A great man has left our ranks – a man who created a world, nay, WORLDS that were accessible to millions, limited by only our imagination, our weekly allowance/pocket money/whatever, and of course how long our parents would let us stay out playing with 20-sided dice.

Yes, my friends, Gary Gygax has fallen.

The legendary creator of the Dungeon Master’s Guide, the tome from which countless hours of imagined explorations, quests, and journeys were spawned – and arguably the wellspring from which World of Warcraft and it’s brethren sprang – has run out of hitpoints and shuffled off this mortal coil.

update: it appears he may still be fighting this one, according to xkcd.com
