Remembering Gygax, Creator of Our “Demented and Sad, But Social” World

Gary Gygax

As everyone knows, Gygax passed away last week. We gave our own remembrance in the last Weekend Justice. Adam Rogers, senior editor from Wired, published a piece in the New York Times that makes the following argument:
