in life (theatre, dnd with formal audiences).

So, I feel in immense debt to this awesome man. A shame, a true shame.
