Today seems a good day to remember this. I met Gary Gygax once. He was a guest at a UK GenCon in the nineties. I queued up for hours to meet him (my mates weren’t bothered). He signed my programme and I thanked him for giving me my lifelong passion. I asked him if he still played at all. He said mostly Chainmail when he got the chance. A true gent, I was honoured to have spent a few minutes with him.
