Z is for Zagyg
I'm not leaving Rob Kuntz's contribution to DnD out, but this post is about Gary. Obviously, both men created a hobby that has become very, very dear to me. Everything you are reading was inspired by their creation.
Without Zagyg seeking out licensors, I wouldn't have had DnD toys to play with or a cartoon to watch. While DnD and ADnD are central to me as a fan, his understanding of attracting young fans was essential to the growth of the hobby.
Gary's vision of fantasy is central to how I see it. The genre that DnD has become transcends the literary works that inspired it and in many cases outlasted them. In short, I wouldn't have ventured into a dungeon for the first time, without Zagyg's push.
Thank you Gary. May you continue to run your dungeon for the rest of eternity.
