Mr. E. Gary Gygax, the gaming world's version of J.R.R. Tolkien, passed away yesterday.
Mr. Gygax was best known for creating “Dungeons and Dragons”, the progenitor of nearly every fantasy game – be it board, pen and paper, or electronic.
Here at work we are observing 2d6 minutes of silence in his honor. The HR director will roll the dice at 8:30am this morning, make the announcement, and we will go dark around here for a bit.
Godspeed Mr. Gygax, you'll be missed.
