Farewell Dave Arneson

Just last week I noted in my month-in-review post that a year had gone by since the passing of Gary Gygax.

Now, this week, we heard that Dave Arneson, the co-creator, with Gary Gygax, of Dungeons and Dragons, had passed away. (news report here)

The duo who launched the juggernaut that is D&D are gone.

The two of them together made an indelible mark on fantasy gaming and its players.  The influence of their work will be felt for many years to come.

    61? Man.
    I can just imagine those two rolling up new characters even as I type.
    Rolls A d12 in remembrance.
