Going to take a moment here.

Gary Gygax is dead.

The man was primarily responsible for D&D which has since childhood how I spent a good deal of time with my friends. The industry I work in was heavily influenced by what he did. The man despite his flaws at times left a mark on a lot of people. For that alone he deserves a moment.

I am going to play some D&D tonight. Seems only right.

Thought you wouldd appreciate this:
The Empty Chair

Eulogy for a Gamer

There is an empty chair,
at the table this day.
A hallowed place where,
a friend once played.
The roll of his dice,
my ears long to hear.
Or perhaps it would suffice,
if he should suddenly appear.
With character sheet in hand,
and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
All his friends would stand,
as he sat in the empty chair.
I hear his voice a-callin’,
and it ties my heart in a knot.
For he cries, “Though a comrade has fallen,
You must play for those who cannot.”
We conquered worlds on the run,
he and I in the name of fun.
And as others may come and go,
I make both both friend and foe.
But what I long for most,
is our past now long a ghost.
