Default get the dice out...

in memory of Gary Gygax...

D&D roll playing rules co-creator has died at the age of 69.

this is the guy that co-created the D&D rules for role play that pretty much all modern MMORPG games are based.

sad day, creative genius lost...

I almost feel like going to the library to get some D&D books out for sentimental reasons, (like I used to read those books all the while whilst I was younger).

oh damn, I'll be honest and say I never played D&D but I was into heaps of Warhammer when I was younger, the Warcry card game and a bit of Magic The Gathering but mostly WoW at the moment. How much do you think WoW owes to D&D? I haven't checked it out, I was probably too young.

Very sad, and at only 69.
