Gary Gygax

As several others have already reported, Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, died today. For a brief time in my life, say from about age 10-14, I played quite a bit of D&D. I stopped playing at about the time I started reading more, and noticing girls, but during the time that I did play, I always had a great time. Though I remember few details now, I can recall some of the modules I played fondly, “Keep on the Borderland”, and of course, my favorite, “Castle Amberville(?)”.
