Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, was found dead in his home in the morning of March 4th. He was 69.
Gary is in many ways the father of modern RPG's. He helped create the biggest, and best, paper and pen game on the planet. And most RPG's today bear his mark in some way, every computer based games. Without him, the land of fantasy would not be so bright, so magical, and it wouldn't be the dream we all wish would came true.
Now that is I call a legacy.
EDIT: I now cast 21 Magic Missile Salute!
