The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Gary Gygax Fails His Saving Throw

Posted on Tuesday, March 4 @ 21:30:11 PST by Duke_Ferris
For many of us old school gamers, today is a bad day because we must say goodbye to Gary Gygax. For the younger folks, Gary was the creator of Dungeons & Dragons and you owe him for every RPG you've ever played.

He died today at his home of heart complications.

I still remember the long nights rolling dice at my friend Timmer's house after he got that first basic set. We ended up with all the gear from painted miniatures to our own modules, dungeons and scenarios meticulously crafted on graph paper.

When we got older, groups of us would gather at different places to play, but my favorite was the meeting room at Body Glove which had beer on tap, and which we could use because Greg's father was the president.

I know what happened to most of those guys (thanks, internet!). One is a database programmer I still see regularly, one is now a professor of Philosophy, one is some sort of rollerblade stuntrider, one is dead, one got rich at Microsoft, one is mentally disturbed and lives with his mom, and yet another is a surgeon in Texas. I don't know if any of them still play any pen-and-paper games, I stopped in college.

But I transferred my time and even part of my career to playing electronic RPG's, and I love them to this day, from the directly related Neverwinter Nights, to the distant relatives like EVE Online.

Thanks, Gary. I'll be pouring out some mead in your honor.
