Gary Gygax

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.
