A family member lost.

Mar. 5th, 2008 | 10:41 am

Not the happiest way to start a log but it is one close to heart. E. Gary Gygax passed away yesterday.  He was one of the Icons that had a large impact on my life. I have been a gamer since that first blue boxed set came out and have never looked back. Looking through all the shelves and boxes that contains decades of gaming history all the originals had his name on it. His novels he wrote were mixed in with others like Tolkein, Lieber, Howard and Rice...

I am now extremely fortunate that I was able to finally go to Gen Con last year. I was able to meet and talk to him during the VIG dinner and the picture I took with him has a place on my shelf surrounded by the books of the game he helped create.  So, yes, I can say it feels like a member of the family is gone now.
