Gary died....

I'm glad I had the chance to meet him.

Even if you guys weren't really familiar with him or never played D&D, he was responsible for a lot of the popularity of fantasy and RPG games, and maybe things like the FvF mod wouldn't exist without Gygax.... He was the one who really popularized game concepts like Classes and Levels and role-playing games.
And he was just a very friendly guy who enjoyed interacting with other gamers, and was always happy to chat and sign autographs.

Sorry, man.

Yeah. I thought about posting here when I saw that.

Futurama won't be the same without him :P

That's a shame.

Did he look or seem ill when you went to visit him Gunter?

He seemed to be doing well last summer:

Aside from his chronic heart problem, he had taken a fall in December, and that had not helped matters....


Oh yeah, I did get this picture of a note in his curio cabnet from Futurama:
