"Yes I still have the rights. But the Index is far from being all inclusive since it contains none of newer OD&D products or the DRAGON. Or my own FFC or AIF. It was totally obsolete the years after it was published."

0D&D - "Blackmoor"


This is the supplement originally set to be the FIRST campaign world for D&D, but a marketing decision was made and was delayed to AFTER Greyhawk.

It was the campaign world and works was running in Minnesota since 1968/1969 with the MMSA.

It is also the setting that Dave played for Gary to showcase his game in Wisconsin.

Don't Give Up The Ship


Originally Dave Arneson with Mike Carr as part of their gaming in Minnesota. Long established rules, was part of the core of rules Dave used to make Blackmoor.

Gary Gygax acted as editor in both Guidon and TSR editions.

Later editions Dropped Carr's name.
Sad.... Since Carr still loves the game.
