My brother's response:
So much for sales of the Immortals Rules...

We're getting a family deal on tickets to hell apparently.

I played the original (Basic, Master, Companion, Master, Immortal) set, but never AD&D... also Middle Earth Role Playing (which had a great set of rules) and Top Secret:SI (which was just plain awesome).

Bren R.

Wow.
There's not many people that may even remember that one Bren. It was rather short lived.
One can always find a good online resource for them now though.

Great stuff.

My own experience with tabletop RPGs is extremely limited. Being a huge Star Wars nerd, I played the Star Wars RPG, but if my dad had his way, I wouldn't have even played that. There were some good times, and some arguments. Overall, I thought it was nice mental exercise, and I wish I'd done a little more.

I think my best friend still plays different RPGs when he gets together with his brother. His brother has quite a few shelves full of RPG books, and I think it's pretty much a weekly affair.

Someone at work is also still heavy into D&D and Warhammer, and he's 33 or so. After he got married, he was thinking about giving up gaming upon turning 30. Hearing him talk about his quests can get a little old at times, but still, he enjoys it, and I told him that if he enjoys it, he should continue. When it comes down to it, he's a responsible guy and doesn't neglect his wife, so I see nothing wrong with him spending time on a hobby he enjoys.

Anyway, Gary Gygax's contributions to gaming are apparently going to live on for a long time. It's an impressive legacy to leave behind, and I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

RIP Gary. \:\(

His first game of his I got was “Chainmail” followed quickly by the original D&D boxed set. Must have played almost every role-play game from the 70’s because of him, but due to cost finally specialized in D&D, Traveler, Chivalry & Sorcery, and Runequest. Wrote my 1st computer program on our high school mainframe to generate D&D encounters for my world. Ended up in college in the SCA doing live action D&D in the tunnels below the dorms at Oregon State. Major geek action here but it was worth it Gary!
