Located between the Riviera Fountain and the Riviera Center, you will find this stone placard built into the sidewalk. There are numerous other stones with various names of people or businesses, so it takes a bit of searching to ultimately locate this particular one.

Stone is a memorial dedicated to Gary Gygax, who is one of the founding fathers of the Dungeons & Dragons RPG. The design of the memorial is simple but significant for those familiar with the genre.

Next to the Riviera Fountain, along the shore of Lake Geneva, is a memorial for Gary Gygax, known for being the creator of Dungeons and Dragons,

Born in Chicago Illinois, Lake Geneva was where Gygax spent the majority of his life.
If you ever feel like paying tribute to the original Dungeon Master, stop by Gygax’s memorial "paver" Legend has it that Dungeons and Dragons players can get their dice blessed by rolling them on the memorial stone.

The memorial is between the fountain and the entrance to The Riviera Center.
