Anyone got confirmation anywhere?
 
2008-03-04 12:20:00 PM
the google news, it says nothing about gary's supposed death....
 
2008-03-04 12:20:10 PM
This sucks.

/Will roll a D20 and drink some mead in his honor.

Take it for what's worth.


Man I hope this is wrong

RIP :(

Wow. There's a name I haven't heard in a while.
 
2008-03-04 12:27:12 PM
Anyone got a rez?

/too soon?
 
2008-03-04 12:27:20 PM
I'll miss you Gary.

I am ... (throws dice) saddened by his passing.
 
2008-03-04 12:27:58 PM
Anyone have a diamond worth at least 1000gp?
 
2008-03-04 12:28:01 PM

2008-03-04 12:28:16 PM
Gonna swing my +1 Longsword at an orc in his honor.
 
2008-03-04 12:28:40 PM
Thanks for all the halflings.
 
2008-03-04 12:28:40 PM
It's true.
 
2008-03-04 12:28:40 PM
Fark. Tonight I will have to dine on Hostess cupcakes and Jolt cola with tons of paper spread out all over the dining room table to mourn his passing.
 
2008-03-04 12:28:45 PM
Don't worry, Gary, there are 100,000 wizards right now casting a resurrect spell. You'll be back shortly as long as you can make your constitution roll to avoid insanity...
 
2008-03-04 12:28:48 PM
That is sad.

I guess it's up to Al Gore and Nichelle Nichols to keep the timeline of the universe intact.
 
2008-03-04 12:28:51 PM
Just cast Animate Dead spell on his corpse and he'll be good as new.
 
2008-03-04 12:29:03 PM
well.

i'm inclined to now think this might be true. my mother-in-law died of this (she had an aortic dissection from an aneurysm). it happens very suddenly.

and the site is FARKED right now.

damn.
 
2008-03-04 12:29:06 PM
The dice always win in the end.

Damn shame if this is true. Can't count all the time I wasted in Jr. High & High School because of him. :)
 
2008-03-04 12:29:15 PM
Cast resurrect?
 
2008-03-04 12:29:21 PM
+1 headline
+2 constitution (well maybe not Gary)

RIP D&D VIP

I put on my robe and.... no, I can't do it. I had too many good times playing his game, imperfect though it was.

Is there a cleric in the house?
 
2008-03-04 12:29:53 PM
Now I feel guilty for never actually having played D&D, despite being an avid RPG gamer in my youth.

Paranoia uber alles.

theFword: Just cast Animate Dead spell on his corpse and he'll be good as new.

Isn't there a constitution penalty?

It's as if billions of nerds suddenly cried out...

/nevermind, wrong dork reference...

Come on Gary, attack the darkness.

Resurrect! Resurrect!
 
2008-03-04 12:31:20 PM
A very carefully worded Wish is in order. Take care to avoid the Zombie Gygax outcome.
 
2008-03-04 12:31:21 PM
Well I'm just going to roleplay he is still alive.......

Here's to you, Gary, you created one of the best games a girl could ever play.

/pauses a moment in dice roll in mourning
 
2008-03-04 12:31:35 PM
Thank you Gary Gygax for teaching me words like dweomer and gelatinous.

Spent many hours reading D&D books and modules.
 
2008-03-04 12:31:42 PM
Somewhere in a box around here I've got the original manuals & a bunch of little metal dudes. Many an afternoon/weekend was spent with fellow dorks out in the garage arguing over stupid stuff & having a great time.

RIP if true & thanks for all the hours/days/years of fun.

/computers made bashing orcs so much easier
//still have the Steve Jackson Car Wars games around here somewhere as well
///my lawn - off

goodnight, nerdyman

I was in an elevator with him once in Evansville at a game convention.
A dorky kid got on and asked him about falling damage.
It was the living embodiment of a joke.
I was speechless.
 
2008-03-04 12:32:18 PM
He isn't really dead. He's just missing, in the tunnels beneath the school.
 
2008-03-04 12:32:31 PM
He puts on his robe and embalming hat...
