Gygax Memorial Fund needs your help

The Gygax Memorial Fund is attempting to raise funds for a monument in Lake Geneva.

From their announcement:

Gail Gygax, widow to the late and great Gary Gygax, and crew have established a non-profit organization to help raise funds in order to get a monument for Gary Gygax erected in Lake Geneva WI. Anyone who knows anything about gaming, particularly tabletop RPGs, knows this is a no-brainer. Gary, along with Dave Arenson, developed the original D&D that we all cherish and love.

Gary went on to develop and publish countless timeless works that did nothing short but inspire anyone that’s picked a set of those odd shaped dice.

You can show your support by giving some back to the legend by using the donate button on the fund’s website. While you’re there leave a short testimonial on how Gary touched your life.

    I think a memorial fund, supporting school gaming groups for socially endangered youth would do more to cherish the man’s memory, share the love of RPGs and generally do good. Alas, it’s a personal choice of the organizer and we sure love our monuments.

    Too bad most video/computer gamers don’t realize how much Gygax influenced that hobby as well.

      Seriously. Blizzard and EA should be fighting over who gets to foot the entire bill.

  • I’d like to see a statue like the one set up for Ronnie James Dio.
