Gary Gygax was born today in 1938 – let’s give him an honor roll!

Today marks what would have been Gary Gygax’s 71st birthday.  Let’s all grab our favorite dice, pause a moment to think about RPG’s and how much Gary influenced everything we do with them, and then give him an honor roll.  Feel free to report any Natural 20’s here.

  1. It should be noted that *Gary’s Honor Roll* is typically observed at noon. Our mission is to make the world STOP.

    *Gary’s Honor Roll* was concieved just after his death in 2008. Last year, one person reported a natural maximum roll on EACH of the 6 dice. We’re not sure what it means, but perhaps he is Gary reborn!

    We can but hope.

    Also we have a Facebook page for anyone interested!

  2. Charlie,

    I thought about that, but noon by who’s clock? I have a lot of readers in Britain and Europe for whom noon has already passed, and I didn’t want to leave them out.

  3. Ah, but that the beauty of it! Each time zone is going to have its own perfect time of celebration. It will be 24 hours (on the hour) of dice rolling!

    A fitting tribute!
