Of course, as to how much of Mr. Gygax's work was transitioned into TSF by the author is unknown... could be a lot or could be only a little, but it is still an interesting tidbit of trivia about this roleplaying game. @Greyhawk Grognard – Actually, there is a quote in the introductory chapter of TSF rulebook where the author point-blank mentions his access to Gygax’s unpublished materials: “a screenwriter (myself) is currently developing a film script based on Mr. Gygax’s life, using unpublished works, diaries, and notebooks filled with everything from his earliest thoughts about creating RPGs to the musings of his last days on this earth” and “I have… via these materials, Mr. Gygax’s innermost thoughts on many things, especially his vision for the future of gaming — a vision that mirrors my own.” Of course, as to how much of Mr. Gygax’s work was transitioned into TSF by the author is unknown… could be a lot or could be only a little, but it is still an interesting tidbit of trivia about this roleplaying game.

I've heard of the game, but I confess this is the first I've heard of the claims that it was based on secret notes from Gary Gygax.
