  • Gary Gygax -1 HP

    Dungeons & Dragons co-creator dies at 69



    By EMILY FREDRIX
    Associated Press Writer

    A sad day for fans of role-playing games: The man who co-created Dungeons & Dragons is dead.

    Gary Gygax died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva, Wis. His wife Gail says the 69-year-old had been suffering from health problems for several years.

    Gygax and Dave Arneson developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice eventually was turned into video games, books and movies.

    It's considered the grandfather of fantasy role-playing games and has inspired legions of adoring fans. Gygax's wife says he always enjoyed hearing from them.

          To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

              Yeah I heard about this but couldn't find an article. Sad day for old school D&D players. I freely admit I am one such. I went to Lake Geneva once for a con, met Mr. Gygax. He was a pretty cool guy.
