“The Day the Music (of the Dice) Died”


Let all those who heed this call know that today a Legend passes on.
Or, to put it another way; we all gotta run out of h.p. some day…
At the grand age (or, er, level?) or 69, Gary Gygax is dead.
Millions – I really mean MILLIONS – of people rolled dice and laughed, visiting strange and magical lands of the imagination.
All this, from the wizardly creation of Double-G and his early day comrades.
Rest in Peace, First DM.

But… in the flavor of The Big Lebowski, for every roll of 1, the dice also come around to a 20, and there is News!

I just don’t really know how to say it yet!
So I will smile and let the moments be.
I hear the go by fast.

“…As you pass thru the Light, the world seems more beautiful. Your weapons and gear from before are absent, but in their stead you feel peace and a sense of child like wonder”
No gear, Huh? Sneaky portal… Ok! Must be something around here worth some XPs. I wanna roll for initiative! ……..(um, where did I put those dice…)
