Dungeons & Dragons Creator Gary Gygax Passes Into Another Realm at 69

Gary Gygax, one of the co-creators of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Gygax designed the original D&D game with Dave Arneson in 1974, and went on to create the Dangerous Journeys and Legendary Adventure RPGs (Role Playing Games), as well as a number of board games. He also wrote several fantasy novels.

The link on BoingBoing has a comprehensive interview with Gygax done in 2003 that provides great detail about the foundation and scope of his marvelous creation. As Joel Johnson said there: “Tiamat consume you fully, Gary. You brought untold amount of fun and joy into my life.”

And millions around the world.
