Dave Arneson has passed away this last week.
You have found my Homepage!
original BLACKMOOR campaign map, which was originally
published well before Greyhawk & others.
is where you will find the best and most accurate
information on and from the co-creator of Dungeons
and Dragons. Dave Arneson created this game out
of many ideas that came before, so he will tell
you. And yet he was the first one to actually
compile the rules and bring the spark of creativity
to the game.
There is bound to be more then just what is expected!
FROM THE CHEEKY MAGE!
photos and downloads! - 03/13/02
Dave rencently had
a stroke, he is doing fine and is recovering nicely,
and continues to work hard on many fronts. He
recently returned to Minnesota to visit friends
and family and to let us know he is doing fine.
In the Blackmoor
Campaign page you will find both the original
"players" map and the original game
book. More coming! (Note the date
inside is earlier then Greyhawk)
It is likely Dave
Arneson will not be attending GenCon this year,
beyond the fact it will be eventually outside
of Wisconsin, the new management has dropped the
ball on the events all over and management of
the whole convention seens lacking. It is hoped
they do not continue to forget many important
things about the industry and its fans.
3rd Edition version
of Blackmoor is nearing completion and hopefully
Dave will let us all know some of the new surprises
he has in store for us!
Congrats to Lord of the Rings 13
nominations!!!!!! Hats off to Peter Jackson!
