Ernie Gygax’s home burned down.on February 20, 2013 at 11:19 AM
Ernie Gygax, Jr., who’s been making headlines for the launch of Gygax magazine, lost his home to a fire. That page (which has lots of autoplay ads, apologies)
has links to a PayPal relief fund says a PayPal account for donations will be set up soon, as well as the thankful news that Ernie is fine. I can only imagine what relics of gaming history went up in the blaze, but the important thing is that no lives were lost.
