Death, meet Gary

Adored this comic from xkcd. I can totally see Gary Gygax (July 27, 1938 - March 4, 2008) challenging Death to a game when they came face to face last Tuesday.

While I'm at it, don't miss the Order of the Stick tribute to Gygax. And you can be sure Wil Wheaton had something worth reading to say about him as well over at WWdN:In Exile.

Speaking as a geek who played tabletop RPGs, and now plays MMORPGs, I am deeply grateful to Gary for sharing his brand of magic with the world, and helping to make it a richer place for so many of us.
