Gary Gygax (legendary creator of Dungeons & Dragons) passed away this morning at home. He had been in poor health lately suffering multiple strokes and a near heart-attack. Rumours on the internet are claiming he didn't make his saving throw vs. death when a Beholder entered his bedroom and won initiative. I don't think there is any truth to this rumour. In fact I know so, seeing as I started it.

Thanks Gary for creating a game which has brought a ton of enjoyment to my world.

"Okay, wiseguy, now please, for
the last time, give me back my dice bag?"

The Onion's commentary on the subject is excellent.
