Farewell

Gary Gygax (photo by Alan De Smet)

Ernest Gary Gygax passed away, he was co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons.

Roleplaying is something all of us do in childhood (playing cowboys, astronauts, detectives, heroes, and so on). Gygax created one of the most successful roleplaying systems for adult people (or maybe people affected by Peter Pan syndrome), a system later used in countless videogames.

May your journey continue somewhere else, Mr Gygax.
