Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, died on Tuesday morning in his home. The news was reported first in the forums of Troll Lord Games, publishers of Gygax's "Lejendary Adventures and Castles & Crusades" books. His son Ernie Gygax broke the news to the community.

Obviously, Search Engine Watch played a very small role in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Yet the Web changed gaming forever and the passing of board games into the digital realm was noted here.

Rolling dice? Replaced by clicking mice.

On November 16, 2005, Zach Rodgers of Search Engine Watch - in the "Midweek Blog Potables" roundup - noted the transition of D&D to an online game.

Zach wrote, "The buzz continues on Dungeons & Dragons' move to the Web. The original RPG (role-playing game) brand joins the online pack. Could be a great comeback story or a tower of suckitude."
