E. Gary Gygax, 1938-2008

Today marks the fourth anniversary of the death of the grandfather of the roleplaying hobby.  He is perhaps best known as the co-creator of the Dungeons and Dragons game, the co-founder of TSR Hobbies, Inc., the author of the Gord the Rogue novels, and the creator of the world of Greyhawk and a multitude of fantastic characters.  But prior to the RPG craze, he was an avid wargamer and author of nearly a dozen different tabletop wargames and scenarios.

He is missed.  Rest well, Gary.
