Dave Arneson the co creator of DnD with Gary Gygax has passed away last Tuesday. The original 3 brown books where for most of the older members of the club the first roleplaying rules we experienced.
And back in the day I made my first trip up to London to buy this strange little game that i had read about in Battle magazine, I remember a very rainy day and my feet getting completely soaked – I think I got my set in a little shop off of oxford street.
There is a longer notice up here on Scifi Wire. Sad news and I will be raising a toast to Dave on Monday and the start of My DND game.
