Shame on me!


I'm late for my tribute to Gary Gygax, who passed away five years ago, on March 4th, 2008.

The game, hobby and industry Gary helped create have been a significant part of my life and I'm comfortable assuming I would have turned out not half as good as I am now if not for Dungeons & Dragons.  I owe a great deal to this man I've never met.

I think the plaque from Gencon 2008 speaks well for all of us who appreciate Gary's legacy:

The first DM,
He taught us to roll the dice.
He opened the door to new worlds.
His work shaped our industry.
He brought us Gen Con,
For this we thank him.

In fond memory of Gary Gygax
and in celebration of his spirit and accomplishments.
