In a sad day for all roleplayers in the world, Gary Gygax, inventor of Dungeons and dragons, passed away yesterday at the age of 69. His visions paved the way for todays acceptance of RPGs and supplied me (though not an D&D player) with countless hours of enjoyment, long days and longer nights with my friends and an outlet for my creativity.
I am now officially retiring my 'lucky' D6 in his honour. My first roll in my upcoming RPG session will be made with a symbolic black D10.
May he rest in peace.
