Dungeons & Dragons Co-Creator Dave Arneson Dies

Original roleplayers left orphaned.

Gary Gygax left us little over a year ago. Last Tuesday Dungeons & Dragons co-creator, Dave Arneson followed him. For those who don't know, Dungeons & Dragons is probably the earliest version of a complete, working and rewarding roleplay system.

The importance of this game in the gaming industry has already been mentioned. I am absolutely sure the six degrees of separation is true between Dungeons & Dragons and every roleplay game launched, tabletop and video game.

My first blog post about Gary Gygax could easily be mentioned here. Dungeons & Dragons marked my life. I will miss them both.

Fare thee well, friends.
