OMFG! The Gygax Memorial Fund page has been Updated!


Yep, that's the update.

No, there's no audit posted yet.

No, there's no news later than December, 2014.

No, there's no "call to arms" to demand the memorial be placed where Mrs. E. Gary Gygax want it placed.

No, there's no details on the bricks that are supposed to help pay for the yearly maintenance.

No, none of the minuscule amount amount of information that was provide via Facebook months ago has made it to the Gygax Memorial Fund's actual web page.

Instead you have a new pic of Mrs. E. Gary Gygax (remember, she NEVER refers to herself in that manner. Maybe the Fund's page was hacked. )

As an aside, my God the TSR office tunnel was gaudy as all hell. Really. It looks like a body scan machine for a Storm Giant.

    1. I rode through that thing when they still had it at Universal Studios in CA. Had to close my eyes because it almost made me vomit from vertigo.

  2. I believe the tunnel was thought when TSR acquired the building.

    1. Really? My understanding it was Q-Tip headquarters. Or did that happen after TSR moved out?

    2. And Zoids - you had taht tunnel constructed? lol. I guess it was the 70's

    3. You are both correct. The upper part of the structure was a cotton company and then Steve (cousin of the Blume family) was the Building Manager and built a structure that aided in TSR having at one time around 369 employees and systems furniture that later was unloaded at pennies on the dollar.

    4. Strangely, i'd love to read an article detailing the history and configuration of the TSR offices...

    5. No wonder TSR went out of business.

  4. Musta been the late 70s or early 80s by the looks of that space age Buck Rogers decor!

      Here's a Remax video (not sure which part of building)

      At least a part is listed as available for lease (updated 3 days ago):

      I deleted the original submission, in which I said building 1 or 2; I think there's just two parts to this building and not 2 buildings. Not sure, never been there. Just piecing the puzzle together from what I can find.

    2. Maybe she'll be quietly mourning her husband. After all, at the end of the day, most of the fans just care about Gary the gamer or about the material he created.

      She lost her spouse. For all the mocking of her calling herself "Mrs. E. Gary Gygax", that's the absolute truth.

    3. You must have forgotten the beginning of this drama.

      I had Facebook messages Gail disavowed by claiming she never signed anything as Mrs. E. Gary Gygax.

      Then she claimed she didn't think I'd share them,but they were from her.

      It was, and still is, strange.

  7. That tunnel makes her appear ready for Carousel.

    Runner!
