Looks like he rolled a 1.

Thanks for all the fun and inspiration Mr Gygax, I salute you!

WOW.....

I owe him many thanks for untold hours of letting my imagination seek new heights. Mt Dew owes him a thanks for all the money they made off us gamers that wanted to be up all night, pizza places, and of course the whole gaming industry owes him a debt of gratitude....where would we be without his inspiration.

All the games, the books, the movies....

I hope the afterlife is everything he envisioned!

Gary Gygax, the father of the role-playing game. I think we all owe him a big thank you. Rest in peace.

The only difference between a Troll and a Fanboi is which side of the fence they stand on.

Dear Mr Gygax,

I know you met millions of nerds in your life, but meeting you in Atlanta was a rare opportunity that I still cherish.  Thank you for the hundreds of hours of mind blowing (and several hundred boring) adventure, your impact on the world will be remembered for generations.

Sincerely,

Luke "CaesarsGhost" Peterfreund

I for one wouldn't be where I am today if it had not been for D&D. I got the first boxed set from my grandmother for christmas at the age of 8 and never looked back. It sparked my imagination and creative thinking that has driven me throughout my life.

I personally believe the afterlife is what you make of it. So I hope he's up there exploring Sigil and avoiding the gaze of the Lady of Pain. :)

Best wishes to his friends and family as well.

It's incredible to think how much of an influence he had on so many games.  Of course now it seems obvious that if you're attacking someone you would calculate their strength, your defense, and some random chance of hitting them, but there was a time when no one had thought of that.  And now it seems so ubiquitous that it's difficult to think how it would be done otherwise.  What a paradigm shift.  Wow.

We'll miss you

He’ll certainly be missed.  I wasted MANY an afternoon with friends bickering over minutiae because of him!

 

But I think we all know he’s running around with the "Vice Presidential Action Rangers" (lead by Al Gore, with Stephen Hawking, Nichelle Nichols, Gary Gygax and Deep Blue)
