Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, has passed away. He and Dave Arneson developed the game in 1974. He is survived by his wife and six children. His death was the result of long-declining health conditions. He will be missed.
Came across these links elsewhere on the net. This was another Role Playing Game that I used to play when I was younger. The manual is lacking materials (ie the map, the intro adventure and the counters for the map) but you should be able to wing it from there.
A quick plug for Ninja Burger as well as the Charlotte Transit category here on the blog since Google’s spiders can’t see it too well. The video, found after the break, got a chuckle out of me as well.

Breakfast was cool. Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits. I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind.

And I’ve already gone ahead and added to the links page. You can look at the other webcomics that I read there.
Another new webcomic added to the link list. We have added in Norwick. It’s Dungeons and Dragons based, having appeared for eons in the old Dragon Magazine that’s now currently changing formats.
New comics appear to hit once a week. Not sure of the day and I’m
too tired to go digging around the website. (Plus the designer appears
to like opening link in new windows. I hate it when sites are
designed like that.)
The comic is about a simple henchman who travels with three characters
but runs into all sorts of trouble, normally because of the actions of
