So did Gary not like the Gary Gygax memorial?

    Looks like Gary has left the building, while his dice and rulebook are still on display in the room EA created as a memorial in dungeon Doom after his death, Gary himself has been missing for awhile now from the room.

    Not saying this is important or even needs to be fixed but was curious as to why go to all the effort to make the memorial and then have the NPC removed after a couple of weeks. Legal issues or did the NPC get too bored?

    He was found to be in possession of a multitude of highly illegal items in Ultima Online. Due to the severe nature of his ToS violation, his account was terminated. Sufficient evidence was verified to justify his termination. :danceb:

    Yes, its sad but true. Turns out Gary had found a way to ring the bell for the doom crossing and while holding his breath and his F12 key - was duping 20 sided and 4 sided dice.

    EA banned his primary account for the mulititude of illegal items.

    Completely and totally off-topic here, but has anyone else ever stepped on a 4-sided die in the wee hours of the morning? They're like CALTROPS, I swear to god. :eek: :cursing:

    What about stepping on that nifty 100 sided? and having it shoot across the room as you fall flat on your back..

    I heard he had several accounts banned for his massive exploits.
    In posession of illegally hued Monster Manuals.
    Vendoring multiples of one-time event item Iron Rations.
    Abusing an exploit to have 8 followers at once.
    And his fortress exceeded the game-allowed 24x24 castle footprint.



    Personally I never used 100 sided dice, since they don't have the same % chance of landing on all the numbers. Only platonic solids give equal chances on all faces.

    I think, he got an invis spell stuck on his status bar since a while. He is still there playing with his dice and always winning by summoning monsters on the head of his visitors.
    I never did see a visitor win something from him ...
