Has it really been a year? Has it only been a year?
I know for many, including myself, Gygax's death was like the tolling of a bell, calling us back to the foundational roots of the hobby. A year ago, I had largely left D&D behind. Now it's practically all I run, play, or talk about. I started this blog, as did many of the other bloggers I read today, in the wake of his death. I just felt like I needed an outlet for all the thoughts and ideas that had been sparked by my personal gaming renaissance. As sad as Gary's passing is, I think it's pretty special--dare I say magical?--that even in his death he continued to be an inspiration.
Thanks for everything, Gary. Even Mythus.
