Personal Stuff/Random News
Mr. Dave Arneson - co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, and the creator of the concept of single-character fantasy gaming and campaign worlds, passed on Tuesday, April 7.

There won't be as big a media outpouring this time, since Gary Gygax was always the "face" of D&D, but Mr. Arneson was the man who first sat players down and had them run a single player, describing their actions to a judge (the Chainmail system). He also created the concept of the campaign world, and wrote Blackmoor, which he had maintained up until his passing - I have local friends who are still playing it.

Raise a glass, toss some dice, and give a little prayer however you believe - the gaming community has lost the very first DM.
