Happy Dave Arneson day everyone! Mr.Arneson was the co creator of original Dungeons & Dragons. And he's one of the innovators of the grand game as we know it. There are so many things that I owe to Mr.Arenson as both a player & as a dungeon master. David Lance Arneson, October 1, 1947, Hennepin County, Minnesota, U.S.
For myself having experienced the Blackmoor campaign setting much later on within my uncle's original Dungeons & Dragons game. The idea of combining Science Fiction, Science Fantasy, and Fantasy in original Dungeons & Dragons goes back to Dave Arneson. In addition to Robert Kuntz as much as Gary Gygax.
Even though I didn't know Dave Arneson, his influence casts a very long shadow across my gaming table over the years through The Dragon magazine articles. And the stories of other venerable gamers over the years. And then there's the First Fantasy Campaign by Dave Areson from The Judges Guild. This book is like getting glimpse inside Dave Areson's campaign notes along with commentary about Blackmoor.
