Dave, you’ll be missed!

David L. ArnesonI have to admit I have been struggling with this post for quite some time now. Sometimes it is hard to find the right words. Especially when you don’t want it to sound silly.

I am pretty sure that you’ll probably already have heard that shortly after 11pm on April 7th, Dave Arneson passed away. Dave Arneson was one of the pioneers of our hobby, the co-creator of D&D. And he’ll be dearly missed, by his family, his friends and millions of gamers who enjoy the games he helped to create.

Good bye, Professor Arneson, you’ll be missed!
