As many of you already know, Dave Arneson died on April 7th. There was some confusion at the time, and I didn’t see confirmation of his passing until today. He was surrounded by his family, and apparently died peacefully.
Dave was the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons; the other co-creator was Gary Gygax, who died on March 4th, 2008 — GM’s Day. They had their differences, but at the end of the day they both helped to start something amazing.
I’ll keep this simple: Thank you, Dave and Gary, for creating the game that grew into the hobby that all of us love — and thank you for the many friendships that have grown out of it. You will both be missed.
Slainte, Dave and Gary.
