Dave Arneson, RIP

April 8, 2009 No Comments »

Dave Arneson passed away today after a long illness.  He was the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, the game that changed my life and resulted in marriage (my wife plays, too), kids, many friends, and a pretty cool career (ongoing) in the creative arts for me.  Unlike Gary Gygax, with whom I had a long friendship, I’d only met Dave a few times.  But though I didn’t really know Dave, I honestly wouldn’t be here writing this without him.  So, thanks, Dave.  May you have a clear star to steer by and warm winds to speed you on this new journey.  And may the destination be even sweeter than you imagined.  Godspeed.
