I CAST MAGIC MISSLE!
Note: This post is completely unrelated to anything close to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing or any other martial art, unless you count the Monk class in 3rd Edition.
I feel that, ridiculously wild tangent though this entire post may be, I would be seriously remiss in my duties as a nerd (for you see, besides my fiancee, and BJJ, the other great love of my life is role-playing games) if I did not take the time to make a blog mourning the passing of one Mr. Ernest Gary Gygax.
The co-creator of the epic and marvelously fantastic game Dungeons & Dragons, Gary sadly left this life on March 4, 2008. He leaves behind an unimaginably spectacular legacy of great games inspired by his part-brainchild. He is mourned by his family, which includes millions of other nerds around the world.
Fare thee well, Master Gygax. Wherever you are, may you roll maximum damage for your fireballs, and may all your attacks be critical hits.
Rest in peace.
Ernest Gary Gygax (July 27, 1938 – March 4, 2008)
