The original post @Troll Lord Games

Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons and one of the fathers of tabletop role-playing games, died on Tuesday at the age of 69. He had suffered from heart problems.

The news was first announced on the message board of Troll Lord Games, the publisher of Gygax's most recent works. It has since been directly confirmed by the company, which will post an announcement on its Web site later Tuesday.

Much respect for him for him and his work . . . I think more people than would care to admit have had some kind of interaction with D&D over the years - a tragic and sombering loss . . .

He will be missed. I have his Greyhawk books (the 1st 2) as well as the ones by Rose Estes. I also have his Gord the Rogue novels that he continued on his own, after the first 2 Greyhawk Books. An excellent author and very creative Man - R.I.P.
