According to a post on Troll Lord Games, the company that had published his most recent work, Gary Gygax, creator of Dungeons & Dragons, has passed away

I first, and last met Gary at Imaginecon 2000. People either loved him or hated him, but that ex-insurance salesman created a game phenomenon that gave me a solace from my horrible home life. His D&D gaming system taught me valuable lessons in statistics, personnel management, writing humor, and group therapy.

Dude. So sad.
