Gygax Returns (Sorta)

So, some astute people noticed that there are now placeholder sites for TSR (http://tsrgames.com/) and something called Gygax Magazine (http://gygaxmagazine.com/). As it turns out, it’s exactly what it looks like. Gary Gygax’s children, Ernie Gygax and Luke Gygax are involved in its creation and they launch their first issue of the eponymous magazine next month. I, for one, can’t wait to see it!

Jayson Elliott, the editor of the magazine, posted in the thread:

Hi guys, this is Jayson. I’m the editor for Gygax Magazine.

Gygax Magazine is myself, Ernie Gygax, Luke Gygax, Tim Kask, James Carpio, and Jim Wampler. Our first issue is out in December; since it’s not finished yet, we’ve been pretty quiet about things until it’s ready.

Just to address some of the questions, I thought it was best that I leave a reply. We do own the trademark for TSR, and have since December of 2011. We are a new company, not the old TSR, as they were purchased by Wizards in the ’90s. The trademark was abandoned about nine years ago, and we registered it in 2011.

We decided the best thing to release first as TSR was a gaming magazine, because we wanted a way to bridge the traditions of the old guard with the awesome new games that are out today.

Has been the Dungeon Master for the group since the early nineties. It all started when a school friend’s mother ran U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for him and some friends. Enthralled by this new thing he'd discovered, he quickly assembled a group of his own and began running games. From that point forward, he was hooked and hasn’t looked back since. He’s run games that run the gamut from old school to indie, and is always looking to try new systems or tinker with existing ones.
