    For all the mockery of D&D players, Gygax's game was a major influence on culture.

    Phew. I was fully expecting him to suffocate from a mightily constipated dragon taking a dump on him.

    He's playing D&D with Al Gore, Nichelle Nichols and Deep Blue in post-universe limbo now.

    The surprise I found out at the end is that he didn't die a virgin.
