Rob Kuntz was there that first day of gaming with Gary Gygax with Dave Arneson. And the 6th hired employee of TSR. He has been there from the begining with TSR.

NOTE: Might also suggest reading Dave Arneson's article in Knight of the Dinner Table, issue 150. It is a reprint of the article in 1994. Also the Dedication issue to Dave.

Note: Some call the style of gaming what Role-playing Gaming is. Or OLD SCHOOL Gaming. It is a good discussion on how to best do a game in this webmasters opinion, and holds true to what Dave Introduced to the team when D&D was brought into being.
