Requiescat in geex

We have received word that Dungeons & Dragons co-inventor Dave Arneson has been spot-promoted to demigod and transferred to the Plane of Legendary Geek Heroes, joining Mr. Gary Gygax.

Word is that once he arrived there, they immediately fell into magical combat over which of them should be noted as the first among equals.

Thanks for the gaming, Dave. Truly.

  1. You might want to post some hyperlinks to your references so I know what you are writing about. You're a little to cool for me... or maybe most humanoids.

    Is this the D&D that goes back to mainframe days? Who is Gary Gygax?

    It's okay to append Esq., but dude, what are you saying? I looked at three posts and quit.

    Uh, I did. The green sentence that begins "We have received word..." is a hyperlink explaining exactly who Dave Arneson is (as well has his difficult relationship with now-fellow-deceased-D&D-inventor Gary Gygax).

    Entirely possible.

    Yes. Which is when I first played it. Gary Gygax is the guy who, um, stole the idea for D&D from Arneson and got 99% of the credit. Again, clicking on the green hyperlink would reveal all.
