Looks like he rolled a 1.
Thanks for all the fun and inspiration Mr Gygax, I salute you!
You must not leave until you free Arlos and have gathered your party safely in this hallway.
I owe him many thanks for untold hours of letting my imagination seek new heights. Mt Dew owes him a thanks for all the money they made off us gamers that wanted to be up all night, pizza places, and of course the whole gaming industry owes him a debt of gratitude....where would we be without his inspiration.
All the games, the books, the movies....
I hope the afterlife is everything he envisioned!

Well, I'm Irish so... Gary, this one's for you! Thanks for all the good times, past and future. Cheers!
BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.
Gary Gygax, the father of the role-playing game. I think we all owe him a big thank you. Rest in peace.
Dear Mr Gygax,
I know you met millions of nerds in your life, but meeting you in Atlanta was a rare opportunity that I still cherish. Thank you for the hundreds of hours of mind blowing (and several hundred boring) adventure, your impact on the world will be remembered for generations.

Never has so much nerddom been been owed by so many, to so few
I for one wouldn't be where I am today if it had not been for D&D. I got the first boxed set from my grandmother for christmas at the age of 8 and never looked back. It sparked my imagination and creative thinking that has driven me throughout my life.
I personally believe the afterlife is what you make of it. So I hope he's up there exploring Sigil and avoiding the gaze of the Lady of Pain.
Best wishes to his friends and family as well.
Gary Gygax dead??!!
Can I have yer stuff???
rest in peace Gary, you helped alot of us navigate through troubled waters...
It's incredible to think how much of an influence he had on so many games. Of course now it seems obvious that if you're attacking someone you would calculate their strength, your defense, and some random chance of hitting them, but there was a time when no one had thought of that. And now it seems so ubiquitous that it's difficult to think how it would be done otherwise. What a paradigm shift. Wow.
We'll miss you

He’ll certainly be missed. I wasted MANY an afternoon with friends bickering over minutiae because of him!
But I think we all know he’s running around with the "Vice Presidential Action Rangers" (lead by Al Gore, with Stephen Hawking, Nichelle Nichols, Gary Gygax and Deep Blue)
may he rest in peace
MMO wish list:
-Changeable worlds-Solid non level based game-Sharks with lasers attached to their heads
† Rest in Peace, Gary Gygax †
he shall me missed greatly...
One of the few people who you can truely say influenced FAR too many people near and far around the world, across multiple platforms.
He was truely one of the great ones.....
Thanks for showing us how important it is to have a vivid imagination.
wow this is pretty heart breaking. I remember as a kid at the age of 10 in '80 getting started with D&D playing with my older brother because they lacked party members and was hooked on the first day.
The name Gygax was on everything we read and played for the game.
oh well.. Heres to ya!
sigh. the original dungeon master is gone. the entire video game industry owes him. without his influence
most of us would not call ourselves gamers. the entire world of mmorpg might not exist.
1d4+1 moment of silence.
With reason You drew, with honor you sheathed. Rest In Peace.
