Missed saving throw

Gary Gygax, inventor of D&D, has died. Phelps 1d4 + 1 moments of silence, please

Chris knew the man.

In middle school, his game provided me with many nights of enjoyment. Godspeed, Gary.

    My brother and cousin tried a couple of times to force me to play Dungeons & Dragons. I kept trying to “roll for Wookiee”, so they dropped me, I guess.

    I ended up playing Ultima Online, though. It was kind of like Dungeons & Dragons, but with far more retarded players.

    End of an era – I never played a game written directly by him (my RPG hobby started just a tad too late), but without him I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun in College, and probably wouldn’t have met my wife (yeah – eat your heart out, geeks, I met my wife playing RPGs 🙂 )

    Spent many many weekend nights playing this with my roomies when I should have been out chasing girls….

    We eventually learned that inviting one or two girls to play worked well as a pickup method. The girls would get bored immediately and would leave with the inviter – “to go do something more fun” like take a moonlit walk around the campus gardens.

    While D&D overall inhibited my social life, being able to recite reams of Monty Python dialog actually got me laid. Go figure….

    He ran out of hit points.
