D&D Creator Gary Gygax RIP

Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) creator Gary Gygax passed away. The game he co-created is iconic. On a personal level, it gave me a lot of very fun late nights with people who are now very good friends. I've never met him, but I feel like I've lost something.

Wired has this piece which is, unsurprisingly, more informative than the AP wire piece: Gary Gygax, 'Father of D&D,' Dies at 69

I like what Raincoaster said: RIP Gary Gygax

Summoner Geeks

This video has been around for a long time, now, and it still comes up in conversation at least once a year! Just the other day someday dropped a quote ("I cast a spell") in IM, prompting a barrage of other quotes involving Mountain Dew, Cheetos and attacking the darkness. I had to re-watch the video for old times sake. Rather than locate it on my hard drive I checked to see if it had been loaded to YouTube (What does that say?). To my delight, it had.

For anyone that's played D&D, this usually brings back some great memories. If you're interested in its history, check out this Wikipedia entry: Dead Alewives - Dungeons and Dragons Sketch. Behold the greatness of the Summoner Geek video.
