Very sad. My life would have been very different if it hadn't been for mr Gygax and his wonderful game :)

Well when I think of D&D , only one name comes to mind(habit I never knew of Dave before I met Rafael and joined the Blackmoor site) and that is Gary Gygax. No offense to Dave or his fans. RIP Gary.

As I said on DF, from the little I knew Mr Gygax from online chat,
I learned he was a very friendly person, with great patience and wit.

I know that among us nerds, there was always a habit similar to "you can't be a Gygaxian D&D fan if you're an Arnesonian D&D fan", but that's just BS.

I highly respected Mr Gygax not only for his work, but because I came to know him as general all-around nice guy.
I am glad that I had the chance to chat with him ocassionally,
and I feel like I lost a friend in him.

QFT.

I have yet to meet a fan of Arneson who isn't also a fan of Gygax.

I love Blackmoor and the works of Dave Arneson, but Gary will truly missed. I feel that I owe him a great deal.

In a way, Gary has influenced my life more than any other person except for my parents.  I miss him.   :(

Let's try and think of an idea why we here can honour him in a special way.
Any ideas already?
