Arneson redux at Black Gate

Today’s post at Black Gate will consist of old news for any of you who already read my blog. It’s a quick notice about the death of Dave Arneson, co-founder of D&D. I included a photograph of a letter I sent to his family (or actually, to him, since the family directed mail to his address and I figured I should speak directly to Mr. Arneson, even though he’s dead and therefore unable to read it), so you can check that out if you feel inclined.

Arneson’s death isn’t generating anywhere near as much attention as Gary Gygax’s last year, which saddens me. Arneson always was the more quiet of the two.

Update: I found this wonderful cartoon tribute to Dave Arneson at Dork Tower.
