My teenage years were either greatly enhanced or totally ruined by him, depending on how you view it. However you look at it though, he was a big influence in my life, and will be missed.

I started playing D&D in the early 80s and that jumpstarted me to try many others. He was a big reason we have these games.

R.I.P. Mister Gygax.

Alas D&D 4 is a sad mutilation of the creation of GG. Hopefully his spirit wil live through other productions.

Among others, there exists his own Lejendary Adventures. I think to look at it one day - though lately I prefer EarthDawn for fantasy RPGs.

I'm not that much on D&D either, but GG did much for RPG players in general. He is kind of a first stone in the cathedral you know, symbolic and all, that's why I'm offended with what DD4 is. (some kind of MMO crap, to me at least, seeking 'perfect balance' whilst killing the fun. Pen & Paper is just not adapted to play like a MMO : first, normally, you're with friends around a P&P table, so no real need for a competitive system, uh ? )

My bro claims that D&D 3.5 'Pathfinder' by Paizo is quite good. Better balanced and way more fun than 4. I haven't played for a pretty long time, though...

RIP GG.
