Sarlona holds Gygax memorial
I had nothing to do with organization of the event, and I'm sure better images will be forthcoming. But I was there, and strangely, it helped. Yes it was a digital memorial, inside a video game, but still, it helped. Maybe seeing it will help you too.
There wasn't a lot of notice and there wasn't a lot of publicity but word still spread. The service began in the Temple of the Sovereign Host. Words were read from Gygax's bio and there was a (long) moment of silence. One of my guildies played "Amazing Grace" over our voice chat... it was a very good choice.
The group formed a processional and circled the Marketplace.
The processional made its way to Delera's Graveyard.
Everyone said their goodbyes. Some more privately than others.
I found it to be a fitting and appropriate way to honor this particular man. I never met him but I still think he would be pleased.
Thanks to Octavionn for putting this together.
AND what?? time was the big round UP/??
last night around 7pm some person sent short tells to knell, but no real reson why to do so. there should have been a better anouncement on the LFMs or something. and ummm Look to the DDO game news. just today there is a addvertizement for a invasion in the market. BUT nothing about a real life news awareness of D&D games. those who tell us about game news almost every day have NOTHING to say about gary gygax?? yes we have to put what little new we can get on the forums our self. or make a funeral prossession in game.
