MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gary Gygax, who co-created the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons and is widely seen as the father of the role-playing games, died Tuesday. He was 69

Gygax developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice became a hit, particularly among teenage boys, and eventually was turned into video games, books and movies.

At first I thought, Nice! He's got a string of ears tied to his weapon...badass!
Then I looked closer and saw it was gay.

His armor looks cool though.
