Nearly two and a half years after the death of RPG founding father Gary Gygax, Gygax Games is still promising us "something good in the works." At this stage, I'll be amazed if we ever see anything out of Gygax Games, but then, as the years drag on, I find myself caring less and less. Once upon a time, I, like a lot of Gygax fans, would have lapped up almost anything the company might have produced, but, speaking only for myself, I think the window of opportunity for that has passed.
Interested though I am in the early days of the hobby, I no longer feel as if I need Gary's "lost works" in order to understand the past. I'd certainly be interested in them if they ever managed to surface, but will they? Indeed, are there even any lost works to surface at all? The mounting evidence is that there isn't in fact a huge store of, for example, unpublished old Greyhawk campaign materials lying around. Even the levels of Castle Greyhawk used in the Lake Geneva campaign seem likely to be less substantial than many of us assumed all these years.
And I'm OK with that. We don't need anything more from Gary than he's already given us. Truth be told, I doubt that, even if there were a storehouse of Gygaxian maps, background information, adventures, and other such stuff, it could make more of a difference to the hobby than those three little brown books he wrote with Dave Arneson more than 35 years ago. Everything after 1974 is gravy as far as I'm concerned -- and that includes anything Gary might have written but not released in the years after his departure from TSR.
