This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Many of you probably discovered it long ago (possibly years ago) but I just now ran across it.

Gary Gygax was an active user on the enworld forums, under the user name Col_Pladoh. Enworld archived a number of threads where Gary answered all sorts of questions and shared his wisdom with the community.

I wish I had found this while he was alive so that I could have talked with him.

If you go to the Enworld Archived Threads Forum you will find a number of these threads (13 unless I’ve missed some) plus all sorts of other gems that enworld thought were valuable enough to preserve.

To make them easier to find, I’ve compiled a list of links to all of the ‘Ask Gary’ threads :
