So I ran across this article tonight with the sad news that Dave Arneson has passed away. Arneson was one of the co-creators of Dungeons & Dragons. This comes just over a year after Gary Gygax, another of the co-creators passed away. I wrote about Gygax and briefly touched on the D&D experience of my youth back then.
I hope Dave is resting in peace now and to him also, thanks for the great times.
