Gary Gygax, 'Father of D&D,' Dies at 69
By Lore Sjoberg Email

Gary Gygax, one of the co-creators of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, according to Stephen Chenault, CEO of Troll Lord Games.
Gygax designed the original D&D game with Dave Arneson in 1974, and went on to create the Dangerous Journeys and Lejendary Adventure RPGs, as well as a number of board games. He also wrote several fantasy novels.

Some of my best memories are playing D&D with my friends, from teenage years all the way up to present day. I'm glad Mr. Gygax had the imagination to create such a great game that would last all these years and inspire so many other games. Thank you Mr. Gygax for all the fun and memories.

    It is my understanding that he is to be buried at the foothills of the mountains outside the Free City of Greyhawk.
