The co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons passed away this morning. He was 69. From the AP Article:
Gygax and co-creator Dave Arneson developed the role-playing game in 1974 and it went on to become one of the best-selling games ever. Dungeons & Dragons is considered the grandfather of fantasy role-playing games and has influenced video games, books, movies and inspired legions of adoring fans.
Undoubtedly, more later.
UPDATE: ICv2 has a nice obit that talks about the various legal battles surrounding GGG and DD.
