Gary Gygax dead at 69

Gary Gygax, the inventor of Dungeons & Dragons, has died aged 69. Gary's was the first name we memorised journo-style because we actually wanted to, as opposed to being forced to by education, from a book about D&D bought from a school library book sale. He created D&D in 1974 with Dave Arneson.

Bye, man. Good luck.
