    RIP Gary Gygax

    Gary Gygax, inventor of Dungeons and Dragons, has died.

    Gary, we hardly knew ye. No, really, we had no idea who you were until you died. Nerds everywhere are mourning the loss and wistfully reminiscing over the precious hours they spent in D&D fantasyland instead of actually having to connect with real people.

    Editorial note: Whoa! You've found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn't really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we're leaving it up as a part of our early history.
