Oh wait even better the tag line says

"Role-playing game used medieval characters and creatures, many-sided dice"

So how about the few sided dice? We didn't use those?

No one uses the D12. It cries itself to sleep.

Here's proof: T-shirt!

That's so sad!! Poor little D12. I always liked the D12. But I suppose I didn't use it very often. On the other hand I would wear the numbers off my D20 and had to always get more ...

This is sad news. Within the past few years I've become a DnD gamer.

Yeah I don't think I've ever even rolled a D12. Love the t-shirt.

Well, I did roll the corners off a lot of d20 dice, but still have my trusty d4 dice from the old days.

I've given up expecting the general press to get anything right in any niche!

Gary's passing was oddly predicted in the Knights of the Dinner Table comic, where they killed off their version of him a while back.

I was sharing this news with my fellow geeks.

One quipped, "He must have rolled a 1."

We all chuckled - I think Gary would appreciate that.

He's probably laughing where ever he's at!

I have to admit, I never was one to be a fan of the creators of systems, but Gary's death signals for me the changing of an age...there aren't a lot of hobbies where some of the original creators such as Gary, or Ken St. Andre, are around, accessible, and friendly.

I have never played Dungeons and Dragons, but it is still sad to see a creative genius leave us.

To be honest i realized who this person was by your talking about him and all i can say is that we can only keep playing. I believe he would appreciate that even after his passing he left his mark and what he created was and still is in the benefit of people.
