Gygax probably just gave up on living after the news of 4th ed was coming out. Just took him this long to go...

Heading to the back yard and to bury a set of dice Sad

Clipped this from the wire. I actually remember this. Classic

Quote :
My favorite story about him was during the 80s, when D&D was subject to many accusations of Satanism and other such garbage, and he was on a TV talk show (like an opposing viewpoints type thing) with some idiot was attacking the game, and he said that the only people who could possibly have any problems with the game would have to be people with prior serious psychological disturbances.

So the idiot, realizing he’s being out-argued but defending his idiocy, says something like “But couldn’t such a disturbed person use the game to harm themselves or other people?”

And Gygax says “Yes, but couldn’t the same disturbed person also use a chair, any chair, say the one I’m sitting in now, and bash someone over the head with it? So now let’s all ban chairs, because someone might get hurt.”
