R.I.P. Dungeons & Dragons Co-Creator Dave Arneson, 1947-2009
Sad to report that the original D&D party of Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson have taken major crit and lost their saving throws, just 13 months apart. Fist Gary in March of ’08 and Dave after a two year battle with cancer. Arneson was very instrumental in the creation of D&D, as GeekDad correctly points out: “It was Arneson’s spark that transformed Gygax’s game Chainmail into the first edition of D&D, and begat everything that followed.” Hoist a D20 in their honor won’t you and wish them luck in the next module.
