Many of us here at Blizzard got our start in gaming with Dungeons & Dragons or one of its computer adaptations
and have fond memories of rolling dice, poring over rulebooks, braving dark caverns and castle keeps, battling
kobolds and hill giants. Gary Gygax’s work on D&D was an inspiration to us and in many ways helped spark our
passion for creating games of our own. As avid D&D players and fellow game developers, we were all saddened by
the news of his passing; we feel we’ve lost a true adventuring companion. Thanks for everything and farewell,
Gary. You will be missed.
