I don’t have anything original to say on the death of Gary Gygax. I know everyone else has heard the story already. There were many comments and several emails (thanks!) about the story yesterday, and my mention is late in coming. Still, it seems odd to run a site called Twenty Sided and not at least comment in some way, even if I have nothing deep or meaningful to add.
